To begin with, what is the paleolithic diet ? Popularized in France in the early years 2000, the regime said, “paleo” is to eat as did our ancestors of the Paleolithic age (prehistoric period ranging from 2.5 million to 12 0000 years before J. C).
At this time, human society consisted primarily of hunter-gatherers who were completely unaware of farming techniques. The followers of this diet, which only allows the products natural and non-processed feed so meat, eggs, fish, fruits and vegetables, being persuaded that the diseases such as cancers, obesity and diabetes have emerged with agriculture.

A follow-up study over 2 years

According to a study conducted by Caroline Blomquist, a phd student in the Department of public health and clinical medicine Umeå University, Sweden, in overweight women after the menopause who follow a paleo diet are more likely to maintain weight loss over the long term. Well as to reduce their levels of risk factors for type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease.
To obtain these conclusions, the researcher has followed during two years a group of 70 postmenopausal women with a body mass index greater than 27, that is to say, being in a situation of overweight. In fact, postmenopausal women have a higher risk of obesity, in particular because of the reduction of estrogen production.
