Two mahogany-colored plates containing paleo diet-approved food like tomatoes, lettuce, cucumbers, and meat slices

The Paleolithic diet – often known as the Paleo diet – is based on a simple and straightforward principle: If the cavemen didn’t eat it, you shouldn’t either. On the paleo diet, you are restricted from eating highly processed carbs, dairy, legumes and grains. Instead, you’ll load up on foods that supposedly your prehistoric ancestors consumed, including meat, fish, poultry, fruits, and vegetables. The typical macronutrient breakdown is about 35% fat, 35% carbohydrates, and 30% protein. Translation, this is another super high protein, high fat, low carb fad diet disguised as a healthy way to lose weight. This high-protein (especially animal protein) diet is ranked poorly among U.S. News experts, who consider it too restrictive to be healthy or sustainable. New research out of Australia has found that people who follow the Paleo diet have … Continue reading “Just say no to the Paleo Diet!”

"Thank you for your life changing work"

Dr. Janet,

Your book Cholesterol Down has changed my life in many ways. My father discovered it years ago and it turned his life around completely. He bought copies for the entire family. I am now buying copies for my friends. Thank you. I am a licensed pharmacist and I have recommended your book every chance I get.

I am writing you because I would like to find a licensed and registered dietician in my area and I want to do it as efficiently as possible. Where do you recommend I start?

I am not concerned about it being covered on my health insurance. I just want the best I can get and I do not know where to begin.

Thank you for your life changing work.

Latest Testimonial for Cholesterol Down;

Dr. Janet,

I want to thank you for your book, Cholesterol Down. I have had amazing results. My cholesterol was 315 and my doctor wanted to put me on medication immediately. I found your book and followed the Ten-Step Daily Checklist. When I returned for my annual check up my cholesterol was 229 and I had lost 30lbs. I will continue to follow the plan to get it down to normal. This was done completely without the statin that was prescribed.

Thank you again,
- Regina Gilliam,
