I just listened to a presentation on a study on obese rats, some of which were fed anthocyanins (an antioxidant) from cherrys. Those fed the supplemement returned to healthy weight, the others did not.

It points to the link between obesity and inflammation, which I think is part of how primal living may improve health (both by reducing inflammatory foods and behaviours and by increasing consumption of antioxidant rich foods).

I was wondering if any one else knew of similar studies or had any other thoughts? Especially since sometimes we can get the idea that primal diets help obesity purely by keeping insulin down and increasing satiety; clearly there is more going on!
