Paleo: It's a "no grainer"

The main rule of the Paleo Diet is simple: If a caveman couldn't eat it, neither can you. The diet restricts all processed foods, beans potatoes or milk and emphasizes lean proteins, fruits, veggies and healthy fats.

Lean proteins help to build muscle, healthy bones and optimal immune functions and can be found in more than just meat. Fruits and vegetables provide the body with nutrients, vitamins, and antioxidants. Healthy fats, such as nuts, seeds, and avocados, have many healthy benefits related to prevention of disease.

The best part about eating paleo is that you are removing foods that are at odds with your body (grains, legumes, dairy) and increasing the intake of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. You know you’ll be feeling good and looking good once you cut out those foods that don’t belong. Plus other benefits include more efficient workouts, burning off stored fat, more stable blood sugar, reduced allergies, balanced energy, clear skin, better teeth, and improved sleep!
