An Easy Shopping List for The Paleo Diet

The decision is made: you want to change your diet. but how does it continue? What should you eat from now on and above all: What should you buy now? What should land in the shopping basket in the future? Especially a diet like the Stone Age diet raises additional questions for many people: If the cereal disappears in all its forms, can I still eat anything at all? Here are answers to all these questions.

Is stone-age nutrition one-sided?

»No bread, no rice, no noodles: Those who eat so one-sidedly lose weight in the short term because they restrict their energy intake through food bans, « says Professor Holtmeier, chief physician of the Hospital for Gastroenterology, Diabetology and Internal Medicine at the Hospital Porz am Rhein. That stone-age nutrition or the abandonment of cereal products results in a one-sided diet, reads and hears more often. It is difficult to understand this assessment, because in this approach, just a food from the diet falls: cereals. There remain: Countless types of vegetables and fruits, as well as salads, nuts, mushrooms and of course the entire range of animal products.

To speak of these alternatives when eliminating grain from one-sided nutrition, one would have to go out of a basically limited food supply – such as bread with nut nougat cream, jam or sugar syrup. It seems more than just the diet widespread in the West, so bread for breakfast, pasta for lunch and pizza for dinner (ie cereals, cereals and cereals) a one-sided diet.

Which foods are allowed?

A disturbing question. There is no law that prescribes or prohibits the consumption of certain foods. What is eaten is up to each person. A nutritional concept or a diet can only ever make recommendations. Every consumer must not only, he must decide for himself what he eats and what he renounces. The use of the term allowed in this context is a worrying trend that jeopardizes a healthy eating culture.

What foods does the Paleo diet recommend?

Many consumers want firm plans and regulations despite (or because of) their freedom. Lists that they can stick to, that make them decide to eat. With original taste, there is already a Paleo diet plan, but who would like to have a list when shopping, will be served in the following.
