DAVE ROHDE | FOUNDER AND CEO
Dave is the founder and CEO of Paleo on the Go, LLC (www.paleoonthego.com). He has chosen to live a paleo lifestyle after experiencing many years of suffering severe food reactions, chest pain, brain fog, stomach pain, chronic fatigue, and other various ailments. He pursued natural and conventional medicine treatments alike, and spent in the tens of thousands of dollars with little improvement. Learning about eating real food through a conversation with his Crossfit coach was the answer he was looking for. Dave quickly dove into as much reading as he could and realized that this “very different way” of eating made a lot of sense. Jumping right in with pretty strict compliance yielded pretty immediate results.
Fast forward to 2016; Dave is continuing to see improvements but is very much a work in progress. Although many of his symptoms have subsided; he is transitioning to the autoimmune paleo protocol to improve even further.
In February of 2012 Dave started Paleo on the Go in hopes of reaching out to as many people as possible who may be unnecessarily suffering like he had for so many years; to help as many people as possible improve their health and weight; and to provide the best tasting, healthiest, most convenient food possible.
Dave looks forward to doing more in the Paleo community along, supporting sustainable farming practices. and continuing to learn a lot more as his body and mind keep improving on the road to thriving health.
