So what is Paleo diet? A pyramid illustration from fitbomb will do the explanation.
Basically, Paleo is like caveman diet. You eat anything that can be hunted or just eat it the way God made it. The best decription of Paleo diet can be found at whole9life:
I eat “real” food -- fresh, natural food like meat, vegetables and fruit. I choose foods that are nutrient dense, with lots of naturally-occurring vitamins and minerals, over foods that have more calories but less nutrition. And food quality is important -- I’m careful about where my meat comes from, and buy produce locally and organically as often as possible.
It’s not a low calorie “diet” -- I eat as much as I need to maintain strength, energy and a healthy weight. In fact, my diet is probably much higher in fat than you’d imagine. Fat isn’t the enemy -- it’s a great energy source when it comes from high quality foods like avocado, coconut and nuts. And I’m not trying to do a “low carb” thing, but since I’m eating vegetables and fruits instead of bread, cereal and pasta, it just happens to work out that way.
Eating like this is good for maintaining a healthy metabolism, and reducing inflammation within the body. It’s been doing great things for my energy levels, body composition and performance in the gym. It also helps to minimize my risk for a whole host of lifestyle diseases and conditions, like diabetes, heart attack and stroke.
I lost 4 pounds just by doing it for 30 days. What do I have to lose if I make it a lifestyle? I still get to eat burger, pizza and fries if I want to, but I always eat in moderation. Balance diet+workout = healthy lifestyle. You wanna give it a go? Please leave a comment below or email me. Thank you!
