What is The Paleo Diet?
If you are looking to learn more about the paleo lifestyle and what it is all about then you’ve come to the right place!
The paleo diet/lifestyle/movement, whatever you want to call it is a way of eating for your lifestyle. Delicious, highest nutrient, easy eating foods are chosen above commercialised, modified or hard to process options.
The premise of the movement is that we are more suited to eating certain foods which haven’t been the product of big business or agriculture. Grains, sugary foods and modified fats are all guilty of causing harm to our bodies, and the aim is to get back on track by eating foods our bodies recognise and know what to do with.
We should be eating more healthy fats, nutrient rich vegetables and should be eating less grains (wheat, rice, gluten based foods), carbohydrates and genetically modified or processed foods.
The Paleo Diet: The Ultimate Low Carb Diet Lifestyle?
Paleo shouldn’t be thought of as a diet but more as a lifestyle blueprint for health. There is no point in making changes to your eating habits with the goal of getting rid of some weight, only to revert to bad eating habits and put it all back on again. This is the difference between diet and lifestyle decisions, and Paleo is best used long term. Crash diets don’t work because they don’t allow you to really benefit from healthy dietary changes. They leave you wondering exactly why you are eating the foods you are eating and end up working against you, ultimately hurting your body and preventing you from losing weight.
Ultimately, you should approach weight loss as a “side effect” of getting your diet on track because there are so many benefits to be enjoyed such as improved energy, sleep, mood, disease prevention and injury recovery. Crash diets don’t allow your body to get to the point where it is healthy enough to recover from decades of eating the wrong foods, living a sedentary lifestyle and coping with medicines, drugs and treatments. Paleo is a low stress, low carb diet lifestyle that works for anyone who tries it and can be tailored to every family member.
“There is no need to calorie count, weigh your food or watch your portions. Eat delicious foods often and enjoy effortless weight loss, improved energy and forget what the inside of doctor’s rooms look like…”
