Paleo Diet, For the Carnivore in You!
I will try to write when I can.
There is an old diet that is quickly becoming popular again.
The Paleo Diet has been used for hundreds of years.
The foods associated with the diet are fresh meat, fish, seafood, fruits, nuts, vegetables, seeds, and healthful oils (olive, coconut, avocado, macadamia, walnut and flax seed).
The foods NOT associated with the diet are dairy foods, cereal grains, legumes, refined sugars and processed foods.
Illnesses, Disorders, and Diseases that CAN be alleviated with the Paleo Diet are:
- Type 2 Diabetes
- Cardiovascular diseases
- Auto-Immune diseases
- Myopia (nearsightedness)
- Varicose veins, hemorrhoids, diverticulitis, gastric reflux
- Many, many more
Proteins are coupled with the fiber from fruits and vegetables to help keep you feeling full in between meals.
The Paleo Diet is for the carnivore in many of us and is low in sodium
The only two cons to this diet is that, one, it costs quite a bit to do and the second is that you say goodbye to grains and dairy.
There is a relatively balanced concept to getting the appropriate fat, protein, and carbohydrate calories that your body needs to function well.
There has recently been found that grains are considerably fatty; so the maker of the Paleo Diet has decided that it would be better to cut out grains.
Check out this diet and see if it is right for you.
Keep in mind that this is an opinion and just my observation of this diet.
It seems to be a diet that is quickly becoming popular and could be a diet that can very well save your life in the long run!
