‘Healthiest’ Paleo diet has ‘greatest benefits’
Healthiest Paleo diets, including one developed by Paleo enthusiasts in the United States, have “greatest health benefits,” according to a study published Wednesday.
The study looked at diets that were developed for a handful of individuals, with their diets varied in ingredients, but were made with the goal of maximizing the nutrients in their food and avoiding some of the most harmful ingredients.
“In addition to reducing the intake of these nutrients, these diets can promote optimal health and promote weight loss,” the researchers wrote.
“The most beneficial dietary pattern is one that maximizes the absorption of the nutrients that are in the foods that are being eaten.”
The researchers say this is especially important because there is a huge gap in the way the human body processes carbohydrates and nutrients, and this could have a big impact on the health of our population.
For example, it is estimated that about 30 percent of the human diet is made up of carbohydrates, and many people do not have the time to properly digest and use the food.
For the study, researchers analyzed the diets of 36 individuals who are known to be health conscious, and were looking for a way to maximize the nutrients contained in their foods.
Researchers measured the nutrients found in foods, and then tested for the levels of various types of carbohydrates in their bodies.
For this study, the researchers looked at five types of foods that were high in carbohydrates, which included bread, cereals, and pasta.
“We compared the nutrients and health effects of these diets to a number of common Paleo diets,” the authors wrote.
One of the Paleo diets included a diet high in vegetables, and included low-fat dairy, protein and fish.
The other diet included a high-carbohydrate, low-protein, low fat diet.
The participants ate a mix of a Paleo diet and a similar diet without any carbohydrates, with a small amount of meat or poultry.
The researchers used a simple “ketogenic” diet, which is essentially eating a low-carb diet, with high-fat and low-cholesterol diets.
The ketogenic diet was made up entirely of vegetables, fruits, and other foods, with the main protein and fat coming from eggs.
“For a low fat, ketogenic-based diet, we saw no difference in the nutritional status of the individuals, nor did any difference in body weight, or weight gain,” the study said.
The main goal of the study was to determine whether there was any benefit in the ketogenic and Paleo diets when it came to the body’s ability to process carbohydrates.
The research team found that the average person could take in about 10 percent less carbohydrate than someone who was eating a conventional diet.
They also found that while it was the keto diet that led to higher levels of antioxidants, it was also the Paleo diet that had the greatest benefits.
The authors say the findings may be due to the differences in the body, but that the diet itself may play a role in the health benefits.
“When you’re trying to figure out the optimal diet for your body, you’re looking at a lot of things, including your metabolism, hormones, and metabolism of the body,” Dr. Michael Eisenberg, the study’s lead author and professor of nutrition at Tufts University, told ABC News.
“What you really need to focus on is your diet.”
The study was published in the Journal of the American College of Nutrition and was funded by the National Institutes of Health.
