Any else on Paleo Diet/Lifestyle?

3 years, 5 months ago

If so, how did you find out about it? How long have you been on it? What keeps you going (motivated)? What types of food do you eat on a daily basis? How do your friends/family feel about your lifestyle? What changes have you noticed having been on the diet? Do you have any recommendations for a fellow paleo follower?

I’ve been checking out,
http://www.marksdailyapple.com
http://www.hunter-gatherer.com
http://www.health-bent.com
to name a few. Does anyone else have any other website suggestions?

Thanks!

So the idea is eat the way humans would have thousands of years ago right? How long was their life expectancy again?

http://www.athleticcapital.com/2011/05/3-quick-tips-to-improve-your-health-may-2011/ I have found blood type diets to work. The reason Paleo is so popular and efficient is that nearly 1/2 of the world population is Blood Type O which favors a Paleo type diet. Take a look at the post and let me know what you think!

General tits, you are correct that our ancestors life expectancy was significantly less. Unfortunately you’re not taking into account the other reasons we live longer.

We live in climate controlled homes; with sanitation; electricity; help from local services such as fire and ambulance; modern medical technology; vaccines; easy access to food; protection from wild animals etc… All those environmental factors play a huge role in increasing lifespan.

Your average hunter/gatherer lived in a cave, surrounded by bears, with help from no one.

Genetically however, we are the same as him. So in my opinion it would make logical sense to eat as he does what the earth originally provided. Who knows, if you combine a really healthy diet with all the improvements in our society you might make it to 200 :P

I hope blood type diet holds no truth, I love meat and dairy too much. I’ll have to look into it further.

As for life expectancy, Mitch nailed it on the head, we have come a long with with sanitation, modern medicine, not having to worry about getting eaten/mauled by some giant feline. It really is made easier to live for longevity nowadays, we’d just need to avoid getting hit by a car, eat well, and not smoke.

This sounds like a good idea to me. To be honest I’ve kind of done this by accident. Fallen into this type of diet through my upbringing and general love of those foods especially meat.

Anywhere I could find a rundown of what exactly this entails though?

Stephen, this is what initially got my interest into the diet. This interview explains a lot of the reasoning behind it. Enjoy!

@Chode Well, many indigenous tribes still eat that way and many of them have far longer lives than “modern man.” Also, just look at the people who really live these types of lifestyles. They’re some of the healthiest people you’ll meat. Our bodies haven’t changed much since the upper paleolithic, we’re still optimized for the same lifestyle (including diet.)

Out of all the popular diets, paleo is definitely the most sane one. I’m not a follower of the paleo diet system, but there are many similarities between my lifestyle and theirs.
