The Paleo Diet Plan

The paleolithic diet (or paleo diet), is also known as the caveman diet, stone age diet and the hunter-gatherer diet. This is a modern diet which aims to improve your health, reduce risk of chronic disease and help with weight loss.

The Paleo diet is based on the idea that our optimal diet should consist of foods which closely match what our early ancestors ate for the majority of their existence, until the very recent transition from hunting and gathering to agriculture.1

Fitium is an online personalised diet plan which takes advantage of some of the core fundamentals of the Paleo Diet and incorporates these into a complete diet plan tailored to your diet goals.

How does the Paleo diet work?

The Paleo diet is based on the idea that our optimal diet should consist of foods which closely match what our early ancestors ate for the majority of their existence.

This is a view which is gaining a lot of traction, especially at a time when considerable research is confirming the link between our modern western diet and increases in incidences of diabetes, obesity, heart disease, osteoporosis, arthritis and cancer which were either non-existent, or rarely occurring.3

How does the Paleo diet work?

In a typical Paleo diet you won’t find any of the following:

  • Cereal grains
  • Legumes
  • Dairy
  • Starches
  • Processed foods
  • Added salt
  • Refined oils

In other words, no potatoes, no rice, no pasta, no flour based foods, no beans, no sweeteners, no cheese and no milk!

Is the Paleo diet healthy?

The paleo diet is founded on these core principles:

  • Prioritising Protein
  • Prioritising Fiber
  • Healthy Omega 3 fats
  • Less Carbs & focus on low GI food
  • More potassium less sodium
  • Nutrient rich foods
  • Cutting out common allergens

Unlike many new diets, the Paleo diet is founded on principles which have been followed by our ancestors for thousands of years, and as far as researchers can tell, did not suffer from our modern western diseases such as obesity, cancer, diabetes or heart disease.1

The Paleo diet is also ideal if you suffer from major food sensitivities, as it cuts out some of the most common inflammation and allergy prone food groups including gluten, dairy, processed foods and sugars.4

Is the Paleo diet for you?

The Paleo diet can bring a lot of health benefits, from improved digestive health, to natural weight loss.

But the Paleo diet has some limitations, for example:

  • It requires a considerable diet and lifestyle changes due to its highly restrictive nature, eliminating many staples you might be used to.
  • It is also important to note that it is not possible to follow the Paleo diet if you are vegetarian or vegan due to the emphasis on animal foods.

But whether or not you follow the full Paleo diet, you will benefit from making some of the changes suggested in this diet.

How does Fitium compare?

Fitium takes advantage of many of the core principles used in the Paleo diet without some of the restrictions which can make it difficult to follow.

But thats not all... Fitium provides additional benefits by incorporating these into a diet plan tailored to your diet goal.

These include:

  • Helping you find the right macronutrient mix so you can lose weight naturally
  • Designing meals that keep you satisfied and cut down on cravings
  • Prioritising foods with high nutrient quality to get important vitamins & minerals
  • Optimising meals to promote fat burn rather than fat storage

Finally, Fitium is not just a diet, but a complete weight loss system tailored to your needs, featuring everything you need to start getting results fast.
