    If you can’t hunt it, if you can’t find it, then you can’t eat it. This popular way of eating known as The Paleo Diet has people everywhere ditching refined sugar, dairy, grains and legumes in favor for meat, fish, poultry, fruits, and veggies. The theory being that our carb obsessed and over processed diets could use a blast from the past in order to bring our healthy back. So, if you are down to take your diet way back into time know this: While you may develop a healthier, fitter, disease-free life you may also be missing out on the various nutrients only found in dairy and grains.

    Also, in addition to this you may overdose on meat if you are not careful about making lean choices. I say ease in and see how it goes. Or maybe add a few “Paleo Meals” to your diet to start. However, no doubt, you will have a lower sodium diet by ditching those processed foods, so that I say, be a part-time cavewoman in regard to this sis!

    Dine Like A Cavewoman

    Ever imagined what it would be like to eat and move like a Flintstone? Then this Paleo Diet trend may be for you. Also known as a Caveman, Stone Age, or Warrior way of life, this plan dating back 10,000 years ago may be just what some of us need in order to get back to our healthy roots. But just like any other trend there may be risks involved, and not all trends are worth adopting. So keep reading to see if you are really down to be primitive and proud.

    Have A Wild Sweat

    Wondering “where the wild things are?” In the gym apparently. Fitness regimens that mimic natural and animalistic movements are popping up everywhere which is why I had to read and try this hot new book called “Paleo Fitness.” Using the acronym “Primality,” the principles of Paleo Fitness are:

    P- Practical & Playful Movement

    As in don’t just work out—play out.

    R- Restorative Movement

    Movements that regenerate, reinvigorate and restore your body.

    I- Instinctive Movement

    Universal movement such as walking, running, pulling, jumping, balancing etc.

    M- Mindful Movement

    Movement where your mind body connection is fully engaged and active.

    A- Adaptive Movement

    The ability to shift among challenges, intensity and disciplines with ease.

    L- Life-Enhancing Movement

    One thought on “Primitive & Proud: 3 Things You Need To Know About The Paleo Diet Trend

    1. In recent years, the “paleo diet,” a diet based on the perceived eating habits of prehistoric people has become wildly popular. But, says paleontologist Christina Warinner, this diet is based on an incorrect view of how early humans lived. Using modern day research, Warinner traces the roots of the human diet to discover what we can really learn from the food of our ancestors. http://tedxtalks.ted.com/video/Debunking-the-Paleo-Diet-Christ

      Science Debunks the Paleo Diet—Again

      The Paleo Diet Is Uncivilized (And Unhealthy and Untrue).

      If the Paleo Diet fad is so healthy and responsible for brain growth, then why didn’t the Neanderthals survive and thrive? They had 300,000 years in Europe following the diet to make themselves into “Einsteins!” Speaking of Albert Einstein, this is what he had to say on the subject of health and survival: “Nothing will benefit human health and increase the chances for survival of life on earth as much as the evolution to a vegetarian diet.” http://www.veganfitness.net/viewtopic.php?t=723 & http://nutritionfacts.org/.

      You get better results with a vegan lifestyle, without the high risks of cancer and heart disease, which most cavemen didn’t live long enough to experience. It’s eliminating processed foods and eating veggies that make you healthy!

      “Tens of millions of people are enjoying long, healthy, vegan lifestyles today and these numbers dwarf the total number of paleolithic people ever born.”
