Dr. Oz listens to experts explain the many benefits of the Paleo Diet lifestyle.
If you haven’t heard about the Paleo Diet or “eating like a caveman”, Dr. Oz entertained experts on April 23, 2013 about this healthy way to eat to help explain just what it entails and what those health benefits might be. The Paleo Diet is not a low carb style diet – it focuses on healthy lean proteins like grass fed beef, wild caught seafood and organic free range chicken with non starchy, fibrous vegetables and fruits, some seeds and nuts and healthy fats like coconut oil and avocado. The Paleo lifestyle eliminates dairy, legumes, whole grains and refined sugars.
A typical Paleo meal would be about 2/3 of your plate filled with fresh (organic, if possible) vegetables, about 4-6 ounces of a lean protein like organic grass fed beef or wild caught seafood or free range chicken (about the size of your palm, there’s no weighing or calorie counting here), a small portion of a healthy fat like a slice of avocado or scoop of guacamole and a couple small pieces of fruit. This is the plan for all your meals and some find it simpler to eat leftovers for breakfast rather than cook a grass fed steak, for example, in the morning. Healthy smoothies are also an option for breakfast.
The experts state that if you follow this plan for 30 days you will eliminate cravings for unhealthy, processed foods and slowly lose weight for maximum benefit. The other biggest advantage appears to be a reduction in inflammation within the body which can be the root of many other ailments. It is also claimed that this way of eating is what our bodies were designed to eat and that this balanced diet provides your body with nutrients that are less likely to be rejected.
