How Do I Start a Paleo Diet?

Thursday, April 28th, 2022
healthy foods to start a paleo diet

The Paleo diet is intended to be similar to what our ancestors and forefathers ate thousands of years in the past. When you start a paleo diet you can be assured you are eating like your ancestors, even if you don’t know exactly who they are. Although it is hard to know exactly what our predecessors ate in various regions of the world, scholars assume their diets were mostly up of complete foods.

The hunter-gatherers apparently had a considerably lower incidence of lifestyle illnesses such as obesity, and heart diseases because they followed a whole-food-based diet and lived physically active lifestyles. As a matter of fact, multiple studies demonstrate that this diet can result in considerable weight loss (without calorie tracking) and significant health advantages.

We provide you with a basic introduction to the paleo diet, including a meal plan and other important information.

However, some vegans eat far too many processed meals, which can be heavy in calories, fat, sugar, and salt. Furthermore, they may not consume enough fruits, whole grains, vegetables, and calcium-rich meals, depriving themselves of the minerals they supply.

How Much Fat Should I Eat

Almost all nutritious food has fat in it. Fats are used for a variety of purposes including transporting vital nutrients to cells, assisting in the digestion of certain foods, and providing us with energy in times of nutrient depletion. To be healthy you can’t, and shouldn’t, stay away from fat. Still, we find ourselves asking: how much fat should I eat in a day? What are the pros and cons of eating low-fat or fat-free? What kind of fat should I be eating most? Which foods provide healthy fats and which foods will kill me quickly?

As with my other articles how many carbs to eat in a day and how much protein to eat in a day, all depends on a couple of factors:

Butter
  • current bodyweight
  • dietary goals
  • cholesterol profile
  • activity level
  • lifestyle
  • time of day

The American Heart Association recommends limiting dietary fat to 30% of total calories. Take into consideration, however, if you are overweight, need to lower blood cholesterol, or have another medical concern, you may need less than the recommended 30%.

Let’s stop to consider all of the factors that go into determining how much fat we should eat.

How Much Protein Should I Eat

Hardcore bodybuilders, powerlifters, weightlifters, and even most other athletes eat a ton of protein in a day. OK, they don’t eat a “ton”, but they do eat more than the average person.

Most of us can’t follow that prescription so we end up with the nagging question, “how much protein should I eat in a day?” This leaves us with a number of additional oft-debated questions, such as:

“How much protein do the professionals eat?”

“Exactly how much protein do I eat?”

“How much protein is appropriate for me?”

“Can I physically eat ‘too much’ protein?”

“If so, what are the side effects?”

“Exactly how much is ‘too much’?”

Let’s stop to consider all of the factors that go into determining how much protein we should eat.
