Primal -paleo diet
I've been doing primal diet for quite a while as ability permits. I gotta say its pretty cool indeed.
the diet is really not as much of a diet, but rather a lifestyle.
it refers to primal individuals, who lived years and years ago and lived in the wild under primal conditions. that is no electricity, no agriculture, pretty much nothing. like it was before the age of the dawn.
the whole gist of it is - those people never ate any grain, because it needs refinement. in raw form its not designed to be processed by our bodies.
so eliminating all pastas, breads and grains is the main goal in this diet.
that leaves you with all natural products found in nature we can eat.
meat, seafood, vegies, nuts, fruits.
which is nice.
its been working well for me. it eliminates a variety of things you don't eat but I've been feeling pretty good physically lately.
what do you think?
I have also been doing this off and on for the last 4 months (Xmas threw a spanner into the mix). So far I've lost 8kg (17.6lb) and am feeling better for it. I recommend it to everyone I know, but I start sounding like a crazy person after a while.
haha yes you do start sounding crazy trying to convince people :-) but hey, best people are convinced by examples. If it works for you and makes your life better soon others will follow :-)
My family has been eating mostly paleo for the past two years. My husband lost 40 pounds easily on it. He got rid of high blood pressure, high cholesterol and acid reflux. I boosted my energy level by getting rid of a lot of sugar. My daughter has increased concentration in school due to less sugar highs and lows. It works great. My friends have asked what we've done and are starting to incorporate some paleo changes as well. And yes, sometimes you do feel like a crazy person talking about it so much. But it works well.
The diet makes high claims on its health benefits; claims that were mostly never scientifically studied, and go against the current scientific understanding. In particular it claims to be successful in reverting serious degenerative conditions, like cancer and osteoporosis.
