So, I've recently adopted a new custom, the Paleo diet. Also known as the Caveman diet, consisting of things our primitive ancestors ate, including
fruits, veggies, meats, and nuts. No dairy or grains.

The Paleo Diet
Think about it... it's actually a genetic mutation for humans to digest milk. Lactose intolerance is actually the original state of human beings,
until some odd thousands of years ago, a mutation occurred, and now people can somehow digest milk after their infant years (maybe that's a conspiracy
itself? I dunno).
You won't be packing on those empty carbs and calories anymore.
In every day life, you feel much better, don't need as much food, and you drop weight like nothing. I haven't been doing it long at all, but it feels
amazing. It feels very right.
True, you would have to give a lot of normal things up, and you wouldn't be able to eat fast food for every meal... but it seems worth it to me.
In a SHTF scenario, the most basic foods are gonna be the ones you come across most often. A Paleo diet will be the alternative to whatever your
current diet may be, so why not get a head start? You don't wanna start off in a SHTF world out of shape anyway.
Here are some tips on the best way to use a Paleo diet for your benefit:
1. Get rid of pasta, bread, rice, and potatoes out of your diet. Starchy foods are excellent fillers and became “staple” foods following the
agricultural revolution because they were cheap and straightforward to grow, and could assistance a larger population. Even so, they’re notorious
for lacking in nutrition, and the system quickly converts this foods into extra fat.
2. DO consume refreshing fruits, greens, nuts, seeds and meat. For the same factors you do not desire to consume bread, rice, and pasta. Nutritional
worth in these foods are a lot higher, along with your system utilizes the vitamins and proteins contained in these meals particularly throughout and
after bodily workout.
3. DO cook your meals. The Paleo Diet is occasionally mistakenly lumped with raw foods diets. They are not the exact same factor, and won’t obtain
the exact same goal. And yes – paleolithic guy cooked his foods. Cooking will method the food and support make it not just much more palatable, but
easier for your physique to digest.
Also, look at this.
Does this chick look 44?
She's 44 years old. Eva La Rue.
She looks healthy, right? I usually don't present plain looking people as a "role model" (I'm very alternative) but this is a point being proven
regarding health facts.
The Paleo diet, the diet our ancestors used, the people who hunted and killed every meal they ate, and who had the physical ability to do so, should
be everyone's first choice. No fructose corn syrup, no empty carbs, no poison.
Don't get me wrong, I haven't given up dairy and grains altogether, but mostly. I plan on having a mushroom swiss burger once a month or so as a
Not to mention, this diet doesn't require me to give up buffalo wings. (YES!)
Trust me. This is the only life you're given, don't waste it. Get healthy. You never know if TSHTF in our lifetime... and besides that point, TSHTF in
our regular daily lives all the time (robberies, car wrecks, home invasions, shootouts, chases, etc).
I'm trying... you try too.
