The 2013 Ancestral Health Symposium will be held in Atlanta, GA from August 15th through August 17th for all low carb dieters, diabetics and Paleo enthusiasts.
When people begin to learn about the Paleo diet, they are usually excited to hear they can add in fruits and a few starches. In my case, I learned that I could eat a few peaches without negative side effects. However, I was also running upwards of 30 miles per week and training for marathons. Most of us are not expending that much energy on a daily basis. To lose weight, we need to be low carb, even if we are eating “real food”.

Paleo refers to the idea that we can take cues from the hunter-gatherer diets of our pre-agricultural ancestors to determine the best – dare I say the evolutionary – diet of human kind. It is nearly impossible to achieve a truly paleo diet; you’d have to eat only local wild foods in season; one piece of cultivated fruit or pinch of a spice from another part of the world and you’re no longer truly authentic.
