Like I mentioned before, I am a fan of The Paleo Diet.

The Paleo Diet is known as the Caveman Diet and Stone Age Diet. The name pretty much explains the meaning. If our prehistoric ancestors did not eat it then we should not eat it.

The Paleo Diet is a high protein and fiber diet; meat, fruit, vegetables, nuts, and no refined sugars. I know what you are thinking. What about  grain? What about dairy? There is no grain nor dairy in this diet. It is proven that they are highly processed food and also grains are high in carbohydrates and contains bad calories. I already mentioned dairy before on my post Almond milk vs. Cow’s Milk. Milk has a lot of saturated fat,high glycemic index ( measures glucose leaves after eating a particular food. High G.I. (will store fat), high cholesterol, sugar, sodium, not gluten free, lactose,  and fat. The only positive about milk is the calcium and the protein.

You might be sad to hear about the grain and dairy but you should be happy to hear there is no calorie counting in this diet!! That does not mean let’s go crazy and eat and eat. Just means the calorie intake from meat, fruit,vegetables, and nuts  are about half or less then bad carbs ( grain, dairy, and refined sugar). Which means you can eat a little more and it wont hurt you like the bad carbs.

Loren Cordain, PhD, who wrote a book on The Paleo Diet, claims that by eating like our prehistoric ancestors, we will be leaner and less likely to get diabetes,heart disease, cancer, and other health problems. Cordain also proves you will gain a lot more energy from this diet.

There are awesome receipts and lots to choose from a Paleo Diet. I will be posting a Paleo receipt on my Receipt page tomorrow so keep your eyes out for that.

The link below there is a list of  Paleo foods you can eat. Enjoy!
