September Series: All About Calcium

One of the biggest criticisms of the Paleo diet is that it typically has a lower daily calcium consumption than a “healthy” western diet. This is especially concerning to many Paleo critics who point out that osteoporosis is becoming one of the most common chronic conditions in the western world. Calcium supplementation and milk consumption have become so ingrained as part of “healthy living” that it’s hard to leave your doctor’s office without a blood pressure test, a heart rhythm check, and a calcium prescription. Yet, despite this huge focus on increasing our calcium intake, there seems to be little

New FDA Food Label Guidelines – Steps on a Long Road

On May 20, 2016, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) announced the new standards for the Nutrition Facts Label that has graced the side of almost every food package on supermarket shelves since 1993[1]. The changes were championed by First Lady Michelle Obama’s Task Force on Childhood Obesity, citing a survey that 77 percent of Americans use the current labels to aid nutrition choices. This makes the labels a key first line in the fight for healthy eating. But what does the 943-page guidelines mean for the Paleo World? Change is a Long Road All new and revolutionary ideas, when

The Paleo Diet Response to Media on Misleading Mice Study Claims

March 16th, 2016 Dear Ms. Ellis, Thank you for responding to our letter. An open dialogue and discussion is always appreciated. While we respect that the author may have been expressing the opinions of the study’s author we do not feel that was made at all clear in the article. The article starts with a discussion of the Paleo diet without any attribution to the authors. More egregiously, the caption below the picture at the top of the article reads “Mice on a Paleo diet gained 15% of their body weight in less than 2 months”. Nowhere does it state that was

Response to Media on Recent Mouse Study

Two weeks ago, media outlets around the world published articles strongly questioning the Paleo Diet based on a single high-fat study on mice. We always enjoy seeing articles about the diet, whether it’s a testimonial, a new discovery, or even criticisms about the science because it’s only through scientific debate that we arrive at better answers. But we draw our line at unfounded claims and poor research. This week thepaleodiet.com contacted many of these media outlets asking for a correction to their unfounded claims. A sample of our letter (sent to Medical News Today) is published below: I am writing
