My doctor says we can all live off the fat of the land. If you are like me you can stand to loose a few pounds. My doctor always tells me that we can all live off the fat of the land as he pats his stomach.
Step 1: Fresh Vegetables are an essential part of the Cave Man DietEat fresh not canned or processed vegetables. Vegetables are another source of essential vitamins and minerals. Beta Carotene in Carrots helps your eyes. Lycopene in tomatoes helps your immune system.
Vegetables are our number 1 source of water soluble vitamins and fiber to aid digestion. Vegetables also have a slower release sugars and starches which must be converted into sugars to help maintain a more stable blood sugar levels in the body.
Step 2: Fresh fruits are another essential part of a Cave Man Diet so as part of a healthy diet you should eat plenty of fresh fruits.
Step 3: Whole grains are a must with the Cave Man DietUse whole grains instead of processed flour whenever possible.
Avoid heavily processed foods and foods containing white flour, bleached or unbleached doesn't matter if you are to do well on the Cave Man Diet you must avoid processed grains!
Step 4: Eat more lean meat varieties.
Since Cave Men had to hunt for their food and their primary meat items were animals that had grown accustomed to being chased down and eaten instead of standing idally by grazing while waiting there for someone to just come by and take a bite.... the animals had to be fast and this means lean.
Fat Corn fed beef is out... since Cave men did not have access to such a high fat and unhealthy choice for their stone age tables.
It is higher in protein, lower in Cholesterol and has better nutrition for you, than commercially raised farm animals. The modern day cave man must be more careful in their meat selections than our cave dwelling cousins did.
Step 5: Drink more water!
Cave men did not have the luxury of juices , they also did not have access to Soda, Beer, Coffee or many other beverages, they drank WATER. Drink at least 8 glasses of water a day.
If you feel hungry, drink a glass of water and then follow step 6.
Step 6: Eat when you are hungry!
Cave men did not eat by the clock and neither should we!
Step 7: So you wake up in the morning and pop that piece of toast in the toaster and slather it with butter... WHAT??? NO!
Get up and get active. When you wake up in the morning, take a walk then once you have worked up an appetite, then you can eat a healthy breakfast.
12:00 lunch time...
Take another walk or do aerobic exercise before eating. Get that heart pumping then, sit down to lunch when you are hungry. If you are not hungry... Don't eat wait till you are hungry, go exercise then eat.5PM dinner time!
Nope, again if you do not exercise you can NOT eat! Do not eat just because it is dinner time... Eat when you are hungry, stop when you are satisfied, NOT FULL!In Conclusion;Modern Day Cave Men have far too many food choices. Take a tip from our cave dwelling ancestors and stay healthy
Avoid fatty meats... A Cave Man ate Prey, prey ran for their lives! Eat grains in moderation. Fruits should also be eaten in moderation.
Avoid juices, you get more nutrition and the benefit of a fuller stomach by eating the whole food
