Paleo Diet: What Can You Eat

642x361-processed_foods_to_avoidHow do you plan your daily meal plan? Picking the foods to eat is an essential part of your diet. If you look back, you will realize that it is this step that has made you gain so much weight. Because some people choose to eat what they want to eat, instead of what their body needs, they end up gaining so much weight their body could not make good use of. Are you guilty of eating what you want instead of what you need to survive?
Don’t feel all too guilty about it. After all, you still got a chance with the paleo diet. Don’t be surprised when you read about the basic principle behind the Paleo, because it is nothing like the other diet plans you’ve tried. You might be used to being told what NOT to eat and that list is indeed long. It even includes almost everything you want to eat. That’s the very reason why most diet programs can be very frustrating, but not the Paleo.
When you have a clear understanding of what the Paleo Diet is all about, you will realize that it only has a list of the foods that you should be eating. From there, you can make varying combinations and eat to your heart’s content. You can eat as much of the foods in the exclusive Paleo list until you feel full. That’s right! This is the only diet program that will allow you to eat and eat while your body learns to adjust and naturally sheds off the pounds.
The secret to the paleo diet is keeping things very simple. Your diet doesn’t have to include the complicated wonders of doughnuts or soft drinks or maybe even slices of cake. All these do harm to your dental health and your overall health in general. The complications brought about these dishes have confused you, thinking that eating them would make you full. The truth is that they only make you feel full, but they are not able to feed your body with the food that it needs to survive. So instead of absorbing nutrients, your body ends up absorbing trans fat and carbohydrates that it barely needs.
So before you brush the idea of the Paleo Diet aside, here is a list of the foods that you can eat until your heart is full:
Fish and Meat
Cavemen who survived for years are known to be meat eaters. To be able to replicate the diet that they had, you have to include fish and meat. However, instead of the usual marinade that you have, you can go for fish and meat that are organically grown.
Vegetables and Fruits
The Paleolithic man survived because of hunting and gathering their food. And if meat and fish are not available, they go back to their other staple food the vegetables and the fruits. The greens and the colorful veggies and fruits add naturally good colors in their diet.
The list of the paleo foods goes on and on. You won’t regret giving it a try.

Paleo Diet: What To Eat?

foodphoto006If you are trying to lose weight, you must have stumbled upon the Paleo Diet. You must have read a lot of people and their success stories through the Paleo Diet and so you try to look into how this type of diet can be different from the other diets you have tried (and failed). At a glance, you might think it is much like the others that promised to help you achieve your ideal weight, but when you take a closer look, you will realize that there is nothing about it that is like the others.
The Paleo diet is very simple. There is a general principle that will guide you in choosing the foods to eat and the foods to avoid eating. It is can be pretty easy to remember too – the Paleo Diet is all about going back to the basics and sticking to it. In passing, here are some foods that should be included in your Paleo Diet:
Meat (from grass-fed cattle)
Seafood (fish in particular)
Organic Vegetables and Fruits
Eggs
Seeds and Nuts
Olive Oil
The first steps to the switch to the Paleo Diet can be quite a challenge. The usual blandness of the dishes may need a little of getting used to, but when you stick to it, the benefits that you will reap will be worth the wait. Not only will you shed off pounds, but you will definitely be able to keep those pounds off. More than that, it is the self-discipline that the diet teaches you that will convince you that it is definitely a good decision to give the Paleo diet a try. It teaches you the value of the basics and why going back to the basics is the only way to get yourself back into shape.
People who have weight problems are those that indulge themselves in the dishes listed below:
Cereals
Refined sugar
Dairy products
Processed foods
Salt
Potatoes
Meat
Refined oils
Are you guilty of eating any of those foods on the list? Who isn’t? Because most of us are guilty about indulging in all these delicious treats, the Paleo Diet reminds us that eating, even a little, of any of these foods in the list could cause your health harm that will last a lifetime. Now, before you dread this diet plan and go back to your old routine that made you unhealthy and fat, here are some tips to help you squeeze the Paleo way into your regular routine without actually feeling it:
Eat a Paleo omelette for breakfast. Add a few more ingredients like mushrooms, tomatoes, and broccoli. Saute these ingredients using olive oil and voila, you’ve got your Paleo omelette.
Squeeze in a veggie and fruit salad for lunch. Soon, you will get used to the greens and you won’t be eating meat less and less.
For dinner, you can go for a pasta dish, but instead of all the meat, you can substitute it with squash and it will still taste as good. Obviously, it is a bit on the healthier side too.

Paleo Diet: What Every Beginner Should Know

healthy-woman-eating-saladThe Paleo Diet is eating like how people ate back in the day. The experience will take you back to the diet that people had and how it has helped them survive for a long, long time. When this diet plan was first introduced in the market, not a lot of people grabbed the opportunity. It was not because it wasn’t interesting, but because people have tried a lot of diet plans that have promised to help them lose weight, only to realize that it has made them hope for something they could never achieve.
Losing weight is first the foremost the reason why people are looking for an effective diet plan. However, some diet plans help people achieve their ideal weight, but as soon as they go back to how they live their lives, they gain back all the weight they lost. Unless you give the Paleo Diet a try, you can never really say that it won’t work for you. So instead of worrying of whether or not it is something that could work for you or not, it is best to simply give it a try. After all, it is the result that you should look forward to.
The Paleo Diet is inspired by how cavemen survived the world, with very little to work with. Simply, it is the diet that will make you eat anything that you can find or hunt like meat, veggies, fruits and seeds. Cereals, pasta and candies are not included in the list of what you can eat. Instead of the usual dishes that you prepare, you can instead make the Paleo Spaghetti or a stir fry chicken dish.
Do you hate counting calories too? Perhaps everyone who has got a weight issue hates counting calories. After all, it takes the joy out of eating. And yet the truth is that counting calories, even in the Paleo diet helps you understand how you can lose all the extra calories and gain only what your body needs. When you eat a bar of chocolates that is about 250 calories, the effect that it has on your body is different when you choose to eat 250 calories worth of vegetables and fruits. So you see, counting calories is about knowing what your body should be absorbing and what your body should be shedding off.
Fortunately, with the Paleo diet, you will learn which foods contain the good calories that your body needs. Your idea of what good food is about will help you remove some types of foods in your diet plan. Instead of counting calories, you will be counting the calories that only count to achieve your ideal weight and ideal health condition too. In the Paleo diet, there is no particular type of food combinations. You can eat whatever you want as long as they fall under the food categories prescribed by the Paleo diet.
There is no calorie counting too. You can eat as much as you want until you feel full. You’ll be surprised at how much weight you can lose without even trying.
