MORE IDEAS FROM THE ARTICLE

Humans evolved on a diet very different from today's eating habits. To be healthier, leaner, stronger and fitter, we must re-think our diet and remove some of the food groups we consider basic.

Except

Paleo fans tend to overlook the fact that hunter-gatherers were not models of pristine health. Palaeolithic humans suffered from parasites, infectious diseases, and even atherosclerosis (hardening of the arteries).

What to avoid
  • Grains, although research suggests eating whole grains improve our health and appear to be neutral when it comes to inflammation.
  • Heavily processed oils, such as canola and soybean oil.
  • Legumes, although research suggests the benefits of legumes outweigh their anti-nutrient content. Cooking eliminates most anti-nutrient effects. Some anti-nutrients may even be good.
  • Dairy.
  • The evolutionary arguments don't hold up.
  • Evidence for excluding dairy, legumes, and grains isn't strong (yet).
  • A one-size-fits-all "best diet" approach doesn't work.

The paleo diet and research

Researchers found that the paleo diet led to more short-term improvements in some risk factors for chronic disease.

There is not enough evidence to make any strong claims, especially its longterm effects.

Good Carbs, Bad Carbs

Highly processed grains and added sugar are bad because they’ve been robbed of nutrients, they raise insulin levels, and they’re often high in added fats. But most plant foods are mostly carbohydrates: vegetables, fruits, whole grains, beans, lentils, nuts, and seeds, which are quite healthy. 

In conclusion: Carbs are not evil; junk food is evil.
