The Ultimate Paleo Diet Food ListThis fresh look at Paleolithic and ancestral diets can take modern hunter-gatherer tribes under consideration. Recently there have been debates whether legumes, starches, and dairy products have a place in a paleolithic diet. For once, I'll condition my opinion relating to this matter. I've always viewed the paleolithic diet more as a conceptual platform and not much as a you-need-to-eat-THIS-and-avoid-THAT-at-all-costs-or-you-will-die. There is no magic pixie dirt in the food categories that are represented in the paleo diet.
Each author's recommendations for the Paleo diet are somewhat different, so there is certainly some room for individual interpretation. For instance, in Audette's e book, he prohibits all drinks other than water, tea, and smaller amounts of juice, and specifically prohibits espresso and liquor. Cordain, on the other side, says beverages other than drinking water should be consumed in moderation, and allows coffee, tea, diet soda, and even liquor in moderation.
I'm just looking for a few advice on how I should deal with paleo with low blood circulation pressure. My BP seems to be naturally low all of the time which means I get diziness several times everyday and can be susceptible to fainting if I'm not careful. I haven't worked out why my BP is low, but it is definitely like this. I have already been on low calorie diets in the past that were designed to give me all the nutrients I want with few calories from fat. and I ended up in trouble with dizziness, fainting and finally taken to clinic (even though others who were on the same diet were fine).
Herbal tea is allowed on the Paleo Diet - green tea extract specifically. Dr. Cordain recommends that enthusiasts of the Paleo Diet avoid caffeine containing drinks, so regular tea is out. Green tea contains smaller amounts of caffeine, but it addittionally provides beneficial antioxidants which make it an acceptable drink if you're following the Paleo Diet. Dr. Cordain advises that you neglect caffeine, however, because the high caffeine content isn't good for your system. He declares on his website that level of caffeine stimulates your nervous system, inhibits normal sleep habits and can give you a frustration. Technically, decaffeinated caffeine isn't on the list of acceptable drinks but many people who follow the Paleo Diet drink this version as they make the transition to a Paleo lifestyle.
Milton: While I don't know what the paleo diet is, what I do know is that if you're talking about seeking to eat unprocessed foods, a higher percentage of fruits and vegetables, and only the maximum amount of dog source as you need to meet necessary protein and essential amino acid requirements, then that is clearly a good diet, especially if you get yourself up and around for one hour every day out in the fresh air.
