One of the greatest things about eating Paleo is how freeing it is. You don’t have to count points, you don’t have to watch carbs, and you don’t have to starve yourself. Unlike so many diets and healthy eating lifestyles out there that require a major transition for you, eating Paleo is simple and easy.
But most importantly eating Paleo is fun! The rules are simple, make sure that every meal has protein, good fat, and good carbs and watch your body change like never before.
So many of us are starved for protein and we don’t even know it. We think that the reason we can’t shrink that unwanted fat is because we aren’t doing enough cardio or working out enough. The truth is that these things are important and they do play a major part in the way that you look. But as important as these things are they aren’t as important as protein.
Protein doesn’t just help you to feel fuller for a longer period of time, it also helps to shrink those fat cells and build new muscle. Yes, working out and doing cardio are very important to the way that your body looks, but what you eat is even more important. If you can’t seem to get rid of those unwanted pounds you might be starved for protein.
Believe it or not, healthy fats help you to lose weight. These fats don’t cling to your body, in fact they will help you to drop that unwanted weight quickly. They will also help with your lipid profile (your choresterol and triglycerides).
We have been taught that carbs is a dirty word. So many diets scare us into believing that carbs are a bad thing that we shouldn’t be eating. In reality, it isn’t the carbs that are the bad thing, it is the carbs from processed foods that are bad for us. If you are getting your carbs from food that is so processed that it won’t go bad until a few months or years from now, then that is not a good carb.
On the other hand, vegetables do offer another kind of carb, they offer healthy carbs. These are the kind of carbs that are going to make energy for your body and keep you feeling like you are on cloud nine all day long.
Make sure that every meal you eat has these three things and you will be well on your way to Paleo success.
