What is The Paleo Diet?

The Paleo Diet

The Paleo diet is eating whole, natural foods which are full of vitamins and minerals. Sure, there’s a bit more to the Paleo diet, but that’s it summed up in one easy-to-remember thought. Write that down and take it with you so you can share with your friends.

One thing you must know is this. When we refer to the Paleo “diet” it means a way of eating for the long-term. It is not a two week fad diet, it is not a quick weight loss scam, and it is not a Hollywood diet. The Paleo diet is a way of eating for a lifetime.

The Paleo diet is the only diet that does the work for you. When you eat a Paleo diet you effortlessly and naturally become stronger, thinner, and healthier.

What’s up with the weird name Paleo?

Paleo is a shortened version of Paleolithic which means, according to Mr. Webster, “of or relating to the earliest period of the Stone Age characterized by rough or chipped stone implements”. What does that have to do with diet? Well, let me explain. You don’t want to miss this.

Think of the foods that were available to the people during the Stone Age. All of the available foods were organic, high quality, and natural. The fruits and vegetables weren’t sprayed with toxins to pass inspections. The animals they hunted and ate weren’t force-fed fake food to get them fat. Those animals ate their natural diet of grass, shrubs, etc.

A Paleo Diet Quiz

Can I ask you a question? If you sat a plate of vegetables and cooked, lean meat in front a caveman, would they eat it? Or, would they grab a microwave packaged meal of cheese covered pasta to heat and eat? It’s okay, you can come up with as many excuses as you can think of to defend the microwave meal, but we both know the correct answer.

So that’s the thought behind this Paleo diet stuff. Eat foods that are whole, natural and full of vitamins and minerals because those were the only foods available during that period of time.

We model our diet after the Paleolithic people.

The Paleo diet is a way of eating for lifetime which in return extends your lifetime.

Sure there is more to the Paleo diet than what’s above, and I’ll explain more in posts, and my upcoming ebook. If you’re interested in learning about the Paleo diet and how it helps you achieve Uncommon Wellness, click here.
