Are you familiar with THE PALEO DIET?  

There is good reason that a paleolithic diet may serve you.  Let me back up and explain. The paleolithic diet is based on the principle that we should be eating the same foods that our ancestors ate thousands and thousands of years ago. Why? There has been a dramatic change in our food over the past fifty years and while our DNA and our biology has changed very little, these changes in our food supply has led to an ever increasing rate of obesity, chronic degenerative diseases, allergies, and especially food-related reactions.

The diet consisted of wild game, root vegetables, and berries. The result?  Our ancestors were lean, fit and free of chronic disease. Today, we no longer eat the same foods that our ancestors ate, and we are no long lean, fit or free of chronic disease.

The way we eat, on the other hand, is essentially the way we fuel every aspect of our lives, so it’s important to get it right!

This begs the question: what is the best diet? This Thursday we look at the most popular diets out there today and our Medical Director, Dr. Murdoc Khaleghi, weighs in on the pros and cons of each.
