It’s not surprising news (at least to me).
Medical researchers released the results of a study on Wednesday that demonstrated just how beneficial a return to eating foods more traditional to the human diet can be.
They took a group of non-obese, sedentary(!) volunteers and fed them a paleolithic diet for 10 days.
Just 10 days!
And they got amazing and significant results.
Even short-term consumption of a paleolithic type diet improves BP and glucose tolerance, decreases insulin secretion, increases insulin sensitivity and improves lipid profiles without weight loss in healthy sedentary humans.
The paleolithic diet is a traditional foods diet, but adherants avoid grains (even if sprouted, soaked, or fermented) and dairy (unless it’s raw or cultured, and even then it’s only eaten in moderation).
