      DescriptionCounter to the stereotypical assumptions of kale-worshipping gym-junkies, many Australian Paleo dieters are sufferers of lingering, and at times chronic, disease.

      In her new book, Illness, Identity, and Taboo among Australian Paleo Dieters, Dr Catie Gressier, a University of Melbourne anthropologist, recounts stories of people struggling with chronic illness and obesity who have embraced the Paleo diet, and in turn, connected with each other.

      The Paleo diet has attracted criticism in the media and public health circles for its restrictive regime and association with controversial alternative health practices, yet its popularity continues unabated.
