Living The Paleo Way 6
We live in a world that is filled with hype, slick marketing, misleading ads, fads, crazes and short term fixes.
It’s easy and even understandable when people feel like the paleo diet could be just another short term trend.
However, they would be mistaken in this case because the paleo diet is everything it claims to be.
It will improve your health, leave you looking leaner, fitter and can ultimately change your life for the better.
As we know this particular eating plan recommends only eating wholesome foods and avoiding foods that aren’t good for you.
For example, the paleo diet recommends eating wild caught salmon which is rich in omega-3 fatty acids and extremely beneficial.
With all the prepackaged and processed food the current American diet is short on omega-3 acids and high in omega-6 acids.
Consuming food rich in Omega-3 acids like salmon is a big part of the paleo lifestyle because they contain anti-inflammatory properties which are important for good health and help eliminate aches and pains associated with food allergies.
We also know that this diet doesn’t allow the consumption of sugar and grains which often eliminates a man of our favorite comfort foods like cereals, breads, pasta, pizza, cakes, and chocolates and while the thought of eliminating these foods may seem like a big sacrifice once you do you will notice that your blood sugar levels will become more stable which will make you feel better and maintain good energy levels throughout your daily activities.
- You may be asking yourself why this is important.
When your blood sugar levels spike, your body releases insulin. Over time the body loses insulin sensitivity and this results in increased fat storage.
The moment you consume a bowl of sugary cereal in the morning, your blood sugar shoots up and insulin is released and you will feel great until a little later when you will have a sugar crash and end up feeling lethargic.
Why do you think people often feel sleepy after a heavy lunch? This is the reason.
A steady paleo diet will help keep your blood sugar levels stable.
Because of this, you won’t gain weight as easily. Furthermore, by eliminating a most unhealthy carbs, you will naturally lose any excess weight you’re carrying provided you aren’t consuming too many daily calories.
This is especially good for people suffering from diabetes because it’s much easier to keep a steady blood glucose level.
Because the diet involves consuming a fair amount of protein it also ensures that you have sufficient protein for muscle building and repair. Just make sure that you balance your diet with vegetables.
One mistake many paleo dieters make is that they neglect to balance their meals. So, they often end up eating too much protein and not enough carbohydrates.
For the best results it’s important for your macronutrients to be as well balanced as possible which means consuming the correct proportion of fats, carbs and protein.
