It is therefore not surprising that it is predicted to once again be the one diet that many people are looking to follow in 2014 in their search for natural weight loss and improved health.
The popularity of the Paleo lifestyle has undoubtedly increased so rapidly due to its extraordinary results in terms of losing weight and improving people’s health and zest for life.
3 Ways the Paleo Diet Lifestyle Can Help You Lose Weight Naturally
1. Cut Out the Simple Carbs and Processed Foods
By this I mean not only cut out most carbohydrates from your diet, but absolutely cut out the simple carbs like junk food, all processed foods, white bread, pasta, white rice, cookies, sweetened drinks, potatoes and so on.
Simple carbs get digested & converted into glucose very quickly with the result that it floods your system which cannot process it effectively which means that it simply gets dumped into your gut as fat – also causes insulin issues leading to obesity & diabetes.
So not consuming these types of foods immediately starts the “healing process” of your digestive tract, gut, liver & pancreas and will shortly start making you feel less bloated accompanied by a small amount of weight loss around your middle.
If you have to have something sweet you can get it from raw honey or coconut palm sugar but only in moderation.
2. Eat Like Our Ancestors
Paleo is also referred to as the caveman diet for an important reason.
It is argued that humans are genetically programmed to eat like cavemen did all those years ago & to eat that way is the best for our systems.
Furthermore eating like our ancestors will reduce obesity, diabetes, heart disease, depression & other debilitating diseases that plague today’s people.
This caveman diet will provide you with a range of foods rich in protein, fiber & fluids that combine well together to satisfy your hunger and controlling your blood sugar levels at the same time which is key to preventing weight gain & type-2 diabetes.
It is recommended that a certain amount of physical activity should be combined with the Paleo eating plan for best results.
So if you live a sedentary lifestyle you should try & do at least 30 minutes of fairly vigorous physical activity every day in the way of brisk walking or jogging – the key therefore, is to do some form of regular exercise, after all our ancestors were always on the move hunting for food.
In conclusion, many of the ailments we suffer with a modern lifestyle emanate from our diets, bad food choices and poor eating habits.
This means if you continue to eat this way you are likely to become obese and start experiencing serious medical complications by the time you are 50 which will quite possibly be the cause of your demise by the time you are 70.
Following the Paleo lifestyle will not only help you slim down and lose weight naturally, but you will also experience a significant improvement in your health and well being.
