Recently, a new diet, supported by scientific studies, has gained huge popularity, starting a new diet trend. The Paleo Diet promises the best feeding system for losing weight and maintaining your body’s health.
The Paleo Diet, also known as the Caveman Diet is a type of eating very similar to what the people in the Paleolithic era were eating. The diet includes eating mostly meat vegetables and seeds. According to the scientists these are the foods that men are genetically programmed to ingest, thus making the body function to its optimum level. The Caveman Diet has been tested and has proven efficient in numerous real-life situations.
So how does Paleo Diet keep the extra pounds off? It keeps the foods that normally gain you the weight to a minimum. These include: grains, legumes, processed foods and fruits. The diet also promises to keep a series of illnesses away from you. Eating according to the Paleo Diet will ensure a better state of your immune system, thus minimizing the chances of some severe illnesses, such as cancer, diabetes, heart disease, Alzheimer’s and a whole lot other chronic degenerative diseases.
One thing that you should keep in mind, though, is the relation between dieting and exercise. Even though the scientists and the nutritional experts will claim that there is no need for exercise in order to lose weight if you follow the eating rules of the Paleo Diet, exercise is a must if you want to look good slim. Losing weight just by eating right, without making changes in your exercise program, will not help you much. Exercise is also a part of the Caveman’s way of living, as our bodies have been designed to consume energy and thus exercise one way or another.
One unusual aspect of the Paleo Diet is that, unlike other diets, it actually encourages the consumption of meat, making it an impossible choice to those who have chosen the vegan way of eating.
