Why the Paleo Movement is Dying


Check out this new Instagram post from PaleoFX – the largest Paleo conference.

Makes perfect sense right? Because we all know that cavemen used to drink artificially sweetened soda in the summer, while eating lollipops. So why not sell it?

It’s a perfect illustration of the decline of the Paleo movement. Once, many years ago, it was about a powerful revolution, about massively improving people’s health. Now it’s about selling chocolate bars. Or mayo. Or even soda.

Here’s what’s been happening to Google searches of “paleo” in the last few years:

Going down. Fast.

It’s sad, because getting back to an evolutionarily normal lifestyle is super important for the future health of humanity. But unfortunately “Paleo” is now turning into a joke, and the people at the head of the movement have only themselves to blame.

Maybe it can still be saved, but that would require some drastic action I believe. What do you think?

Prevent Kids’ Cavities with a Low-Carb Diet


What can you do to keep your kids cavity-free? Feed them fewer carbs.

Dr. Roger W. Lucas, pediatric dentist, explains the link between carbs and cavities in his book More Chocolate, No Cavities: How Diet Can Keep Your Kid Cavity-Free. Simple carbohydrates such as flour and juice feed mouth bacteria that cause cavities. On the other hand, high fat and protein foods don’t.

How to Use Diet to Prevent Kid’s Cavities

The dentist even claims that it is better to give children really dark chocolate (70%+) than snacks such as juice and crackers in preventing cavities. The chocolate contains a lot of fat, that protects the teeth from the sugar.

“Now Sugar Is the Bad Guy”


Is fat or sugar the enemy when it comes to overcoming heart disease?

Last week, we wrote about an episode at CBC Radio that examined this question. Now it’s time for part 2, featuring experts such as Gary Taubes, Nina Teicholz and Dr. David Ludwig.

First, fat was the dietary bad guy. We were warned back in the 1980s to cut back on eggs, meat and full-fat dairy to avoid heart disease. So we started eating more bread, rice and pasta and fat-free snacks. But we got sicker and fatter. Now sugar is the bad guy. Contributor Jill Eisen explores the complex, and sometimes contradictory, science of nutrition — and tries to find clarity amidst the thicket of studies and ambiguous research.

“She Finally Feels Good and It Warms My Heart”


The little girl Alicia suffered from severe migraines – until her mother Isabelle decided to take out sugar from her diet. This is what happened:

The E-mail


The story I’m going to tell is about my daughter Alicia, age 7, who suffers from terrible migraines that have gotten worse over time. She throws up and has to lay down in a dark, silent room for many hours, completely unable to do anything. Last fall she had several migraines per week. I went to the doctor, like so many times before. They increased the dosage of her blood pressure medicine.

I called for X-rays and a thorough screening. It showed “nothing of significance”. After Christmas, doctors prescribed pills that she were to take six times per day. This made me feel that we’ve had enough. I thought that we should try eliminating sugar from her diet and see what would happen. We allow her to have stevia, erythritol and fruit (or should I say us, because we didn’t want her to feel alone with her new diet).

She didn’t have a single migraine episode in January until she had sugar on the 30th when she had a party. We were able to lower her dosage. As of today (26th of April), she hasn’t had another migraine episode since the 1st of January, other than three times when she consumed sugar. She went completely off her medications two months ago.

She finally feels good and it warms my heart. I hope that this story can serve as an inspiration. Especially to other children that suffer from migraines. And then again, we weren’t people who consumed a lot of sugar before either.

Best, Isabelle
