The Paleo Diet August Digest – Reducing Inflammation

The number of “fad” approaches promising you perfect health has been mounting over the decades – stop eating fat, cut cholesterol, take anti-oxidants, pop a multi-vitamin – and both food companies and the media have jumped on all of them. While the popular fad has changed as frequently as fashion styles, there has been a consistent commonality – they all offer over-simplified explanations for chronic disease and how you can get your high school body back. Fueled by a food and supplement industry all too happy to claim, “eat our fat-free product” or “take our supplement and you will be

The Paleo Diet August Digest – Promoting Health with a Paleo Diet

There is one all-encompassing and inescapable reason to adopt a Paleo Diet lifestyle – improved health. Early critics of the diet said there were no studies to back those claims. But in recent years, a growing body of new research has appeared showing better health in people of different ages, sex, and race. The evidence is mounting. This month, our writers addressed just a few items on the growing list of benefits of the Paleo Diet. A list that Jane Dizon at least partially summarized in her monthly infographic. Our feature article is a continuation of Dr. Cordain’s extensive research

The Paleo Diet July Digest – A Few Ways to Find Paleo Foods

Eating a healthy Paleo Diet is not always easy. It’s certainly a lot simpler in our modern world to walk around the corner and buy a Big Mac or a slice of pizza, than to find a fresh-cooked unsalted salmon fillet and asparagus. That’s particularly true in the summer when many of us are taking the family on a plane or visiting cottage country knowing we’ll be without a kitchen and the local farmer’s market we’ve come to trust. Finding Paleo-friendly foods can become a challenge. But it’s still worth the effort. Our new posts for July were all about

The Paleo Diet June Digest – Enjoying the Summer

June is the official start of summer which hopefully means warm weather, time at the beach, cottage or park, and getting together with the family around the BBQ. So here at the Paleo Diet we thought it was a good month to get away from the heavy science and diet advice and just focus on enjoying the season. That means good summer recipes and some helpful tips on the things that most of us spend a lot of time doing over the summer – travel and spending time with the kids. We hope you enjoy, and as always, thanks for

The Paleo Diet May Digest – Published After Twenty Years

 Welcome readers to the Paleo Diet’s May digest! This month we cover a variety of topics from getting ready for the summer beach season, to recent research showing why eggs might actually be a good way to start your day; despite the bad press they’ve received. But most important in May was the posting of a never-before-published book chapter by Binger Jansson, PhD, a respected colleague of Dr Cordain’s. Jannson’s life work was on salt and cancer. And even back in 1997 when he wrote his book, the scientific evidence was painting a clear picture. We’re excited that Jansson’s colleagues

The Paleo Diet February Digest – Saying Farewell

Happy Spring Paleo Diet Readers! February was a sad time at The Paleo Diet with the passing of one of the pioneers of the Paleo Diet and a close friend – Dr. Staffan Lindeberg. So, it’s only appropriate that our feature article is a moving tribute by Pedro Bastos, Dr. Lindeberg’s final Ph.D. student. Along with the tribute we also brought you our usual postings of practical nutrition advice, recipes, and interesting new science to live a healthy Paleo lifestyle. This month we took on the challenges of Valentine’s Day with recipes for a five course Paleo meal to share
