The Paleo Diet & Weight Loss
With the 1.4 billion people, & a third of the US population, said to be obese according to the WHO it is not surprising that so many fad diets are popping up all over the place promising quick weight loss & slim bodies.
Some would say that the Paleo diet could be lumped with this group of fad diets, however Paleo eating has been around since the era of the caveman so it’s hardly a new way of eating.
Furthermore, it is the one diet that is not restrictive & actually allows you to eat as much as you like as long as you are eating foods from the Paleo list of approved foods of which there are many.
Will the Paleo Diet Help You Lose Weight Easily?
Many Paleo converts support the Paleo diet as an effective way to improve your health & lose excess weight and also claim that it’s the most compatible diet for the human body’s biology – in other words, your body will perform optimally if it is fed food that is most suitable for its genetics.
For those who are diabetic, pre-diabetic, obese or just overweight it is important to know that eating a Paleo styled diet will help normalize your blood sugar & insulin levels which is key to controlling diabetes & weight.
It’s virtually impossible to gain weight whilst eating a nutrient rich diet of fresh meat, eggs, fish, vegetables & fruit

On the other hand eating processed, refined foods high in sugar will increase blood sugar levels, increase insulin production & set you up for obesity & diabetes.
Continuing with an unhealthy diet will eventually cause you to becoming insulin resistant & the food you eat will not be processed properly & end up getting dumped into your cells as fat causing progressive weight gain & obesity.
Furthermore, Paleo is a gluten-free diet which means that grains, which are unsuitable for the human body’s digestive system & cause inflammation, bloating & weight gain, are excluded.
Grains also contain lectin which irritates the gut & can lead to celiac disease as well as other gastrointestinal issues such as constipation, indigestion & IBS (irritable bowel syndrome) etc.
The last word on the health & weight loss benefits you could get from going Paleo goes to Dr Loren Cordain who says that “Clinical trials have shown the Paleo diet is the optimum diet that can lower the risk of cardiovascular disease, blood pressure, markers of inflammation, help with weight loss, reduce acne, promote optimum health and athletic performance”
