The paleo diet can be defined as the natural food which was being used by the ancient people during the Paleolithic era. It is also called Paleolithic diet, Caveman diet and stone-age diet. Cavemen used to get the food by hunting animals and gathering fruits, nuts, vegetables etc. They were even strong enough to fight with the animals. Because of the Industrialization the processed foods and refined food gained popularity and due to the revolution in the agriculture there was increase in contribution of carbohydrates which in turn diluted the protein content in the human diet. Here I want to ask one thing
“One can not think well, love well, Sleep well, if one has not dined well.” Is it true?
Yes, with Paleo diet one can sleep well, lose weight, become healthy and strong, and lead peaceful life. The reason for this is this type of diet consist of foods which are having high nutritional value and low toxic content.
Paleo diet is against for the foods like grains (wheat, rice, cookies, corn, oats etc), processed foods (dried smoked fish and meat, bacon, canned meat and fish etc), candies, baked goods, sugar and chocolates, dairy products (milk, butter, cheese, ice cream etc), beans, lentils, peanuts etc
Paleo diet includes the foods like meat (goat, cow, chicken, duck etc), seafood (salmon, cod, shellfish etc), green leafy vegetables, fruits (mango, banana, apple etc), almonds, soya bean oil, olive oil etc
If you are the person in search of a diet which makes you healthy, strong and allergy free then this is the perfect diet which meets your criteria. Let me give you scientific reason which supports paleo diet.
In a layman language we can divide fats into two parts. One type of fat is bad fat (saturated fats) and other type is good fat (unsaturated fats). Saturated Fats are found in animal products like butter, cheese, lard and fatty meats, and some vegetable oils such as coconut and palm oil. Unsaturated fats are found in salmon, tuna and sardines, and in oils like corn oil, safflower oil and soybean oil, peanuts, almonds, hazelnuts, and pecans, canola oil, and olive oil. Paleo diet is against for bad fat instead it includes only the foods containing good fat.
Studies have shown that unsaturated fats are heart-healthy and if you want to stay away from degenerative diseases including the deadly cancer, then you must start your Paleo diet-eating-plan right now.
It is not so easy to adopt to this type of diet. Start cooking paleo recipes and buying paleo foods. At beginning stages eat paleo foods twice a week. Then slowly increase the number of days. Eat whatever you want once in a week. Finally completely avoid other foods except paleo foods. Read some inspirational books to get inspiration. Get suggestions from those who are following paleo lifestyle. Do not give up for at least one month. If you find results then no one can stop you. There are so many books like paleo recipe book, paleo diet book etc with which you can make variety of recipes and can enjoy paleo lifestyle.
“You are what you eat – and perhaps surprisingly, you also are what your ancestors ate” … If you start following paleo lifestyle you can give better health and strength to your future generations too.
