To get back on topic, this article covers transitioning to a paleo type diet very well. It should be required reading by all. http://www.straighttothebar.com/2009/05 ... _diet.html

This is another interesting related article: http://www.drbriffa.com/blog/2009/05/01 ... a-calorie/

Very interesting reading, Stu.


On the topic of when a calorie is not a calorie, I firmly believe that a chocolate-calorie is definitely not a calorie. It's just a very small piece of deliciousness. :green:

some interesting links again there stuward, the second one can't really help me though, my girlfriend has a nut allergy.

Stuward do you have any information on how different foods affect stress levels?

A quick google search of Food & Stress will give you all kinds of links. A natural diet, rich in vitamin Bs, Omega 3, MUFAs, fibre and anti-oxidants should help relieve stress. Foods high in sugar, Omega 6, refined grains, and MSG, and processed foods in general, will increase stress. Following a paleo type diet will naturally lead you towards the stress relieving foods and away from the stress creating foods.

I would think that a good starting point for any food knowledge is http://wholehealthsource.blogspot.com/.

Basically Wheat, Sugar, and Refined Oils are bad. Starches are not bad, but may be if you have insulin resistance aka glucose intolerance. If you have a belly you have insulin resistance.

You also want to either avoid other grains or sprout and ferment them.
Beans/legumes are OK, but are better when fermented.

Saturated Fat is good because it is the choice fuel for our body, but not the brain. Liver converts Saturated fats to brain fuel (ketonic bodies).

Other fats must be saturated before they can be used. Mono-saturates are fine, but polys should be less than 4% of your energy intake, with an equal omega6:omega3 ratio.

Supplement Vitamin D3/K2/magnesium/iodine.
