In my opinion, a plant based diet that is high in antioxidants and fiber and low in saturated fats, while including omega-3 fats from fish or supplements, would be a good choice.

Try the Paleolithic Diet:  lean meat (skinless turkey and chicken, low-fat beef), fish, vegetables, fruits, and nuts.  High protein, low carb, low fat.

--
. concerning the Paleo diet,
beware lumping together legumes with grains;
Paleo experts love to point out how toxic soy is,
but black turtle beans are not nearly as toxic,
and they have equally high quality protein .
. beans are a great way to control the rate of
both glucose and protein;
and, according to Dr.Darmadi-Blackberry,
(Asia Pac J Clin Nutr. 2004;13(2):217-20)
Legumes are the most important dietary predictor of survival
in older people of various ethnicities.
. I get half my protein from red or black beans,
and half from LE whey and few eggs;
mixed with olive oil, and rosemary .
. along with plenty of greens, cruciferous veg, tomato sauce, boiled yam,
selenium, magnesium, seaweed, and LE fish oil,
I consider that diet consistent with a Zone diet
-- a less-toxic version of the Soy Zone .
. listen to paleo's discuss beans:
paleohacks.com
. here's the science of bean prep:
westonaprice.org
. I'm not too fussy about bean prep myself;
I bring the beans to a boil, and then let sit overnight;
toss the water and vitamix-puree with oil and rosemary herb;
pressure cook for 30min at 210F.

Ph.T.:  Yes, I agree with eating legumes--it's a major component of the Paleolithic diet.   And, yes, I avoid all soy, whether in food or supplements....

Check out the documentary Forks over Knives and you'll see several doc's recommend a plant-based diet. Dr Dean Ornish published a book on reversing heart disease (plant-based diet). Dr. John McDougall also has some writings on that (he's also in the video). There's also a theory that heart disease is a vitamin c deficiency. Exercise is important too. So i know you only asked about diet, but it's multifactorial - diet, exercise, supplements. Get a VAP cholesterol test and also check homocysteine and Cardio CRP. There are lots of dietary mods that can dramatically affect the various cardiovascular disease related blood tests. You can also look into chelation therapy, both EDTA and Plaquex. LEF also has an article on EECP. Attack this on all fronts. If you're a male, get your estrogen checked too.

Go Paleo: www.robbwolf.com

or

Go Primal: www.marksdailyapple.com

Do not cut out fat - focus on low carb vegetables, high orac fruits and antibiotic/hormone free meats.

Supplement with a good fish and coconut oils.

Bean brain infarct !   limit my beans, they hard fibers worsen bigger my constipations

no way!   those paleo people didnt know beans about beans, nor did they garden bean or did yoe see them garden much of  anything?

and again, No way, no low-fat diet for them.... animal fat provided them much their energy, esp when winterish.

back then, the animal ate more decently by grazing... not hyping up on their omega-6 by eating grains or olive oil in a feedlot (dont tell me that restaurants around here arnt also like feed lots) (all grains are mostly more full of omega-6, except for flax and chia)

(though did some paleo's deceased early by iron, copper overload of too much red meat indulgence)

then the supposed  berries and nuts  . . . when in season.   Though i dont know what else grub they might have come across of, about anything worth a nibble to try.

and if they lucky to catch fish, espeically ocean catch, .. then their brains would swell. like 'civilized' people.

or just sit at the shore and crack clams for the prize inside,

hmm, wonder if they knew if coconut oil gets them more ketonic brain energies, better than Atkins diet?

It may be that a "paleolithic diet" is associated with health benefits.

Then again, how long did they live?  Were they killed before the results of long term consumption of such a diet could be seen? 

Roger Williams wrote that if yeast were given the ideal environment by nature, i.e., the right amount of nutrients, water, etc., it would take over the world in a matter of months.  But given the limited amount of nutrients naturally available to it, it can never fulfill its inborn capacity to thrive.  Who knows how well and long humans will live given the right conditions and what those conditions are.  Some of my dietary components are made in a lab (supplements).  Am hoping they will give me an edge over stone aged and current homo sapiens. 

and to evermore, your comment about human feedlots was particularly funny.  hmm . . . fatten them up and prop them in front of televisions for slaughter?
