Excess weight, heart diseases, and diabetes — this can be the outcome of the diets including the ingredients our body rejects to accept. Well, it accepts as it has no choice but are those products the ones that bring us the benefits? A paleo diet allows us to eat only those products humans were able to get during the Paleolithic era, which was round about 2,5 million years ago.
This diet includes fruits, vegetables, lean meat, fish, nuts, and seeds. While complying with the rules of the paleo diet, you have to forget about dairy products, legumes, and whole grains, let alone sweets, cookies, cakes, and all processed food. It’s also forbidden to consume potatoes.
It’s believed that the paleo diet can boost our overall health condition by excluding high-fat and processed products. The thing is that the advocates of the paleo diet suggest our bodies don’t match the twenty-first-century diets where refined sugar and dairy products rule the world. Farming industries have changed the way people eat which, in their opinion, led to obesity and various diseases people are fighting.
If you want to lose fat or support a healthy weight, the paleo diet is the one you can try. Several trials show that it is more beneficial when compared with other diets such as the Mediterranean Diet or the Diabetes Diet. The results of following the paleo diet:
significant weight loss;
better glucose forbearance;
better blood pressure;
Nevertheless, this diet is stricter as it requires excluding daily products that provide our body with protein and calcium, various whole grains, and legumes which are an amazing source of various important nutrients. Plus, buying cheese is cheaper than buying the meat of grass-fed animals or different nuts. Thus, the paleo diet may take extra money than other diets. But when money and willpower aren’t an issue for you, you can try it for a few weeks and enjoy the lean body later.
