What is a Paleo Diet?
In simple terms, the paleo diet is a diet that is based on only eating foods that were consumed by our hunter-gatherer ancestors during the Paleolithic times (before agriculture, which brought grain cultivation and domestication of animals for meat and dairy and industrial revolution started) hence the name ‘paleo’ diet. The diet basically consists of seeds, fruit, fish, nuts, vegetables and meat but excluding those that are processed, grains and products from dairy. By design, the diet significantly reduces the amounts of sugars and carbs consumed through elimination of processed foods, which are usually high in sugars and carbs. Generally, the carb-rich foods allowed in paleo have low glycemic index (they are metabolized slowly and subsequently have less effect on spiking blood sugar levels, which increases chances of fat accumulation) since they are mainly complex carbohydrates.
This means that your body gets to be more efficient in burning fats since carbs and sugars are greatly reduced. With simple carbs minimized as the main sources of energy, your body has a greater likelihood of burning fats for energy explaining why fats are burned more in this diet. This is perhaps because of the fact that insulin, a hormone, which has fat burning inhibiting properties, is reduced when you take foods low in glycemic index. And besides, what’s more healthy than eating the way nature intended us to eat.
