Hello Dr. Cordain,
I wanted to send you a note to connect and introduce myself. Almost two years ago, I read your book, The Paleo Diet, and forever changed my life’s direction.
My culinary training is classical French with a twist of all that makes New American. I ran a successful catering business in Atlanta for 7 years and in searching for a healthy way for my wife and I to eat, I read your book. The smiles started from the first page when you gave tribute to S. Boyd Eaton. I catered a family BBQ for Boyd and Daphne a few years back! (They served corn by the way).
Reading on a flight back from London, I found myself not able to put the book down, and not able to find flaw in anything you wrote. I said to myself this is it! I proceeded to go in 100% and had amazing results. Losing 35 lbs in 2.5 months, 10% BFI loss, increased muscle mass, just doesn’t happen when you are a chef. My energy, and drive skyrocketed as I felt half my age.
I knew this was the direction not only for me, and my wife but my customers. I developed my product Pre-Made Paleo and never contracted another non-Paleo meal since. Our meals are developed with classic technique using Paleo ingredients. My vision for my company is to change the way people eat. We now have a production kitchen focused completely on Pre-Made Paleo Meals and products that ship to all 50 states!
Thank you so much for your research, and shared knowledge.
All the best,
Chef Richard Bradford
