Thanks for the post.
The "paleo diet", short for paleolithis diet, advocates against:
Grains- including bread, pasta, noodles
Beans- including string beans, kidney beans, lentils, peanuts, snow-peas and peas
Meat, chicken and fish
Vegetables (especially root vegetables, but definitely not including potatoes or sweet potatoes)
Nuts, eg. walnuts, brazil nuts, macadamia, almond.
Berries- strawberries, blueberries, raspberries etc.
Root vegetables- carrots, turnips, parsnips, rutabagas, Swedes
Organ meats- liver and kidneys (I accept that many people find these unpalatable and won
The paleo diet is quite healthy (far better than a typical American diet) but it sure didn't make ancient people live longer. The average lifespan was 25 which shows that we STILL need conventional medicine to save our lives.
Currently, there's good evidence that grains reduce risks of certain cancers but paleo diet advocates believe it's the opposite.
