Is the Paleo Diet the Answer?
Or is it Just Another Fad?
24 researchers, doctors, and diet experts turn back the clock to unearth ancestral solutions for our modern health scourge. The answers are ancient history…but certainly not extinct.
It seems like every month or two a new diet emerges wielding sensational claims of speedy weight loss along with empty promises of eliminating modern disease as we know it.
The media and fat loss gurus peddle these “new” schemes as the end-all-be-all of diets.
But is there really anything “new” under the sun when it comes to nutrition and healthy living?
Or does the truth — and lasting results, for that matter — reside in the was-before-and-still-is concept of the Paleo Diet?
Maybe — just maybe! — our hunter-gatherer ancestors of many centuries past had this thing all figured out. Then again, maybe Paleo is just another “flavor of the month” destined to die out like the South Beach, Zone, and cabbage soup diets and bound for extinction like the woolly mammoth.
I mean, really — how could primitive man and woman have known anything about diet and nutritional science? Cavemen wore loincloths not lab coats!
Well, according to our panel of experts — well, most of them at least –, this old-school Paleo lifestyle has not only withstood the test of time but the intense scrutiny of science as well.
But don’t take my word for it! It’s your health. You — and only you — call the shots when it comes to how you eat, move, and live. And with that in mind, you owe it to yourself to base these decisions on the best information available.
It is my great pleasure to present this information to you throughout this 8-day online extravaganza I like to call The Paleo Summit.
For 8 Days, You Will Learn the FACTS about All Things Paleo from the Best of the Best Experts I Could Find — for FREE!
Beginning on Sunday, February 26th you will have an all-access pass to the research, experiences, and ideas of a who’s-who of the health world.
Not only will you become familiar with a ton of Paleo science and perspective — such as the evolutionary evidence for the optimal human diet — but you’ll also learn how to implement a new (err, old) way of eating and living that works for you.
