The paleo diet helps you to loose weight without cutting down calories. Foods eaten in this type of diet includes fresh lean meat and fish,seeds,fruits,vegetables and healthier fats and oils such as coconut oil.
Avoid Processed Foods On The Caveman Diet
Any processed food is not allowed on this type of diet. Foods such as dairy,wheat,legumes such as beans and peanuts should be avoided completely. Other types of foods to avoid includes: salt,potatoes and refined sugar.
Sometimes the caveman diet is hard to follow since game meat is not always readily available and most of the modern food is cultivated rather than left grow by themselves in the wild and also most meats are domesticated. This diet emphasizes on a high intake of meat,seafood and vegetables.
