Can Paleo Save America?
This is a 25 minute video. If you have time this video is very informative.
If America is put on a low carb/Paleo diet we can reverse the weight epidemic and improve the health of Americans.
What does eating carbs do?
People who are naturally thin and exercise can get by with eating more carbohydrates without gaining weight. Even they will have problems with eating too many processed carbs. They will be able to eat lots of fruits and other non-processed carbs and maintain a healthy weight.
Eating processed carbs causes an spike in insulin. If you have a low level of insulin your body will stay thin.
Obese persons have high levels of insulin. Thin people have low levels of insulin.
Type 1 Diabetis, which is a insulin producing disorder, doesn't allow the sufferer to produce enough insulin. Children with Type 1 Diabetis died from starvation before the medical industry came up with an injectable insulin.
