Introducing the Paleo diet: A healthy new eating trend

Hello, all you diet addicts out there! Hereby I shall introduce the Paleo diet. But guess what: The Paleo diet is supposed to be one of the most healthiest diets which has ever been out there. At least that is what everyone tells me. 

Ok, starting from the beginning. The Paleo diet is right now the “hottest” or “healthiest” trend out there among all the diets. Many celebs like Megan Fox, Miley Cyrus and so on are doing it with joy. The Paleo springs up from the word Paleolithic era which was a time period from about two and a half millions ago. It was an era where our ancestors hunted for fresh foods which included fresh meat, fish, seafood, fruits, vegetables, oils, seeds and nuts. As you know, processed food did not exist during that time nor refined sugars and dairy products. Hence, the paleo diet is all about eating healthy and mainly eating these types of things which the “wild hunters” would eat.

On the left you can see the food pyramid with regards to Paleo. Your main source of nutrition and protein should be meat, eggs and fish. The meat should be of high quality and the other products certainly, too. What is missing on the pyramid are any types of diary products, wheat or grains. No milk, No yoghurt, no bread! And sugar is also cut at all. Alcohol is also not “allowed” during that diet. Nonetheless, Paleo is not really a diet which you follow for a couple of weeks but rather a lifestyle as you have to completely change your whole style of eating and living. 

Does it work? Paleo in real life:
My boyfriend is also trying the Paleo diet right now. I have to admit that it is definitely harder than we thought. We are both very healthy eaters and I try to avoid bread, sugars and alcohol as much as I can, anyways. So for me, the diet is not really a change but for my boyfriend it is pretty tough. He had to cut his beloved spaghetti and also cutting bread was the most difficult challenge for him. He also didn’t feel very well for the first week so I think that it really depends on the person how well you take it. Nonetheless, he is still following it. His goal is not to loose weight but to just feel overall better and healthier. I will tell you in a couple of weeks how it turned out. Below you can see some pics of the healthy Paleo pancakes we made just recently for breakfast. It is crazy, they just contain coconut flour, eggs and baking soda and tasted very well.

Above you can see a pic from my last holiday with my most favourite sweets at all: Frozen Yoghurt!! That had to be cut too (my biggest loss;)).
Have you tried Paleo already or are you following any type of special diet?
What is your key to stay slim and healthy?
Have a great day!
