  2. 2. Nourish Your Inner Caveman SECRET #1 THE HEALTHIEST DIET IS THE OLDEST ONE!We all have an inner caveman. The vast majority of us just dont realize it. Page | 2An inner caveman whos craving foods he ate during the prehistoric era. Itprobably contradicts all your stereotypes, but the prehistoric man who livedbefore the advent of agriculture was, in many ways, an extremely fit, athleticperson. Usually, we think “caveman” and we think disease and deprivation.That isnt necessarily so. I cant actually confirm that every caveman had six-packabs, though some authors claim this is so.But they were fit. They walked for long distances in search of big game; theywalked in search of fruits, berries, and nuts. And when the food dwindled in onelocation, they migrated to find a better place to live (a new cave home if you will).As you might have already surmised, this new eating plan Im presenting youreally isnt new at all. In fact, its probably the oldest diet around. Its based onthe theory that the genes we modern humans possess are actually the result of lifeconditions which formed more than a million years ago in our evolution, evenbefore the advent of agriculture.Farming, the cultivation of wheat and other plants, did not even exist untilapproximately 10,000 years ago. The Paleolithic Era, the period from which thiseating plan is derived, ended about 20,000 years ago.We now place those two statements together with the fact that genes takehundreds of thousands of years at a minimum -- and two million years at most --to adapt their metabolism and physiology to different lifestyles. That means werestill working with a system thats more comfortable with a non-agricultural diet.The bottom line is this: the 10,000 years since the advent of farming is not nearlyenough time for our genes to adapt to not only grains, but legumes and dairyproducts. Now you can see why so many people have so many digestive issueswith todays diet. Natural Health Secrets From Your Prehistoric Ancestors
  3. 3. Nourish Your Inner Caveman SECRET #2:YOUR PREHISTORIC ANCESTOR WOULD NOT RECOGNIZE WHAT WE EAT AS FOOD!Sadly, this is true. He would not recognize the boxed pastas, the bags of chips,cheese puffs, and other snack foods as anything he would want to put in his Page | 3mouth.Today, the average American eats 31 percent more processed and packaged foodsthan fresh foods. Can you believe that?In our quest for a convenient rather than a healthy diet, we ignore the additives,flavorings, and colorings -- most of which are artificial -- that are attached tothose convenience foods. Whats the price tag for this convenience?Many nutritionists think its our very health. Are they exaggerating, trying toscare us into a different diet? Or are they prophets warning us to repent and cleanup our dietary act?Its easy to dismiss these dire warnings as merely voices in the woods crying wolf.But the research -- mounting everyday -- tells us we might want to pay someattention to them.Lets just take one example, that of refined white sugar -- not even available toyour prehistoric ancestor. Today, it appears to be a staple of the American diet.Think Im exaggerating? Just read the following statistic. Itll get you thinking alittle deeper about how we eat.The average American consumes (now get this!) between two to three pounds ofsugar in a week. In the last decade -- a short 10 years! -- the consumption ofrefined sugar has increased from approximately 26 pounds per person yearly to awhopping 135! The sad part is, most of us dont even know that were eating thatmuch.And thats only one contributor to our current diet. Multiply these by all the otherfoods and additives, and its no wonder we have a nation of heart problems,diabetes, arthritis, and cancer sufferers!Therefore, one easy way to gain a healthy eating habit is through Paleo dietgrocery list Natural Health Secrets From Your Prehistoric Ancestors
  4. 4. Nourish Your Inner Caveman SECRET #3! THREE MODERN SUCCESS STORIES. . . And what do they eat? Before youre willing to even consider the fact you Page | 4have an inner caveman lurking inside you, you may be hoping that somewheretheres proof this style of eating improves your health.Three separate cultures are coming close to it -- and not surprisingly, they havethe longest lifespan and are among the healthiest people on the planet.No, its definitely not politically correct to call the following three societiesprehistoric. But Ive termed them in this manner because of the diet they eat. Thethree population segments, as diverse as they are, have one factor in common:they all have the longest life spans in the world.Not only that, their populations are virtually unscathed when it comes to sufferingfrom modern degenerative diseases. Who are these people?They are the Sardinians, residents of the Mediterranean island of Sardinia, theOkinawans, who live on the island of Okinawa off the coast of Japan, and areligious group, the Seventh Day Adventists. Each of these groups keeps a low-calorie diet composed primarily of fruits and vegetables.If theres a diet that could be called the polar opposite of the Standard AmericanDiet, then this one may be it. The Okinawans start by eating a minimum of sevenservings of vegetables a day. In addition they eat twoto four servings of fruit.(Are you with me so far?)The group of islanders doesnt strictly follow the caveman pattern, though. Theydo eat some grains, mostly in the form of noodles, bread, and rice -- and justabout all of them are whole grains.The Sardinians and Seventh Day Adventists eat in a similar manner. And as agroup, they not only experience an amazing longevity, but experience very fewdegenerative diseases.According to many nutritionists, eating whole plant foods slows your bodysdigestive processes. This actually helps your body to absorb nutrients moreeffectively. And in the long run, this gives you a more balanced array of vitaminsand minerals.Not only that, but a slow digestive process means your appetite isregulated and your blood sugar remains level.

  5. 5. Nourish Your Inner Caveman SECRET #4: HOW TO NOURISH YOUR INNER CAVEMAN: IF IT COMES IN A BOX, DONT EAT IT! Page | 5Nourishing your inner caveman is one of those great paradoxes of life. Its easy toexplain. The concept is simple to grasp, but actually implementing it in youreveryday life is a little tricky.Not only does it require an entirely new mindset, but it requires some discipline aswell. Lets get started outlining the basics of the plan. First, you inner cavemancant be healthy until you stop eating packaged and processed foods. Basically,theres a very simple rule of thumb at work here: If it comes in a box dont eat it.Right away you know you have to eliminate all packaged and processed foods.Lets just expand on that a moment. That includes all wheat and cereal grains.Basically, were talking about a diet thats rich in fresh fruits and vegetables andscarce on the wheat products. Oh, you know what Im talking about bagels,breads, pastry, donuts, cookies, crackers . . . did I say donuts?Your prehistoric ancestor -- prior to the advent of agriculture -- didnt eat dairyproducts, either. He ate no butter or cheese, drank no milk, ate no yogurt! So, ifyoure planning to adopt this diet, these items need to be on your "eliminationlist." (I told you it would require some discipline.)In addition to the fresh fruits and vegetables, you can eat animal protein. Thatsone food prehistoric man feasted on. But theres a catch (isnt there always?). Itmust be lean meat. You can have pork as long as you choose a lean cut of pork.Eat beef, but only if its lean.Paleolithic nutrition will be good source for you to pick out the right food.In fact, it’s even better if you can find meat that comes from animals that weregrass- and pasture-fed.If all this sounds extremely daunting or intimating to you, its really not. Ideally,your goal is to follow this diet word for word . . . food for food. But if you cantcompletely shed the American Diet Habit, I understand. Instead, considertackling this diet in small steps. Perhaps indulging your inner caveman at just onemeal to start. Make that a habit, then work on other meals.Even a small step takes you closer to a healthier you.
