Favorite Paleo Goes Mainstream: What’s in the Paleo Diet?

Part Three: Caveman Diet Shows Blood Pressure and Cholesterol Benefits

CBS has been airing more segments about the Paleo diet and lifestyle. Dr. Kim Mulvihill has done a fantastic job at explaining the Ancestral Health Movement, in fact she’s made it so simple even a caveman could understand it, ha ha ha. Here are the latest videos (note: I’m having problems with the embed code, I’ll be doing separate posts for each video). I especially like the last one about saturated fat, even though she got it slightly wrong. There are tons of resources on the CBS website, including sample Paleo diets and direct links to research.

In fact, do it now. :) The site’ll be a little disorganized for a few weeks, but I should have it under control soon. Second, I discovered something cool I want to share with you. Obviously what works for me isn’t going to work for everyone but I think I made an important connection between Vitamin D and sleep quality that I’ve never heard mentioned before. Correct me if I’m wrong, I haven’t read everything out there. The major thing I took away from the Ancestral Health Symposium is that self-experimentation and the dissemination of said results is the absolute key to helping others find their Paleo solution. We have to experiment on ourselves to tweak what is optimal for us, and sometimes we just can’t think of what to tweak.
