  1. Meat based diets make you shed a lot of weight. However the whole saying that Paleolithic people did not eat starches is IMO full of bogosity. I have seen plenty of hunter-gatherer documentaries where people supplemented the captured meat with all sorts of things, including edible roots. Guess where the calories in roots most commonly come from…

  2. Thanks for the link, Rand!

    @Godzilla: You’re right… and I agree with you. That’s why, in the statement of principles …


    … I say: #16: “If tolerated well, eat some tubers like sweet potatoes. Some people seem tolerate modest quantities of white potatoes, but others don’t. Sweet potatoes are an excellent source of carbohydrates for athletes. Limit or avoid tubers if you’re trying to lose weight.”

    The carb intake of paleo-eaters varies hugely, depending on their individual tolerances. Personally, I eat sweet potatoes pretty regularly. A paleo diet might be low-carb, but it need not be.

  3. Before the arrival of agriculture, technology and civilization human beings took part in a diet now referred to as the Paleolithic Diet. This Stone Age diet, in short, consisted of mainly lean red meat and vegetables. 45 to 65% of energy needed by the body is derived in this type of diet my consuming animal meat in large quantites.

    Living off of the Paleolithic Diet till the early centuries, people had extremely low rates of cancer, obesity, arthritis, osteoporosis, diabetes and heart diseases before shifting to our modern diets. Thus, many scientists and nutritionists feel that Paleolithic diet is a very good tool for fighting against obesity, cancer and many other modern ailments.

    The foods included in this diet are generally lean red meat, eggs, fish, fruits, nuts and vegetables. Items like breads, pasta, milk, refined sugars were excluded from this diet. This diet used to vary region and culture wise in different countries.

    The specialty of this diet is it is rich in protein, fiber, minerals, iron, vitamins, mono unsaturated fat, omega3 fats, antioxidants and phyto-chemicals. On the other hand the diet contains lower quantity of saturated fats, salts, and enzyme inhibitors.

    Experts feel that the Paleolithic diet have many health benefits and since foods taken are mostly natural they have no side effects. Since milk and dairy products are excluded in this diet it is safe to have some calcium to protect from rickets, osteoporosis, etc.
