I don't like the term Paleo.
To me it sounds like a fad diet.
Plus, all the caveman talk bugs me a little.
I want to eat a real food diet. Except not a diet in the way it's usually thought of, but diet in the sense of a way of life.
It's what I eat. How I nourish my body (and mind).
For the past few months I've had to avoid grains and sugar in order to deal with some health issues.
Avoiding these things really does help. When I slack off and eat grains or sugar, I feel terrible. Like, really, really, terrible.
For this reason I have a lot of Paleo cookbook on my bookshelf and in my computer (eBooks). It's much easier for me to go to a cookbook and know that I can eat every recipe it has, then browse through other books checking to see what I can eat and what I can't, thinking about how to substitute certain ingredients, and so on. I don't have the energy for that right now, so I go with Paleo. It's just easier.
If you have any on-going health issues, I encourage you to try eliminating grains and sugar for a while to see if it helps.
Eating a Paeloish diet helps me in the following ways:
- Reduces stomach bloat
- Removes a few excess pounds
- Increases energy
- Aids sleep
I'm certain there are other benefits, but these are the ones I can attest to.
