Thank you so much for taking the time out to read this post because I want to talk about the benefits that a Paleo Diet can bring. For somebody just getting started & looking into going paleo things can seem a bit daunting so lets first define exactly what the Paleo diet is.
The Paleo Diet is basically focusing on the way that our ancestors ate and in these modern times we have a lot of refined grains and a lot of sugar. Our diet is just not very healthy, so the Paleo diet is eating the way that our bodies were meant to consume food and metabolize food. This helps us to lose weight and also improve a lot of health conditions like autoimmune disease, allergies, leaky gut syndrome, things like that. So many conditions that are so prevalent today make us go like, why am I suffering these symptoms? Why is my kid like this, or why am I like this? Why am I constantly having an allergic reactions to this, that & the other and we just don't realize that a lot of it just in part due to all the processed stuff were constantly consuming on a daily basis so the concept of the Paleo diet is that our our body hasn't really evolved. It hasn't kept up with this technology.
We haven't been eating greens for that long. If you look at the evolution of mankind with all these technologies that have advanced, so our food has changed, but our bodies haven't been able to keep up with it. So our digestion is screwed up and now we're kind of suffering because of it.
So, what are the cornerstones and the foundation food items of a Paleo diet? What are the focal points of a Paleo diet?
Well, the focal points are removing processed foods, removing things that are packaged, focusing on whole foods like fruits, vegetables and meat products, meat right anything that you'd find in nature.
So, if it grew from the ground or if it roamed the earth then it's probably good. I remember somebody I worked with years ago and he would say if it's swum through the water, if it's run across the ground, if it flew through the air or grew from the ground then basically you're good to go.If a caveman was eating it, you should probably be eating it too.
So, for anybody's, just starting out if you're a beginner use that as kind of your motto.
Luckily, there's lots of stuff you can eat and when I think diet , I think of Paleo.
