Paleo author Peggy Emch talks about primal eating, nakedness and getting pregnant

Do paleo eaters look good naked? First time author Peggy Emch thinks so. Creator of the paleo nutrition and lifestyle blog, The Primal Parent, Emch released Primal Moms Look Good Naked: A Mother's Guide to Achieving Beauty through Excellent Health last week.

Challenging the belief that pregnant women and new mothers are unattractive and undesirable, Emch has compiled a 256-page guide for getting ride of cellulite, varicose veins, stretch marks and belly flab with a paleo diet (also known as the caveman diet), which consists primarily of fish, grass-fed meats, nuts and fruit.

Emch recently sat down with Westword to share here inspiration for the book, how paleo worked for her and some challenges of being a primal parent. Already receiving rave reviews and a best seller on Amazon, Emch may just be onto something.
