Paleo: 12 weeks to change your life
Over 200 original Paleo recipes to provide the ultimate in health and nutrition.
A Paleo diet requires you to eat REAL food; you eat the way people did in the Stone Age. The diet is based around any food that could be hunted, grown or foraged by our ancestors and includes meats, fish, nuts, seeds, vegetables, fruit and natural oils.
When cavemen roamed the Earth, there were no processed foods or refined sugars and grains. Our bodies are biologically designed to eat and process only certain foods, therefore as other foods have been integrated into our diets over the years our bodies have been unable to adapt and as a result have failed to function effectively. The result can be weight gain, fatigue and [preventable] illness.
By continuing to eat foods our bodies cannot process, we develop biochemical imbalances that affect what we eat and how we function. If we remove these foods from our diet it allows our bodies to process our food effectively and return to optimum condition and functioning.
By eliminating processed foods and replacing them with whole, clean foods, people could begin to experience numerous health benefits.
If you consider lean meat for example, lean proteins support strong muscles, healthy bones and optimal immune function. Protein also makes you feel satisfied between meals.
Fruits and vegetables are known to be rich in antioxidants, vitamins, minerals and phytonutrients. These have been shown to decrease the likelihood of developing a number of degenerative diseases including cancer, diabetes and neurological decline.
These are basic facts, we should be considering when planning your daily diet.
