FOOD FOR THOUGHT

 

 

 

Paleo Diet Food List

 

Many people are turning to principles of the Paleo Diet for optimizing health.  Once a favorite of athletes, this particular eating lifestyle has been the answer for many to nagging questions like "why can't I lose weight?", "how can I stop my carbohydrate cravings?", "I'm eating a vegetarian diet, but why am I so tired", or "how can I boost my metabolism?".  It's worth considering if losing body fat, gaining muscle, and working out are your health goals.
