Nutrition for a New Age: The Paleo Diet

As part of my New Year’s resolution for better self care, I will be taking a closer look at the Paleo diet. It is not only nutritionally sound, but also proven by evolutionary science.

Our early ancestors were not barraged with heart disease, diabetes, hypertension and other illnesses that plague modern society.

Today we are inundated with diet books, nutritional scams, infomercials and much misinformation. But what I will be investigating is based on the foods that our ancestors ate, and compelling data that has surfaced recently.

Exercise and good nutrition are the ultimate path to good health. Hippocrates said “Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food.”

If you start this way of eating, you are going to love the way it tastes and the way it makes you feel. You will lose weight and be healthier.

I will break it down and discuss specific foods later, and I’ll be providing resources and recipes, as well as tips for grocery shopping and dining out that will make this form of eating a way of life, and an easy and tasty transition.

Look for it here, in my forthcoming nutrition installments each Friday on Beauty Shall Save the World. Talk to you soon.
