About the author:
Don Matesz, M.A., M.S.O.M., Dipl.Nutr. is a member of MENSA and holds Master's degrees in both philosophy and Oriental medicine, and a diploma in nutrition from the American Academy of Nutrition (now the Huntington College of Health Sciences). He co-authored one of the first popular paleo diet cookbooks The Garden of Eating. For several years he taught a History of Human Nutrition course to medical students at Southwest College of Naturopathic Medicine. He was a featured speaker at the first ever Ancestral Health Symposium at UCLA in 2011.

Over the course more than ten years eating a meat-based paleo diet and studying the evolution of human nutrition, Don had developed high cholesterol and other issues related to excess intake of meat, and concluded that the popular conception of paleo diet was scientifically unsound. He subsequently wrote a 300 page refutation of the claim that humans are adapted to meat-eating by natural selection: Powered By Plants: Natural Selection and Human Nutrition which demonstrates how natural selection adapted humanity to a whole foods plant-based diet. He and his wife Tracy are currently producing more educational materials to help others adopt a sustainable whole foods plant-based diet. To learn more visit
