I hear a lot of people ragging on the Paleo Diet, and I'm definitely not a fan. Any diet that restricts me to only "wild" and "raw" foods is one that I know I'm going to have a hard time with, and it may not be the healthiest choice for all. But could it save your life? For food blogger Russ Crandall, it really did!
How the Paleo Diet Saved a LifeRuss Crandall - also known as The Domestic Man - was a 24-year old in pretty average health. He ate well, did as much exercise as any other blogger, and took care of himself. What a shock it was when he suffered a stroke - the result of a very rare autoimmune disorder. The disorder - known as Takayasu's Arteritis - causes inflammation in the blood vessels, which can lead to damage in the heart, narrowed or blocked arteries, chest pain, and high blood pressure. Ultimately, in Crandall, it led to a stroke. He underwent a risky, potentially life-threatening surgery - which did nothing to fix the problem. After three years of medication and pretty much every treatment he could find, there was no hope in sight. Then he found the Paleo Diet - or, as it's more commonly called, the Caveman Diet
Should You Try the Paleo Diet?As an NFPT-certified fitness trainer, I've learned that a healthy diet is one that is balanced. Eating properly means getting the right amount of carbs, fats, and protein. The Paleo Diet totally throws your diet off balance - you get about 20% carbs instead of the recommended 40 to 50%.
- Wild Game
- Oils (the very strict Paleo Dieters do not consider oil as natural)
- Tubers (also a no-no among strict Paleo eaters)
- Wild Grains
