The Paleo Diet

The Paleo diet is a relatively newer diet that is currently raising interest in many people, and rightly so. I have heard some talk about sisters wanting try the Paleo diet so I thought I would post about it for all to see.

The main idea of the Paleo diet is to only eat foods that the hunters and gatherers would have eaten. This means no processed foods, sweets, grains, dairy, etc, which may lead you to wonder why  you would ever give up all those foods. Well, the results are in and the Paleo diet has several health benefits, including better digestive health, the reduced risk of disease, and the shrinkage of fat cells to name a few.

If you are interested in learning more about the Paleo diet, take a look at the following 2 diagrams (click on pictures to enlarge or use the link below) and the link that discusses the health benefits. If you feel comfortable doing so, comment on this post if you are currently on the Paleo diet or wish to be so that sisters can work together!
