My husband and I have been following the Paleo Diet for over a year now. We have lost a few pounds and seen a decrease in digestive issues, but more importantly, we have gained extra energy and muscle mass as a result of following this high protein, low carb diet.
Want to know more? Basically, the Paleo Diet encourages people to cut out grains and dairy. The iconograph below from A Clean Plate explains what it means to “eat like a caveman,” as well as some of the benefits.
Recently, I have been experiencing some health issues (I’ll share more about this at a later time) and sought guidance from a local Natural Health Clinic. The doctor looked at my blood work and body composition assessment results and said that I was pretty healthy, largely in part to following the Paleo Diet.
As you can tell, I am definitely a fan of the Paleo lifestyle! I recognize that it is not the only healthy eating option out there and it has received its fair share of criticism. Nevertheless, it has worked for us.
The truth is – a single diet (even the Paleo diet) does not work for every person. What has worked for you?
If you want to try the Paleo diet, then stay tuned for my future posts about my meal plans, recipes, and the additional benefits of adopting this lifestyle!
