What is Paleo?
Paleo is a lifestyle, not a diet – eat “real” food — fresh, natural food like meat, vegetables and fruit. Choose foods that are nutrient dense, with lots of naturally-occurring vitamins and minerals, over foods that have more calories but less nutrition.
It’s not a low calorie “diet” — eat as much as you need to maintain strength, energy and a healthy weight. In fact, paleo diet is probably much higher in fat than you’d imagine. Fat isn’t the enemy — it’s a great energy source when it comes from high quality foods like avocado, coconut and nuts.
Eating like this is good for maintaining a healthy metabolism, and reducing inflammation within the body. It also does great things for energy levels, body composition and performance in the gym. It also helps to minimize risk for a whole host of lifestyle diseases and conditions, like diabetes, heart attack and stroke.
The Paleo lifestyle emphasizes natural movement over machine-based exercises and brief but intense strength training workouts over extended sessions of steady-state cardio. Too much cardio is the exercise equivalent of “healthy whole grains:” touted by the Department of Health, recommended by doctors everywhere, and damaging to your entire system. CrossFit is living the Paleo lifestyle.
