Paleo diet also called “Caveman Diet” is a dietary plan that evolved decades ago which includes lean meats, fish, fruits, vegetables, nuts, and seeds. You need to avoid wheat, oats, beans, salt, potatoes, processed foods, and dairy products.
The primary difference between the paleo diet and other healthy diets is the absence of whole grains and legumes, which are considered good sources of fiber, vitamins and other nutrients. Also, absent from the diet are dairy products, which are good sources of protein and calcium.
These foods not only are considered healthy but also are generally more affordable and accessible than such foods as wild game, grass-fed animals and nuts. For some people, a paleo diet may be too expensive.
Pros and Cons of Paleo Diet:
- Anti-inflammatory benefits
- Effective lose weight
- No grains and dairy
- Foods are fewer carbs
Is it for you or not?
- It is for you if you can stand eating fruits and veggies as your main course.
- It is not for you if you are an athlete who needs body weight.
Any diet you choose has potential risks and benefits to your body. A good discipline, exercise and eating balanced are the most valuable thing to attain good health. Always consult your doctor for advice to avoid a possible negative effect to your body.
