Is It As Healthy As We Once Thought?
By: Kendall Frederics
What is Paleo?
Unfortunately, some followers tend to lose some of the nutritional values found in dairy, grains and legumes.
The expenses of Paleo consumers are significantly higher in order to meet their organic commodity standards. For some, taking part in this diet it can be somewhat unaffordable in their budgets.
Evolution changes rapidly over time so, the human race now shouldn't be considered biologically identical to cavemen that once walked this Earth.
There haven’t been numerous studies addressing and supporting the health claims of the Paleo diet; therefore, how do we know the full consequences behind it?
- Advocates for Paleo insist that the diet leaves its followers feeling more energized throughout the day due to the low carb intake which causes dramatic shifts in energy levels.
- Partakers in this diet have an increased improvement in their body's blood lipids
- It also has been known to improve blood pressure, glucose tolerance, and while it increases insulin sensitivity, it decreases insulin secretion.
