The Paleo diet is the easiest, healthiest, and most delicious way to eat.
But when it comes to diet, people make excuses why they can’t switch to a Paleo diet. They say it would be too hard switching from their current diet. They complain their family won’t do it. They declare organic foods too expensive. Excuses run amok.
Let’s crush the top 5 ugly lies about the Paleo diet.
It’s a far from a low-carb fad diet. The Paleo diet is a low, high-glycemic processed carbohydrate diet. You do strip out the transformed foods and all the sugar that is jammed into processed foods. The Paleo diet encourages you to eat a large variety of fruits and vegetables, both of which are carbohydrates.
As for being a fad diet, I’m sure all the humans up until the agriculture era would beg to differ. It’s the same diet humans survived on until the agriculture era. I guess the Paleo diet could be renamed to the Human Survival Diet.
The Paleo Diet is the easiest diet to follow. There’s no guess work. I’m happily married with three children, and I work full time. I need an easy, no fuss, get-me-the-results-yesterday diet. In the past, I ate a Zone diet and even had my family eating in the Zone, but it was hard to feed an entire family their specified Zone diet blocks. I don’t want to do the math each time my wife and I prepare a meal for our family.
Eating a Paleo diet has removed all the guesswork, eyeballing, and I know I’m giving my family the most nutritious foods. And that feels good.
Buying high quality and organic foods is a little more expensive than buying mass produced foods, but think about his for a minute. Would you rather pay a few cents more now, or pay with your health later? Think about it.
When I changed to a Paleo diet my hunger levels dropped. I found myself intermittent fasting without feeling hungry. I went without the oh-my-god-I-can’t-miss-a-meal mind cramps that come with most diets.
One of the best elements of the Paleo diet is eating whenever you’re hungry. And you get away with it because you’re eating nutritious foods your body requires for energy.
Not a chance. No way. No how. The Paleo diet strips body fat. I had been CrossFitting since 2008 before I moved to a Paleo diet, and when I did, people noticed changes in my body within two weeks. It definitely takes the “look good naked” concept to the next level. And it was easy.
So there you have it, 5 ugly lies about the Paleo diet debunked. What are you waiting for? Go Paleo!
