Paleolithic Diet—Effect on the Health Status and Performance of Athletes?

Positive effects of the PD on health and the lack of experiments among professional athletes require longer-term interventions to determine the effect of the Paleo diet on athletic performance.

Paleolithic and Mediterranean Diet Pattern Scores Are Inversely Associated with Biomarkers of Inflammation and Oxidative Balance in Adults.

It is suggested that diets that are more Paleolithic- or Mediterranean-like may be associated with lower levels of systemic inflammation and oxidative stress in humans.

Effects of a Paleolithic Diet on Cardiovascular Disease Risk Factors: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis of Randomized Controlled Trials.

There is some evidence supporting the beneficial effects of a Paleolithic Diet (PD) on cardiovascular disease risk factors. This diet advises consuming lean meat, fish, vegetables, fruits, and nuts

Influence of Paleolithic diet on anthropometric markers in chronic diseases: systematic review and meta-analysis

The Paleolithic diet may assist in controlling weight and waist circumference and in the management of chronic diseases, however, more randomized clinical studies with larger populations and duration are necessary to prove health benefits.

Effects of Paleolithic Diet on Glucose Control in Adults: A Systematic Review and Meta-analysis of Controlled Clinical Trials

A systematic review and meta-analysis on the randomized controlled clinical trials evaluating the effects of the Paleolithic diet on glycemic markers showed that although adherence to the PD led to reduction of fasting blood glucose concentrations, it was no statistically significant.

Fad Diets: Facts and Fiction

The current evidence related to the health impacts of some most popular diets, including Atkins diet, ketogenic diet, Paleolithic diet, Mediterranean diet, vegetarian diet, intermittent fasting and detox diet, are explored.

A Paleolithic diet lowers resistant starch intake but does not affect serum trimethylamine-N-oxide concentrations in healthy women

There were no significant changes in TMAO concentrations, increased meat consumption and reduced RS intake warrant further research to examine the markers of gastrointestinal health of Paleolithic diet followers and to update Australian food databases to include additional fibre components.

Single-Arm 8-Week Ad Libitum Self-Prepared Paleo Diet Reduces Cardiometabolic Disease Risk Factors in Overweight Adults

An 8-week self-administered paleo dietary intervention was effective in improving cardiometabolic disease risk factors in a healthy, physically inactive overweight adult population.

Die Paläoernährung und ihr Stellenwert für die Prävention und Behandlung chronischer Krankheiten

Zusammenfassung Hintergrund: Der derzeit beobachtete Anstieg chronischer nicht übertragbarer Krankheiten wird mithilfe vieler existierender Modelle versuchsweise erklärt. Innerhalb der evolutionären



Beneficial effects of a Paleolithic diet on cardiovascular risk factors in type 2 diabetes: a randomized cross-over pilot study

Over a 3-month study period, a Paleolithic diet improved glycemic control and several cardiovascular risk factors compared to a Diabetes diet in patients with type 2 diabetes.

Effects of a short-term intervention with a paleolithic diet in healthy volunteers

This short-term intervention showed some favourable effects by the paleolithic diet, but further studies, including control group, are needed.

Components of a Cardioprotective Diet: New Insights

The need to prioritize selected foods and overall dietary patterns rather than only individual nutrients, the relevance of carbohydrate and fat quality as well as quantity, the effects and policy implications of sodium consumption, the importance of energy balance, and the role of dietary supplements represent several key findings of interest.

The Role of Dairy Foods and Dietary Calcium in Weight Management

A review of some of the scientific evidence that has examined the effect of dairy foods and dietary calcium on weight management and research from animal and in vitro studies provide possible mechanisms of action is provided.

Effects of aerobic training on serum omentin-1 and cardiometabolic risk factors in overweight and obese men

Aerobic training resulted in an improvement in cardiometabolic risk factors in obese participants, and this improvement was accompanied by increased omentin-1 concentrations.

A Palaeolithic diet improves glucose tolerance more than a Mediterranean-like diet in individuals with ischaemic heart disease

A Palaeolithic diet may improve glucose tolerance independently of decreased waist circumference and the strong association between change in AUC Insulin0–120 and change in waist circumference did not remain after multivariate analysis.

Dairy and Bone Health

Given modern food sources, it is difficult to devise a diet that is “bone healthy” without including three servings of dairy per day, not just because of dairy calcium, but dairy protein and potassium as well.

A Paleolithic diet confers higher insulin sensitivity, lower C-reactive protein and lower blood pressure than a cereal-based diet in domestic pigs

This study in domestic pigs suggests that a Paleolithic diet conferred higher insulin sensitivity, lower C-reactive protein and lower blood pressure when compared to a cereal based diet.

Effects of aerobic and strength-based training on metabolic health indicators in older adults

The training programs produced significant benefits on metabolic health indicators of sedentary older women and men.

Plausible mechanisms for the protectiveness of whole grains.

Advice to consume additional whole grains is justified and further study is needed regarding the mechanisms behind this protection so that the most potent protective components of whole grains will be maintained when developing whole grains into acceptable food products for the public.
