What is the Paleo Diet?
There’s a lot of confusion surrounding the Paleo diet. Some write it off as a fad while others think it entails eating only meat. The Paleo diet attempts to bring our modern day eating habits back to Paleolithic times, when mankind was hunting and gathering rather than grocery shopping. It gets rid of foods that are byproducts of agriculture and industrialization, like wheat, legumes, refined sugar, and dairy. It focuses on meat, vegetables, fruits, nuts, and seeds. These foods put the body in a healthy state that could be the key to helping with modern diseases that come from an unhealthy lifestyle, like obesity, digestive problems, and more.
5 Good Reasons to Switch to a Paleo Diet
With so many diet plans being pitched to you on a daily basis, what makes Paleo the right choice? Here are the five best reasons to make the switch to a healthier you with Paleo:
Reason #1: Effortless Weight Loss
The approved Paleo foods work for you rather than against you, so your body is never fighting against what it just ate. Instead you’ll have increased energy levels, better sleep, and weight loss as a natural byproduct of an improved lifestyle.
Reason #2: It Can Help with Health Conditions
Once your body is back in alignment with the foods it was naturally designed to eat amazing things start to happen. Blood sugar stabilizes, blood pressure lowers, bad cholesterol goes down, good cholesterol goes up, stress levels decrease, mood improves, and on and on!
Reason #3: It’s Not Confusing
You won’t be faced with the challenge of keeping track of a point system, counting calories, counting carbs, or forced to buy brand name pre-packaged diet foods to succeed. There’s not a guru that has the secret under lock and key. It’s a simple way of eating clean and healthy.
Reason #4: It Will Always Be There for You
If you’re tired of yo-yo dieting and jumping from one trend to the next when a diet stops working, give Paleo a try. Try it for a month and you’ll likely stick with it once you see and feel the results. It’s a way of eating that will be the same ten years from now as it is today.
Reason #5: Tastiest “Diet Food” on the Planet
Maybe that’s why so many who try the Paleo diet stick with it and make it into a lifestyle. Once you master the right substitutes there’s few dishes that are off limits. You’ll find hundreds of delicious recipes you can start making today and you’ll never look back!
