Spring is definitely in the air Paleo Dieters! Though if you live here in Colorado you may be saying, “Happy Summer” already!
Spring is a time of change and at The Paleo Diet we continue to evaluate and implement new and creative ways to keep our site fresh, current and relevant. April was a time for us to plan for some exciting new programs we feel certain our visitors will find refreshing and beneficial. Keep coming back to visit us. We would love to hear from you. Share your ideas and tell us what you’d like to see at our site. Our Paleo fans and their input are what keep us staying on the cutting edge to deliver what you want to see! Our team will continue to put time and energy into bringing you the newest research and guiding you through the world of often confusing nutritional advice (what exactly is egg white lysozyme after all?) You can trust The Paleo Diet and our team of experts to continue to bring you the most up-to-date and reliable information and advice, based on decades of scientific research.
Thank as always for reading. We hope you enjoy!

Lysozyme in eggs may be one of those things. Before you throw your hands in the air, Dr Cordain offers some helpful advice on the in’s and out’s of eating egg whites.

The Paleo lifestyle is about more than just diet – it’s about keeping your body healthy and functional.

Coming Up This Month at thePaleoDiet.com
We are excited in May to bring you regular posts from our top team of nutrition writers. We’ll have our regular monthly offerings from Nell Stephensen, an infographic from Jane Dizon, and as always Lorrie Cordain will share a few recipes.
But of course, that’s not all. We’ll have more information about eggs (a big new study just came out that may not say what you expected) and we’ll also talk about the emerging science of meal timing.
