How to “go Paleo” - Easily!
Think of “going Paleo” as returning to your roots- because you are!
The so-called Paleo diet is NOT just that of our primeval ancestors, chasing wooly mammoths with spears and flint knives (although it is that as well!) ... it is the diet of our great grandparents, Pa and Ma Ingalls Wilder in the little house in the big woods. It’s the diet of the cowboys, and the American colonials who revolted from King George in England and set up this great nation. It’s the diet of EVERYONE in our past- the Knights of the Middle ages, the Romans, the Greeks, the Sumerians- it goes ALL THE WAY BACK!
They all ate REAL FOOD! We are the FIRST few generations in HISTORY that have eaten... LARGELY PURE UNADULTERATED CRAP!
Sorry to be so graphic, but the processed stuff we ingest today is hardly worth being called food!
Things were not that horribly bad even 40 years ago... by the 1980’s and 1990’s, processed fake food like substances from factories and labs and fast food “engineers” and food flavor chemical “scientists” had reached the point that, through marketing and political lobbying- they got increasingly huge subsidies for modified GRAINS that were not even natural foods anymore! AND the government and the FDA and the ridiculous Food Pyramid and now My Plate all followed in lockstep, telling us all to _
“Just Eat Lots of this Crap! Real food is dangerous! Eat heart healthy GMO grains and plastic margarine, put chemically extracted oils on everything, and drink lots of skimmed (nutritionally barren sugar water) milk- ALL WILL BE WELL!
Well, we’ve by and large followed this rotten advice for 50- 60 years, progressively getting more and more behind the whole idea, reinforced by the AMA and the ADA actually BACKING it...
And, as a nation, and increasingly as a WORLD-
WE ARE GETTING FATTER, SICKER, MORE RIDDLED WITH TOTALLY PREVENTABLE DISEASES LIKE DIABETES, DEPRESSION, HEART DISEASE, AND CANCER, THAT HARDLY EXISTED 100 YEARS AGO!!
What should we do?
“Go Paleo, young man! (or Woman)!
It may seem overwhelming to overturn a lifetime of brainwashing.
But never fear! PaleoJay is here!!
The best thing to do is to go to www.paleojay.com I will always try to steer you right, my friend...
But, to my mind, PODCASTS are the single best way to “reconfigure your marketing/manipulated brain” back into reality! Think of them as a way, whilst you are driving, walking, working around the yard or walking, to GET YOUR MIND BACK IN SYNC WITH YOUR ANCESTORS! Also, to get up to date with the real RESEARCH that is out there, since the powers-that-be only try to hush all of that up-
THE TRUTH WILL SET YOU FREE!
I will give you here a list of podcasts (and they all have accompanying blogs, as well!), that will give you ample information to REFORMAT YOU MIND from the BIG BROTHER SWILL you have been fed since birth, by the government, Big Ag, Big Pharma, and Big Advertising...
I suggest you just, even if you are now doubtful, just LISTEN to what they all have to say. Over time, I think you will gradually be convinced, because the SCIENCE all backs up what they say, and your own common sense will evaluate, and realize TRUTH when you hear it. SO, here are your Podcasts to listen to: This can be your new “commuting hobby!” (Or other task-oriented activity wherein your mind was previously wasted...)
