Los Angeles, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 01/21/2014 -- A new year brings new resolutions and goals, many revolving around diet, exercise, and general wellbeing. A popular choice for a diet change this year is a switch to what is referred to as the Paleo Diet. The concept is simple: elimination of refined sugars, processed foods, and wheat products in exchange for lean meats, vegetables, and only the foods our ancestors would have had available to them. The diet is reported to be a “back to basics” approach to healthy living, and fans of the method rave about the numerous health benefits they receive after getting back to their roots.
Advances in food production and dietary medicine have brought convenience into the lives of many Americans. But with these advances there have also been developments in disease. Eliminating the processed foods and following the Paleo diet is reported to reduce risk and eliminate these health conditions. And it makes sense; studies on modern day hunter gatherer cultures show they have healthier bodies and are more physically fit than most of the population. While this could be attributed to the amount of physical activity they receive, it’s worth noting that when modern dietary practices were introduced these cultures began to develop chronic, inflammatory diseases that plague our current populace.
Another benefit of the Paleo Diet is better nutrient consumption. Information gleamed in the studies above along with biochemical evidence regarding nutrients supports that consumption of lean meats, whole grains, vegetables and fruits in their raw form versus the processed versions we often consume provides better calories for the body than processed versions of the same foods. The reason for this is the nutrient density found in the diet. If the body does not receive optimal intake of all 40 required nutrients for daily function, our physicality suffers and it can lead to disease and shortened lifespan.
Many claim that the diet is had to adapt to their lifestyles, and though this may be true, with enough effort and conscious shopping practices engaging in the Paleo diet is often as simple as making sure the food one buys is whole and unprocessed. There are numerous books, articles, and trainers who can assist with getting started in a Paleo lifestyle. Those looking for a change in the New Year should try going back to our roots with the Paleo Diet for new beginnings all around.
