Paleo Diet

My skin has been terrible at the moment and we didn't know what to do, i had been on medication but I kept forgetting to take it so it wasn't working. Then mum came across something called the Paleo Diet. "The paleo diet  is based upon eating wholesome, contemporary foods from the food groups our hunter-gatherer ancestors would have thrived on during the Paleolithic era, the time period from about 2.6 million years ago to the beginning of the agricultural revolution, about 10,000 years ago. These foods include fresh meats (preferably grass-produced or free-ranging beef, pork, lamb, poultry, and game meat, if you can get it), fish, seafood, fresh fruits, vegetables, seeds, nuts, and healthful oils (olive, coconut, avocado, macadamia, walnut and flaxseed). Dairy products, cereal grains, legumes, refined sugars and processed foods were not part of our ancestral menu" this seemed like a challenge but i was willing to give it a go. This week we sort of tried some different things and it was really hard, we are gathering paleo recipes and ideas and I will properly start next week. It takes around 3-4 weeks for your body to adapt to the change but apparently it had amazing results. I am not doing this for weight loss, I am doing it for my skin but I am also doing jogging and biking and swimming when it gets warmer, exercise is really good for your health.
