Introduction to the Paleo Diet

Hundreds of thousands of weight loss seekers have found that the “Paleo Diet” diet is the place that diet meets delicious. Developed by legendary nutritionist Dr. Loren Cordain's The Paleo Diet allows dieters to eat their fill of nutritious meals of meat, vegetables, and fruit to get insulin resistance, high cholesterol, high triglycerides, high blood sugar levels, and high blood pressure under control–while losing up to 75 pounds in just six months.

Tens of thousands of Paleo Diet dieters, however, have found that the Paleo Diet isn't just a great weight loss tool. It is also an extraordinary way to overcome the worst symptoms of Crohn's disease, irritable bowel syndrome, gastroesophageal reflux disease, peptic and duodenal ulcer disease, inflammatory bowel disease, heartburn, constipation, diarrhea, belching, and gas. The path to digestive health on the Paleo Diet can take days or weeks, but sometimes Paleo Diet dieters need just a little help to use the diet to get long-term digestive problems under better control.

This site is all about helping you make the Paleo Diet work not just for weight loss and cardiovascular health but also for a healthy digestive tract. Sometimes you need just a few supplements to get your digestive tract ready for the benefits of the Paleo Diet . Sometimes you need to make a few additional adjustments to the 20% of the Paleo Diet that isn't “Paleo Diet,” your planned excursions to the world of regular eating for special occasions or for indulging in comfort foods up to three times a week.

And sometimes you need ongoing nutritional supplementation even with the benefits of the Paleo Diet. The nutritional aids to digestive health we recommend aren't expensive and aren't exotic. They don't interfere with prescription medications, and they aren't hard to find. And we'll explain choices in brands and how to get the nutritional boost your digestive tract needs by making the right kinds of supplementation a once-a-day, easy habit.

Everyone should read Dr. Cordain's book. If you don't have a copy, you can get the paperback here, or the Kindle edition here. We won't be rehashing what the leading expert on the Paleo Diet already says.

We will be going beyond the nuts and bolts of the Paleo Diet to help you achieve digestive wellness. We'll lay out a natural program for your specific condition, and we'll be with you every step of the way. We welcome your comments and questions. We can't give you medical advice, and we won't always answer you questions right away, but we are happy to follow up with new articles. Visit this site often for updated information on healthy digestion with the Paleo Diet.
