Mark here with my first blog post. Let’s talk about the Paleo diet basics and how this diet can pull us back up that hill. First of all I really like to think of this as lifestyle change rather than a diet. Diets deprive you, starve you and in some cases actually harm you.
If you haven’t heard of the Paleo diet plan the article will give you Paleo diet basics. It will give you some background and what it is all about. I what to show how easy this diet really is and show why everybody should be on it.
To begin with, technically speaking this is not a new diet. I really started in the Paleolithic era, which was the caveman era. This diet is actually named for that era. Back then they were hunters and gatherers that ate the foods Mother Nature had to offer. They didn’t farm or come up with hybrid foods of their own. The food they ate was naturally from the land.
There have been studies that show that these people didn’t suffer health problems like we have today. They didn’t have cancer, diabetes, irritable bowel syndrome, allergies and others. The fact is that there are people even today who live much like those cavemen of old that don’t have the ailments we have and that maintain strong bones and teeth even in their late ages.
It was when farming and agriculture came into being and introduced dairy and grains into out diet that we began our down hill fall as far as health. Add to that the additives and preservatives add by modern man and you complete the fall to the bottom of the health we have today.
Okay so let’s talk about the Paleo diet basics and how this diet can pull us back up that hill. First of all I really like to think of this as lifestyle change rather than a diet. Diets deprive you, starve you and in some cases actually harm you. With this diet you merely exchange harmful foods for healthy ones. You are going to eat like the cavemen did, from Mother Nature and that includes more things then you might think.
We’re not talking just fruits, vegetables and nuts, oh no, there’s also seafood, poultry, eggs and even meat in there. Together with a good Paleo cookbook (I’ll tell you about one in a minute) and right herbs and spices your meals can be different and exciting everyday. This diet even lets you throw some dessert and snacks in there.
So there you have the Paleo diet basics. The benefits of this diet is of course weight loss and better health, but you also get more energy and better looking skin. So are you ready to take the plunge? If so you can look forward to a healthier you.
