The Paleo Diet

The paleo or ‘caveman diet’ as it has also become known as, is a diet focused on pure, wholesome and unprocessed foods.  Paleo is all about going back to basics and consuming foods that our hunter gatherer ancestors would have eaten thousands of years ago. Colourful vegetables, fish, meat, eggs, fruits and healthy fats all take centre stage on this diet- bursting with rich nutrition, but also delicious! Why does it work? By excluding all processed foods as part of the Paleo diet, you will only eat nutrition-dense foods.  The diet combines decreased carbs and sugar, more so than in other diets and this helps regulate metabolism and blood sugars.  By eliminating processed foods you will also benefit from better digestion and reduce bloating.  All of these changes in your diet will help burn stored body fat in a natural and sustainable way.

Sugar Detox

Going through a sugar detox has endless health benefits.   This type of diet eliminates added sugars and focuses on reducing cravings. By excluding all added sugars as part of the detox you only eat nutrition-rich foods which are immediately beneficial for your health and well-being.  An increase in protein, healthy fats, complex carbs and veggies is key to going sugar free. Why does it work? Did you know that sugar is an addictive substance?  In fact,  about 10%  of the US population are true sugar addicts, according to experts.  By reducing sugar, a carbohydrate, you reduce the amount of carbs turning into fat in the body. You also see more stable blood sugar levels, which decreases hunger and cravings for more sugary foods and stops you gaining weight. While it might be difficult to sustain a sugar-free diet, it’s a great way to cleanse the body and pave the way for a more long-term diet like clean eating.
