Physician Recommended Diet: The Paleo Diet


Published January 4, 2016

Doctor-Recommended--The-Paleo-DietTo explain it simply, the Paleo diet is defined as an eating plan that focuses on whole, unprocessed foods, good fats, and a lifestyle that supports your wellbeing. The menu is based on foods that were believed to be eaten by humans living in the Paleolithic era, hence the diet’s name. The diet consists mainly of protein, vegetables, fruits, nuts and seeds.

If you’re looking to lose weight and stay fit, you will find that this lifestyle plan is one of the healthiest ways you can eat because it helps you achieve a lean, strong body and improve energy. Avoiding the typical Western diet, which is full of refined foods loaded with harmful ingredients, will also reduce risk of diseases such as obesity, cancer, diabetes, heart disease, and Alzheimer’s.

Paleo for Weight Loss

Because the Paleo diet eliminates all dairy and grain products, most people see an immediate and often dramatic weight loss. Humans were not designed to digest the plethora of sugary junk and processed foods in the current food supply. By eliminating such foods, your body can better access stored fat and use it as fuel for energy.

Although certain food categories are eliminated, the main focus of the Paleo diet is consuming nutrient-dense foods for the greatest nutritional benefit. By eating an amazing variety of protein-rich animal foods, such as organ meats, bone broth and seafood, along with plant foods in every color of the rainbow, you get all the minerals and essential elements your body needs to function at an optimal level. At the same time, your palate will be fully satisfied with the variety of delicious meals. By focusing on foods that cover the full nutrient spectrum, you eliminate any cravings initiated by nutrient deficiencies―which just might eliminate one of the greatest obstacles to meeting your weight loss goals.

Paleo Lowers Inflammation

Without even knowing it, you may be walking around with some type of internal inflammation. It can show up as chronic joint pain, irritable bowel syndrome, gas, and a variety of other digestive and bodily issues. When inflammation continues for long periods of time, it can cause your hunger levels to rise and impair carbohydrate metabolism. This, of course, can lead to overeating and those extra calories being stored as fat.

A low-carb Paleo diet is one of the best things you can do to reduce inflammation and repair a broken metabolism. Other tips to reduce inflammation include:
