Dr. Cordain,

Our 15-year-old son competes in competitive swimming, and has had acne for several years. Several weeks ago, we decided it was time to help him to eat The Paleo Diet®. His acne has cleared up like “unbelievable.” Last weekend, he had a big invitational meet. He swam like never before in his 6 years of competition. All who saw his times were amazed. His coach said, “He was racing.” He is already lean, anyway. But in these past few weeks, he is looking more fit than ever. It as though his muscles are more obvious, especially in his back. Now, he trains under a college coach 6 days/week. His training is quite intensive. He realized after this past swim meet, and as his acne has cleared that there is something to The Paleo Diet. He, himself, has noticed changes in stamina and body tone/shape.
