Primal dieting is becoming more and more popular among those looking to lose weight and improve serious health conditions, like osteoperosis. Read about the similarities and differences between primal and low carb diets.
As you know, diet fads are a mainstay of modern culture; it seems that a new one springs up every year, and for a time, dominates the diet industry. Low carb and gluten free diets have proven to have longevity — mainly because they work — but the newest “fad” diet is actually one that has been used before — by primitive man. The so-called “primal” diet is becoming increasing popular among people who are looking to lose weight and even fight terminal diseases, like cancer.
The primal diet was coined by nutritionalist Aajonus Vonderplanitz, and it focuses on eating high amounts of protein, little or no sugar, and raw foods that have not been cooked or otherwise processed through methods such as Pasteurization. Like the low carb diet, it has plenty of detractors: the medical industry continues to seek to destroy any revolutionary diets that seek to challenge the high carb, low calorie diet — even if a diet like the primal diet has been literally millions of years in the making!
