Somebody asked me about Paleo diet the other day and to tell you the truth I didn’t know much about it. Yes, I knew it’s the caveman’s diet and that it’s pretty much a diet restricted to the foods our cave dwelling ancestors ate thousands of years ago.
So I went on a mini mission and gathered a lot of info and this is my 2 cents worth:
- It fosters healthy eating habits (by encouraging lean protein and vegetable consumption)
- Reduces cravings
- helps loose fat as opposed to muscle
- cannot drink alcohol (well that settles it for me…..this diet is out….)
- there are constipation issues
If you are still interested in this diet after this simple, quick review please explore it further in more detail
My advice, for those who care to know hear it, is DO NOT even try a diet you know you cannot follow for the rest of your life. You will only put your mind and your body through stress and disappointment. Most diets have some good value, something to add to your “nutritional toolbox” so take what works for you and make a change that is permanent and feasible even if it is a small change.
Ok, that’s all about the Paleo diet. Leave me a comment.
To your health!
