What are the benefits of Paleo Diet? Firstly, to understand its benefits, we need to understand the paleo diet completely.
The paleo diet is based on a very simple idea.Humans can sustain a diet that consists of simple foods consumed from the beginning of Paleolithic era like wild animals,fowl, eggs,fish, shellfish, vegetables, fruits, nuts and seed. Back Then, the most common source of food was meat consumed from wild animals. They evolved by learning how to fish and how to find wild fruits, nuts and seeds.These foods, combined, create a perfect balance of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants in our body.Looks amazing, right?Many history experts say that the first human real progress came with agriculture, about 10.000 years ago, specifically when they learned to grow legumes and grains. Unfortunately with this first step in human evolvement, human body began to slowly decline.So how can this diet help me to stay healthy?
Let's discover some important reasons to try it!
Be gone stomach dysfunctions!.Well, first of all, Paleo Diet is good for you because it does not contain grains and legumes. People tend to believe that these foods are good for your health but in reality they can cause a lot of problems. You can develop these problems because of the gluten, lectins and phytates that are found in grains and legumes. Leaky gut syndrome, gas, diarheea and constipation are just a few of the digestive dysfunctions.
Worried that this diet does not have enough fiber for you?You should't be because seasonal fruits and vegetables that consist an important part of this diet contain about eight times the fiber you can get when choosing whole grain.
Throw those refined carbohydrates away! Carbohydrates are an important part in everyone's diet. Unfortunately we tend to replace nutritious aliments with refined and processed carbs. I strongly do not recommend this because you might develop insulin resistance and metabolic syndromes!
It is proven that if you let go of those refined carbs and add more fat and protein to your nutrition you will regain your health and lose weight also. Forget wheat four and corn syrup. Forget fast-foods, forget sodas, let go of that sugar-filled meals that will surely give you at least one heart sickness and one digestive problem!
Perfect harmony between Omega-6 and Omega-3! You are skeptical that the risk of heart disease will grow because of the dietary fat in the Paleo Diet?Don't be because heart inflammation is related to cardiovascular problems which evolve from the unbalanced ratio of Omega-6 and Omega-3. Omega-6 excess can cause cardiovascular problems. Unfortunately stores are filled with processed foods that contain an excess of Omega-6: corn-based products, canola and soybean oils.
A Paleo Diet that is filled with grass-fed animals and wild fish develops a perfect ratio of Omega-6 and Omega-3.
Only healthy dairy! Certain types of dairy are very good for your health.. Full-fat milk is a very useful fountain of k2 vitamins and also vitamins A and D. This contributes to heart vitality and give a boost to your immune system.Be very careful because I am talking about full-fat milk. Low-fat milk and free-fat milk are not recommended because they are processed products and they lack in those vitamins.
And if you still not convinced about full-fat milk, here's the best reason to have it in your diet:full-fat milk prevents diabetes, cancer and contributes in weight loss!
If you have these complications you must try the paleo diet and you will see an improvement in your health in just a few weeks.
