Are The Ingredients Of The Paleo Diet the Magic, or Is It What Is Not Eaten?

     The Paleo, or Caveman, diet is followed by many looking to lose weight, rectify digestive disorders, and to maintain good health and prevent illnesses.   One of the premises behind the diet is the use of food staples that were used by early human ancestors and those ingredients, because our body is accustomed to the foods, will be able to digest easier and keep us healthy.   With the advent of better food storage and preparation, refrigeration, mobility of food all over the earth,  we've added ingredients in those processes that our body has not evolved to for digestion.   Humans, like all evolutionary creatures, evolve over time to adapt to the environment and the adaptive process enables all living creatures to continue to live and propogate, that including our digestive system.

 

 

    Often we can use our daily food intake to avoid illness as many believe the best "medicine cabinet" is found in your garden or produce cabinet in your refrigerator.   Hypothroidism is often referred to as the most undiagnosed disease in the U.S. and menopausal age women tend to be more prone to it.   If you suffer from lethargy, overweight or recurring episodes of depression then you may want to see your dietician and doctor to rule out hypothroidism.   The below guide is intended to help you choose foods that will minimize the occurrence and help you stay healthy.  

   There is some concern that cooking may reduce the chemical aspects of goitrogenic foods you see listed below however the term "cooking" is relative to boiling, baking, parbroiling so use good judgment in determing the best preparatory mehods for your menu.
