Fruits and Vegetables
If you love fruit and are convinced it is making you fat, don’t worry. It won’t make you fat on this diet, even in unlimited amounts. In fact, it’s not easy to get 50% of your daily calories from fruits and vegetables because of the high bulk and low caloric density of fruits and salad vegetables.
Nuts are rich in calories. If you are trying to lose weight, you should eat only about 4 ounces of them a day. Also, except for walnuts, almost all nuts have high levels of omega 6 fats, and if eaten excessively, they can unbalance the ratio of omega 6 to omega 3 fats in your diet.
For ideal health, then, you should eat fruits and vegetables with every meal, along with moderate amounts of nuts, avocados, seeds, and healthful oils (flaxseed, canola, olive oil, and mustard seed). However, just because it’s a vegetable doesn’t mean it’s good – or that it’s on the list below. High carbohydrate, starchy tubers – potatoes, sweet potatoes and yams – are restricted on the Paleo Diet. Also, dried fruit should be eaten only in small amounts because it, too, can produce a high glycemic load (causing a rapid increase in the blood glucose level), particularly when you eat too much of it. When you’re hungry or in doubt, start with a high protein, low fat food. Remember, lean protein is the most effective nutrient in reducing your appetite and boosting your metabolism to help you burn stored fat.
