Paleo diet suggests you get back to your caveman roots

Found this article on the Paleo Diet:

“Welcome to Paleo (pronounced: Pay-lee-O) living. Beware, many of the rules you thought you knew about healthy eating are about to change forever.”

It mentions Dr. Wolf’s site:

“Vroman, 30, first came across the Paleo diet about a year and a half ago when a friend directed her to robbwolf.com, the website of Paleolithic nutrition expert Robb Wolf, author of The Paleo Solution.”

And it talks about gut health .. which is a key issue in the Ayurveda Lifestyle Consultations I do:

“The largest benefit of going Paleo is that “it restores normal function to your gut and digestive system,” said Diane Sanfilippo, a holistic nutritionist who runs a Paleo nutrition blog. “It’s what most people have trouble with but they don’t even know because nobody talks about it. Bloating and diarrhea are not normal and we shouldn’t be experiencing that at all.” “

Interestingly enough, the link above is to Balanced Bites.  I will be attending a Paleo Nutrition seminar through them this Saturday the 16th,, presented by Diane Sanfillippo.

Finally, this has long been a point I have pondered:

““In a zoo, you feed a wild cat raw meat, right? But why do people bring cats home and feed them Kibble? It’s not the right diet. And that’s what we do to ourselves when we go from eating whole, fresh natural food and have to process them,” Sanfilippo said. “Nobody picks up a wheat plant and eats it.””
