Paleo – Ten Reasons
You do your very best to take care of your health, because you want to live life to the fullest. You strive to exercise, get proper rest, and alleviate stress so that you can enjoy days filled with energy, vitality, and good health. But when it comes to what you put into your body, you know you’re not making the best choices possible.
You see, the food industry has succumbed to mass production… and taken consumers (even health-conscious people like you) down with it. For most people, it’s virtually impossible to visit a grocery without picking up items that have been heavily processed and are filled with loads of nasty chemicals that sap your energy and shorten your lifespan!
It’s all done in the interest of convenience (and not yours)! Processing and the addition of preservatives, artificial flavorings, and other chemicals make it easier for big food conglomerates to pump out truckloads of food all day, every day… and rake in unimaginable profits in the process!
Diabetes… obesity… arthritis… heart disease… the list of maladies that can be traced back to the food you eat goes on and on.
At one time, most of the diseases we accept as an unavoidable part of life today simply didn’t exist. Our distant ancestors, as primitive as they might have seemed, didn’t have to worry about things like heart attacks, diabetes, obesity, or stoke.
And they certainly didn’t lack energy or focus. A human 3,000 years ago probably accomplished more in a single day than most of us get done in a month… and without the modern "time saving" conveniences we rely on today!
Sure, they exercised more because they had to. But that wasn’t the real reason early humans led such robust, energetic lives…
You see, the human body adapted over many centuries to optimally use the food humans had available for fuel. This adaptation occurred out of sheer necessity, so that the human race could continue to thrive.
It wasn’t like our distant ancestors could just stop by their favorite fast food restaurants on the way back to the cave. Instead, they ate what was available – meats, nuts, berries, fruits, vegetables, and the like. And it all worked out pretty well for centuries.
Today, our physical makeup is not much different from that of our ancestors. But our diet… well, that’s a different story. We pump our bodies full of toxic chemicals and empty calories… and many times, we don’t even realize what we’re doing to ourselves!
If you really want to enjoy optimal health… and experience vibrant energy and even live longer… then you need to ask yourself, "Why am I consuming foods that my body isn’t designed to run on?"
In other words… if you want the same incredible health and energy that early humans had… you need to base your lifestyle on the foods they ate!
Getting back to the basic, wholesome foods that the hunter-gatherers ate centuries ago can give your body the correct… Read more…
