Paleo Diet Truths & Myths Debunked By Dr. Loren Cordain Ph.D. # 20

Episode #20 Paleo Diet truths explained by Dr. Loren Cordain, Ph.D. the founder of The Paleo Diet. The Paleo Diet is described in detail by the creator and researcher of the Original Human Diet. In this interview Dr. Cordain describes the importance of exercise and a Paleo Diet that is low in sugar and carbohydrates as was found in nature. Following this sort of Paleo Diet template is the fastest way to shed weight. Dr. Cordain explains in this interview the dangers of honey and other Paleo sugars as they wreck blood sugar and are to be avoided as they are similar to high fructose corn syrup.

The original humans were naturally lean and had six packs Dr. Cordain says in this interview as they ate a diet that was legume free, grain free, and dairy free. The Paleo Diet was low carb in nature and low in sugar which promoted an anti-inflammatory state within the body. This is why many popular athletes and people with autoimmune issues follow a Paleo Diet.

Dr. Cordain also discusses Chris Kresser appearance on Dr. Oz this year and his lack of education when it comes to saying legumes should be apart of a Paleo template. Dr. Cordain talks in depth on why legumes have no part in a Paleo Diet and backs this with actual research. The Paleo Diet is all about balance and Dr. Loren Cordain discusses bloggers and authors and the over use of of higher carb and sugar recipes that is stalling consumers of these recipes or possibly causing weigh gain instead of weight loss.

    So let me get this straight . . . a steady diet of Doritos and Mountain Dew, and hot dogs and boxed mac-N-cheese, and a 6-pack of beer each night is NOT good for my body? LOL

    I work as a general practice PA here in the U.S., and whenever I talk about any sort of food or nutritional advice with my patients who are 100lbs overweight, diabetic, hypertensive, tired, with constant constipation and/or diarrhea, full of pain and inflammation . . . I swear to god they look at me like I've grown an extra head when I try to convince them that the food they eat is more important than the drugs they seek.

    Do you guys have an episode or article talking about how Asian and East African's having extra Alpha-amylase genes (and potentially have had an extra 10k years of evolutionary adaptation to digest things such as rice)?

Dairy, sweets aIong with aImost aII prepared ingredients are generaIIy away. So that you can picture preciseIy why Iots of peopIe are empIoying the dietary pIan to further improve their particuIar heaIth insurance & shed weight.      :)

    HOLY SNAP – when I started watching this video, I had no idea you guys were affiliated with Julian Bakery (which I just heard of 3 weeks ago to order coconut wraps!) thanks for your wraps, they're awesome! Plus I totally agree – I have an auto-immune condition (Crohn's) and it put me in remission, got me off meds, and has kept me out of the hospital with no flares or pain or any other problems. Paleo is a LIFE SAVER.
