Loren Cordain is an American scientist who specializes in fields of nutrition and exercise physiology. He is notable as an advocate of the paleolithic diet and a researcher into paleolithic nutrition; he wrote numerous peer-reviewed articles on the subject, as well as several popular books, most notably, "The Paleo Diet". Loren Cordain got a B.S. in Health Sciences from Pacific University, Forest Grove, OR, in 1972. He is currently a tenured professor in the Department of Health and Exercise Science at Colorado State University.
In 1978 he got his M. Sc. in Exercise Physiology at the University of Nevada-Reno, Reno, NV. In 1981 he was awarded his Ph.D. in Exercise Physiology by the University of Utah, Salt Lake City, UT. His title, The Paleo Diet, made The New York Times Best Seller List in 2013.
A breakthrough nutrition strategy for optimum athletic performance, weight loss and peak health based on the Stone Age diet humans were designed to eat.Paleo-style diets are all the rage as fitness enthusiasts, including the booming nation of CrossFitters, have adopted high protein, low-processed-food diets to fuel their exercise. It all began with the publication of the book The Paleo Diet by renowned scientist Loren Cordain, Ph.D., who presented a breakthrough plan for weight loss and disease prevention without dieting or exercising.
In 2005, Dr. Cordain joined with endurance coach Joe Friel to write The Paleo Diet for Athletes. It sold 8,000 copies that first year, but it has sold even better as a backlist title—more than 20,000 units in both 2010 and 2012. Now, the authors offer an updated and revised edition of The Paleo Diet for Athletes specifically targeting runners, triathletes, and other serious amateur athletes.
Cordain and Friel show that by using the foods our bodies were designed to eat—protein, fruits and vegetables, healthy fats and even some saturated fats--anyone can achieve total-body fitness and dramatically improve the strength and cardiovascular efficiency. The Paleo Diet for Athletes gives specific guidelines for what to eat before, during and after a workout or competition along with simple, tasty recipes packed with power and wholesome ingredients.
