Primal Living – The Paleo Diet and Paleo Food

Share this to the world!

It’s certainly true to say that whenever people think about primal living – the concept of eating and exercising as close to nature as possible in the same way as our ancestors did – the idea of paleo diet foods immediately springs to mind. Whilst that is an over simplification of the concept of primal living, it’s certainly fair to say Paleo food plays a big role in primal living.  If you would like more information on primal living and Paleo diet food, take a look at for helpful tips and information.

The Paleo Diet
It’s probably worth taking a look at what a Paleo diet is, and how it fits into the primal living ethos well.  The Paleo diet is based on the principle that, if our ancestor the caveman couldn’t eat it, neither should you.  Indeed, the Paleo diet is often nicknamed the Caveman Diet!

Definition
That means that the foods you can eat must be something you can hunt, forage or gather.  Definitely no processed food or grains or sugars.  Meat, fish, nuts, greens, vegetables and seeds are all OK as we can hunt, forage for or grow them. And one of the great things about the Paleo diet is, if strictly followed, there is no need to ever have to calorie count again.

Then vs Now
If you need convincing about the diet of our ancestors, just picture the average caveman (tall, muscular, athletic, agile and versatile) and the average person now (overweight, stressed, tired and dying of a multitude of preventable diseases).  That should be evidence enough of the benefits of a Paleo diet.

Grains
The fundamental problem of the modern man is the influence of agriculture on our diet. As the agricultural revolution has continued, so has our ever-increasing dependence on bread, past, rice and corn and so on.  When we should be refuelling on meat, vegetables and fruit, we are instead following what we believe are the right rules by having the recommended 6-11 servings of grains a day, and we are becoming fatter and unhealthier by the day as a result.  2/3rds of us are overweight, with 1/3rd of us being classified as obese!  The problem with grains is our bodies converts the carbohydrates in grains into glucose to provide us the energy we need. Whatever glucose we don’t need for energy is turned into fat.  So, as our lifestyles have become less active, we need less energy so more of the carbs are being turned into fat.

Trend
As the above shows, our modern diet is helping us become more unhealthy and overweight.  If we want to reverse this trend, we need look no further than our ancestors to see what food we should be consuming.

    I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own blog and was curious what all is required to get setup? I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny? I’m not very web smart so I’m not 100% certain. Any recommendations or advice would be greatly appreciated. Appreciate it
