Started on a Couch 2 5K plan and after 9 weeks was easilyrunning for 30 minutes. I can now run 15 km with relative easy. I found however, and this is notreally a surprise, that my few kilos of excess weight was not really disappearing. The fitnessindustry rants on about how long aerobic sessions are the way to lose weight. It helps butresistance training and modifications to ones eating habits really do the trick.I did some research on the web and came across Loren Cordains book, The Paleo Diet. Ordereda copy, liked what I read and duly started to follow the pattern.Ive always been interested in health, fitness and why modern humans succumb to so muchillness, disease, obesity, allergies etc. It turns out that we are Stone-Age people living in a modernworld of processed food, laziness, poor work environments etc. The human genome has onlychanged 0.02% in the last 40 thousand years. Those people, of which we are the offspring ate adiet consisting mainly of meat, vegetables, nuts and fruit. They may have eaten some grass seeds(of which wheat is a modern version), but only in very small quantities. Modern use of grains didntstart until 10 thousand years ago with the first farms in the Middle East.So, modern humans are eating foods that the human body has not evolved to eat. Werepoisoning ourselves and shortening our lives. Appreciated, ancient people probably had shorterlifespans, but they were lean and athletic, able to chase animals for long distances. We as modernhumans should embrace the diet of old and take advantage of the modern developments inmedicine to allow ourselves to live long healthy lives. Its amazing how many people get into theirlate 60s and for them life is nearly over. Their muscles waste, the stoop, their demeanor is that ofa beaten person heading towards death. This is not the way it should be.The Paleo diet revolves around eating lean meat, fruit and vegetables (not root or starchy veggies)with each meal. Eggs are allowed as are nuts and small amounts of dried fruit. Grains, pulse anddairy are all out. You can have a cheat meal or two per week, but if you have a lot of weight tolose, Id restrict that to just one. Drink plenty of water. Id advise using a program like Fitday (free)to monitor all you eat for a couple of weeks to make sure you are getting the calories and nutrientsyou need. After that just go with the flow.I eat a lot of stir frys and love them, curries can be made easily. There is wealth of recipesavailable online, and the book also has plenty.I will write another article soon going more into depth about how I eat, but I have lost 7 kg withease over the last 3 months, I was only 7 my desired weight so it was easy. If youre a lot bigger,the weight will shift with ease.
Take a look at the book, consult your doctor if you think you need to, and enjoy easy weight losswith out the hunger.Steve has been writing articles for nearly 4 years and is passionate about health, fitness andtravel.
