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…
Below is a recent success story from a Paleo Diet fan:
Thank you for answering questions I’ve had for the past 15 years about why this diet makes my RA better. I just wish you could get the point across to all the rheumatologists out there!
I have had RA for 35 years…. first onset 1978 at age 37, finally diagnosed as adult onset Still’s Disease in 1983. My rheumatologist had me on just about every high powered RA drug available for the next 20 years. I was truly blessed by having side-effects to most of them…
