The Paleo Diet
The Paleo Diet, also known as the Caveman Diet is a diet plan that is based on eating plants but not cereals with eggs, fish and meat. It is called the caveman diet because it is believed that the early man (Caveman) ate this diet 10, 000 years ago.
The original Paleo Diet focused on whole foods that only a hunter-gatherer from the ancient times would have access to, for example, vegetables, roots and tubers, meat, eggs, fish, nuts unprocessed oils, and seeds.
How does the Caveman Diet work?
The caveman diet is usually associated with weight loss because of its arbitrary food choices. Experts and supporters of the diet claim that humans are genetically programmed to eat just like the caveman did years ago. They further argue that the modern Western diet is responsible for the widespread high levels of obesity, diabetes, heart diseases and other chronic health issues.
Different definitions of the Paleo diet have been made by various groups of people. However, they all agree that sporadic eating, with episodes of intermittent fasting, should be observed just like the caveman would have done. During the rest of the day, you can eat foods like nuts, fruits, and vegetables.
Why is the Paleo Diet good for you?
If you are looking for a diet that will enable you to lose weight fast, you should consider the caveman diet. The foods emphasized by this diet are healthy and do not contain empty calories or processed sugars. Additionally, the diet also encourages exercising since the caveman did not just eat and rest, he moved from one place to another while hunting and gathering food (exercise).
Increases your energy levels
The ingredients used in the diet have plenty of good nutrients in them for example protein, important minerals, antioxidants, dietary fibre and vitamins. These foods are highly nutritious and can increase your energy levels significantly. Meat, fish, eggs, nuts and certain fruits are rich sources of energy and body building foods.
It will help in detoxing your system
The foods incorporated in the caveman diet are plant based and organic in nature. They are highly nutritious and can significantly enable you to detoxify your system. On top of that, the caveman diet encourages periods of intermittent fasting which allows the body to detoxify itself naturally. This will enable you to feel clean, have clear and healthy skin, and above all have a healthy body.
The caveman diet is healthy and does not promote the restricted eating style found in most modern diets. This is the reason why modern diets fail and they require a huge amount of willpower to achieve.
