I’ve experimented with diet in the past, notably here where I tried and failed miserably at going vegetarian for a month.
Paleo Diet (also known as Paleolithic or Primal) is a diet that is really popular among Crossfit athletes and I happen to be a member of a Crossfit gym where I live, so I’ve been getting pretty heavy exposure to it for about a year. I decided to give Paleo a serious look and I’m happy to report that I’ve been doing it for about 2 months now at a decent level and with interesting results.
Paleo is basically the following:
- Emphasizes lean meats (fish, fowl, lean red meat, pork, etc)
- Removes bread, pasta, rice, cereal, beans, and anything with gluten in it
- Most carbs come from fruits and vegetables, but carbs are de-emphasized.
- Pretty much a clean diet, so cuts out anything that is chemical heavy and high fructose corn syrup. Thus, no soda, candy, and generally no mass produced condiments.
