4 Reasons why the Paleo diet will work for you!
- Decreased consumption of allergens - The most probable reasons why people get amazing health and performance results on the paleo diet is because they’re eliminating many of the foods that cause inflammation and activation of the immune system. These substances include but aren’t limited to gluten (from wheat, rye, barley and contaminated oats), casein (from dairy products) and lectins (mainly from beans/ legumes).
- Decreased toxic load - Another main factor for why the paleo diet works is that by going back to traditional foods the number of chemicals we ingest (from preservatives, colours etc.) on a daily basis can be greatly reduced.
- Better regulation of insulin and other key hormones - Insulin and many other key hormones such as DHEA, testosterone, estrogen, leptin and cortisol function better on the paleo diet.
- Nutrient dense -Finally the paleo diet when done properly provides more vitamins and minerals than any other mainstream diet plan, leaving your body better nourished and with the resources to rebuild itself.
