Nora Gedgaudas — The ‘Holy Grail’ of Primal Health: Benefits of a Fat-Based Caloric Intake for Body and Brain

Dietary fat has been the subject of considerable derision, misinformation and disinformation through medical authorities, public policy campaigns, conventional nutritionists and the mainstream media for most of the last century. Conversely, dietary carbohydrates have been lauded as foundational to human dietary needs.
Human physiological makeup and the history of our ancestral diet, however, has not been consistent with these claims. Dietary fat is demonstrably central to our most basic energy, metabolic and physiologic needs and by restricting its intake we foster a much less healthy and unnatural dependence upon carbohydrates, to the considerable detriment of societal physical and mental health.

Nora Gedgaudas, C.N.S., C.N.T. is the author of the international best selling book, “Primal Body, Primal Mind: Beyond the Paleo Diet for Total Health and a Longer Life”. She is an international speaker on the subject of paleolithic diets and operates a successful private practice in Portland, OR offering neurofeedback and nutritional therapy/consultation services.
