The foods predominantly on the Paleo diet are:
- Seasonal local fruit and vegetables
- Herbs and Spices
However if you applied the above foods 80% of the week you would still lean out. Your energy levels would be good as long as you had adequate protein and good fats at meal times. If you are looking to build muscle in the gym then you can still follow this plan. If you find it hard to put on muscle then simply add in potatoes and rice to the equation.
A typical Paleo day may look like this:
- Breakfast - Eggs, ham, grilled mushrooms and grilled tomatoes
- Snack - Nuts and seed mix
- Lunch - Fish and mixed salad
- Snack - Cold meats
- Dinner - Steak with baked vegetables.
- Late evening - Berry mix
If you ate this way for the majority of the week with the occasional 'off' day or meal then you would shed pounds and change your bodyshape quite quickly.
Eat how we were designed to eat and feel the difference! If it wasn't around 2 million years ago, simply don't eat it!
