Picture of 2 months into the Paleo diet vs 5 months into the paleo diet. The diet that works! There is a lot of weight loss on my hips and tummy. In this vid I basically go through my story, the weird symptoms I was getting from stress and generally feeling run down and how I got into this way of eating. I originally just started by primalizing my breakfast then a few months later I did lunch. And finally, I did snacks and dinner.
The primary basis for this diet is that you should eat as few processed foods as possible and that dairy products as a whole are out of bounds. Therefore, foods that contain butter, milk, yogurt, or any kind of dairy product at all should not be included. Another food item that is not included in most paleo diet cookbooks is cereal. Hunters and gatherers did not have farms, and therefore, there were no fields of grain for them to use as food. What this means to you is that you will not be eating corn, oats, wheat, rice, or any other kind of grain.
One of the reasons why people who are new to the paleo diet need the assistance of paleo diet cookbooks is because these are some very basic ingredients that people may not be used to cooking with. Imagine cooking an entire meal without the use of dairy products, grains, legumes, or starchy vegetables. Then, you will find out that you also can’t have fatty meats, fruit juices, or any kind of candy or sugar. This makes it a little difficult to come up with meals.
Paleo diet cookbooks are actually able to provide you with an abundance of meals that you and your family will enjoy, all of which will contribute to a much healthier lifestyle for all of you. When you eat meals from paleo diet cookbooks, you will not only lose weight, but there are a number of other hidden benefits that you might not know about.
For instance, many people who stick to a paleo diet on a long-term basis find that their sex drive increases, they have clearer and smoother skin, and they have better performance and recovery during athletic pursuits. Your immune system will also increase in strength when you are on this kind of a diet and your overall energy will be unlike anything you have ever had before.
All in all, this is the ideal diet for just about everyone, but it goes without saying that you will need good recipes to help you through and that is where a quality cookbook can really help you out.
