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 you as always for reading. We hope you enjoy!

Saturated Fat and Omega-6: Should One Replace the Other? Part I & Part 2

By Christopher James Clark, B.B.A.

Are saturated fats bad for you and polyunsaturated fats good for you? The media has certainly told us so, but the science may not be so black and white. This two part series by Christopher James Clark explains what the science says and more importantly what insights our Paleo template offers.

Articles from April

By Trevor Connor, M.S.

Two studies were just published exploring whether both sugar- and artificially-sweetened beverage are associated with dementia and Alzheimer’s disease. We hope you’re already avoiding sugar-laden soft drinks, but the results of the research may also have you thinking twice about the zero calorie versions as well. Of course, Dr Cordain addressed artificial sweeteners two years before either study.

Nell’s Corner: Gaining Perspective on Athletic Injury

By Nell Stephenson, B.S.

The Paleo lifestyle is about more than just diet – it’s about keeping your body healthy and functional. For a dedicated Ironman triathlete like Nell Stephenson, diet is not an issue, but staying injury-free can be the true challenge. Nell shares her personal experience with the pain (both physical and mental) of a sports injury.

Coming Up This Month at

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.

As always, our team appreciates your support for The Paleo Diet. We look forward to and encourage your feedback on our website and Facebook!
