Paleo Diet: Blood Sugar's Little Helper
Researchers across the Atlantic are lauding the improvements in blood sugar in subjects who follow the Paleo Diet. A Paleolithic diet consists mainly of lean meat, fish, fruits, vegetables, root vegetables, eggs and nuts. 
 
In the August issue of Nutritional Journal, researchers found marked improvement of glycemic control, several cardiovascular risk factors, and body mass reduction in patients with type 2 diabetes when given advice to follow a Paleolithic diet, as compared to a diabetes diet.
 
Researchers also found that the Paleolithic diet resulted in greater satiety for energy per meal, energy density per meal, and glycemic load per meal. In essence, the Paleo diet makes you feel full faster per calorie.
 
Additionally, researchers in a British Journal of Nutrition study found that compared with the control diets, the Paleo diet resulted in more body weight reduction, significantly decreased glycated Hb A1C (HbA1C) levels, a highly sensitive measure of blood sugar levels, and positive changes in systolic and diastolic blood pressure.
Study Suggests Milk Is Unfit for Humans.
Milk represents the nutrient system promoting neonatal growth of mammals, stimulating cell growth regulated by an action called mTORC1. 
 
According to a study in the July issue of Nutrition Journal, whereas human breast milk is the ideal food for infants allowing appropriate postnatal growth and species-specific metabolic programming, persistent high milk signaling during adolescence and adulthood by continued cow´s milk consumption may promote mTORC1-driven diseases of civilization like acne, obesity, type 2-diabetes, arterial hypertension, Alzheimer´s disease, cancer, especially prostate cancer.
 
Cow´s milk is not just a simple food for humans, but a tremendously powerful evolutionary program of the faster growing species Bos taurus (cow), which may permanently over-stimulate mTORC1 signaling in human milk consumers.

The researchers in this study state that it is of critical concern that persistently increased mTORC1 signaling be recognized as the fundamental driving force for the development of mTORC1-driven diseases of civilization. Therefore, future research in nutrition science should pay special attention to this function, which up to this point, has been woefully neglected.
