Start your Paleo track

PaleoDo you sometimes feel that your life could be much healthier, more enjoyable and a lot more fun? It’s hard to enjoy life to the full when your health has been compromised and your energy reserves just seem to have evaporated, leaving you feeling tired and listless. And the way we eat plays a big part in how much energy we can have for enjoyment and health.

We’ve spent most of our existence as a species living in the wilds, living on animal protein, roots, nuts and vegetables and the occasional piece of fruit. No, I’m not suggesting that we should abandon our amazing technology and the comforts of civilisation and go back to living in caves! Might be fun for a weekend but that’s not the mission. Our bodies evolved to function very efficiently on that hunter-gatherer diet and we’re now beginning to understand that many ‘modern’ diseases can be traced to the agricultural revolution and our eventual dependence on grains.

Research points the finger at grains and the inflammatory response that results from our grain-rich diet. We became so dependent on wheat, oats, barley, rice that these grains became our staple foods. The problem is that we haven’t adapted to these basic foods and, when we add the corrosive effects of a sugar-rich diet to the equation, we end up with a formula for disease, low energy, extraordinary weight gain and a host of unpleasant side effects. The answer? It really couldn’t be simpler. Eat the way your body evolved to eat and get ready to be astonished at the results. New energy, improved health, unwanted weight loss, clearer skin, longer life – how much incentive do you need? Get on the Paleo track today. The food’s so delicious, your taste buds will sending you Thank You notes. And your body will never be the same again.

Enjoy!
