Steps for an Easy Transition into Paleo
Human beings have been eating for more than 2 million years but the advent of agriculture
started only about 10,000 years ago. It's the Agricultural Revolution which happened in the
Neolithic Era introduced human beings to some of the high starchy foods such as rice, wheat,
pasta, breads and other foods that are heavily processed into our diet. The wide spread claim of
many paleo nutritionists is that individuals can restore their energy levels, health and also their
waist lines by adapting and consuming the foods which we are used to since our inception.
Many people have experienced startling changes since they have adapted to the Noan dieti
plans. The basic premise of the paleo dieting is to consume foods that are raw or processed in a
very minimal manner, this helps in the better absorption of nutrition into our body.
Adapting to the paleo dieting pattern from consuming our modern day food can be done by
following the steps described below:
Increasing the consumption of meat - Paleo diet plans always insist on increasing the amount of
protein intake, it also stresses on the quality of the protein. Good Quality protein can be
obtained from grass fed and pasture raised meat or from wildly caught fish and meat from the
Reducing the Carbohydrate Intake - There is a major misconception about the increased
consumption of complex carbohydrates is essential as they are the energy producers for our
body. Increased consumption of carbohydrates causes the fat to be stored and accumulated in
our body. Our system is designed in such a way that fat has to be used for doing various kinds
of activities, but consuming carbohydrates causes a hindrance in this process.
Avoiding Processed Foods and increasing the Good Fat Intake - Identifying and eating good fats
which are helpful in maintaining the health of our body is one of the key aspects in Paleo
dieting. Eating real and healthy foods also helps in avoiding the craving for junk foods which are
the main contributors of unhealthy fats. Eat good fats which can be obtained from natural oils
such as coconut, flax seed oil, avocados, hemp etc.
Supplement when necessary - No diet is completely perfect and packed with nutrients unless
we eat the right amount of food which supplies the key vitamins and minerals. Taking
supplements for Vitamin D, Omega - 3 and Vitamin B-12 (especially for vegetarians who are
trying to follow paleo diet) helps to maintain the required balance and meet the daily dieting
requirements of these vitamins.
Exercise - The complete benefit of any diet cannot be fully achieved without doing the required
physical activity to burn the energy before replenishing them with healthy diet.
Optimization - Optimizing your diet according to your likes and dislikes is essential in order to
achieve long term success and benefits of paleo. Individuals who are following a complete
paleo diet will witness tremendous increase in energy and their overall health and life style.
