Benefits of the Modern Paleo Diet
The Modern Paleo Diet has so many health benefits including disease prevention, resolution of numerous health conditions, reduced acidity, weight loss, improved blood lipids, regulation of blood sugar, reducing inflammation and longevity.
Countless people, including myself, have recovered their health on the Paleo diet simply because they nourished their bodies with the proteins, fats and nutrients the body requires to function properly. The Paleo diet has not only stood the test of time, but also the rigors of scientific scrutiny.
I call my version of Paleo diet the Modern Paleo diet because it allows certain modifications to include relatively new, modern foods like dairy, potatoes and gluten-free grains in the diet if you tolerate them well. These foods are not on the traditional, basic Paleo diet. However, I don’t see any reason to exclude these foods if you don’t have a problem with them like a sensitivity or allergy. The Modern Paleo diet will be discussed in detail over the next few blog posts.
