Listening to your body and including the Paleo and Primal food philosophy in your lifestyle is not as hard as you might think but attempting it may reap positive rewards for your health! Eat good & feel good!

Basic Principle

In general, good health can be achieved by eating the right foods and cutting out the processed foods loaded with knowingly harmful ingredients. These days, with all the marketing labels, special offers and gimmicks, do we even know what these are? Our Paleosophy narrows this down and focuses on cutting out specific types of ingredients and food:

  • Unhealthy grains (i.e. wheat, oats and corn) besides being very high carb, usually consumed in a processed, acellular form, they are commonly contaminates with Roundup. In the UK at least Roundup, one of Monsanto's flagship products is frequently used to boost wheat yields just days before harvest.
  • Refined sugars (i.e. white sugar, brown sugar, corn syrup and cane sugar) associated with many health disorders. Sugar goes by at least 61 different names on your food labels, it's not uncommon to see several names in a single ingredient list.
  • Vegetable oils (i.e. sunflower oil, rapeseed oil and canola oil) which are usually loaded with highly toxic trans-fat. It's no secret that vegetable oils are not made from vegetables, they're made from grains and seeds. There are many potential problems with vegetable oils, some issue arise from cooking or storage, but even fresh, pure are raw these oils unbalance your omega 3 : omega 6 intake ratio. All PUFAs (polyunsaturated fatty acids) oxidise very easily, heat from cooking accelerates this process considerably.

You may want to limit dairy & legumes.

Nowadays, many mainstream products contain some, or all, of these listed ingredients. From gluten-free bread, to low fat crisps, to 'healthy' pre-packaged ready meals, you'll see these ingredients in one form or another. I am sure you are already aware that processed foods are unhealthy, but what about the foods claiming to be healthy? If you're not already doing it, it's time to learn to read the ingredients under the ingredients label. We encourage you to read the ingredients before making your choice because packaging is often misleading. But if in doubt, use our Paleosophy principles as guidance, then develop your own understanding and be an informed shopper.
