Ever heard of the Paleo diet? It has gained a lot of popularity during recent times. What is interesting to note though is the fact that the idea of Paleo dates far back in time to the days when hunters and gatherers roamed the earth. This is the reason why the diet is also known as the caveman diet. Have you been searching for a diet that actually works? Well, this blog post will inform you about what Paleo is and how it can help you lose weight.
What is Paleo?
The very first thing that you need to know about the Paleo diet is that it is not simply a diet. It is a way of life. If you want to follow it, you will need to give it some time and commitment. But rest assured—the results will be enough to convince you to continue on with the diet.
“Paleo” refers to the Paleolithic Era in history, when we learned to use tools. It is oftentimes referred to as the “Stone Age”. During this time, people could only eat what they could hunt and gather. Since this was before the agricultural revolution, there were no refined, processed or packaged food items available.
Food items that you will rely on when following the Paleo diet include meats, fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds, herbs and spices. Grains, legumes, poultry and beans are also out, as are any processed foods. Alcohol and sugar are strictly forbidden. Of course there are certain veggies like potatoes and squash that can also not be eaten because of their high sugar content. The diet is low on carbs and high on proteins.
Weight Loss through Paleo
It shouldn’t come as a surprise that the Paleo diet is actually extremely healthy. Since all the refined and processed food items have been cleared off the eating list, you naturally eat a much healthier diet. Additionally, the Paleo diet philosophy encourages the dieter to become active physically, which means that you lose weight not only through the diet, but also through the exercise that is added in.
