Here’s a new study which shows that even short term consumption of the Paleolithic type diet confers many health benefits.
Researchers at the University of California San Francisco School of Medicine performed a study in which nine non-obese sedentary, healthy individuals consumed their usual diet for three days, then ate foods with more potassium and fiber for seven days, and then consumed a Paleolithic type diet which included lean meat, fruits, vegetables and nuts, and excluded grains, dairy and legumes, for 10 days.
The researchers found that when compared to the baseline diet, the participants showed significant reductions in blood pressure, plasma insulin, total cholesterol, low-density lipoproteins (LDL) and triglycerides from the Paleolithic diet.
And that was after just ten days. Imagine how healthy you would be if you ate a Paleolithic type diet long term.
