There are all sorts of different ways to explain the paleo diet. For out-of-shape people who just want the basics of how to eat right and exercise, something like Mark Sisson's explanation (complete with reference to Grok) works very well. For other people, however, it's a real turn off.
I have a friend who doesn't know anything about the paleo diet and has expressed some interest in learning about it. He is also a doctor, and I think he'd like an introduction to the paleo diet with a bit more science behind it.
Ideally, I'd like a an article or essay that I could just email to him or something, to peak his interest (I'm not sure I can convince him to go buy a book right off the bat). So, do you have any go to articles or essays to introduce a scientific mind to the paleo diet? Perhaps something by Cordain?
As a sidenote, someone with more computer savvy than me should compile a list of types of people (doctors, out-of-shape desk job workers, young athletes, etc...) as well as the best books or articles to hook that particular sort of person on paleo. I have a lot of people ask me about the diet, but I'm always at a loss as to which source to turn them to... what might be right for you, may not be right for some... the same article that appeals to my friend on the soccer team does not appeal to my 60 year old mother... I'd find such a go to list very useful.
