Paleo plans cut out processed sugars, excess salt, and refined vegetable oils, which contribute to obesity, high blood pressure and heart disease. They also exclude legumes (beans, peas and lentils) because of their lectins and phytic acid, which are difficult for our bodies to digest.

Shilstone described Goodman’s weight loss as an “ongoing process” in 2015

“This didn’t happen overnight,” Shilstone told the New York Post in 2015, explaining that he introduced Goodman to the Mediterranean diet.

Insider previously reported that this diet was widely considered one the healthiest ways to eat and was linked to good heart health and a lower risk of some diseases.

The diet focuses on vegetables, legumes, seafood, and olive oil, and encourages a reduction of processed and fried foods, red meat, refined grains, sugar, and saturated fat.

Shilstone said that Goodman’s weight-loss success had come about mostly in the previous two years.

As well as continuing to exercise six days a week using an elliptical bicycle and a treadmill, he also did 10,000 to 12,000 steps every day.
