Flashback Friday: Paleo Diets May Negate Benefits of Exercise

The deleterious effects of a Paleolithic diet appear to undermine the positive effects of a Crossfit-based high-intensity circuit training exercise program.

I touched on paleo diets before in Paleolithic Lessons (https://nutritionfacts.org/video/paleolithic-lessons/), and I featured a guest blog on the subject: Will The Real Paleo Diet Please Stand Up? (https://nutritionfacts.org/2014/09/23/will-the-real-paleo-diet-please-stand-up/)

I wrote a book on low carb diets (now available free full-text online: http://atkinsfacts.org/) and touched on it in Atkins Diet: Trouble Keeping It Up (https://nutritionfacts.org/video/atkins-diet-trouble-keeping-it-up/) and Low Carb Diets and Coronary Blood Flow (https://nutritionfacts.org/video/low-carb-diets-and-coronary-blood-flow/).

And just two months ago, I published a bunch of videos on the low-carb keto diet: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL5TLzNi5fYd8H9nNYTHuxVBTCNP0hZDu3

And if you’re thinking, yeah, but what about the size of the cholesterol, small and dense or large and fluffy? Please see my video Does Cholesterol Size Matter? (https://nutritionfacts.org/video/does-cholesterol-size-matter/)
