I am looking for a list of reputable supporters of the paleo diet. Researchers, scientists, MDs, PhDs, etc.

Different people mean different things when they say "paleo diet," so it's not possible to make a list of people who support "it." There isn't any it. Some people think a paleo diet is one that consists mainly of meat and tubers, because that's what most paleolithic people ate most of the time. Other people think it's ok to include modern fruit even though it's different from paleolithic fruit. Other people think it's ok to include foods that paleolithic people probably never ate, like coconut oil, if the food seems healthy to them. Some people avoid saturated fat. Some love saturated fat...

It's definitely backed by Robb Wolf- he has mentioned it many times on his podcast.

Is this actually backed by Loren Cordain and and Robb Wolf? I see their pictures on the site, but there is no information on who is actually running the site.

No criteria for inclusion on the referral list is evident. Many of the listed providers do not have MD/DO credentials. Buyer beware.

I think I dispute the validity of the question. We are all reputable humans here, with really great experiences. The 'reputable' people are the folks that have gotten us into so much crap, diet and health wise. They are the ones who told our parents to feed growing children, what amounts to, pure shit.

We don't need their validation or reputation. The Dr. Oz's of the world can take a flying leap into the void. (That guy is about 17 minutes into his 15 minutes of fame...wtf?)

Sorry for the anger. Sick and tired of needing validation for something that has turned me around completely, physcially, mentally, etc.

I don't know of a list, but my favourite source of Paleo-like material from a doctor are the Drs. Eades (authors of Protein Power). While their diet regimen is not strictly Paleo (but very close), Dr. Michael Eades' blog on their website www.proteinpower.com is a great read.

Bonfirehealth.com is a beta site but Is based on paleo principles. It's run by DCs (doctors of chiropractic). It will be a great source of info in the coming months.

I dont think that there is one. We should compile one. All of this stuff is still kind of underground. I am an alternative healthcare professional (massage therapist and teacher) and this stuff is not out there. I am also in the oldschool crossfit community. My advice is to just do it. I recently had a blood test and had great blood sugar and fat levels. The only remarkable thing I had was the testosterone levels of a 16 year old. They asked me if I was on something. Just Paleo for 18 months, and not that strict! I tell clients that at least gluten free is the bestthing that they can do for thier health, hands down, and it is never popular. This is a complicated subject.
