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.
