In this video I take a look at what is the paleo diet and any of the pros that you can expect to get from going on the diet. There is quite a bit to cover so I will just touch on most of the basics.
As you may or may not have heard paleo is a great way to lose weight, get fit and increase your overall health. There are many aspects to the diet that may be a little overwhelming at first but once you have the basics down pat it’s pretty easy to follow.
The Paleolithic diet is based off the human diet of our ancestors 10,000 years ago. The overall idea is that they lacked a lot of the modern diseases we face today with the modern diet being partly to blame. In theory returning to our roots and eating fresh unprocessed food should help our bodies better consume and utilise the food we eat whilst also avoiding a lot of toxins.
As you have probably worked out by the video and the paragraph above is that this means you will need to cook from scratch. It also means the removal of any processed foods such as any kind of grain product, dairy, sugar and much more.
All this is pretty important in understanding what is the paleo diet and how it can benefit you. There is one huge point that a lot of people following this diet would say and that is to make sure that you keep following the diet past your goals. If you stop as soon as you get to your goal weight or feeling better than you’re likely to fall into old habits and lose all your hard work. Just something important to keep in mind for not just this diet but any diet.
Now I hope the video covers everything there is to know about what is the paleo diet and any other small basics you need to know. If you have some feedback or noticed something I said is wrong, then please don’t hesitate to drop a comment below or over at paleocrashcourse.com
