Paleolithic Diet is the Best Bet for DiabetesPaleolithic Diet is the Best Bet for Diabetes Excerpt

A newly published study in Cardiovascular Diabetology compared the effects of a Paleolithic diet to the current guidelines for a diabetes diet, and looked at cardiovascular risk factors for type 2 diabetes patients. The participating three women and ten men, who had type 2 diabetes that was not treated with insulin, were instructed to follow each diet for three-months.

The Paleolithic diet used was lower in cereals and dairy products, and higher in fruits, vegetables, meat and eggs. It was also higher in unsaturated fatty acids, dietary cholesterol and several vitamins. It was lower in total energy, energy density, carbohydrate, dietary glycemic load (GL) and glycemic index (GI), saturated fatty acids and calcium.

  1. Sharon, You may not realize the Savings. The money you save on items ie high carb foods, you delete from your diet. Will allow you to purchase more healthy Choices.
    I am a diabetic I feel better with whole foods. High cards rob me of energy , like prepackage and prepared items. Shop around the store like the outer walls avoid the center shelf .
    Any small changes in your diet will benifit both of you.

  2. Undeniably imagine that which you said. Your favourite justification appeared to
    be at the internet the easiest thing to consider of.
    I say to you, I certainly get annoyed at the same time as people consider issues
    that they plainly do not recognize about. You controlled to hit the nail upon the highest and defined out the entire thing without having side-effects , other people can take a
    signal. Will likely be back to get more. Thanks
