Top 10 Paleo and Low-Carb Doctors with Blogs

Sometimes people give me weird looks when I say something about health and nutrition that doesn’t fit with the generally approved conventional wisdom.

I’m often quick to point out that it’s not like I’m simply pulling this information out of my inferior end.

A lot of people that are way more knowledgeable than me believe in similar things, including some doctors.

Here they are, in no specific order:
