Paleo Diet allowed meat, poultry, fish, eggs, vegetables and fruits. Paleo cooking, baking and frying uses plant oils.  Majority of vegetable oils are unsaturated. Coconut a food ingredient used many Paleo recipes has saturated fats. Review: Unsaturated Fats, Trans Fats, Omega-3 fatty acids and Saturated Fats.

Unsaturated fats tend to be liquid at room temperature. There are two types of unsaturated fats monounsaturated and polyunsaturated. Unsaturated fats lower cholesterol and LDL cholesterol in the blood. Unsaturated fats: avocados, nuts, vegetable oil, flax seed oils and olive oil. Meat contains both saturated and unsaturated fats. Unsaturated fats lower risks of heart diseases.

Trans Fats or hydrogenated fats used to extend life of food products (cookies, cakes, pies, French fries, margarine and donuts).  Made by chemical processing, called partial hydrogenation. Trans fats are unsaturated fats but can raise cholesterol levels (bad cholesterol) and lower cholesterol levels (good cholesterol). Additionally, Trans fats raise triglyceride (blood sugar) levels in the blood. Paleo Diet avoids trans-fats.

Omega-3 fatty acids

Important for healthy body. The body does not produce Omega-3. Good sources for omega-3: cold water fish, walnuts and flax seed.  Omega-3 strengthens body’s immune system and reduces risks of heart diseases.

Saturated fats found in animal produces: meat, dairy and eggs. Saturated fats also found some plants: coconuts, palm and palm kernel oils.

Saturated fats tend to be solid at room temperate. Saturated fats considered bad fats rises cholesterol levels. High cholesterol levels can result in high blood pressure and heart diseases. Some diet circles, suggest saturated fats as versus to trans fats.

Oil can be used to grease casserole, baking dishes, fry fish or chicken, stir fry and sauté. Coconut milk used as ingredients in ice cream and shakes. High smoke point with a shelf life of approximately 2 years. Coconut meat, milk and oil used in many Paleo recipes.

paleo Is the Paleo Diet a trend diet or is it actually good for you?

Question by Kaia: Is the Paleo Diet a trend diet or is it actually good for you?

Best answer:

Answer by David
Paleo is a response to what new dietary research is discovering about the harmful effects of a low-fat, processed foods diet.

Some would say Paleo followers have the right idea, while others say the diet is to restrictive. Many in the later group, are going to a low carbohydrate, high fat diet, while staying away from many of the high GI carbohydrates found to be unhealthy by Paleo.

A trend? Did you know that the low-fat, processed foods diet recommended by the media, food, drug, doctors, and the diet industries is nothing more than a 45 years old dietary FAD.

Mankind did just fine eating high fat for 2 million years, until Sen. McGovern changed the game plan in 1968. The USDA, obedient to its masters in congress, did a flip-flop and issued new guideline. People are getting more unhealthy, while big business is making huge profits.
