Debunking the Paleo Diet: TED Talk



Ancient diet researcher Dr. Christina Warinner challenges some of the commonly held beliefs about the Paleo Diet in this fascinating talk.
Journey through history as she explores the edible landscape of our ancestors.
What’s your take on the Paleo Diet fad that is so popular?
From TED:
TED Fellow Christina Warinner is an expert on ancient diets. So how much of the diet phad the “Paleo Diet” is based on an actual Paleolithic diet? The answer is not really any of it.
Dr. Christina Warinner has excavated around the world, from the Maya jungles of Belize to the Himalayan mountains of Nepal, and she is pioneering the biomolecular investigation of archaeological dental calculus (tartar) to study long-term trends in human health and diet. She is a 2012 TED Fellow, and her work has been featured in Wired UK, the Observer, CNN.com, Der Freitag, and Sveriges TV. She obtained her Ph.D. from Harvard University in 2010, specializing in ancient DNA analysis and paleodietary reconstruction.

It should also be noted that the ancestors the Paleo Diet refers to had a very short life span. In diet history, the longest living humans have lived on a plant-based diet.

Our 2013 Spring Juice Cleanse

Hi Everyone,

Kim here. Yes, Sean & I are in the middle of another juice fast :). We're on day 27. We've talked to several people about what our current juice recipes are and I wanted to post what I sent to a friend, so you can see what we're doing: (Note - EVERYTHING we juice is ORGANIC)


Here’s our breakfast & lunch ORGANIC J green juice (ideally you should yield a 32 oz juice)



One (or half if too tart for you) lemon
1 slice off an organic ginger (do as much as you would like)
Cucumbers (I’ve been getting the packages of Persian cucumbers from Trader Joe’s) 1 package per serving
Celery (Whole foods has them for $1.99 right now, one bunch per serving) (or if you get them from Trader Joe’s one package of the 2 bunches for the juice)
Romaine lettuce (I usually get the 3 head package from Trader Joe’s and use 1 head per juice)
My add-on to this are: organic stevia to taste and organic pumpkin spice. If you want to add an apple until your taste buds change, you can.

For our dinner savory ORGANIC juice:

One (or half if too tart for you) lemon
2 large tomatoes or 3 roma tomatoes
Zucchini (1/2 package from Trader Joe’s per serving)
Red bell pepper 1/2 large or 1 small
Romaine (1 head from Trader Joe’s bag)
Arugula or spinach (for flavor) 1 or 2 handfuls
Celery (1 bunch from Whole Foods or 1 package from Trader Joe’s)
My add-on to this: Real Salt or Himalayan salt to taste, Garlic powder or granules and cayenne to taste and 1 Tbsp hemp oil or Udo’s 3-6-9 oil.

Make with LOVE! J Enjoy!

My “Master Cleanse” lemonade
3 organic lemons squeezed in a half gallon of purified water, sprinkle in organic cayenne to taste, organic stevia to taste, and 12 drops Cellfood.

My in between tea – Organic Yerba Mate instant tea by Ancient Wisdom with Sweetleaf Stevia drops in Vanilla flavor and English Toffee flavor to taste.

I also have a glass of Health Force Elixir of the Lake blue-green algae…ton’s of nutrition and great for cleansing and an late afternoon pick me up.

I've also been drinking our SkinnyBliss tea

And if you’re not overloaded with liquids, plenty of purified water to flush out toxins. J

That’s what we’ve been doing for this juice fast.
