Cave Man diet

Hi All,
For many years I have suggested that we need to eat like a 'cave man', thus the cave man diet. Now it has a more correct name; The Paleo Diet.

There are many advocates of this eating style and many authors that have capitolized on the marketing with books, etc. My favorite is "The Paleo Diet" by Loren Cordain, PhD. Dr. Cordain has done a very good job of describong the diet and the 'whys' surrounding it. For those of a technical bent, you will be amazed at the varying research on the subject and supporting evidence surrounding the life style.

Our method of emplementing this life style is simply to remove any and all grains form the diet. Yes, this means no cereals for breakfast either. Also, you are going to want to be careful of starchy root vegetables, i.e. potatoes, etc.

Having done this ourselves and with many patients and watching the results, we are convinced, and have much evidence to back this up, that modern man needs to change his or her ways. What with 30% plus of the population classified as diebetic and anothe 20% plus on the way, metabolic symdrome, things have to change, and soon.

Stay tuned as there will be much more on this subject to come.

Yours in health,
Dr. Jim
