EVERY now and then a study comes along with such suspect conclusions, you’d think the researchers would be too embarrassed to put their names to it. Not so the Australian scientists behind a study that purports to show the Paleo diet is dangerous for diabetics. And that it  will make them – and you – fat.  Silly stuff!

Ingredients for a Paleo meal

Like all low-carb, high-fat eating regimens, Paleo is not so much a diet as a lifestyle. It’s one that has fans across the globe. They would have been surprised at Australian research apparently showing Paleo is dangerous and will make them fat.

That’s the conclusion Australian researchers draw  in a new study in Nutrition and Diabetes, journal. They warn that diabetics shouldn’t go on Paleo because it causes weight gain.
