Looking for a fast, simple, and – yes – relatively “easy” way to get rid of ugly flab, burn body fat efficiently, boost your energy levels, and feel about 100 times better than you normally do? Obviously regular exercise is vital, but even more important is clean eating. And one of the best clean eating methods is the paleolithic diet — aka the “caveman diet” — a science-based diet based around eating the natural, unprocessed, unrefined foods our bodies thrive on.
On a paleo diet you get nearly 100% of your calories from animals, plants, and simple oils/fats — i.e. all-natural proteins, good carbs, and healthy fats. You avoid refined sugars, processed flours, grains in general, artificial ingredients, legumes, dairy, certain oils, and a few other things. — i.e. bad carbs and foods our bodies aren’t really optimized for.
Getting started with paleo isn’t nearly as complicated as most other dieting systems. Below you’ll find 3 of the best “paleo basics” videos online. We’ll be posting quite a bit more about this ultra-powerful eating strategy soon… so stay tuned!
