The Paleolithic diet requires you to give up “modern” food such as junk food and fast food, as well as ready-to-cook and other non-natural foods. Sometimes to lose weight you have just to avoid ‘unhealthy’ food and to eat like our ancestors.

 

ABOUT THE PALEO DIET

This diet suggests eating meat because it’s more filling than fruit and vegetables, and its digestion takes much more time, so you will not be hungry all the time. This diet includes 3 meals per day every 5 hours. You can eat low-calorie vegetables between the meals.

So, what do you need to eat? Important foods of the Paleo diet:

  • Poultry and low-fat meat
  • Seafood and wild fish
  • Mushrooms
  • Nuts
  • Eggs (up to 2 yolks per day)
  • Nuts and seeds (not fried)
  • Coconut and almond flour (as well as milk)
  • Spices and vegetable oils
  • Natural non-starchy fruit and berry
  • Herbal tea
  • Plain water
  • Raw honey

Avoid eating the following:

  • Fatback, bacon and ready-to-cook foods
  • Fast food
  • Bread, pastry, and cakes
  • Peanut and beans
  • Dairy products
  • All kinds of sweets and salty food
  • A lot of tea and coffee

PROS AND CONS

Advantages of this diet include the following:

  • Normalising blood sugar
  • Lowering cholesterol level
  • Your body is always provided with the necessary amount of protein (advantage for athletes)
  • This balanced diet ensures easy weight loss

Drawbacks of the Paleo diet:

  • Small amount of carbs in the daily diet (it may cause weakness)
  • Low-calorie food (people leading an active life should eat more fruit rich in carbohydrates such as bananas, cherries, and pineapples)
  • This diet is unsuitable for vegetarians

 

WHAT TO EAT EVERY DAY

You Paleo menu can be as follows:

FOR A DAY
BREAKFAST Slices of low-fat ham and berry mix, coffee
SNACK Low-fat jerked beef and a handful of almond (10 nuts); an apple; water
LUNCH Baked salmon (150 g); salad with greens and olive oil (1 tablespoon); melon (200 g); water
SNACK Chicken (100 g); fresh vegetables and two kiwi fruits; water
DINNER Baked low-fat meat (100 g); steamed broccoli and cauliflower (400 g); a handful of almond (15 nuts); water

While on the Paleo diet, try to reduce serving size as much as possible and eat only when you are hungry. It is also important to have an active lifestyle, to do some exercises in the morning and to take go for hikes. Remember that you should move more and eat less while dieting.
