Breaking news out of the European Journal of Clinical Nutrition. Published online at pubmed.gov comes this abstract :
Frassetto LA, Schloetter M, Mietus-Synder M, Morris RC Jr, Sebastian A.
1Department of Medicine, University of California San Francisco School of Medicine, San Francisco, CA, USA.
I’m going to repeat the conclusions in case they didn’t sink in:
“Even short-term consumption of a paleolithic type diet improves BP and glucose tolerance, decreases insulin secretion, increases insulin sensitivity and improves lipid profiles without weight loss in healthy sedentary humans.”
These are mighty impressive changes to occur in such a relatively short time. 10 days. This is even less than our 30-day Primal Health challenge .
These results were seen with no exercise (imagine what might have happened if they had added exercise) and with already nonobese, healthy individuals!
I hope the study speaks for itself and encourages those that have taken the 2009 Primal Health Challenge to stay the course. If you haven’t jumped on the band wagon just yet maybe this is the encouragement you need to go Primal .
Hit me up with a comment. Thanks, everyone!
