Can You “Out-Sprint” Type-2 Diabetes

Our Paleolithic ancestors had to sprint to survive; to fend off predators or to hunt their prey. The “fight or flight” response (and thus sprinting) is one of our most primal survival mechanisms. It’s hardwired into our DNA. Today, we’ve unfortunately outsourced most of our daily movement to cars, trains, and escalators, and we remain sedentary most of the day. Our bodies adapted to this frequent high-intensity fight or flight response and may very well have learned to need it. Today, most people simply don’t get enough movement in their day and it comes at a steep cost for your

Fasting – Ancestral Cure For Diabetes?

Today, we are bombarded with high-calorie foods; sweetened coffee, sugary drinks, processed snacks, and convenience food. This environment of caloric excess is at odds with our evolutionary past. In combination with our modern sedentary lifestyle, this sets us up for obesity, type II diabetes and other metabolic diseases. Our hunter-gatherer ancestors did not eat three meals a day, nor did they snack at regular intervals. Their eating patterns would regularly involve intermittent periods of reduced food (energy) intake.1 Now, some in the science community are saying that mimicking this intermittent fasting could be a simple, convenient, and cost-effective ancestral strategy

Circadian Rhythm & Late-Night Eating – An Ancestral Perspective

Renowned evolutionary biologist Theodosius Dobzhansky said “nothing in biology makes sense except in the light of evolution.”[1] Throughout our evolution, we have lived in daily cycles of light and dark. These cycles have led to the development of natural circadian rhythms that impact many aspects of our health and vitality. Circadian rhythms are triggered by the bright light stimulus in the morning and darkness in the evening. The hypothalamus area of the brain – specifically the suprachiasmatic nucleus (SCN) – is the master regulator, synchronising the body’s circadian clock based on information it receives from photoreceptors in the eyes in

The Endurance Training Dilemma – High vs. Low-Carb

Endurance athletes train hard and train often. Regardless of whether you’re an elite competitor or trying to achieve a new personal best, maximizing your recovery and performance with the right nutrition plan is an absolute “no-brainer.” The problem is, with so much conflicting information out there, how can you find the best approach to meet your goals? Traditionally, endurance athletes have focused on high carb diets and gels during exercise to fuel workout performance. However, recently more and more athletes eating low-carb, high fat (LCHF) and ketogenic diets have promoted the use of fat as the ideal fuel source by

Can Peanuts Be Part of A Paleo Diet?

Everybody seems to love peanut butter. Entire websites can be found dedicated to the pursuit of adding the smooth, salty and highly palatable spread to seemingly every possible food. That said, peanuts (and peanut butter) aren’t Paleo. In fact, peanuts aren’t even nuts at all – they’re part of the legume family – and therefore off limits on a strict Paleo diet. The problem is that for many people peanuts (and more specifically peanut butter) are a “make or break” food choice that might heavily influence their decision to jump into a Paleo lifestyle. So, let’s take a closer look

How to Achieve Ketogenic Gains with a Paleo Diet

Part Two in Our Ketogenic Diet Series The Paleo diet approach shares many similar traits to a ketogenic diet and a few modifications to your Paleo diet may make it possible to achieve the best of both worlds. In part one of this series on ketogenic diets, Christopher Clarke outlined the physiology of a ketogenic diet and its significant benefits with a myriad of chronic health conditions including weight gain, diabetes, metabolic syndrome, cardiovascular disease, neurological conditions and certain cancers.1,2 Now, the practical part… How can you transform your Paleo diet into a ketogenic Paleo approach? #1 Reduce Your Carb

The Dangers of Artificial Folic Acid

(Recently Dr Cordain talked about the issues with folic acid and why it’s not the same as folate on the Paleo Diet podcast. We recommend listening to the entire episode to get the full science, but if you want a shorter explanation in clear lay terms including recommendations for your diet, then please read on!) The advent of synthetic folic acid was considered a god-send for expecting moms. That’s why in 1998, the USDA started “fortifying” all wheat containing products like bread, pasta, wraps, and bagels to help prevent the neural tube defects seen in mother’s who had low levels

Promoting Calcium Balance Health on a Paleo Diet (Easier Than You Think)

When you talk about calcium, the conversation typically shifts quickly over to bone health and osteoporosis. There’s a reason: the ingrained fear of bone loss is very real. The US Surgeon General’s Report states that one out of two people over the age of 50 either has osteoporosis or is at risk of developing it.1 In fact, osteoporosis accounts for more hospital days for women over 45 than diabetes, heart attacks or breast cancer. Further, fragility fractures are the leading cause of hospitalization in adults over 65.2,3 These staggering statistics lead most people, including many doctors and nutritionists, to think

Simple Ways to Reduce Omega-6s and Increase Omega-3s in Your Diet for Better Health

If there’s one area where the nutrition media seems to sing a different and more confusing tune every week, it’s with their messages about fats. Low fat was good for us, now it’s not. Saturated fats may not be the heart-clogging poison we thought. And what exactly are trans fats? It’s enough to make us throw our hands in the air and reach for the nearest burger. Fortunately, one message has been consistent: omega-3 essential fatty acids (EFAs) are extremely beneficial for your overall health.   The problem is, not all sources of omega-3 fatty acids are created equal. In

Ancestral Foods for Antioxidant Health

At one point or another we’ve probably all wondered how to increase the antioxidants in our diet. Fortunately, a Paleo diet is an important and easy way to maintain antioxidant health. But before we explain how, it’s important to know why. In the first part of this series on antioxidant health, Christopher James Clark explained that free radicals are highly unstable and reactive molecules with an unpaired electron. While they aren’t inherently “bad”, a chronic excess can lead to oxidative stress which damages your body including your DNA, your cellular membranes and worsens chronic disease progressions. Poor health or diet,
