Have you ever heard of the paleo diet? Maybe you often hear about various types of diets with the main purpose being to improve body health and lose weight. One well-known type of diet is the Paleo diet. You can visit our website to get the Paleohacks Cookbook.
Paleo diet or also known as ancient human diet (caveman diet) is a diet that adapts the eating habits of ancestors in ancient times. As the name suggests paleo, this diet follows the dietary habits of people during the Paleolithic period (around 2.5 million to 10,000 years ago). The purpose of this diet is to restore human eating habits like ancient humans. The Paleo diet believes that the human body is more suitable to be entered into a diet like the ancient people (who consumed food from hunting and gathering) compared to the modern diet, where there was a change in the more sophisticated farming system.
Because of the mismatch with the change in the way humans get food, diseases such as obesity, diabetes and heart disease suffer many people today. By eating foods like ancestors in prehistoric times, you will be leaner and less risky to suffer from diabetes, heart disease, cancer, and other health problems, as reported by WebMD.
Cordain also said that by adopting the Paleo diet, you can reduce the body’s glycemic load, have a healthier ratio of saturated fatty acids to unsaturated fatty acids, increase the consumption of vitamins, and have a balance of protein, fat, and carbohydrates, reported from health.com. You might also be able to lose your weight without cutting calories by taking a paleo diet because this diet is rich in protein and fiber.
You don’t have to count how many calories you should eat or how many calories you should limit when undergoing the Paleo diet. Fruits, vegetables, and lean meat must be enough to meet the calories you need.
