Eating the Food we are Designed to Eat

Eat Healthy While Staying Fit

Healthy, delicious, and simple, the Paleo Diet is the diet we were designed to eat. If you want to lose weight up to 75 pounds in six months-or if you want to attain optimal health, The Paleo Diet will work wonders.  By eating your fill of satisfying and delicious lean meats and fish, fresh fruits, snacks, and non-starchy vegetables, you can lose weight and prevent and treat of heart disease, cancer, osteoporosis, metabolic syndrome, and many other illnesses.

  • Breakthrough nutrition program based on eating the foods we were genetically designed to eat-lean meats and fish and other foods that made up the diet of our Paleolithic ancestors
  • Six weeks of Paleo meal plans to jumpstart a healthy and enjoyable new way of eating as well as dozens of recipes

The Paleo Diet is the only diet proven by nature to fight disease, provide maximum energy, and keep you naturally thin, strong, and active-while enjoying every satisfying and delicious bite.

"Paleo" is really just shorthand for eating real, healthful foods that don't destroy our metabolic, digestive, and immune systems and ensures a no carb diet.

Paleo-Diet-2


The Paleo Diet a.k.a caveman diet recommends simplicity: Order lean meat or seafood with veggies and fresh fruit and call it a night.

How does the Paleo Diet work?

Paleo diets are based on a simple premise—if the cavemen didn’t eat it, you shouldn’t either. So long to refined sugar, dairy, legumes, and grains (this is pre-agricultural revolution); hello to meat, fish, poultry, fruits, and veggies. What you eat and how much depend on your goals or the specific program you’re on, if you choose to follow one.

How to lose weight?

Losing weight was never that easy, Paleo diet has no assurance of being the quickest way to lose weight but the healthiest way to do so.  Paleo diets haven’t yet strained the attention of many researchers. One tiny study that looked at weight loss found that 14 participants lost an average of about 5 pounds after three weeks on a Paleo regimen. (But even the researchers called their study  “underpowered.”) Still, if you build a “calorie deficit” into your Paleo plan—eating fewer calories than your daily recommended max, or burning off extra by exercising—you should get rid of some pounds. How fast and whether you keep them off is up to you.

HIGH BP

Fructose and High Blood Pressure

As mentioned earlier, the Paleo diet can be very effective for reducing heart disease, cancer, osteoporosis, metabolic syndrome, in fact, than a statin drug, it is a high protein diet.  According to Dr. Frassetto, people can see a 30 point drop in cholesterol in just two weeks!

That really is quite remarkable.

It is, however, also quite understandable once you realize that fructose is a major supporter of the hypertension – far more than of salt.  The connecting link between fructose intake and hypertension lies in the uric acid produced.   It is the by product of fructose metabolism and increased uric acid levels drive up your blood pressure. Excess sugars (including grains) also elevate unhealthy cholesterol levels and raise triglyceride levels.

How to do this?

First, you have to set up a diet plan.  When you eat a diet high in fructose and other sugars, it over-taxes your liver as it cannot properly make cholesterol while concurrently processing fructose (which it turns into fat). As a result, you end up with weaken cholesterol formation, which can finally lead to a cholesterol- and cholesterol sulfate deficiency.  At that point, your body begins to form arterial plaque to compensate for this deficiency, because your platelets can produce the cholesterol sulfate your heart and brain needs within that plaque. It's a sort of backup mechanism to maintain proper heart- and brain function.

Unfortunately, it's not an ideal backup mechanism because arterial plaque also increases your risk for heart- and vascular disease. So truly, you'll want to avoid forcing your body to resort to these measures in the first place, and the way you do that is by feeding it correctly... This is yet another essential detail that explains how and why extreme fructose consumption is so damaging to your health.

As you can see, simply cutting out fructose and grains from your diet effectively eradicate one of the underlying causes of a number of health problems, including:

  • Hypertension
  • Insulin resistance
  • High cholesterol
  • High triglycerides
  • Overweight

... and that's one of the primary reasons the Paleo and other low-carb diets work so well.

 Cardio-Exercises -NEW

 

Level of Effort: Moderate

There’s no calorie counting, and the fiber-rich fruits and vegetables will fill you up, as will the lean meat.

Limitations

The Paleo Diet allows for some cheating, especially at first. When you're just starting, you can eat what you want for 3 meals a week. Cordain calls those "open meals." Or you can challenge yourself to just one "open meal" per week.

Exercise

Exercise is not required when you're losing weight.  Just simply include this on your weight loss programs.  This diet is strongly recommended to maintain weight loss and for overall health.

Does It Allow for Dietary Restrictions or Preferences?

Vegetarian or vegan

This diet emphasizes meat and fish, and Cordain says it's impossible to follow a Paleo Diet without eating meat, seafood, or eggs. Excellent vegetarian sources of protein, such as beans and other legumes, are not allowed.

 Low-salt diet

The diet doesn't allow salt, so it may help you cut down on sodium. If you do eat any foods that come from a can or a box, you would still need to check the sodium on food labels.

What Else You Should Know:

Costs:

Eating a lot of meat and fish can raise your grocery bill.  But it quantifies your budget, by reducing the risk of illnesses that costs a lot of medications.

Support

You can do this diet on your own.  If you want to connect to your fellow Paleos, it will be much more of a healthier environment.
