Recent evidence suggests that people taking calcium supplementation are more likely to develop heart attacks, strokes, kidney stones, and painful bone spurs affecting their soft tissues and joints. Learn why this would be and what you should do to keep your bones healthy and strong.
A superficial understanding of the Paleo diet can have you running into the grip of powerfully pro-inflammatory toxic oils
To be, or not to be, labeled Paleo: that is the question.
Lately I've been given more opportunities to speak about the Paleo diet, which I take as a...
In addition to all their athletic accolades, Los Angeles Lakers may be on course to make sports nutrition history by ditching powder and processed in favor of whole foods.
Rich Food, Poor Food, a new book by Jayson and Mira Calton, answers many of the practical shopping questions my health-conscious patients ask.
Perhaps because many still believe corn and soy are the foundation of a heart healthy diet (and GMO dependence is a logical extension of monoculture dependence), CA Prop 37 did not pass. Better perhaps to simply avoid soy- and corn-based products.
It seems counterintuitive that we need to eat (natural) fats to burn fat, but we do. You are what you eat, but that's not the whole story! Many people on a low-fat diet lose their ability to burn fat, though they can still store it very effectively.
Discover the how you can prevent and even reverse gluten intolerance and celiac disease by looking for clues to pro-inflammatory ingredients hidden in the food label.
Canola oil can constitute up to 1/3 of the calories in even a high-end restaurant meal, making your $50 plate a health hazard. Luke and I are on a campaign to get this trans-fat containing "neutral" oil out of restaurants. Take back the tables! Wouldn't you love it if there were restaurants where people who care about their health could dine with confidence?
Listen live to Dr Cate on Sean Croxton's Paleo summit Saturday March 3! If you're considering Paleo (a low-carb, grain-free diet) my latest post will discuss my recommendations about who needs to avoid wheat and who doesn't.
Some folks who’ve taken the Primal leap—particularly those who were previously on a high-carb diet—have been faced with unexpected side effects waving them back to the world of bread, sugary fruits and sweet potato casserole. Dr Cate discusses newly discovered thyronamine compounds that trigger a hibernation sydrome.
If dairying began in the Paleolithic era, as I believe it did, then our genes have been depending on these nutrients for thousands of generations. Learn how your skeletal development can be sculpted by dairy products.
A few decades ago, people of Paleo were universally against dairy. Today, the attitude towards dairy is undergoing a transformation. Still, the official word on dairy is a luke-warm maybe rather than the resounding yes I think it deserves to be. I believe many of us can add dairy into our diet not just for good health, but also to more accurately reproduce a true Paleolithic era diet.
Luke reveals how his appearance has altered his life, and why Deep Nutrition highlights science showing that looks matter to more than just our ego, and why the ideal dietary program must be one that provides for ideal growth. When doctors (we get an average of 1 credit hour of nutrition training) advise pregnant women about a good diet for their baby's future, if they get it wrong, not only will the pregnancy suffer, the child's growth will suffer and he or she may not be as tall, as strong, as smart, or as attractive.
New insights into the cause of guten intolerance can help those suffering from all food allergies recover faster.
The China Study advises a vegan diet but author T. Colin Campbell also admits it cuts a woman's hormone levels so low that it stunts growth, delays puberty, and leads to early menopause. Dr Cate advises caution for anyone on a vegan diet.
In his interview with TV Guide, Bourdain said, “the worst, most dangerous person to America is clearly Paula Deen. She revels in unholy connections with evil corporations and she's proud of the fact that her food is f---ing bad for you.”
As expected, most of the media response has focused on Paula Deen’s love of butter (as well as sugar and deep-fried foods). But they’re missing Bourdain’s larger point.
We've all grown up equating sugar to energy, but new research suggests our bodies are engineered to run on fat...
Little wonder people eat fewer veggies than starches and sweets. Even though we all know they're great for us, they're more expensive and making them taste their best requires time and the use of natural fats, which we keep hearing over and over are bad for us.
Calcium supplements have been found to cause heart attacks. If you have osteoporosis, you may wonder: What should I be doing for my bones?
If you’re lucky enough to live in a state where raw milk is available in stores and you don’t buy it, you are passing up a huge opportunity to improve your health immediately.
