The Paleo Picture
It’s hard to keep up with the latest diet trend and just when you’re ready to get your slim on, a new flab-fighting fad takes its place. That’s why we’re liking this lifestyle change that dates all the way back to ancient times — for real. The Paleolithic Diet, popularly called “the caveman diet,” maintains the hunter-gatherer mentality of 10,000 years ago.
Don’t worry, bare feet and a loincloth are not required for success — just the motivation to maintain this low-carb, meat-friendly way of life. The diet emphasizes fish, grass-fed animals, veggies, fruits, and nuts, all while steering clear of deprivation. By avoiding legumes, grains, refined sugar, and dairy, your diet will be fresh, unprocessed, and hormone-free — eliminating the things that may contribute to disease in this modern day and age.
Those suffering with gastrointestinal issues and those simply looking to lose weight may particularly benefit from these dietary changes. Other benefits? Clear skin and better teeth, improved sleep patterns, and reduced allergies. And who doesn’t want all of those things?
Learn to cook delish Paleo recipes from books like Everyday Paleo or Practical Paleo and check out blogs like Balanced Bites dedicated to the subject as well. So get back to the root of it all and make positive changes toward Paleo in your kitchen!
