Paleo Diet Fact or Fiction

Paleo Diet Fact or Fiction

paleo diet fact or fictionPaleo diet fact or fiction looks at some of the content available on the internet. It would appear that there are those who support the paleo way of life and also those who say it is just a diet that does not work.

I have watched a few videos on you tube and there is a definite division between the camps. I have seen a video that says paleo is all about eating mainly meat. The person in this video certainly does not understand Paleo. Another video went through medical facts extolling some of those foods that are not at all paleo. But I am sure if you look hard enough you will find many people who come to harm eating the same foods.

To me it does seem a great pity that the so called experts cannot give a true picture of what different diets do. I suppose it all depends on who will pay them the most.

I can understand government departments that extoll the goodness of wheat, barley etc. They have to do that because they are often subsidizing the farming industry. And of course newspapers that rely on these industries for their advertising revenue are not going to back anything that does not make them a good profit.

This means you are very unlikely to get a true picture from these sources as they cannot afford to go against those who pay them money. But isn’t everyone missing the main point here? There is no such thing as a one size fits all diet. A diet has to be individual to each person. It has to take in dietary requirements for that person and also their metabolic requirements.

My conclusion is it is no use listening to anyone when it comes to dietary products and needs. I would suggest that you try the diet to see if it fits in with your particular lifestyle. If it does and gives you the results you want to achieve then stick with it.

Where does that leave me with the paleo diet? I will carry on with it because I am feeling benefits from it. Yes! I did have to play with different things, (as a diabetic), to get something that suited me and my metabolic system.
