About The Paleo Diet Team

The Paleo Diet, the world’s healthiest diet, is based upon the fundamental concept that the optimal diet is the one to which we are genetically adapted. The therapeutic effect of The Paleo Diet is supported by both randomized controlled human trials and real-life success stories.

Health and Wellness in a Paleo Lifestyle

The paleolithic diet is not just a diet, it’s a lifestyle of health and wellness. Wellness in body, mind, and spirit begins in the mind – the wellspring of all the energy coursing through us that provides the connection between body and spirit. We know that our body needs healthy fuel, but so does our mind. All of our daily input – everything we read, everything we look at, and everything we think – has an impact on our emotions, our motivations, our desires. Healthy fuel for our mind is positive, transformative, and rejuvenating – it makes us feel good

Losing Weight on a High-Fat Diet

Walking around the supermarket, it does not take long to notice that there is a “low fat” or “fat-free” alternative near almost every available option. When you are starting a new diet, it may be tempting to purchase these items. After all, you are trying to lose fat, so it would make sense to eat less of it, right? While that reasoning may seem to make sense, it is actually unsupported by the evidence. There is scientific evidence that eating a high-fat diet can contribute to weight loss, as seen by researchers at Harvard. Additional studies have been conducted in

Paleo Carbs for a Healthy Diet

Clinical research studies have helped us to better understand the impact of diet on human health. Research studies comparing low-carb to low-fat diets have become more specific and selective in how they measure outcomes. Lowering HbA1C is the standard for studies involving people with Type 2 diabetes, and lipid levels such as HDL are markers for heart disease prevention. Markers for inflammation can be used to predict decreases in cardiovascular diseases and some cancers. While many are primarily interested in the weight loss advantages of a low-carb diet, weight loss is not always the only measure of good health. Markers

5 Paleo After-School Snacks

Following the Paleo diet is beneficial for the whole family. Even the youngest of children can benefit not only from the health benefits of cleaner eating, but also by establishing good eating habits that will last as they grow older. During the school year, children come home ready to eat, and they want something quick. Unfortunately, the vast majority of after-school snacks are filled with sugar, carbohydrates, and unhealthy fats or oils. A great alternative to this is to make your own snacks ahead of time. Use Ziploc baggies or small square containers to create single servings. To begin preparing
