So, there have been some pretty crazy diet plans out there that promise a healthier lifestyle with great weight loss potential. Among these crazy ones is the 30 Day Paleo Challenge, which has a diet consisting of the consumption of foods that our prehistoric ancestors may have once consumed. The diet consists of the modern interpretations of some of the food that was consumed during the paleolithic era. The diet focuses on some pretty natural foods like fish, and meats that come from grass fed animals. You are prohibited to eat stuff with refined salt and sugars as well as bread, potatoes, and stuff with unnatural oils. The diet literally involves you consuming stuff you would either have to hunt for or gather. The diet also requires that you do some semi intensive workout throughout the diet to balance out your caloric intake. Seems like a challenge, but some critics think that the paleo diet may also be a fad diet, or at least a very inefficient one. Some critics argue that the lack of research into the diet leave several questions regarding long-term health risks since you’re cutting off certain foods such as dairy products. Another issue is the fact that it is extremely difficult to replicate a “true” paleo diet with modern foods since a lot of what we have is processed in one way or another. Truly lean meats and natural veggies are very expensive to get too, so trying this diet out will require that you are willing to burn a couple of extra bucks to get what you want.
