A lot of diet experts and academics have withheld comment on the Paleo diet. I understand their hesitation to embrace a lifestyle that is rather radical without extensive data and research. It’s true that longitudinal studies have no been completed to show the effectiveness of the paleolithic lifestyle on people. One thing, however, that I think trumps all of that is your own body. If you give the paleo diet a try for 30 days, do you feel better? What is your body telling you? Given the wide array of human response to dietary lifestyles, this may be more important than any study that could come out. Listen to your body, understand its messages, you’ll be fine.
