  • Paleo diet finally studied for Diabetes benefit

    This is a very small cohort study so it needs duplicated with larger numbers but the results are in line with a few anecdotal cases in my practice.

    Paleo vs. American Diabetes Association dietary plan

    "Over a 3-month study period, a Paleolithic diet improved glycemic control and several cardiovascular risk factors compared to a Diabetes diet in patients with type 2 diabetes."

    If any of you want to consider trying Paleo, the first book I recommend is Practical Paleo. The recipes alone are worth the price.

    It really should be called something other than the "Paleo diet" since it's far from actual Paleolithic diet.

    That said, my doctor said that any comprehensive diet that mandates a high level of vegetables and allows meat proteins is excellent.

    I'd be interested to see how this diet compares to the South Beach diet in studies with diabetics.

      I think it would be better than south beach secondary to being a lower glycemic index overall

        Any diet that curtails sugar and starchy carbs is going to be 100% better than the ADA diet. My mother essentially died because the ADA modified their diet recommendations before her diabetes diagnosis. Her doctors told her that she could eat carbs so long as she spaced them out and avoided fats.

        Had her doctors terrified her with the 'no sugar/no starch' mantra that was accepted practice before, she would have lived longer since she was a pretty compliant type.

        All low carb diets improve insulin response, lower inflammation, and produce weight loss down to an optimal level if people stick to them 95% percent of the time. You just can't over eat meat and fat beyond a certain point if you are a normal person (not an athlete/body-builder type).

          What is the Paleo diet?
          I've found the best diet for me is to eat only when you're hungry. I lost 100lb that way. But I also ate 4-6 times a day. I could eat a little bit and wasn't hungry anymore.
          Why is it when ya think you're finally moving on,
          the past will come back and make ya start thinking
          about things all over again?
