Food Politics Exposed

Food Politics | The Paleo Diet

Dr. Cordain,

About 20 years ago I also read “Are you Confused?” as part of my interest in nutrition health and sports. Today I have a MSc in Nutritional Science and work as a sports dietitian in River Plata soccer club in Argentina. I ended up with your book after delving into my hobby: physical anthropology.

I have recently read your book and tried your diet for four weeks, feeling great and losing three kgs without physical activity, needless to say I’m hooked and will continue. I was very fearful and skeptical at first, imagine that after several years of brainwashing by the ADA and USDA curricula, pyramids and “research,” I thought that cutting out three food groups amounted to outright quackery and faddism. Then I read Food Politics by Marion Nestle. Coupled with the evidence exposed in your book I went for it.

Sorry to derail you from a likely busy schedule, my sincere thanks and congratulations, keep up the good work.
