Reasons To Go Paleo

The Paleo diet is the healthiest way you can eat because it is the ONLY nutritional approach that works with your genetics to help you stay lean, strong and energetic! Research in biology, biochemistry, Ophthalmology, Dermatology and many other disciplines indicate it is our modern diet, full of refined foods, trans fats and sugar, that is at the root of degenerative diseases such as obesity, cancer, diabetes, heart disease, Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, depression and infertility. – Robb Wolf

As a growing population we have become more health conscious. Nobody likes the idea of eating poorly and having bad health, especially with new knowledge coming out all the time about the dangers of certain foods. A large part of this worry comes from the fact that so much of the food being eaten by people is processed and  manufactured, rather than plucked from the Earth in its natural form which, ofcourse is beneficial for the body.

The paleo diet is a way of eating that is made up of the most nutrient dense foods. These are namely organ meats, bone broth,  Good quality grass fed meats, seafood, probiotic fermented foods, Organic vegetables, eggs, fruit, nuts and seeds, healthy fats and other ingredients . Paleo also initially eliminates a broad range of foods from the diet. These foods are Dairy, gluten, wheat, grains, legumes, all processed foods and all seed and nut oils. Some of these can later be re introduced in to the diet to see if they are tolerated by the body and i will post about this at a later date

One of the key issues with modern processed foods is its complete lack of nutrients. When you look at the cheaper end of the diet spectrum, people eating processed food will be consuming a lot of calories, but will have little nutritional content to show for it. Paleo diets focus on options which are packed with the nutrients you need, along with vitamins, minerals, and other import features of food. This can improve the condition of your entire body.

A lot of people blame the sedentary lifestyles a lot of modern people lead on the food which they eat. When you are lacking the nutrients you need, it will be hard to feel energised, and this can have a knock on effect on things like exercise. When you don’t have the energy to go to the gym or out for a run, you won’t be able to reap the benefits of exercise. This leaves people gaining weight, becoming unfit, and letting their body fall into disrepair. Getting over this hurdle doesn’t have to be a challenge, though, with a paleo route giving you the chance to escape this sort of issue. 

Of course, diets aren’t the only part of life which can impact your health. A lot of people in the modern world don’t get enough sleep, for example, and this can make it hard to control your weight and keep exercising. Along with this, common activities like smoking can negatively impact your heart in a similar way to eating processed food, making companies like an obvious go-to for people who are finding it hard to quit. It’s always worth looking for ways to change your lifestyle to make it better, even if this means sacrificing the things you like, as a longer and happier life can often be a result of this sort of adaptation.

Hopefully, this post will inspire you to start making some big changes in your life. Going paleo has been a life changer for me! If you have tried the paleo diet yourself? What are your experiences? What has worked for you and what have you struggled with?
