Is the Paleo Diet gluten free?

Yes, when we stop eating grains and choose more vegetables, protein and fat, we’re automatically stopping wheat and the other gluten grains. There’s more to Gluten Free than not eating wheat flour.  Over time you’ll want to look at labels of body-care products, make-up, and packaged foods of all kinds to look for wheat or gluten.

Raving Reviews for This Diet

I Love this DVD!
Wow! I always knew there was something in my diet that was causing my health problems. I took the 30 day challenge discussed in the DVD and not only regained my health, but I lost weight in the process. My mind is clearer and I feel great. Thank you Beverly Meyer!!  5 stars
Packed with Lots of Good Nutrition Insights

Beverly Meyer is a whirlwind of information and experience. She has been in the natural healing arts for several decades, both as a patient and as a healer.  Beverly has created the only DVD that I am aware of discussing a whole food diet with a primal/ancestral bias. It’s called “The Diet for Human Beings.” 5 stars
Listen to the podcasts

If you aren’t sure about buying this, listen to a couple of Beverly’s podcasts (free on iTunes) first. The Human Diet is life-changing.5 stars
Nicely paced so you can stop and think

This video has review slides that come up every 3 minutes or so. I watch with my family and we can decide if we really understood everything just said or should we go back a bit to review. Nice to watch over several days rather than all at once. There’s lots of good info here! 5 stars


What is Paleo? Isn't it primarily meat, like The Atkins Diet?
Paleo (and The Diet for Human Beings) emphasize vegetables, proteins and fats with moderate fruit or starchy carbs. Organic vegetables, pasture-grazed and wild proteins, fats from quality sources with fewer processed foods and sugars. Atkins did not make that distinction and it was extremely limited in vegetables. Shopping, cooking and eating this way is a lifestyle, not a “diet.”
Can’t I get Paleo cookbooks and the recipes will show me what to eat?
Recipes do not explain why you’re making certain choices. They don’t teach you how to shop or order in a restaurant. Different books emphasize different things that may not be balanced. For example, there are lots of “paleo” desserts books.
Books take too much time. Is this an easier way to learn?
Absolutely! Watch the video on your computer, phone, tablet, or TV over several days if you like.
Will this help me explain why I’m eating this way?. My friends think I'm on a gluten-free fad diet.
Watch the video and understand WHY humans evolved with a certain diet, just like any other animal that has its own best diet. Once you learn why, you can better explain why it works naturally for a lifetime. Or watch the video with them or give it as a present.
Why is it called the Diet for Human Beings?
All humans have the same digestive system and evolved eating in a certain manner, no matter what part of the globe we’re from. We never ate grasses and grass seed like an herbivore does
Will it help me be healthier overall?
This diet is especially good for autoimmune issues, blood sugar, mood swings, gluten free diets, anxiety and Irritable Bowel. The key to The Diet For Human Beings is to modify it for your particular needs. Maybe omit the eggs and tubers. Maybe add more fat. Do the basic template, then experiment!
Will I lose weight?
Yes, if you need to. More importantly, your body composition and shape will change. Excess belly weight and bloating may reduce quickly for example. You may need to work on other health issues as well, such as hormonal imbalances.
Will I be hungry like other diets?
This is not a weight loss diet. There are plenty of fats and proteins and lots of filling vegetables. You won’t be hungry!   Examples of meals: organic sausage and eggs with guacamole for breakfast; wild salmon and blueberries on a big salad for lunch; lots of sauteed veggies with some baked chicken for dinner.
I've thought of going gluten free. Will this video help me?
The Diet for Human Beings and Paleo are grain free, so it’s “beyond gluten-free.” Avoid processed gluten-free foods such as GF cookies and tortillas. They’re high in carbs and usually contain Omega-6 vegetable oils and food additives
I’m scared of fats because of my high cholesterol and triglycerides . Isn't fat bad?
We’ve been taught that saturated animal fats and coconut oil are bad. But it’s the commercial vegetable oils that are dangerous. We ate coconuts, animals and animal fat throughout history, but never canola, soy or peanut oil. I’ll explain which fats to eat and which to avoid, and why.
I have a lot of pain as well as bowel problems. Will this help?
The Diet for Human Beings is an anti-inflammatory diet, and highly digestible. Most people have less pain and reduced bloating and gas. Bowels improve, whether you currently have loose stools or constipation. There may be other work to do to heal your intestines, but this is the perfect place to start.
Will my diabetes or high triglycerides improve?
Many clients show a dramatic decrease in triglycerides in a very short time and have had their medications reduced or eliminated. Diabetes and triglycerides are related to high carbohydrate eating and Insulin surges. The Diet for Human Beings will change that and allow more protein and fats to stop sugar cravings and hunger. Fix the problem rather than medicate the symptom!
How is this different from Paleo that others teach? What IS The Diet for Human Beings?
There are many versions of “Paleo.” Some allow “healthy sugars” with lots of sweet potatoes and fruit. Some versions are very high fat. The Diet for Human Beings is more balanced. Carbohydrates should come from vegetables and smaller amounts of tubers or starchy squash and fruit. Some versions of Paleo suggest 75% of your calories as fat but that’s not balanced. The Diet for Human Beings is the way humans are built to eat, what we evolved eating, therefore, the foods we require most.
Who is Beverly and why did she film this?
Beverly is a Certified Clinical Nutritionist with a lifetime of health issues. She has been in practice 30 years helping herself and clients with many types of concerns, using Food First, lifestyle changes, and supplements. The DVD was originally designed to give to clients and those who cannot see Beverly in person.
How long is the video and what's the best way to watch?
The video is 70 minutes with 12 chapters, divided every few minutes with slides. Pause on every slide to stop, read and think. Ask yourself, “Did I understand everything just said?” If not, repeat that section, several times if needed. Watch it over several days, not all at once. You can download the video file to watch on your computer, you can use the online streaming option to watch directly on your phone or on your web browser, or you can get the DVD shipped to your home and watch in your living room.
Are there reviews?
Yes, see the current video page for reviews from Grass Fed Girl, the Weston Price Foundation and several viewers. There also are reviews on Amazon.
