What “Paleo” Means to Me

“What is Paleo?” It’s a question I get asked a lot. I find that often the person asking has some pre-conceived notion of what Paleo is (and they usually don’t have the highest opinion of it), and a lot of what I say to them has to work to overcome that initial bias. Hopefully more […]

Everything in Moderation

The first time I suggested to Stan that he might improve his obesity, diabetes, and irritable bowel by eliminating grains from his diet, he thought it over seriously. He took the suggestion home to his wife, somewhat of a gourmet chef, who dismissed the idea of eliminating an entire portion of the palate. “That’s ridiculous, […]

Fiber on LCHF Diets: Benefits for Weight Loss and Beyond

Over the past few months, several women have contacted me  expressing frustration at being unable to lose weight despite strictly following a LCHF diet. When I ask whether they’re including high-fiber plants like brussels sprouts, berries, nuts, and dark chocolate, the response is typically, “I avoid those because they’re so high in carbs. I limit […]
