People from all walks of life are rediscovering the benefits of the Paleo diet as a healthy alternative to the processed foods that clog up modern supermarket shelves. So what is the diet all about?
he Paleo diet came into being around 2002, after many years of research by Dr. Loren Cordain Ph.D. (the world’s leading expert on Paleolithic diet and founder of the Paleo movement) and his scientific colleagues. Dr. Cordain discovered that for optimum health and well-being we should be eating nutritious, wholesome, natural foods from the food groups our ancestors would have eaten during the Paleolithic (Stone Age) era, around ten thousand years ago. These foods are: – Free range meat, poultry, game, offal (organ meats), fish, seafood and free range eggs. These are proteinbased foods which develop strong muscles, healthy bones and optimal immune function. Protein also makes you feel satisfied between meals. – Nuts and seeds which are rich in plant proteins, unsaturated fatty acids, fibre, minerals and antioxidants. Peanuts are not really nuts at all, but legumes, and so are excluded from the Paleo diet. – Unrefined vegetable, plant and seed oils such as avocado, olive, coconut and flaxseed which are mono unsaturated. These contain omega-3 fatty acids, which cannot be produced by our bodies. Omega-3 has an important role in the preservation of healthy heart and brain function and the normal growth and development of the body. – Fresh fruits and vegetables which supply carbohydrates and contain valuable vitamins and minerals that our bodies require to maintain good health. All fruits and vegetables offer excellent health benefits. Nutritional research proves that each one contains its own particular vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and other important nutrients. To get the maximum health benefits, experts recommend eating a variety of fruits and vegetables along with other natural foods. – Seaweed and sea vegetables which are rich in minerals and are among the most nutritionally dense plant food sources on earth, because they absorb valuable nutrients found in the seas.

Dr. Cordain and his colleagues became conscious that processed and artificial foods have had an alarming effect on our health, giving rise to modern chronic illnesses, such as cancer, Type 2 diabetes, osteoporosis, cardiovascular disease (heart disease, stroke, high blood pressure, congestive heart failure, atherosclerosis) and the modern-day epidemic of obesity. Research has established that following the Paleo diet will keep you lean, strong and full of energy and can also help you lose weight, reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease, lower blood pressure and reduce acne. Since it was established, the Paleo pattern of eating has garnered a large following of devotees, including celebrities, athletes and in fact anyone who wants to improve their overall health. Paleo diet foods are natural, free from preservatives, artificial colourings and flavourings, and chemical additives. Some foods therefore are not allowed. Dairy foods, cereals, grains, pulses (legumes), refined sugar and refined salt, processed foods and starchy vegetables are banned, as they were not part of the original Stone Age diet. The Paleo way of eating is high in valuable nutrients (soluble fibre, antioxidants, vitamins, phytochemicals, omega-3 and monounsaturated fats and low-glycemic carbohydrates) that maintain good health, stabilise blood sugar levels, increase energy and promote a strong immune system. As the diet is low in lowglycemic carbohydrates it has generated interest amongst people with diabetes. And if you want to lose weight you won’t feel hungry on this diet, as protein and fibre are filling and an added bonus is that there’s no need to count carbs or calories. There’s no weighing or measuring - you can’t overeat - you just eat the right types of food until you feel satisfied. Following the Paleo diet isn’t difficult – cooking real food doesn’t have to be pricey or timeconsuming. These easy-to-follow recipes include tasty main meals, delicious desserts, cookies and cakes using Paleo friendly ingredients.
