I was wondering if anybody else was interested in diets on this site. Whilst researching the plethora of diets available it seemed to make sense to go back to see what modern man was eating before all the revolutions in agriculture and industry. From what I have read cereals did not form any part of the stoneage diet because they hadn’t been developed yet. However in today’s world many people on a diet of rice, which is a gluten free cereal, live long and healthy lives. The diets of Western people high in saturated fat, sugar and processed carbohydrates seem to have high rates of heart and other obese related conditions. The diet of stoneage man was high in vegetables, fruit and meat. About 65% of calorie intake was from meat, but no cereal grain. So my thoughts are if we were to return to the diets of our ancestors we would have to cut out all cereals, however how then do we explain the success of Eastern diets high in rice. Any opinions out there?
