About Loren Cordain
Dr. Cordain is a Professor in the Department of Health and Exercise Science at Colorado State University in Fort Collins, Colorado. His research emphasis over the past 15 years has focused upon the evolutionary and anthropological basis for diet, health and well being in modern humans. Dr. Cordain's scientific publications have examined the nutritional characteristics of worldwide hunter-gatherer diets as well as the nutrient composition of wild plant and animal foods consumed by foraging humans. Over the past five years his work has focused upon the adverse health effects of the high dietary glycemic load that is ubiquitous in the typical western diet. A number of his recent papers have proposed an endocrine link between dietary induced hyperinsulinemia and acne. Currently, Dr. Cordain’s research team is exploring the connection between dietary elements that increase intestinal permeability (primarily saponins and lectins) and autoimmune disease, particularly multiple sclerosis. Dr. Cordain is the author of more than 100 peer review publications, many of which were funded by both private and governmental agencies. He is the recent recipient of the Scholarly Excellence award at Colorado State University for his contributions into understanding optimal human nutrition. He has lectured extensively on the "Paleolithic Nutrition" concept world wide, and has written three popular books (The Paleo Diet, John Wiley & Sons; The Paleo Diet for Athletes, Rodale Press; The Dietary Cure for Acne) summarizing his research findings.

It’s official—the real Paleo Diet is back. Loved for its simplicity, health benefits, and because it really works, the diet has been widely imitated since its release. Yet no one knows this plan better than Loren Cordain, its creator. As an expert in evolutionary medicine, Cordain realized we had moved away from the foods we were designed to eat—lean proteins, fruits, and vegetables—while modern staples such as sugar, salt, and carbohydrates were creating a host of 21st-century health issues, including obesity and heart disease. By eating the right food, people are healthier. But can eating Paleo be tasty? In this all-new cookbook with 250 recipes and 75 photos, Cordain makes eating Paleo a pleasure, not a burden. Ranging from Cucumber Aqua Fresca to Fruit-Stuffed Top Loin Roast with Brandy Sauce, the recipes satisfy even the most finicky. This is the book the Paleo community has been waiting for—scientific accuracy combined with great taste.
“The cookbook for the Paleo gourmet! These recipes are delicious, healthy, and visually stunning, with innovative flavor combinations and use of spices. More importantly, this book presents clearly and concisely which foods belong on the Paleo diet and which do not, along with why. Even experienced Paleo chefs will find that these recipes expand and enliven the Paleo palate.”—Lynda Frassetto, MD
Por fin llega a nuestro país una de las obras de nutrición más aplaudidas del mundo, La dieta paleolítica, que invita al lector a recuperar la forma y la salud basando su alimentación en los alimentos que consumían nuestros ancestros: proteínas (carne, pescado y marisco), verduras, frutas y frutos secos.
En el paleolítico, afirma el autor, los seres humanos no padecían diabetes ni hipertensión, no sufrían de obesidad ni tenían alto el colesterol. Sólo después, con el advenimiento de las sociedades agrícolas, empezaron a desarrollar los problemas de salud que tan acuciantes se han vuelto en nuestros días.
Loren Cordain, una autoridad mundial en la materia, acerca al lector las bases y los beneficios de la paleodieta, al tiempo que enseña a ponerla en práctica de forma agradable y sencilla. El resultado es un libro tan apasionante como delicioso, que incluye más de cien recetas y un plan de seis semanas adaptable a distintas circunstancias.
La dieta paleolítica es sabrosa, sana y fácil. Sus beneficios convencen a los médicos... y entusiasman a los que la prueban.
