List A, List B

So here's two lists of lifestyle/eating choices.

List A
  • Low Fat Foods
  • Avoid Meat
  • Prefer Healthy Grains
  • Small, Frequent Meals
  • Low Intensity Exercise (like jogging) for at least 20 minutes
  • Prefer "Cardio"
List B
  • High Fat Foods
  • Prefer Meat
  • Avoid Grains of any Kind
  • Large, Infrequent Meals
  • High Intensity Exercise (like sprinting) for less than 20 minutes
  • Prefer Weightlifting
So which list is healthier?

List A represents the conventional wisdom and List B represents the "Paleo" lifestyle. Notice that in this example they are almost polar opposites. Could conventional wisdom be so wrong?

Stay tuned to find out.
