The Paleo Diet has surfaced in our constant quest to find magic bullets for how we eat in America. It basically advocates going back to the type of diet are far distant ancestors ate while they were hunting and gathering.
It’s always sounded a bit wacky to me and U.S> News seems to agree with me in its latest rankings of various diet plans.
“The Paleo diet also doesn’t show any significant evidence to prove its role to prevent heart disease and its favorable role in the weight-loss. This is just a few reasons why the Paleo diet ranked last on the best diets list,” one report notes.
If you’re worried about heart disease, as I am, cut the salt, fat and sugar and hope for the best. While future researchers may find something better, right now that’s the best advice we have.
