The paleo diet refers to the “caveman diet” or eating off of the land. The paleo inspired diet actually has some very beneficial attributes to the body.
Today I’m happy to share four of the most influential benefits of the paleo diet:
No Processed Foods
The paleo diet completely avoids all processed food and manufactured products. The paleo diet
completely relies on eating natural and organic foods. The Ultimate Paleo Guide gives further detail of the benefits of excluding processed foods from your diet.
Good Fats Only
Fats aren’t that bad for our bodies, if you’re eating good fats that is. Have you heard of the benefits of Omega 3 fatty acids? Those are good fats. Additionally, the paleo diet allows you to eat avocados, olive oil, coconut oil, and flaxseed oil. These fats are allowed and actually benefit
Don’t Count Calories
counting calories are merely a starting point towards a healthier lifestyle. The paleo diet is
engineered to help you eat healthier and cleaner.
Achieve a Good Intake of Salt
By eliminating all processed and manufactured foods, which happen to be a major supplier of salty foods, paleo eaters naturally eat a lower sodium diet. This is extremely beneficial for your body
and your mental health. Paleo Leap wrote a great article on the salt intake that comes alongside the paleo diet.
These are just a few of the health benefits that come along with the paleo diet.
