The Paleo Diet

Posted by Eric Seijo Mon, 11 Oct 2010 17:56:00 GMT

I've been researching diet and nutrition for quite some time now. It's a subject that (for some reason) really interests me. Maybe it's because I abused my body so much in my teens and twenties or maybe it's something that naturally happens when you get older, dunno... But my longterm plan is to run marathons and complete in triathlons and a big part of achieving this is with good nutrition.

People that know me know that as a voracious reader I am always reading diet and nutrition books, from Eat to Live to The China Study to The Engine 2 Diet (all very informative and highly workable lifestyles). Over the weekend I read a blog post by Tim Ferris on his blog which got me thinking about the Paleo Diet (a diet which is based on the diet of our Paleolithic ancestors). It's a great article and worth the read. 

I started researching on Google and found thepaleodiet.com which has a wealth of information from Dr. Cordian one of the leading experts on the diet.  I'm going to pickup some books and see where this takes me but meanwhile I plan on starting with a basic meal plan.

Here's a quick video by the author of The Paleo Solution.
