Paleo Objectives • Explain Paleo eating and its origins. • Describe foods that are included in the Paleo plan and those that are excluded. • Discuss how this type of eating style may or may not benefit our patients. Clip Art Basic Principles of the Paleo Lifestyle • • • • Eat whole foods. Avoid processed, refined foods. Eat for proper digestive functioning. Eat for good blood sugar regulation. Clip Art – Individualize the plan to meet health needs/goals. – This is not a “One size fits all” approach! Clip Art Paleolithic Diet Origins • Prior to Agriculture ~10,000 years ago – 333-400 generations ago – No grains, legumes, farmed-raised/grain-fed animals • We ate this way for 2.5 million years: – Lean game meat/poultry/fish + vegetables/fruit • Determined by – – – – Fossil Records Current Hunter-Gatherer Diets Chimpanzee diets (We share ~98% of the same DNA.) Nutrients in wild animals and plants Cordain, Loren. The Paleo Diet, revised edition. Houghton Mifflin Harcourt: Boston, NY; 2011. Clip Art Paleolithic Diet Origins • Discordance or Mismatch Hypothesis: The human genome evolved to adapt to conditions that no longer exist. Dietary changes have occurred faster than adequate genetic adaptation could respond. This mismatch between genome and diet has resulted in today’s chronic disease. Clip Art Konner M, Eaton SB. Paleolithic Nutrition: Twenty-Five Years Later. Nutrition in Clinical Practice. 2010; 25(6):594-602. Paleolithic Evidence – Hunter-gatherers of today do not suffer from modern diseases (DM, obesity, HTN, CVD, OA, high cholesterol). – Pima Indians in America vs in Mexico – Australian HGs with T2DM – improved health s/p return to former lifestyle/diet .

Clip Art • GI Complaints: May serve as a place to start for elimination diets. • Epilepsy: Low-carb Ketogenic diets decrease frequency of seizures. • Obesity/Overweight: Weight loss • Chronic Disease Improvement • Compliance may be difficult even with most motivated individuals. Clip Art – Not the most sustainable, ecological, or economical diet. Clip Art Basic Paleo Principles are in compliance with a healthy lifestyle • • • • • Eat whole foods.
