The Paleo diet is an eating plan that was designed by Loran Cordain, who specializes in nutrition and the benefits of proper dieting to the human body and overall good health. This diet takes a leaf from our human ancestors who mainly consumed animal proteins and naturally occurring fruits, vegetables and berries, and although some may argue that this was a primitive diet model that does not provide the body with sufficient nutrients, recent studies have began to prove otherwise.
Food intolerance is usually confused with food allergies. Food intolerance means the inability or difficulty of your body to digest certain foods while food allergies trigger the immune system when your body recognises a certain type of food as harmful, even when it is not. Any food that you are allergic to even if consumed in very small amounts can trigger an allergic reaction. Lets explore these issues in more depth.

Is this disease new?
No. It has always existed but, in the past, it was rarely tested for and rarely diagnosed. In the last few years, publicity about celiac disease has increased and so have the diagnosed cases. Celiac disease, which was once considered rare, is now known to affect one in every 133 people in the United States. Most cases are still un-diagnosed, and many people are walking around with the disease but don’t realise that they have it.
Sleep is one of the most important aspects of a healthy lifestyle, period.
Yet why is it so many people around the world only get less than 6 hours sleep per night on a regular basis? A study in America revealed that 40% of people get less than the recommended amount of sleep. Many get less than 5 hours of quality sleep every night which is just incredible.
There are a number of reasons which may attribute this insane percentage, including but not limited to cellular devices, work stress and the speed at which people are expected to live their lives in this modern world.
Many people have turned to the Paleo diet and have achieved surprisingly good results. However, there are a number of others who seem to have an endless struggle and minimal results following the Palaeolithic way.
That need not be the case. The transition to Paleo should be as painless as possible and what is more, there should be evidence of progress. The essence of the Paleo diet is to try to mimic the eating habits and foodstuff that our ancestor survived on about 10,000 years ago. We do not have to eat everything the caveman did, but it would be a good idea to develop daily activities that would complement this dietary choice. Here are 44 Paleo tips guaranteed to give results.
