Paleo

What is the Paleo Diet?

You may also know this diet referred to as Paleolithic Diet, Cave Man Diet, Stone-Age Diet…all of these names refer to the Paleolithic (aka Paleo) Diet.

  • One of the first keys to the diet is higher protein intake, this is likely the most-infamous of the Paleo Diet rules as meat, seafood and other animal protein products should represent between 19 and 35 percent of the food in the modern Paleo Diet.
  • The next principle is lower-carb intake and low glycemic index, meaning non-starchy vegetables and fruits serve as the main carbohydrate source and should account for 35 to 45 percent of daily calories. High fiber is also a key principal, but since whole-grains are out of the equation, high fiber fruits and vegetables are the primary source of dietary fiber.
  • The next core principle of the Paleo Diet is moderate to higher fat intake. This is based on the premise of good fats versus bad fats and the Paleo approach includes high levels of the healthy polyunsaturated and monounsaturated fats. Minerals are important components in our diet, and the Paleo Diet focuses on higher potassium intake with lower sodium intake by cutting our processed foods that are great contributors of excess sodium in Western diets.
  • Then add a higher intake of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and plant-phytochemicals through plants and animals and argues that the vitamins and minerals in whole grains are not easily absorbed by the body.
  • The last piece of the puzzle is acid versus alkaline foods and balancing your dietary acid with a comparable net dietary alkaline load. This means balancing acid producing foods like meat, fish and salt with alkaline-producing fruits and vegetables.

The first few keys are easy to figure out on your own, but the last 2 gets a bit trickier. That is the beauty of Fia's Fresh Meals, we do all the hard work for you. Just order and enjoy. :-)
