The Paleo Diet is about getting back to basics and focusing on foods that have been compatible with human metabolism over thousands of years of evolution. These primarily include vegetables, fermented foods, and most forms of protein, fruits and beneficial fats.
It excludes most forms of grain carbohydrates and significantly reduces legumes and dairy products. This hunter-gatherer's diet is probably more suited to our current metabolism compared to the highly refined processed diets of recent agricultural and industrial societies, which has only existed for less than a 100 years.
Recently introduced intensively farmed and processed foods, apart from being relatively new and challenging to our digestive tract, have also been found to be our most allergenic foods. They are the foods most likely to provoke excessive insulin production, which has been implicated in obesity, hormonal imbalance and inflammation, which is now thought to be a major underlying factor in heart disease, degenerative diseases and cancer.
Grains and their derivatives can also affect absorption of food vitamins and minerals leading to nutrient deficiencies .The paleo diet can help in a variety of common medical problems including obesity, diabetes, fatigue, hormone imbalance, auto-immune disorders, gut disorders, food allergies, cancer prevention and many others.
The Diet reduces our reliance on carbohydrate as a primary fuel source and helps us to switch more to ingested and stored fat as a preferred fuel giving us more sustained and balanced energy. As a result, there can be carbohydrate withdrawal symptoms with cravings in the first few weeks. Be patient as these symptoms will diminish as fat metabolism kicks in.
The Paleo Diet is beneficial for many chronic medical conditions that have been associated with excessive insulin production and resultant increased inflammatory visceral fat such as:
Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome
Acne and Acne Rosacea
Reflux and bloatedness
