The Paleo Diet (a.k.a Paleo lithic) mimics the types of foods that were eaten during the paleolithic time period. The foods were high in beneficial nutrients such as soluble fiber, antioxidant vitamins, omega-3s etc. Nowadays our society is filled with refined sugars and grains, saturated fats & trans fats, processed foods. All of that stuff causes weight gain, diabetes, cancers and other health problems.
The Paleo Diet is all about fruit, veggies, lean meats, fish, nuts & berries. It is not a calorie counting diet…even using the word ‘diet’ is not good. Paleo is a lifestyle choice. The whole point of it is really going back to the basics. Eating fresh and healthy! Foods today are filled with different ingredients to keep it staying on the shelf longer. Think about that…do you really want something that was scientifically created to stay on a shelf longer in your body? I think not!
In my humble opinion I believe that because of the huge processed food industry that is where our crazy diseases are popping out of the wood works. Also, having a paleo lifestyle is not only healthy but you can lose weight! I know..go figure!
