For those of you who are not familiar with the Paleo diet the premise basically is to return to our healthy roots and eat like our ancestors, the cavemen. So basically, we only eat what comes from nature. The diet consists of meat, veggies, and fruits and nuts. Everything else is restricted. So no grains (even restricting rice and potatoes. Sweet potatoes are for some reason ok though) no beans, no caffeine, no alcohol etc. The one redeeming fact of this though is that it is stated that as long as you follow this diet 80% of the time you will see the benefits. So you are allowed to cheat :)
The plan does list many benefits including better health, better skin, weight loss :), more energy and just an overall better feeling. And you are supposed to feel the effects within two weeks of trying it. There are a lot of good recipes out there as well, it just looks like you definitely will be required to spend a lot of time in the kitchen and planning ahead to sustain this lifestyle. So what are your thoughts on this? Could the possible benefits outweigh the inconvenience? Would any of you be willing to try this diet? Please weight in, I'm curious to hear your thoughts.
