The Paleo Diet November Digest – What We Love

It seems that every month lately, here at thePaleoDiet.com, we’ve had a big debate (like the question of nutrient density), surprising news (such as the scientific misdirection by the sugar industry,) and a whole variety of nutritional controversies. For a diet about eating lots of fresh veggies, fruit, and natural meats, we seem to have our fair share of drama. Lately, it feels like we’re a step away from pile-driving our kids’ kindergarten teacher for telling them to eat their carrots. So, here at the Paleo Diet Editorial Board, we were all too happy to spend November getting back to

November Series: Ketogenic Diets

If you’re part of the Paleo world long enough, it’s nearly impossible to avoid hearing terms like ketosis, ketones, and ketogenic being tossed around. Dig a little deeper and you’ll find out these terms frequently revolve around diets that are very high in fat and low in carbohydrates. A concept that has been part of the mainstream conscious since Dr Atkin’s New Diet Revolution gained mass popularity around the turn of the Century. But the Atkins diet is just one form of low-carbohydrate diet. When a diet drops below 100g of carbohydrates per day and particularly below 50g per day,

Eliminating Non-Paleo Foods Improves Nutrient Density

[Part Three in our Series on Why the Paleo Diet is a Nutrient Dense Diet, by Trevor Connor, M.S. and Loren Cordain, Ph.D.] Possibly the biggest criticism made against the Paleo diet is that by eliminating multiple food groups (grains, dairy, legumes, and starchy roots) the diet can cause nutrient deficiencies. In fact, this argument is a major reason why the Paleo diet remains at the bottom of the US News and World Report’s Best Diet Rankings. In their rationale, US News stated “slapping the diet with multiple low ratings, the experts couldn’t accept that entire food groups, like dairy

October Series: Nutrient Density and the Paleo Diet

It’s hard not to feel pretty satisfied when you hit a homerun in a debate. But sometimes, you hear an argument so many times that even if you can hit it out of the park, you get tired of repeating the same old counterpoints. That seems to be the case with the Paleo diet and nutrient density. How often have do we read or hear someone claim that “by eliminating several food groups, the Paleo diet prevents dieters from getting the critical nutrients they need.” It was the main argument used in the US News and World Report’s Best Diet
