Part 3-Which Diet Is Right For You?

Scientists believe that the average person hosts about 500 toxic chemicals in his/her body, mostly within their fat tissues. These toxins may lead to serious health conditions such as infertility, liver damage, diabetes, brain damage, cancer, or death.

Ridding yourself of toxins through a healthy detox diet, combined with the right nutrients can help you:

  1. Dramatically increase your energy
  2. Reduce chronic achy pain
  3. Boost mental clarity
  4. Lose weight (if needed)
  5. Eliminate bloating, gas and other GI symptoms
  6. Remove excess water retention (swollen hands, ankles and feet)
  7. Have glowing, healthy skin, nails and hair

Which Diet Is Right For You? – Part 3

The Paleo Diet

Unless you’ve been living in an actual cave, you’ve probably heard all about the Paleo – or “caveman” – diet. 

The Paleo diet is a nutrient-dense whole foods diet based on eating a variety of quality meat, seafood, eggs, vegetables, fruits, nuts, and seeds.  It improves health by providing balanced and complete nutrition while avoiding most processed and refined foods and empty calories.

Our oldest cousins, the earliest primates, lived more than 60 million years ago. And, just like most primates today, their diet was mainly fruit, leaves, and insects.

About 2.6 million years ago, at the dawn of the Paleolithic era, things began to change. Our early human ancestors started using stone tools and fire, and, as a result, slowly changed their diet.

By the time truly modern humans came on the scene about 50,000 years ago, our ancestors were eating an omnivorous hunter-gatherer diet.

It has gained popularity as it claims to cater to our body’s needs and emulate dietary patterns our predecessors followed, in order to be fit and healthy. With the growing awareness of the harmful effects of processed and refined foods, the Paleo diet has gained a lot of attention and is considered to be a healthier alternative.

While the Paleo diet focuses on eating whole foods, it restricts not just processed and refined foods, but also foods that became common once humans settled down and started farming, like, beans, grains, dairy products, salt, sugar, alcohol, coffee, and other such food items. This can make the Paleo diet more restrictive than most.

Foods allowed by the Paleo diet include –

  • Fruits and vegetables.
  • Lean cuts of ideally grass-fed or organically raised animals like beef, lamb, poultry, and pork, or wild game like quail, or bison.
  • Fish, especially those rich in omega-3 fatty acids, such as salmon, mackerel, trout, and albacore tuna, along with seafood like shrimps, shellfish, etc.
  • Nuts and seeds, in moderation.
  • Natural, healthy oils like olive oil, flaxseed oil, or walnut oil.
  • Sea salt and spices like garlic, thyme, turmeric, rosemary, etc.

Foods restricted by the diet include-

  • Grains like wheat, rice, oats, rye, and barley.
  • Bread, pasta, noodles, cakes, pastries, etc.
  • Legumes, which includes lentils, beans, peanuts, and peas.
  • Milk and other dairy products like cheese, butter, or yogurt.
  • Refined sugar, honey, or other sweets.
  • Refined salt.
  • Added sugar in foods and drinks, or artificial sweeteners.
  • Potatoes and Starchy vegetables.
  • Food items containing trans fats, and certain vegetable oils like sunflower oil, soybean oil, grapeseed oil, safflower oil, and others.
  • Highly processed and junk foods; processed and cured meats like deli meats, bacon, and hot dogs.

Some of the health benefits of the Paleo diet are listed below:

  1. Weight loss

The inclusion of whole foods and restriction of processed foods, sugar, and unhealthy fats in the Paleo diet can support weight loss and reduction in body fat.

Studies have shown that the Paleo diet could positively affect fat mass, waist circumference, and triglyceride levels in postmenopausal women with obesity. Another study found that a Paleo diet could help healthy women lose more weight, as compared to regular low-fat diets.


  1. Diabetes Management and Heart Health

People with type 2 diabetes are often likely to develop cardiovascular diseases and are more likely to die of it as well, compared to those without diabetes. Preliminary research has shown that Paleo diets could help manage and improve both these conditions.

Studies have shown that following the Paleo diet can improve glucose tolerance, attenuate the secretion of insulin, leading to better insulin sensitivity, and reduce the levels of cholesterol, low-density lipoproteins (LDL), and triglycerides.

A similar study involving individuals with type 2 diabetes found that those who consumed a Paleo diet, achieved better regulation of glucose levels, and improved lipid profiles and insulin sensitivity, than those who consumed a conventional diet allowing salt, low-fat dairy, whole grains, and legumes .

Yet another study showed that a Paleo diet could help people with type 2 diabetes reduce body fat, increase insulin sensitivity, and improve glycemic control and leptin levels, leading to greater metabolic balance, without any exercise. Moreover, male participants who supplemented the Paleo diet with exercise, reported improved heart health and preserved lean muscle mass as well .

 

A study reported that the Paleo diet could lead to enhanced improvement in various aspects of the metabolic syndrome in the short term, compared to guideline-based control diets. The study found that for people with metabolic syndrome, following the Paleo diet resulted in improvements in blood pressure and fasting blood sugar levels, waist circumference, and triglyceride levels.

Being rich in anti-inflammatory, and low carbohydrate and low GI foods like a variety of fruits, vegetables, unsaturated fats, and healthy oils, especially those containing omega-3 fatty acids, the Paleo diet could also protect from inflammation and chronic health conditions, and improve overall health and wellbeing.


My Experience

I’ve been on and recommended the Paleo diet or some form of this diet for years. I believe it offers an easy to follow roadmap for eating a healthy wholefoods diet. In fact, any diet that dramatically reducing or eliminating simple carbs and starches, processed foods, additives, and empty calories (soft drinks), like the Paleo diet will provide huge ongoing health benefits.

Do You Have Bloating, Gas, Reflux, Heartburn, Constipation, Loose Bowel Movements Or Gastro Symptoms?

Studies show that, every ten years, your body’s production of enzymes decreases by 13 percent. So by age 40, your enzyme production could be 25 percent lower than it was when you were a child. By the time you’re 70, you could be producing a mere one-third of the enzymes you need.

To ensure you’re getting the nutrients you need for optimal cellular health I recommend eating a healthy diet and taking a digestive enzyme with each meal.
