It’s what you eat—and not how much—if you want to lose weight and reduce your diabetes risk image

It’s what you eat—and not how much—that will help you lose weight, and reduce your risk for diabetes and heart disease. To achieve all of this, the best diet to follow is the Paleolithic, which eliminates dairy, cereals, added salt and refined fats and sugars, say researchers.

With a Paleo diet, you can eat as much as want, and you’ll still lose weight and improve your fatty acid and insulin profile, researchers from Umea University in Sweden have discovered.

It’s been tested against a ‘prudent’ diet, which had less fat but more carbohydrates, and although both diets achieved a similar weight loss, only those on the Paleo diet also saw a change in their insulin insensitivity, a precursor of diabetes and heart disease.

The researchers tested the two approaches on a group of 70 obese, post-menopausal women, who followed the diets for 24 months. Both groups succeeded in achieving ‘significant’ loss in weight and body fat, and although they also reduced their fatty acid intake, only those on the Paleo diet reduced the acids that are linked to insulin resistance.

The Paleo diet is based on lean meats, fish, eggs, vegetables, fruits, nuts and berries, along with rapeseed and olive oils and avocado for added fats, and excludes dairy, all grains and cereals, added salt and refined fats and sugars.
