“The message is stick to healthy foods and stay away from processed foods,” says Loren Cordain, author of The Paleo Diet and a newly retired professor in the Department of Health and Exercise Science at Colorado State University. “Whether you want to call it Mediterranean, Japanese or Paleo, that should be the message.”
It is on this basis that Cordain rejects Paleo’s wooden spoon for being the worst of 32 diets according to a US News and World survey.
