Low Carbohydrate

Paleo Diet prevents Cancer?

Now we’ve one more reason to follow the Paleo diet - it may prevent cancer. In a study done by scientists at Canada’s British Columbia Cancer Research Centre, it was found that mice fed on a high-protein, low-carbohydrate diet had slower tumour cell growth than those fed a typical Western diet high in carbohydrates. While [...]

The Paleo Diet and High Cholesterol (it’s not what you think)

I love it when I find articles like this. Articles that totally go in the face of mainstream medicine and demonstrate how misled we have been. Dr Al Sears, developer of the PACE® interval training system is proud that his cholesterol numbers are high because he knows it will mean a long and healthy life. [...]

Diabetes and the Paleo Diet… again

When I read articles such as this, “Diabetes: Cases double in 30 years - and the outlook is bleak” from the Independent, I get sad and a bit mad. No one has to get diabetes. NO ONE. The cure is as simple as changing your diet. And perhaps the optimal diet is the Paleo diet. [...]

The Paleo diet solution for food addiction

Triathletes aren’t the only ones with food addictions. I am sure this is something that most of us have gone through, eating more than our bodies need to for fuel. But what causes this? Why do we eat those extra 5 cookies or down that extra Coke or two? The reason is in what these [...]

Low-Carb, High-Protein Diet Slows Cancer Growth In Mice, Study Finds

So it sounds like eating a paleo diet would also be good for fighting cancer. I am willing to bet that a paleo diet would work even better since it would consist of organic foods, pastured animal products and more fat. It has been shown that carbohydrates feed cancer tumors so leaving out carbs for [...]

Small, frequent meals key to tackling acidity - not

Boy, I remember the heartburn days, or years actually.  I followed all of the advice on heartburn - avoid coffee, chocolate, tomatoes, spicy foods. Sleep elevated, don’t wear tight clothing, etc. And taking the drugs, Zantac, Tagamet which didn’t help. Taking Rolaids and Tums. Nothing really worked in the end. And I suspect it doesn’t [...]

High-Fat Diets Won’t Harden Arteries….

And a whole lot more…. I love how they qualify their statements “Low-carbohydrate diets that require patients to fill up on fats won’t lead to harder arteries, researchers say — at least not in the short-term.” For the long term too. But what constitutes a high fat diet? To me a high fat diet is [...]

Consumer Reports Admits The Scientific Evidence Says ‘It’s OK To …

Finally, the MSM is getting the message. We DON’T NEED carbs to live a healthy life. We’ve seen it in the Los Angeles Times, New York Times, The Huffington Post, UK Daily Mail, and People, for example, and the trend is a positive one for the high-fat, low-carb cause. … While they still rank plenty [...]

Paleo Sounds Great, But Why No Grains?

Love this article by Robb Wolf. He answers the question of why grains are not part of the paleo diet. So many people believe that grains are an essential part of a healthy diet when in fact they cause more problems than is realized. Robb’s piece does a great job of explaining why. Today’s guest [...]

Low-carb diet used to treat Alzheimer’s

This is potentially good news. Dr. Richard Isaacson, aᅠneurologist at the University of Miami, is putting his Alzheimer’s patients on a low carb diet. I am willing to bet that a paleo diet would be even more effective. If he is allowing toxic foods like Splenda and Nutrasweet, then he may as well not bother. [...]
