Let me get you up to speed!
The Basics of the Paleo Diet
The Paleo Diet is an effort to eat the way we used to eat a long time ago! Back before the age of agriculture, human kind would hunt animals and gather fruits and vegetables for food. We didn’t have farms with access to grain and processed foods. We had whatever nature offered to us for that day; nothing more and nothing less! The Paleo diet is an attempt to get back to where we used to be. Please don’t misunderstand; this doesn’t mean you have to go live in a cave and hunt for the rest of your life! That would be ridiculous of us to ask of you! All we ask of you is to restrict yourself to the same diet that you would have had in those times.
So, What Exactly do I have to do?
It is not a case of what you must ‘do’, but rather what you must ‘not do!’ In order to fulfil the Paleo diet, you must not eat anything that does not grow naturally. Cereals, bread, candies, and any other processed food are not allowed during this diet. You must limit yourself to meats, vegetables, fruits, oils and nuts that grow in nature without human intervention. Anything grown by humans or from factories should be avoided!
Specifics about the Foods You can Eat
You may eat meat, but it must be grass-raised! If an animal is raised on grains then it will have the same internal issues that we humans have from them. Any animal you eat, whether from land, air, or ocean, must be free range, (Not caged), and be raised on natural foods as well. In regards to fruits, any and all of these may be eaten in their natural state. You must be careful about the quantity of fruits that you consume as many of them contain large amounts of sugar; even though these sugars are natural sugars, having too many in your system will harm your body and could cause weight gain. Any oils that you use in your cooking must also be natural. Some great oils to use are olive oil, coconut oil, and avocado oil; all wonderful and natural oils! Nuts are also good for your diet, so long as they are not salted or contain other additives.
The only thing you must be aware of is that nuts are high in calories so don’t eat too many of them at once! So long as you follow these dietary requirements, you will be well on your way to becoming a healthier and stronger you! So what are you waiting for?
