Book Description PALEO FOR ATHLETES: LOSE WEIGHT AND GET MUSCLE QUICKLY AND EASILY WITH THE PALEO SOLUTION by Marc Holden provides practical insights and solutions for using the Paleo diet.. The Paleo diet is based upon eating wholesome, contemporary foods from the food groups which our ancestors who were hunters-gatherers ate.
It is referred to as the Paleo diet because these ancestors who thrived on such a diet lived 10,000 years ago in the Paleolithic era. Their diet was composed of fresh free range grass-fed meats like: beef, pork, lamb, poultry, and game meat, fish, and other seafood. In addition, these healthy ancestors gathered fresh fruits, vegetables, seeds, nuts, and healthy oils like: olive, coconut, avocado, macadamia, walnut and flaxseed.
The Paleo diet avoids things like dairy products, cereal grains, legumes, refined sugars and processed foods which were simply not part of our ancestors’diet. So why the Paleo diet? Simple! The Paleo diet is not just a fad like so many other diets. It has undergone decades of research by such noted scientists as Dr. Loren Cordain. It has demonstrate repeatedly that hunter-gatherers as a civilization did not suffer from chronic illnesses and diseases that have plagued our modern society. Our ancestors did not have rampant obesity. There were no cases of cancer, type 2 diabetes, heart disease or other diseases that we find common today.
