PALEO Cleanse: Best Practices

Standard

It’s hard to believe that PALEO Cleanse has been on the market for over 10 months now!

To all who have read it and supported us, we are forever grateful.

For those of you embarking on your PALEO Cleanse journey, or perhaps redoing it, here are our top 5 all-time best practices:

1. Prepare ahead of time – you’ll be less likely to cheat if you have plenty of good pre-made food options on hand.

2. Carry snacks with you at all times – then there is no excuse for a quick stop at the donut shop!

3. Drink plenty of water – you are about 60% water and your body needs replenishment, plus drinking water helps your body get rid of toxins more quickly.

4. Carry the book/meal plans with you – use the book as your guide and your support–it’s there to help you get through the Cleanse and includes numerous tips to help you along your way.

5. Understand the basic principles of PALEO and review the PALEO FAQ section in the book – beginning with a clear goal in mind and a good foundation on the benefits of Ancestral eating will help you through those tougher times. Confidence and commitment are key–we know you can do it–we did!

And as always if you ever run into questions or want to find out about substituting an ingredient, or if you just want to say “Hi”, we’re here to answer your questions and help you along the way.

Here’s to you!

PALEO Cleanse: Summer Solution

Standard

We know that biting into a big juicy piece of steak while your friends are picking away at a tiny summer salad always makes for a table turner. Nobody can ever get over just how much we eat, but the fact is, if you eat the foods that our human digestive system can easily breakdown, you can eat a whole lot more than you ever thought (without the guilt).

But we know it’s summer–the season of more outdoor time and a whole lot less clothing–and we all want to look our very best. The good news is that gone are the days of heavily restricted eating, calorie counting, liquid diets etc. The world has finally figured out that by following a diet similar to our Ancestors, we can happily eat solid, seemingly fatty foods and still look dashing!

In PALEO Cleanse we walk you through 30-Days of Paleo eating with customizable weekly meal plans that are easy to make but delicious and varied enough to keep you from getting bored. It’s a great way to detox this summer without deprivation dieting. Plus, most people drop pounds, enjoy clearer skin and more toned bodies after just a few weeks on the Cleanse.

So now, when everyone is salivating at the grass-fed steak you are happily devouring you can think to yourself, “you need a copy of PALEO Cleanse”! 😉

Battle of the Omegas

http://www.msdietforwomen.com/calming-your-immune-omega-3-6
Standard

It seems to have been commonly accepted that omegas, despite their high natural fat content, are necessary for human health.

Our bodies don’t produce these fatty acids naturally, so we need to get adequate amounts from food in order for our cells to function. What is still in question however, and what surfaces more and more with the growing amount of vegetable oils on our shelves and in our food, is the question of the appropriate omega 3 to omega 6 ratio.

What’s the difference between omega 3 and omega 6?

Both are polyunsaturated fats, also known as fatty acids. Omega 3 is primarily found in fish, such as salmon and tuna, as well as in walnuts and flaxseed. Omega 3 aids the body with blood thinning and reduces inflammation. Omega 6 comes largely as linoleic acid from plant sources, such as corn oil, soybean oil and sunflower oil. Omega 6 helps with blood thickening and immune response. Both fatty acids are vital components of the human diet, however, due to the large amount of vegetable oil, processed food and candy that contain high doses of omega 6, the average American is getting a much greater amount of omega 6 than necessary, and too little omega 3.

Why is the omega 3 to omega 6 ratio important?

Because each of the omegas have opposite functions, a healthy body relies on a balance of both fatty acids. An excess of omega 6, so common in the Western diet, is thought to be directly related to the increase of diseases like asthma, heart disease and cancer, and attributing to the alarming rise of obesity and depression.

What are a few easy ways to ensure I maintain a good omega 3 to omega 6 ratio?

  • Eat grass-fed beef
  • Eat wild-caught fish
  • Eat flax seeds
  • Eat walnuts
  • Eat olive oil
  • Avoid all vegetable oils
  • Avoid fast food
  • Avoid industrial food
  • Avoid candy

Here’s to a healthier You!
