Why does Paleo see improved results over SAD diet. How the marketing skews the truth.

Well many people go on trendy diets to seek weight loss or better health. Paleo “the Caveman diet” has people going around bragging about how great their blood markers are and how great they feel. When you cut out a large portion of your calories from junk food one will definitely notice improvements in health. Often these processed foods also carry a lot of refined oils, sugar and empty calorie ingredients. Eliminating these foods really can lower ones total caloric intake which the science show it improves blood markers and longevity.  This also includes the fact that paleo ads lots more nuts and vegetables and some fruit. Look at this study here: http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2010/05/100510161250.htm. You will notice these foods that they eat more of improve blood markers. So is it the leaner meats that lower their cholesterol or inflammation? I don’t thinks so. Again one must look at the total package of foods. When one consumes more whole foods and less processed foods they will notice a change in health. Now I challenge every paleo advocate out there to go a step further and go on a plant strong diet (100 percent plant foods). If they follow it correctly they will find that they will see even better results than they found on paleo. Many stop at Paleo. If one is truly focused on thriving and good health one will make the leap to 100 percent whole foods plant diet here one will maximize their nutrient consumption and health potential.

One more note. If one believes that paleo is the way to achieve a six pack, think again. There are plenty of SAD diet eaters that have six packs. A six pack does not prove internal artery health and a sign total good health. We tend to glorify fit bodies but remember the outside shell has nothing to do with the internal environment. I have seem plenty of ripped personal trainers chow down on McDonalds and soda.  These results come from eating less and working out more. So basically burning more calories a day  so your body can’t put on fat.

(a lot of blogs will attempt to persuade you that this is not true. I say show me the evidence that it is not)

    I think the big question is if inflammation is being controled by grass fed meats. How come so many paleo are on fish oil? WHmmm? Interesting?

    The Caveman Power Diet increases energy, the ability to burn fat, and gets you in touch with your natural instincts. It’s not just a way to lose weight, it’s a healthy approach to making your body indestructable.Doing the the Caveman Power Diet is a very natural state for your body to be in, and you will feel the results immediately. Embrace it for what it is; animal motivation. It is a very open do-it-yourself diet, that encourages you to feel content in a way that suits you personally.’
