“Paleo By Season” (Book Review)

“Paleo By Season” (Book Review)

By Petey’s Paleon

The Paleo diet is one of the most popular diets among health conscious individuals. It was created by Loren Cordain in the 1970s as a way to prevent chronic diseases such as heart disease, diabetes, cancer and obesity.

However, it has been criticized for its high protein intake and low carbohydrate content which are considered to be unhealthy for humans.

The Paleo diet is based on meat, fish, eggs and dairy products. Meat and seafood contain more than 70% protein while fruits and vegetables only have around 10%.

Eggs are a good source of protein but they do not provide enough energy to meet your daily needs. Fish contains higher amounts of omega 3 fatty acids than other animal foods like chicken or pork. Dairy products include milk, cheese, yogurt and ice cream. They are rich sources of calcium, vitamin D and potassium.

Some experts believe that the Paleo diet could lead to weight gain because it does not restrict carbohydrates. Other critics say that eating too much fat increases the risk of developing type 2 diabetes.

There is no hard evidence to support either side of these claims. What is certain though is that many people choose to follow a Paleo diet because they want to lose weight or improve their health.

I have been following a Paleo diet for almost five years now. Before I started this diet, I was experiencing headaches, muscle pain, joint pain, leg numbness and fatigue on a daily basis.

I had trouble concentrating and I also felt agitated most of the time. My sleep quality was so bad that I sometimes stayed awake until dawn. I went to different doctors but they were never able to find out what was wrong with me.

After an appointment with a nutritionist, I was diagnosed with mastocytosis, a rare disorder in which a person’s immune system produces too many mast cells. This leads to various health problems and over-secretion of hormones.

The nutritionist told me that mast cell tumors were linked to diet and environment so I started following the Paleo diet to manage my condition. After a few months, I noticed significant improvements in my condition. My headaches and muscle pain started to disappear. My energy levels increased and I was able to think more clearly. I had more restful sleep and was less tired.

I’ve lost weight and my clothes fit better too. It’s easy to follow this diet; I have lots of variety and I’m never bored of what I eat.

There are three main meals that include meat, fish, eggs, vegetables, fruits and nuts. I eat lots of eggs, shrimp and stir-fried vegetables with either pork or chicken. I also snack on nuts and fruits throughout the day. This is a healthy way of eating that can help you lose weight too. If you are overweight, following the Paleo diet will automatically help you shed those pounds.

The Paleo diet is a good choice for athletes too. My endurance increased and my times in all my runs have been getting better.

If you don’t eat meat, you may be missing out on amino acids that can improve your performance as well as energy levels. Meat contains the right kind of nutrients that can give you lasting energy during workouts.

If you have a medical condition like I do, following the Paleo diet can also help you manage your symptoms. My energy levels were really low before I started this diet but now I no longer feel tired or weak.

Just make sure that you don’t eat too much meat because even though it is high in protein and minerals, it also contains cholesterol and saturated fat. Too much of these can cause heart disease and stroke.

You should also eat lots of fruit and vegetables because they contain antioxidants and other nutrients that are essential for good health. These are also very low in fat and calories so you really can’t eat too many of them.

Paleo is not a typical diet and it is not one that you can follow temporarily to lose a few pounds. It’s more of a way of life that requires a significant change in your eating habits.

People who follow the Paleo diet usually end up eating this way for life because it makes them feel better, gives them more energy and improves their overall health.

It’s not easy if you love bread, pasta, potatoes and other starchy carbs but it’s worth it because ultimately you will be feeling much better and your health will improve. I’ll post an update in a few months to let you know how I’m doing.

Wish me luck!

UPDATE: One Year Later

It’s been a year since I’ve radically changed my diet to the Paleo lifestyle and I’m happy to say that I feel great! A lot of my symptoms have completely disappeared.

My headaches are gone, I no longer feel sluggish or tired and I have a lot more energy. I’m not constantly hungry anymore and I’ve lost 20lbs so now I need to buy all new clothes! I even ran a mile without stopping! I’ve never been able to do that before even when I was in top shape years ago.

Some people say that the Paleo diet is really expensive but that hasn’t really been my experience. I think it all depends on where you shop and what you buy.

For example, ground beef is much cheaper than steak so I make burgers instead of buying lean steak. I also stock up on fruits and vegetables when they are in-season and on sale. They are a lot cheaper then. I also avoid buying pre-packaged and processed foods. They may be easier but they are generally really expensive and full of ingredients that aren’t good for you.

Overall, I am really glad that I made the change to a Paleo lifestyle. My whole family is doing it (minus the raw meat part!) and they all feel better too.

I don’t even mind the fact that I have to cook two separate meals for my wife and daughter because it’s so easy now.

My advice to anyone out there who wants to try this, is to just do it!Seriously, just go ahead and make the commitment because it’s so easy once you get into the groove of things.

Your body will thank you for it!
