Trying to convince my father who has cancer that the paleo diet is the way to eat. Can anyone suggest a concise article that outlines the principles and benefits?
Mark Sissons page on 'Primal Blueprint 101' is good for starters: http://www.marksdailyapple.com/primal-blueprint-101/
Paleoforlife has a good resources page: http://www.paleoforlife.org/resources.php
Richard from Free The Animal has a good introductory page: http://freetheanimal.com/ancestral-life-way
Hope this helps your dad!
@Mike --- you should send your father these articles:
Best of luck.
This may not be the most 'consise' article, but it's the article that changed my life.
At the risk of being self-promotional, I wrote a "brief" 5,000 word essay covering all of the basics for people new to the paleo diet. It comes out to about 7 pages.
"Concise Paleo Diet" http://naturallyengineered.com/blog/concise-paleo-diet/
It is also available as a free downloadable PDF.
Too bad about your father. This is a bit longer but pretty good.
I think most 'intro' articles will focus on what and how. I don't think too many will make the claim that a paleo diet can cure cancer, although there are probably some other articles (like the ones on free the animal) say the typical grain/starch/sugar diet feeds cancer.
So maybe you need a two pronged approach, first a few articles that establish the reason for going paleo, then 1-2 of these that say how to do it.
