John Campbell TV3 on the paleo diet and chef Pete Evans

John Campbell did a small segment on the paleo diet (mostly about Pete Evans promoting it in Australia). Have a watch – there is a lot I liked about it. I do want to add though – many are promoting paleo as a high fat, very low carb diet. While this approach works for many […]

Rheumatoid arthritis – foods that trigger, and diet that helps

In my last post I talked about how a low carb diet can be miraculous for those with an auto-immune disease.

‘Gut microbiota, immune development and function’ – how our Western diet messes with our gut bacteria

I really like this article – it references the health of paleolithic and ancestral diets in the context of their effect on our gut microbiota. While not strictly paleo as I would teach it, it has some great points. I’ve cut and pasted the abstract and  final thoughts section – evidenced based nutrition principles for […]

Menopause sucks! Even on a Paleo diet
