I had to post this video on the Paleo diet in a nutshell. My friend Cindy just sent it to me, by email knowing that it would make a great blog post.

The Nutrient Rich Revolution, Eat Better, Not Less is based on the idea that we are eating foods that serving our needs. Losing Weight the Nutrient Rich Way is no different; you want to eat foods that are serving your needs. But there is a prevailing thought out there that we must not eat for … Continue Reading!
