The paleo diet focuses on consuming foods we as humans evolved to eat, while simultaneously eliminating the over processed sugar laden foods now linked to causing the many diseases we are faced with in society today.
What Foods Make up The Paleo Diet?
Nuts and Seeds
These foods are available through mother nature with no agricultural or processing needed to be eatable.
But things have changed. Bread became whiter and whiter, lacteous went from raw to pasteurised and sugar began to make its way into almost every modernised food product.
Many foods are restricted on this diet for the reason that that they were not available to our prehistoric ancestors. Included in these foods are all processed foods, sugar, salt, grains, legumes, dairy products, coffee and alcohol. Potatoes are also restricted because the varieties available now are genetically and nutritionally altered. Potatoes are much higher in carbohydrates compared to those available in Stone Age period.
We are living in a society where the rate of illness and disease is on a continuous rise, and nutrition has the ability to take charge of our health, wellness and longevity.
There is a common link towards nutrition and health, and nutrition for treating illness.
Good nutrition, obtainable through the consumption of nutritionally rich foods making up the paleo diet and has and continues to treat and cure many conditions which go un-treated (and sometimes looked at as un-treatable) every day.
The Paleo diet is the oldest and most basic diet and provides us with good health.
