  1. Great, I was waiting for this!

  2. Dr. Carlson,

    I spoke with your receptionist yesterday and earlier today and she recommended that I write you here on your blog.

    My question was about feeding a 3 year old child a low carb paleo diet. My girlfriend and I follow a low carb paleo diet, not for weight loss purposes but rather for overall health and wellness. Our diet consists mainly of meat (chicken, beef, pork, turkey, fish), non-starchy vegetables (broccoli, cauliflower, carrots, cabbage and so forth), eggs, nuts (raw mixed nuts), cheese (usually aged cheddar), low sugar fruits (mostly berries), and the occasional dessert (dark chocolate, ice cream). Naturally, my girlfriend's child eats the same food that we do.

    Based on the research I have done this type of diet is ideal not only for adults but children as well. However, the child's biological grandmother is alleging that the diet we feed the child is a form of child abuse because it restricts, among other things, whole grains. She has stated an intention to make it an issue in family court and has already contacted CPS. Accordingly, I am feeling a pressing need to contact a low carb pediatric expert and get advice on the diet that we follow.

    I understand that without seeing the child in person you couldn't make any pronouncement about the child's health but I was hoping to get a statement on the safety of the diet for a child in general. Again, it isn't for weight loss purposes, but only overall health. It is our desire to instill healthy eating habits into the child while he is young and to ensure that he develops into a healthy adult who will avoid things like diabetes, obesity and other problems associated with the standard American diet in the long run.

    Thank you very much for your time sir.
