Introduction

The Paleo diet is short for Paleolithic, which is also widely known as the Caveman diet. The diet dates back to the work of gastroenterologist Walter Voegtlin who published The Stone Age Diet back in the mid seventies. The concept was later popularized by nutritionist, Loren Cordain with his best selling book The Paleo Diet.

While it is known to be somewhat of a fad diet, the roots of it are based in compelling proof. The concept is based around the speculated diet and lifestyle of our ancestors who lived 2.5 million years ago until the end of the last Ice Age about 10,000 years ago, this period is known as the Paleolithic Period.

Until about 10,000 years ago Humans had not developed any farming or agricultural practices, meaning that their lifestyles were extremely different than ours. Our ancestors lived as nomads, constantly on the move to hunt animals, which were their main food source. The hunter/gatherer dynamic was the only way they knew their needs of survival could be met.

In this lifestyle our ancestors got plenty of exercise since the needs of survival demanded it. Their diets consisted mainly of meat and foraged berries, nuts and vegetables with little to no grain or starch.

Diets as we know today did not exist, people did not have the knowledge or privilege to make a choice of what they ate, whatever they were lucky enough to hunt and gather made up their diet.

As Voegtlin’s research suggests, the “Caveman Diet” was much healthier than the modern diet. Today we are bogged down by processed, treated and refined food products that are not good for us at all. Eating has evolved into a avenue of entertainment for a lot of people, staving off boredom with excessive amounts of salt, sugar and fat. Society has morphed eating into a social activity that occurs three or more times a day, with the bulk of the food being poorly chosen to fit the body’s needs.

It is time to take a step back from these unhealthy modern habits in a better direction, the past.

Chapter 1 – Why go Paleo?

The term Diet is usually used in a way to convey temporary dietary restriction, meaning that it is not and will not be the norm. Vegetarianism is a example of a more permanent diet, in which the word should be used. The diet is composed of all the food and drink we consume, which in modern times is quite difficult to keep track of. Can you think of what you had for lunch or dinner five days ago?

For a lot of people the paleo diet turns into a long term commitment once they have experienced the changes that take place with their body. The body may take a little while to adjust to the changes and start reaping the benefits, so it can take two weeks to a month to get acquainted with the changes. Here are some of the reasons people choose to go Paleo.

It Eliminates the Junk Food – When you have dietary restrictions in place a lot of foods are simply off limits. Since the majority of processed junk food contains a large amount of the ingredients you are supposed to stay away from, there is no reason to give in. It build your Food Conscious, and eliminates a lot of impulse purchases.

It Helps You Maintain a Healthy Weight – Once your body has adjusted to the Paleo foods your body will be running at optimum efficiency. The digestive tract will be performing properly and your metabolism will improve. Good food with quality nutrients keeps the body running the best.

Stops Allergic Complications – Most of the common food allergens that people have cannot be found on the Paleo approved food list. It can give the body a nice break from troubled digestion. Some people do not know the extent of complication that even minor allergies hold, it is a experience see what it is like when you get rid of those foods.

It Improves Overall Health – The sheer amount of energy and time that the digestion system takes to process food is mind boggling. When your system is fed quality food it doesn’t have to work as hard breaking down copious amounts of starches, complex carbohydrates or eliminate as many toxins. That reserved energy does not get stored, it goes to work around the rest of the body, reducing inflammation, regenerating tissue and blood cells, strengthening the immune system and healing the skin.

It Gives You More Energy – Protein and nutrient dense fruits and vegetables will massively improve your energy levels, along with the exclusion of many carbohydrates.

It Saves Money – Now you may be thinking meat and fresh produce are expensive, and sometimes they are, but if you shop smartly you overall food costs will level out or decrease. Think about how much money you will save cutting out certain foods, there’s no need for potato chips, candy, soda, bread etc.

Not only will it save you money in the grocery store, but also on health care. As the saying goes an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of the cure.

These are just a few of the the reasons the Paleo diet can benefit you.

[]Chapter 2 – The Science Behind Paleo

It has long been known that a healthy digestive tract is very important to overall good health. Ayurveda, a ancient medicine system that developed in India more than 3000 years ago is based on this concept. Vedic literature teaches that most diseases develop from within the digestive system, and that selecting the right foods to consume is very important to good health.

The digestive systems in different animals vary by quite a bit. Herbivores who strictly consume plant material have a far more complex digestive system than carnivores. Herbivores have multiple stomachs to perform different steps of the long digestive process. A lot of work goes into collecting and processing plant material into useable energy, which is why herbivores typically do little more than eat and sleep. They have to take in a lot of plant material which is then only half digested before being eliminated, that is why their fecal matter typically has a lot of plant material still present and they typically have multiple eliminations per day.

The digestive system of a carnivore is far simpler then that of a herbivore. Carnivores have one stomach and the digestive process is far more efficient at extracting nutrients and breaking down the proteins and fat into usable energy. The fecal matter of carnivores is far more dense, and has less odor than that of a herbivore. A properly fed carnivore will only need to eliminate fecal waste about once a day.

Now in comparison the Human digestive tract is far more similar to that of a carnivore. We are lucky to have a very versatile digestive system that is able to process pretty much anything that we feed it, which means that dietary options are endless. Natives up North in Alaska and northern Canada are able to survive on little more than meat and fat, since vegetation is quite sparse. Alternatively those who choose to do so can live entirely free of meat or animal products. There is a reason that vegans tend to look sickly and often have health complications.

Just because the body is able to derive energy from different materials does not change the fact that the human body is built to be a meat eater. The digestive system points to this conclusion, as do the incisor teeth that we all have.

Carnivores primarily consume meat, which simply means that animal protein is a very important staple of the human diet. Fruits and vegetables are a great addition to derive certain nutrients, vitamins, minerals, sugars and carbs, but they are not nearly as important as the protein.

The optimal human diet consists of mainly protein, fat and sugars. The protein repairs muscle tissue, the fat provide muscular energy and the sugars keep various systems healthy and active. No matter what food you put into the digestive system, they are all broken down into those tree components.

The paleo diet provides the dietary boundaries of which humans are naturally supposed to stay within. Again, we can process nearly anything and still derive nutrients and energy from it, but certain foods simply work better.

Chapter 3 – The Paleo Plan

Choosing to go adopt the paleolithic diet is not easy. It can be downright difficult at times to stick to the plan. You may even catch yourself reaching for something you shouldn’t or taking a bite of something only to realize that it doesn’t adhere to the Paleo plan.

The worst thing to do is to go cold turkey, making drastic changes will make the process difficult and somewhat grueling at times. All good diets can be gradually introduced to make it much easier on both the body and mind.

The first step may be just to eliminate junk food, so no potato chips, no candy bars, soda etc. Keep in mind you should not punish yourself for a slip up every once in awhile, it happens to us all. Once you have adapted to the first change, make another one, the second step may be to eliminate bread.

Build the diet around your body, if you have a dairy sensitivity make dairy one of the first things you cut out, or wheat if you are sensitive to gluten. By eliminating the foods that negatively affect your body first, you can start to see the changes firsthand and really get a good idea of how your body actually functions without certain types of food that may carry a negative impact.

Unless there is a underlying medical reason to make drastic dietary changes for fear of your health, it can all be done in time. There are different degrees of dieting as well, so don’t believe that it must be all or nothing.

The Paleo diet is fit to meet the dietary needs of Humans, with that being said all people are not alike. Nothing is written in stone and if anything can be taken away from the Paleo diet, it is the basic concept. Whether critics want to admit it or not, the logic behind it the stone age diet is sound.

While it may look good on paper, you will never know unless you experience the changes with your own body. Health is important and sometimes we take it for granted, it is one of those things that you don’t miss until it is gone. Taking those steps to make positive changes, and enforce healthy habits early on will drastically improve your health and overall wellness in the later years.

The Paleo diet is not a solution to all health problems, but it can resolve a few of them. If you feel the occasional headache, bout of lethargy or indigestion in the beginning phases of a new diet or cleanse, don’t freak out, it is most likely just a symptom of your body naturally detoxing. If you encounter any persistent problems it is a good idea to consult a Doctor and inform them of any large dietary chances you have made.

The Recipes included in this ebook adhere to mainstream Paleo dietary restrictions. The recipes are all fairly simple and make wonderful meals that are easy to prepare ahead of time.

For someone that is looking to turn Paleo, this is a great place to start. Every recipe is tasty, substitutions have not been made left and right to adhere to paleo rules, they have been crafted by and for Paleo dieters.

Planning ahead makes all the difference when it comes to dieting, so consider designating a night every week to cook a Paleo meal at home. That way you can get accustomed to specialty ingredients that Paleos use, and start the shift towards healthier living.

Conclusion

Hopefully with the information found in this ebook you are compelled to try going Paleo. Changing your diet is one of the easiest ways to improve your overall health. With the high protein content and nutrient rich foods, the body is far better equipped to maintain a healthy body.

If weight loss is the goal, unfortunately you may have to do more than just changing your diet. The ultimate formula for weight loss is to burn more energy than you put in, so losing more calories than you gain. With this method the body will start burning fat to meet the energy demand, and thus you have weight loss. Combined with light meals high in proteins, fruits and vegetables, the process will go by much faster and easier.

The Paleo “Fad” is often paired with Cross-fit training for exercise, which is the short term for High Intensity Interval Training. If you have never tried Cross-fit, you should do it just for the experience, it is a hardcore, fast pace, and downright difficult workout. Being in the group dynamic and having a trainer help push you to the limit only makes it better. With all the attention that these “Fads” see, there is good reason for them, and that is why they are so popular.

With any fitness goals it is important to write them down and have something to stare at everyday. Whether it is adhere to the paleo diet for a month, or to lose 10 pounds, make a pledge to yourself. Tell you family and friends so that you have something to prove and be accountable for, if you keep your goals to yourself they are far easier to give up on. The people that care about you may just push you the extra mile and help you achieve your goal.

Make sure that your goals are specific, saying “I want to be healthier” is not specific enough. Saying “I want to lose 20 pounds in the next four months” is specific and measurable. If being healthy was easy we would all do it, but it isn’t, it takes a lot of work and dedication.

These days people have so many avenues of entertainment and pleasure, why would they ever want to waste their time being out of breath, sore and hungry? The answer is to enhance the experience, everything is better when you are in top shape, after you have worked out and are tired and hungry, the food tastes better, the bed is feels softer, and you sleep like a baby.

If you have the mental and physical stamina to push your body to the limit and improve your overall health, you can do anything. Even if we are uncomfortable with our bodies, most people are comfortable being uncomfortable because they lack the strength to make changes.

Improving your diet and increasing your fitness level will amplify everything else in life, and if you don’t believe it, than try to prove me wrong.

Thank you for reading and I hope you have gained some valuable knowledge throughout this ebook that can help to improve your overall quality of life.
