Protein intake is more stable than carbohydrate or fat intake across various US demographic groups and international populations

TLDR
Protein intake of the US population and multiple international populations, regardless of demographic and lifestyle factors, was consistently ∼16% of total energy, suggesting biological control mechanism(s) tightly regulate protein intake and, consequently, influence intake of other macronutrients and food constituents.

Combating insulin resistance with the paleo diet.

TLDR
The potential benefits of replacing low-calorie diets with the paleo diet are explored and NPs are positioned to help inform patients, particularly those with prediabetes and T2DM, about healthy lifestyle choices and provide them with resources to achieve weight loss success.

Motivational dynamics : the interaction of motivational and affective systems on implicit processing of food stimuli

The studies reported here were intended to examine how affective and motivational factors influence attentional processing of goal objects, such as food, by exploiting modified versions of an

The Fat from Frozen Mammals Reveals Sources of Essential Fatty Acids Suitable for Palaeolithic and Neolithic Humans

TLDR
The fat of single-stomached mammals often consumed by Palaeolithic/Neolithic hunters contained suitable amounts of n-3 and n-6 fatty acids, possibly in quantities sufficient to meet the today's recommended daily intake for good health.

FOCUS: Gough's Cave and Sun Hole Cave Human Stable Isotope Values Indicate a High Animal Protein Diet in the British Upper Palaeolithic

We undertook stable isotope analysis of Upper Palaeolithic humans and fauna from the sites of Gough's Cave and Sun Hole Cave, Somerset, U.K., for palaeodietary reconstruction. We were testing the

The Diet of Canadian Indians and Eskimos

TLDR
Palm weevils, the larvas of Rhynchophorus phoenicis, which inhabit the boles of the red-oil palm, are eaten after roasting over an open fire, and snakes of various species and the monitor lizard are also eaten by Isoko farmers when the opportunity arises.

Dietary lean red meat and human evolution

TLDR
Lean meat is a healthy and beneficial component of any well-balanced diet as long as it is fat trimmed and consumed as part of a varied diet.

Glycemic index, glycemic load, and chronic disease risk--a meta-analysis of observational studies.

TLDR
Low-GI and/or low-GL diets are independently associated with a reduced risk of certain chronic diseases and the hypothesis that higher postprandial glycemia is a universal mechanism for disease progression is supported.

Physical activity, energy expenditure and fitness: an evolutionary perspective.

TLDR
Examination of how evolution has determined the potential for contemporary human performance is examined, and the experience of recently-studied hunter-gatherers is advanced as the best available indicator of the physical activity patterns for which the authors' genetically determined biology was originally selected.
