Many researchers now consider diet to be the most important facet in maintaining a person’s health … and unless you’ve been camping out in the Gobi desert for the past decade, you probably know that Americans are the fattest group of people on the planet. Despite the myriad of new diets offered each calendar year, we’re getting even fatter. As a result, we are also considerably less healthy as a society.
The Paleo Diet (also sometimes referred to as the Hunter-Gatherer Diet, the Paleolithic Diet, the Caveman Diet) has introduced thousands of people to the concept that the healthiest diet is one based on the way our Paleolithic ancestors ate. If you are overweight, on this diet you will lose weight … and it will be long term, permanent weight loss. Dr. Jennie Brand-Miller (Professor of Human Nutrition, University of Sydney), when reviewing the book, The Paleo Diet, called it “the most nutritious diet on the planet.”
So, what the Paleo Diet is proposing is nothing less than the world’s healthiest diet … not only will you lose weight from this diet (read success stories»), but you will have many health benefits that you may not initially think are related to weight loss. All of our information is backed by peer-reviewed scientific research from Loren Cordain and other Ph.D researchers and medical doctors.
