Paleo Diet Conference Free Online

For those of you reading this post late, the conference mentioned below was only free during the period of time it was in actual process. It is still available, but only for a fee.

Some of my readers have mentioned an interest in the Paleo Diet.  A physician I know just sent me an email about a free online Paleo Diet conference she is speaking at. It looked like something some of you would like to know about.  You can sign up for the conference HERE.

24 researchers, doctors, and diet experts will teach you about the paleo diet and why they believe it is the answer to our modern health problems. 

The paleolithic diet, also called the caveman diet, Stone Age diet and hunter-gatherer diet, is a modern diet based on the presumed ancient diet of wild plants and animals that various hominid species  consumed during the Paleolithic age of about 2.5 million years duration that ended around 10,000 years ago with the development of agriculture. The "contemporary" Paleolithic diet consists mainly of fish, grass-fed pasture raised meats, vegetables, fruit, roots, and nuts. It excludes grains,legumes, dairy products, salt, refine sugar and processed oils.  

If you are interested in ancestral diets, I would also suggest you read the book "Nutrition and Physical Degeneration by Weston Price, DDS. This is an amazing and eye opening book that explains how our modern diet has caused most of our chronic disease. The writer, includes photos of people from around the world and shares his extensive notes as he traveled the world looking at the changes that came over people after they started eating processed foods.
