So I have mentioned a few different times on here that I have been reading and following a Paleo diet. A few posts have even been tagged "Paleo". What does that mean? Well, the short answer is that it is a diet based on how the caveman would have eaten - meat, vegetables, fruits, seeds and nuts. No refined sugars, grains or dairy!
I actually grew up allergic to dairy, so that is easy for me, but the grains is usually where people get caught up. Being diabetic and having to deal with erratic blood sugar levels, removing grains has been amazing for me. I really feel great. Some might say that it is removing gluten from your diet, which I would likely agree, but I dont like using the processed foods that removed gluten either because the carbohydrate level is still typically the same and doesnt help me with my blood sugars.
If you have been struggling with blood sugars and diet, it is worth a try. My philosophy is that everyone is different and not every diet is perfect for everyone, so make it what works for you. There is somewhat of an 80/20 rule in my life and diet, Paleo meals 80-85% of the time makes a huge difference in my mood and energy levels.
If you want some more information read Robb Wolf or Dr. Loren Cordain.
