I am constantly fighting an up-hill battle with all of the misinformation that is reported in the media with respect to proper nutrition. For example, just a few weeks ago US News reported a story on the top diets of 2013 and the Paleo Diet scored very poorly.
This review was conducted by a panel of twenty-two “experts” in the field of medicine and nutrition. What absolutely blows my mind is that this piece was one of the most incompetent and inaccurate pieces of reporting that I have ever seen. Here is a detailed rebuttal with scientific references for anyone who may be concerned about what the very inaccurate report said.
Although, I am often frustrated with media personalities within the nutrition and wellness world, Dr. David Perlmutter is one expert who has put out very impressive work. His new book is called Grain Brain and is a New York Times Best Seller. Dr. Perlmutter is a world renowned neurologist who has taken a personal interest in understanding how nutrition effects our brain. His book offers very clear mainstream scientific evidence showing the direct link of carbohydrate intake to neurological disease, obesity, and other horrible diseases of civilization.
Dr. Perlmutter offers a detailed report on how carbs are destroying your brain. And not just unhealthy carbs, but even healthy ones like whole grains can cause dementia, ADHD, anxiety, chronic headaches, depression, and much more.
Dr. Perlmutter prescribes his patients what is called a Ketogenic Diet. This is essentially a very high fat and low carbohydrate diet. Many people have asked me what the difference is between a Paleo Diet and a Ketogenic Diet. In reality, they do overlap and have many similarities. However, there are also some differences.
In today’s video blog post, I want to explain what the difference is between a Paleo Diet and a Ketogenic Diet. Make sure to post any questions or comments below!
