The modern dietary regimen known as the Paleolithic diet (abbreviated paleo diet or paleodiet), also popularly referred to as the caveman diet, Stone Age diet and hunter-gatherer diet, is a nutritional plan based on the presumed ancient diet of wild plants and animals that various human species habitually consumed during the Paleolithic—a period of about 2.5 million years duration that ended around 10,000 years ago with the development of agriculture.

There are so many different “Diets” out there… well, we’ve all been confused by the many claims in the past .

An example of just one diet is the Caveman Diet.  The beauty of the diet grader, is that no matter what “diet” you choose to follow, Diet Grader can tell you how it stacks up against modern scientific research.  The next generation release of Diet Grader will not only tell you how it stacks up to current science, but will also tell you how you are doing based on the popular diet of your choice.

Nutritional Feedings Provide »

Written: November 23, 2009 By: In: Holistic

Nutritional feedings provide us with life-sustaining substances found in food, that work together to supply the body with energy to perform all of its physiological functions.  Without proper fuel the body is unable to work efficiently, nor effectively and disease has more potential to appear.

Diet is not necessarily a bad word, it is simply what you eat.

Ensure your nutritional feedings are balanced to provide your body the optimal fuel mixture to best enable you to perform whatever your “function” is.

Low-Fat Vs. Low-Carb Diets »

Written: November 10, 2009 By: In: Diet

(Health.com) — People who spend a full year on a strict low-carbohydrate diet can lose weight, but they might be happier — and lose just as many pounds — if they focus on reducing fat intake instead of carbohydrates, new research suggests.

Weight-loss strategies like Atkins and South Beach promote sharply cutting carb intake so that your body burns fat for energy. These diets are known as ketogenic plans because, in the absence of carbohydrates, the liver breaks down fat into fatty acids and particles known as ketone bodies.

Short-term studies have found that low-carb diets can have positive and negative effects on mental function and mood, but little is known about how the diet affects mood in the long run. Grant D. Brinkworth, of the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Association in Adelaide, Australia, and colleagues randomly assigned 106 obese and overweight people to either a low-fat or low-carbohydrate diet.

Food be Thy Medicine »

Written: October 6, 2009 By: In: Diet

Hippocrates, the ancient father of western medicine, famously said: “Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food.” Though modern physicians tend to rely less heavily on dietary practices to treat disease than doctors of the past, evidence is clear that for some diseases the right combination of nutrients can prove life-altering.

This was the opening paragraph to an article written by Natalie Digate Muth, M.D., M.P.H., R.D. in an ACE “Fitness Matters” journal.

While those who practice medicine, at least back to the time of Hippocrates understood the link between food consumption and health it seems to have been forgotten along the way.  Now more and more scientific studies are again proving the links between certain foods and the treatment of certain ailments.

There is continued research in many areas, but with the ongoing findings of the importance of balanced diet on optimal health, you need to utilize a tool such as the Diet Grader to evaluate and optimize your personal well-being.
