I was reading in the paper about the latest in diets and that there are restaurants opening up based on The Paleo diet. So what is this is apparantly it goes back to the dinosaur period and is suppose to bbe the healthiest way you can eat because it is the a nutritional approach that works with your genetics to help you stay lean, strong and energetic. Research has indicated that it is our modern diet of refined foods, sugars, trans fats that are at the root of degenerative diseases such as obesity, canced, diabetes, hear disease, Parkinson's Disease, Alzheimer's, depression and infertility. Basically from what I have read on line it is about eating meals like below and omitting grain from the diet. 4-8 oz of lean protein such as chicken, lean beef, turkey, pork loin or seafood.Then add several servings of multicolored vegetables, either raw, steamed or lightly cooked. Finally, round out the meal with good fats from Avocado, olive oil or a handful of un-salted nuts such as almonds, pecans, macadamias or walnuts. I do not believe we should eliminate grain from our diet we all need fibre that is for sure. I for one will be giving this diet a miss. Happy Eating. Let me know what you think.
