Re: Paleo and "blood type" diets

Because this is my topic and I am a moderator, I am going to delete CFB's and Brewer's sniping at each other.*

There. Scrubbed clean.

You have to be careful with the grains. Some of the more processed forms do have a high GL - like pasta. And pasta is so easy to overeat! Baked goodies made from flour and/or sugar - things like muffins, bagels, etc. You just have become aware of what can overload your blood sugar.

This cannot be true, can it, since animal husbandry is a relatively recent human accomlishment?

Re: Paleo and "blood type" diets

How is husbandry defined? Nomadic people who have captured a herd of cows and wander with them, drinking their milk mixed with blood (yech) doesn't sound like an episode of "All creatures, great and small", but I really don't know. Looking back on my post, I can't believe I used the phrase, "Dawn of Time" how cheesy!

Any anthropologist on the board who can tell us how long tribes in Africa have been doing this?

You are correct. Both agriculture and domisticated animals came much later than paleo man.

Re: Paleo and "blood type" diets

This thread is very interesting to me (aside from the blood flavored milk aspect!) since my mother and I often have this discussion. I've been a vegetarian for 14 years and even before that did not eat red meat, but my mother loves meat (almost every meal includes it) especially red meat. She's done the low carb thing, the eat for your blood type thing, etc. and constantly worries about me (I was going to put "badgers me" but she's my mom, she's entitled) getting enough protein. Her weight fluctuates, mine doesn't much.

I wish I did have some science to back it up, but I have only philosophy. I'm no PETA type, so I don't preach it, but I do think moving away from meat as the center of the diet is an evolutionary (and enlightened) thing.

I do agree with the glycemic load thing - too much sugar, any high fructose corn syrup, refined flours etc should really be avoided and white rice or potatoes should be an occasional thing rather than a staple. But I think that is a totally separate "argument" than not eating much meat and drinking milk.

I always buy whole-wheat pasta and brown rice.

Re: Paleo and "blood type" diets

Me too, now whenever I have to eat the white pasta or rice it seems mushy/bland.
