Figuring Out Your Personal Paleo Code
Dr. Oz invited Chris Kresser on to the show to explain how you can figure out your personal Paleo Code to maximize your weight loss efforts. He said that Paleo Diet consists of the types of foods that our ancestors ate. He said that our ancestors ate mostly meats and plants. He said that processed foods that so many Americans eat have been very detrimental to our health as a society. All processed foods are avoided in this diet plan.
Nell Stephenson appeared on the show (author of Paleoista) and explained what separates the Paleo Diets apart from come and go “fad” diets. Nell said that this diet is balanced and includes lean meats, veggies, and healthy fats.”High Volume Eater” Diet TypeThe High Volume Eater diet type is typically a stress eater who consumes large amounts of food and tends to eat with out thinking of the quantity of food. Fortunately on the Paleo Diet there is no need to count calories since there aren’t any restrictions, as long as you are eating the right foods. The foods that you can each without restrictions are :
- Non Starch Vegetables – These veggies consist of celery, cauliflower, beets, eggplant, cabbage, and many many more.
- Starchy vegetables that contain healthy complex carbs like sweet potatoes, plantains, and yams.
- Health fats – Olive oil, coconut oil, avocados
- Lean proteins – Eggs, pork, lean beef meats, shrimp, salmon, oysters, turkey, etc…
- Full fat dairy (Up to two times per day) – Milk, greek yogurt, butter. You should have small portion sizes of these.
- Eat legumes only 3 times per week – Beans, chickpeas, lentils.
Paleo Code Type #2 – The Cheater
“The Cheater” is a person that have a hard time sticking to their diet plan. The problem usually occurs because there is too much structure that doesn’t allow any flexibility. “The Cheater” type typically craves sweets and is usually a night eater as well. Nell Stephenson said that women fall into this type of category quite often. Here are the Paleo Diet Guidelines for “The Cheater” type.
Eat at every meal – 2/3 of your meal should consist of vegetables. 1/3 protein with a small amount of a healthy fat. You can also have a garnish of fruit to go with your meal.
Breakfast example : 2 eggs over easy. Saute some onions and/or peppers over some greens. Have a side of avocado and some pieces of cantaloupe.
Lunch example : Salmon with a large salad using olive oil dressing. Have a side of berries.
Dinner example – Broccoli with garlic and a lean steak. Have a small fruit as a side serving. They used kiwi as an example.
Allow Yourself 3 Cheat Meals Each Week
If you have been sticking to your diet at each meal you can occasionally have a “cheat meal”. Nell Stephenson said that you could have 3 cheat meals per week. She said that the important thing is to not overdo it when you are having a cheat meal.
