Quoting * Sara *:" Is it safe? Good for you?"
Well, with every eating plan there is debate on if it's good.
I think so, if it's done right of course. I don't think grains (even whole wheat) is that great for people. LOTS have intolerance's to it and I just don't think we were really designed to eat them. If you pick good lean meat (including chicken and fish of course), and fresh veggies, that's great! Also, I think dairy isn't that great for us. I mean, it's made for baby cows, not adult humans haha. It really pushes for good fats, like coconut oil, and using things like coconut milk and almond milk.
So of course some people will take the diet to mean you eat nothing but fatty hamburger patties, eggs, and smother it all in oil, so thus CAN be done poorly (like any diet). However, if done right, I think it's wonderful. It basically cuts out ALL processed food, all refined sugars, all that junk that we eat so often. I did it for a little over a month and we all felt wonderful.
It is hard to stick with though, because you have to make basically everything from scratch. Lots of the "go to" options like sandwiches can't be used (and rice), it's expensive, because most grains tend to be "filler" in cheap meals, like noodles, rice, things like that. Also if you stick with lean meats they cost a lot more, especially organic.
So there's controversy, as with anything, but I honestly think most people who do this right feel better, even if for no other reason then they are eating wonderful REAL food for every meal.
