The 7 amazing things you’ll experience with the paleo diet
1Burn fat and keep it off.
Need to lose some weight? Many people have seen amazing changes in their body fat composition after switching to a paleo lifestyle. All while eating foods you love! You don’t have to starve yourself on tiny salads that leave you unsatisfied. A lot of people tell us they feel more satiated than ever before once eating healthy paleo recipes.
“I switched to eating paleo and within 4 months I had lost just over 35 pounds. Not to mention I have more energy and feel much healthier in general!”
– Matt Smith, Co-Founder of Paleovalley
2Slow down the aging process.
When you get the paleo diet right you will be adding some of the most nutrient dense, antioxidant rich foods on earth to your diet while eliminating foods that do nothing but cause inflammation and create free-radicals.
Antioxidant rich foods, which are encouraged in the paleo diet, are known to fight these free-radicals, help heal inflammation, and slow the aging process.
3Improve your digestion.
By introducing real, whole, wild foods into your diet and eliminating damaged, processed foods, your digestion will do cartwheels. Since 70-80% of your immune system is found in your gut it is vitally important to restore those sensitive little guys known as “gut flora” so you can thrive.
“I struggled with severe irritable bowel syndrome for 13 years and was resigned to living in pain every day. After switching to a paleo diet I have no symptoms at all and feel better than ever!”
– Autumn Fladmo Smith, Co-Founder of Paleovalley
When you are eating foods that your body is not meant to absorb, your body will use energy trying to digest that food and will eventually have to use mineral stores to replace the nutrients that you aren’t getting from your diet.
Eating paleo foods allows your body to get it’s fuel from high quality superfoods and the result is often a surge in energy.
5Better immune system response.
As we said earlier, 70-80% of your immune system is found in your gut. The paleo diet will help to heal your internal systems and as a result your immune system will get jumpstarted back to life!
Many people, after eating paleo, notice that they are sick much less frequently and are able to fight off illnesses much more quickly thanks to their paleo-charged immune system.
Inflammation is highly regarded as the root cause of almost every degenerative disease. With the paleo diet the emphasis on removing highly inflammatory foods and oils is just one factor in radically reducing inflammation. The inclusion of nutrient dense foods and the restoration of the proper ratio of Omega 3 to Omega 6 fatty acids in your body, both assist in the healing of inflammation while removing the main cause of it in the first place. You win twice!
7Better cognitive function.
Ok, so you may not become a rocket scientist by eating a paleo diet but it may just get you one step closer! Many chemicals, toxic substances, and even common food allergies in today’s standard diet have been shown to decrease mood and brain activity. The paleo diet removes these “brain fog” inducing substances and replaces them with the healthy fats and phytonutrient rich foods your brain needs to function at it’s highest level.
