Subject: RE: What is the healthiest diet you could possibly eat? (as a general consensus)
Why whole grains? Whole grains have phylates, which prevent the absorption of the tiny bit more minerals that whole grains are alleged to have. And why grains at all? Agriculture is a very recent development and has supported large populations at the cost of degraded health of any one person.
Why dairy? This is only a "food group" because of lobbying. Humans ate no dairy for most of our evolutionary history (or wheat) and we don't do well with gluten and casein.
Why little red meat? So long as it is grass fed, it has a prefectly fine fat profile. Corn fed meat is not meat as it is supposed to be.
Limit your added/refined sugar (that is, sucrose or HFCS - any sugar with high fructose content) intake to under 10g a day (treat it like alcohol - a treat rather than a daily thing) and you will be 2/3 of the way to a good diet.
I'm not interested in arguing about this; he asked what the general consensus is and I posted it. What you're talking about is not the general consensus anywhere but among Paleo diet guys.Hit the submit button below if you want us to review the post.
