Who’s Ray Audette?

Ray Audette hunted with hawks

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.

  1. 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.


  2. Yes I’m 60 now and have been following a Paleolithic diet for 27 years.

  3. was Ray a type 1 or a type 2? i really wish the names of the two were different. it gets confusing.

  4. 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%.
