What is the paleo diet?

  1. The paleo diet is based on the fact that our DNA has changed very little over the past few thousand years. That while our lifestyle, and also our eating habits, are very different from those of our ancestors. According to the paleo diet, it is healthier if we go back to the way humans ate. After all, we are â € builtâ € ™.

  1. In practice, this means a diet that consists mainly of meat, fish, vegetables, fruit and nuts. Most other products are prohibited. No alcohol, sugar and processed ingredients, but also no dairy, soy, grains and legumes.

Paleo recipes

  1. Some good breakfast recipes within the paleo diet are:

  1. For lunch you can of course just use leftovers from your dinner. Other tasty options include:

  1. There is of course endless variations with the dinner. A few suggestions:

Benefits of paleo

  1. So it is not the case that with the paleo diet you only eat bare chicken. Nevertheless, it is of course quite a limitation to impose yourself! Why then do so many people choose this way of eating? Below we list two main benefits of the paleo diet.

  1. Perhaps the most important point is that with the paleo diet you no longer eat processed foods. That means that you hardly consume any unhealthy additives, which is just very healthy. For example, eating â € naturalâ € ™ significantly reduces the risk of cardiovascular disease in some people.

  1. In addition, there are several other benefits; your skin and hair also become healthier from an unprocessed diet. Some people also suffer less from all kinds of allergies with an adjusted diet.

  1. Losing weight is not the primary goal of the paleo diet. Yet many people do lose weight with it, especially when they are just starting out. The reason is that paleo food is generally much more filling than the food most people get from the supermarket.

  1. After all, it contains more fiber, and fewer useless added calories such as sugar. This ensures that you naturally eat less, and therefore consume fewer calories. If that is less than you use, you will soon lose a few kilos â € automaticâ € ™.

Disadvantages of paleo

  1. However, that doesn't mean paleo is a â € perfectâ € ™ diet! It does have major drawbacks (although they are not often recognized by fanatical followers). The main two are:

  1. The idea of ​​â € eating like a prehistoric manâ € ™ sounds nice of course. Yet you can certainly not one in one say that you are healthier if you just adopt that diet. There are a lot of reasons for this:

  1. A second problem is that the paleo diet excludes a number of food categories that are usually seen as healthy. Think dairy, legumes and healthy grains. By excluding them, you quickly run into significant shortages. For example, you would have to eat 3 kilos of broccoli or 350 grams of almonds every day to get enough calcium.

  1. Fiber is also difficult to get enough without legumes and grains. To compensate for the bread that you don't eat, you should eat about 550 grams of vegetables every day. And then there is the recommended amount of fruit and vegetables on top!

  1. In short, how healthy is the paleo diet exactly? In principle, it is a very good idea to eat more raw food. So in that respect the diet is on the right track. However, the assumptions and theories on which it is based do not always make sense, and the same is true of some of the banned foods.

  1. So in the end you usually end up healthier by 'just' eating varied and unprocessed food, without all the primal thinking around it! So feel free to eat grains, dairy and legumes every now and then. In addition, you can of course choose regular paleo recipes.
