Try to eat at least five or six servings of vegetables per day, whether raw or cooked. Spinach, broccoli, kale, red or green peppers, asparagus and brussel sprouts are excellent, vitamin-packed choices. All vegetables are beneficial, but if you are interesting in losing weight, avoid eating starchy vegetables such as corn and potatoes. Avoid deep-frying or drenching vegetables in sauces because that adds fat, calories and sodium.
Fruit is nature’s dessert food. Most fruits are packed with vitamin C. Fruit can be baked, grilled or simply eaten raw. Some of the best fruits to grill or bake are apples or pears. Simply slice and grill for a delicious dessert. Bake cherries, pears or apples in the oven at low heat for a “no crust” pie.
The nut family offers plenty of choices containing antioxidants such as vitamin E and selenium. Nuts are also loaded with fiber and are nutritionally dense, which makes them a great healthy snack. Enjoy almonds, peanuts, hazelnuts, pecans, Brazil nuts or macadamia nuts. Nut butters are also delicious when paired with fruit and vegetables.

Are listed. Once again, meat only wasn't decribed...
Carbohydrates didn't "creep" they were the result of learning how to cultivate short supply wild crops into high output farmed crops.
Its about impacting supply, not use. They ate carbs as a diet staple. Farming was just a supply issue. If they didn't want to eat it, why waste the time trying to figure out how to increase its supply?
Alzheimer's and Diet: Good for Heart May Be Good2011-01-15 02:35:19 by WheresTheLove
Looking at more than 2,000 dementia-free adults ages 65 and older, researchers revealed that persons who consumed a Mediterranean-type diet regularly were 38 percent less likely to develop Alzheimer's disease over the next four years, according to Dr. Nikolaos Scarmeas of Columbia University in New York and colleagues.
The findings were published online in the journal Archives of Neurology.
The dietary pattern is characterized by eating more salad dressing, nuts, tomatoes, fish, poultry, cruciferous vegetables, fruits, and dark and green leafy vegetables and lesser quantities of red meat, organ meat, butter, and high-fat dairy products

Circles, but I find what I have learned through the eat right for your type to hold true. Here is a brief over view:
Blood Type O should basically stick to a high protein diet (including red meat), low carbs, fruits and vegetables. Cut out wheat and most other grains, corn, and avoid dairy products and most nuts. Must engage in vigorous physical exercise.
Blood Type A must ideally be vegetarian - high carbohydrate, low fat. Basically, stick to fruits and vegetables. This blood type is supposed to have relatively thicker blood, and a sensitive immune system. Must not consume dairy products, animal fat and meat
Question about BF and diet...2007-01-20 23:18:48 by russia
My DS is 13 months but 90% of his nutrition still comes from breast milk. I would like to follow up on that new year resolution of mine, namely: to get in shape!!! I decided to go ahead and just eat raw fruits and vegetables (maybe some nuts). Do you think this is okey to do while breast feeding? And even without breastfeeding do you think is this kind of diet okey for my body? THANKS
