About Paleo Works


The Official Stuff – Paleo Works Ltd

Our role is to show you how eating  The World’s Healthiest Foods is enjoyable, simple, fun and affordable.

We believe that optimal health is much more than just the absence of disease; it is a state where you enjoy all the energy, vitality and benefits life has to offer. The key to achieving optimal health is in eating nutritionally dense real foods. These are the foods that have a direct effect on how you feel, how much energy you have, quality of life and longevity. There is clear and definitive scientific evidence that proper nutrition plays an important and significant role in reducing the risk of degenerative diseases, and in providing long-term health and longevity.

Paleo Works: The People

Katie

together with Michael my amazing husband, we are Paleo Works.  I am a nutrition and kitchen coach with over 20 years experience in the diet industry.  My passion is health and well being through evolutionary nutrition.

“We love our diet, we love our life, eating the right foods makes such a profound difference to every aspect of life, so much is known and yet by so few – this has to change”. 

Mike 

paleo-works-mikePrior to 2008 and like many others I had spent much of my life eating the wrong foods. This in turn led to several associated health issues aside from gaining weight. But at the time as I was unaware of the true impact diet can have on health and well being, I remained active and outgoing the best I could. However as I grew older the results of my poor diet were not just beginning to show, but were indeed becoming a burden. Consider a life with obesity, COPD, Asthma, GERD and a list of minor illnesses as long as your arm, with monthly trips to the doc’s and time off sick. A familiar story of getting old you may say… However I began to research possible root causes to my afflictions and if indeed anything further could be done. I decided to study nutrition, in particular evolutionary nutrition. What I discovered was at first met with scepticism and disbelief, but as I dug deeper, reading my text books, listening to lectures, studying scientific papers and reports it became more and more enlightening.

I thoroughly enjoyed all my studies as has Katie who was by my side throughout as we studied together. The knowledge we aquired cannot be reserved for a select few, indeed everyone has the right to optimal health.

The problem with diets and dieting is, everyone is in effect being led up the garden path when it comes to nutrition. In particular when it comes to what constitutes a healthy diet, take a look at the governments ‘Eatwell Plate‘ and recommendations on exercise, this is completely the wrong approach. Why? because not one study into obesity has ever addressed the root cause. This in turn only ever treats the symptoms, it places a sticking plaster on a haemorrhaging wound.

“It’s time to set the record straight, it’s time everyone knew the real truth about what makes them fat and how to avoid the very diseases we’ve come to accept as inevitable – it’s time to wake up”  

Weight loss is easy when you know How To Diet

To this end we created Paleo Works…

…Eat well, Get sleep and Thrive.

  1. Much enjoyed reading your site. I wondered whether you would consider allowing me to write a guest post on your blog or whether you would like to review my new ‘paleo’ book for your blog?

    More info at http://www.instinctive-fitness.com.

    • Hello Olly, thanks for stopping by! Absolutely would consider both – subject to approval (from both parties) prior to publication on our site. Warm regards PS we are passionate about this paleo thing and want people to truly flourish in this one shot at life, want people to lift their game and live well and if you can add to this in anyway, bring it on 🙂

  2. Thank you for liking my Health Industry blog post. I am a massive fan of the Paleo diet concept and am currently converting as many meals as possible over to it (though I’m struggling with eating meat for breakfast!). Your site is fab – will be following your posts and reading through previous stuff too!

  3. Hello there, I find your blog very inspiring and have nominated you with a Liebster Blog Award. You can read about it here:

    Have a fab day! 🙂

  4. Good on you for going on this journey! My husband and I are headed gradually in a slightly more Paleo direction ourselves; though I don’t know that we’ll ever be truly strict about it, the more we cut back on the processed and unnatural stuff, the better we both feel. Keep up the encouraging work!
    Kathryn

  5. I have just placed an article in my food blog Boomer Cuisine and a link to your excellent site about the Paleo diet.
    Kudos to you both for crusading to get us humans back to health again!

  6. wow – I am impressed by the true information you have on your site and will be linking your site on my blog: http://cultivatingourselvestogether.com as a possible resource for my readers. Thank you!

  7. You have put a lot of thought into your blog and I appreciate your positive energy to creating a healthy diet geared to what is natural. Keep up the good work!

  8. To Live Boldly! A family member just recently forwarded an article on the paleo diet to us, knowing that our son has autism. Since the age of 3, he has followed a gluten/casein free diet which we originally started due to wheat allergies and have kept him on after reading research on the relationship b/w diet and autism symptoms. I look forward to reading more about the paleo diet, specifically.

  9. Thank you for liking my recent post on doctor patient confidentiality. I really agree and like what you are doing here. Would you like to be a guest on my radio show, The Harmony Health Hour? We are live on http://www.jackaloperadio.com on Friday’s at 6 pm Central time.

  10. Hi there, thanks for ‘liking’ my recent post – I’m looking forward to spending some time getting to know your site!

  11. I am glad you liked my post”is your breakfast cereal killing you” on my blog. I have looked at your blog and I like what I see. I have subscribed to your blog as I feel we have a similiar message to convey which is sustainable weight/fat loss.

  12. Thanks for stopping by my blog and liking my post. I’m very interested in ketogenic and paleo dieting, since they’re so incredibly effective. I’m sure I’ll be back often to see what you’re saying!

  13. Ruth Bayang-Stoffel

    Thank you for liking my blog. We need to spread the message of stabilizing blood sugar to release fat!

  14. Hey there. Thanks for visiting my blog. I’ve heard Dr. Joe speak at health forums in our city. His message is the same: we wouldn’t need expensive medical interventions if we would take responsibility for ourselves. I am a member of the American Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics; please check back periodically for my food scrounge news. If you’re looking for something specific, let me know and I’ll access the Evidence Analysis Library.

  15. Hi there, thanks for dropping by my blog, it’s always great to meet more Paleo folks 🙂
    All the best, PaleoIrish

  16. Thank you for liking my post, What’s in your pet’s food? Cool blog. I will be reading a lot more of it!

  17. Hey you two, what a great Blogsite! So first, thanks for calling by Learning from Dogs. Have subscribed and will be following your writings with great interest. You presumably have come across http://foodfreedom.wordpress.com/ Anyway, best of luck from this old Londoner living out in Arizona!

  18. I can’t find your e-mail address, so I’ll use this method of communication. As per your permission, I have used material from your posted articles for my readers on http://www.triumphoverdepression.org. I start each of my postings with a link back to http://www.paleoworks.wordpress.com. The two postings will appear on January 30, 2012, and February 1, 2012. The premise of my blog is that it takes attention to the body, soul, and spirit to overcome depression. The starting point is the body, and your blog site addresses that quite nicely.

  19. Thanks so much for visiting my page. I have just started with this blogging thing. I find your site interesting and my daughter has been faithfully doing the Paleo diet for her and her family for several months. They notice a difference in the way they feel.

  20. Thanks for visiting my blog! You have great Paleo information and resources

  21. Thanks for visiting my blog. Love your stuff. It is great to have so many resources on the web.

  22. Oh, yikes. This is the second time I’ve been reminded of the paleo diet in one week. Time to get back to steak for breakfast, I suppose. Hmmm, on second thought that sounds like a smashing idea!!!!
    Blessings to you,
    Alyson (mamjoyx9)
