Fruits meat vegetables diet
A diet consisting of lean protein, fresh fruits and vegetables mimics the diets of our ancient ancestors and, proponents believe, best suits our genetics and digestion. Such a diet, embodied in the Paleo Diet Plan, can be very healthy, but challenging to stick to because it is so restrictive. The high protein content keeps you sated and you acquire tons of fiber and nutrients through fresh raw produce. The diet puts no limits on the amounts of fruit, vegetables and lean meat you may eat--but it does forbid the intake of any food that does not fall into those categories.

Eat unlimited amounts of lean cuts of meat. Focus on seafood, skinless white meat poultry, pork tenderloin, flank steak, bison and wild game. Trim away all visible fat.
Eat liberal amounts of fresh fruits and vegetables. Do not limit your intake of these items. Eat much of your produce raw to maximize nutritional value and fiber. Go for high-volume, low-calorie vegetables like lettuce, broccoli, cabbage and cauliflower.
Substitute healthy oils for butter, margarine and shortening. Use olive oil, flaxseed, nut oils and avocado oil to help decrease your intake of saturated fat. Make these natural, plant-based oils the basis of all fats in your diet.
Avoid foods that would not have been available to people in hunting and gathering times--this includes peanut butter, pasta or any other products containing flour. Forgo all grains, legumes (beans, peas and soy), dairy, refined sugar, starchy vegetables and coffee because these were not available to humans prior to the introduction of agriculture.
Stay away from yeast and salt. Do not eat baked goods, pickled foods, vinegar or food products that have gone through fermentation because these foods are not as quality of a source of fiber and B Vitamins as are fruits and vegetables. Season food with powdered garlic or onion, citrus juices, pepper, cayenne and chili powder or other natural spices which enhance health and do not cause bloating as does salt.

They didn't eat fruits and vegetables2013-05-12 19:00:55 by AZ_Dude
When you live somewhere that is snow and ice 8-10 months a year, there aren't a lot of fruit and veggies laying around.
They ate fat and meat.
I'm not saying that fruit and veggies are bad, or should be avoided, I'm just saying that it is totally possible to live a long healthy life WITHOUT eating them.
Your statement "It is so dangerous to the body to go on a low carb diet." is simply BS.
It has been proven numerous times that humans can survive without carbs and without any negative side effects as long as they get enough vitamins and minerals.
The shift from the ape diet of fruits and2011-06-29 13:55:01 by TheKhan
Vegetables, to the meat, fish and egg diet our early hominid ancestors, resulted in extreme brain grow that made us evolve in to the Paleolithic or modern man, leaving are distant ape relatives in the intellectual dust.
The high carbohydrate diet was intellectually regressive as carbohydrates are neuro-toxins. Not strange that in the middle east where three of the most disgusting ignorant superstitions; judeaism, christianity and islam arose in response to an area that was an early adopter of a the neuro-toxic high carbohydrate diet. Eating carbohydrates leading to religious insanity.
Keep meat vegetable and starch separate2012-11-06 15:51:47 by dave
Then, don't use recipes for your vegetable or meat portion of the meal that contain much if any starch. That way the diabetic can eat a limited portion of the starch, while enjoying the rest of the meal.
Given that you are in SF, you can get good quality vegetables 12 months a year. Starting from good quality vegetables will allow you to get a better quality result with less effort.
For the starch/sugar portions, I would focus on whole fruits and lower glycemic index starch choices. i.e. a sweet potato, instead of white. Quinoa and barley would be good choices, as would black beans
Stopped eating meat2011-05-16 21:29:26 by growbayarea
I stopped eating meat April 3rd. I have been eating seafood, vegetables, fruits and grains. So, I am planning to start eating poultry again. Will I get sick if I integrate chicken into my diet? I was thinking fried chicken in about two weeks. What should I do to prepare myself. I just want a little, since I have been eating smaller amounts as well. I use a saucer to prepare my meals, and eat fruit and nuts for snacks.
