I ran across a 1995 well-researched online article about Ray Audette, author of NeanderThin and one of the modern paleo movement pioneers. It’s in Dallas Observer News: http://www.dallasobserver.com/1995-07-06/news/neander-guy/
Audette apparently self-published his book in 1995. (Publishing by a “vanity press” is probably more accurate for the mid-90s.) The 2000 edition of the book from St. Martin’s Paperbacks has a foreword by Dr. Michael Eades, who is also quoted liberally in the aforementioned article.
Mr. Audette credited his diet for curing both his diabetes and rheumatoid arthritis. I wonder how he’s doing these days.
1995 was only17 years ago. It seems like ancient history to me.
I tried to do an interview with Ray Audette a while ago. He did it, but it was a bit weird, not what I had expected.
Chris, thanks for the link. I read the interview with great interest. I’m guessing Ray must be around 60 now.
Yes I’m 60 now and have been following a Paleolithic diet for 27 years.
Ray, many thanks for stopping by here and leaving a comment.
was Ray a type 1 or a type 2? i really wish the names of the two were different. it gets confusing.
Mekaylah, must have been type 2 since type 1 is not curable or treatable without insulin.
Yes I had Type II.
Dr Richard Bernstein, author of “Dr. Bernstein’s Diabetes Solution” and developer of the electronic glucometer, comented upon reviewing “NeanderThin’ that a Paleolithic diet would reduce insulin need among Type I diabetics by about 80%.
