Dietary Patterns are Linked to Cardiovascular Risk Factors but Not to Inflammatory Markers in Alaska Eskimos.
Our data show that the traditional diet is related to a better profile of cardiovascular disease risk factors and should be encouraged.
The traditional diet is described as:
fish, native sea and land mammals and their fats and oils, wild greens, stew with mostly meat, stew with mostly rice or noodles, native birds, wild berries, and native berry agutuk. This diet scored low in candy bars, sugar, syrup, store-bought nonhydrogenated vegetable fats, peanut butter, milk, cheese, ice cream, and nondairy creamer.(not sure how rice or noodles are traditional to the Eskimo....but we'll let that one go)

Roughly 50% carbs, 15% protein and 35% fat..... still not sure abou all those carbs.
To be honest looking at the diets the macro percentages are not that different....one thing that does stand out is that the traditional diet is the least processed. The "healthy" one has more grains and beans.
Not quite sure what this one tells us to be honest!
