For some of you this may come as a surprise, because, YES! A Paleo Eating Plan can be very good for your heart.
The #1 cause of heart disease is not about eating fat, nor about your cholesterol level. You should know that the #1 cause of all cardiovascular disease is from eating too many refined carbs (sugar) and having elevated blood sugar levels.
A Paleo eating plan can be a great way to cut out refined carbs and get your blood sugar levels to normal.
But many people trying to follow a Paleo eating plan are getting it dead wrong. Paleo doesn’t mean just eating more meat, and skipping all foods made with grain. The problem is most commercially produced meats and poultry products today are loaded with hormones, pesticides, and chemicals. These nasty by-products are deadly. They increase your inflammation, your risk for cancer, and accelerated aging. And if you miss out on eating fiber, you will hurt your heart even if you skip the refined carbs.
To do a Paleo program right, you’d need to only eat “clean” animal protein (wild fish, grass-fed, organic beef, and organic-cage-free poultry). Plus, just as important, you need to eat lots of vegetables (3-5 cups per day), fruits (1-2 pieces per day), and 1-2 handfuls of nuts every day. Especially for your heart, and unlike most Paleo plans, I also include a daily portion of beans (1/2 to 1 cup cooked). So from my perspective eating more Paleo would mean you are eating more clean protein, vegetables, fruits, beans, and nuts.
But how do you do this and make it easy? That is the challenge, and I have great news because a colleague and friend of mine has a new book out that shows you how to make following a Paleo eating plan simple.
This is why TODAY I’m excited to share with you the Part-Time Paleo Starter Kit [Link], from my friend, NY Times best-selling author and nutritionist Leanne Ely.
