PALEO

Paleo diet also popularly referred to as the caveman diet, Stone Age diet and hunter-gatherer diet, is a nutritional plan based on the presumed ancient diet of wild plants and animals thatvarious human species habitually consumed during the Paleolithic Era.

Based on (fresh fruits, vegetables, lean meats, and seafood) , because of their beneficial nutrients (soluble fiber,antioxidant vitamins, phytochemicals, omega-3 and monounsaturated fats, and low-glycemic carbohydrates) that promote good health and are low in the foods and nutrients (refined sugars and grains, saturated andtrans fats, salt, high-glycemic carbohydrates, and processed foods) that frequently may cause weight gain, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and numerous other health problems.HOW DOES IT WORKS?

Protein has two to three times the thermic effect of either fat or carbohydrate, meaning that it revs up your metabolism, speeding weight loss.
Additionally,protein has a much greater satiety value than either fat or carbohydrate, so it puts the brakes on your appetite.
High-protein diets are more effective than low-fat, high-carbohydrate diets inpromoting weight loss.
The carbohydrates (unlimited fruits and veggies) in The Paleo Diet are of a low-glycemic index, meaning that they cause slow and limited rises in your blood sugar and insulin levels.Excessive insulin and blood sugar levels are known to promote a cluster of diseases called Syndrome X (obesity, hypertension, undesirable blood cholesterol and other blood lipid levels, Type 2diabetes and gout).
