Hope, Healing and WellBeing – Paleoista: The Diet You Were Born to Eat

This week’s guest, Nell Stephenson, is author of “Paleoista: Gain Energy, Get Lean and Feel Fabulous with the Diet You Were Born to Eat”. As a nutritionist, Nell is committed to teaching people how to eat real foods for good health and weight loss. The Paleo diet is increasing in popularity as a healthy way to eat, more than just a diet. The Paleo diet recommends that we eat the food the ‘cavemen’ ate, including fresh vegetables, wild fish, grass-fed beef and healthy fats. Nell discusses how fruits and vegetables have more fiber than wheat products, which are not recommended on this diet. This is a sustainable food plan that is how are “genetically meant to be eating.” Eating this way leads to optimal health, being fit, and healthy skin.

A “paleoista” eats no refined foods, plans her meals in advance, and only consumes “real food,” which is healthier than supplements. In addition, she recommends taking a fish oil supplement. Protein, vegetables and fruit are recommended at every meal. She ends the interview with sharing tips for keeping kitchens healthy and clean. For more information please visit http://paleoista.com/
