There are a number of factors that you have to consider when putting together a weight loss diet. An understanding of the main food groups is an important step. There are three main food groups, complex carbohydrates (rice, pasta, bread, oats, noodles, potatoes, and so on). Complex carbohydrates are an energy food source. The body turns carbohydrates into glycogen and then stores this in the muscles and the liver for body to use as fuel. Too much carbohydrates in your diet can lead to a fat and water weight gain.

Fat (butter, oils, lard, whipping cream, animal fats). Fat again is a fuel source used by the body. Gram for gram, fat has more calories in it than complex carbohydrates and protein. Too much fat in your diet can lead to a gain in weight. Protein, (chicken, fish, meat, turkey, eggs, milk, cheese, and so on). Protein is used by the body for growth and repair. Protein is not an energy source.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Caveman Diet? What in the world is a "Caveman Diet"?

A Caveman Diet or better yet known as the Paleo Diet is a diet wherein you basically eat like a caveman. No sugary foods and processed foods. Cavemen did not have hotdogs for lunch or a bag of crisps for snack time. They had to hunt for their own meat. In its most basic definition, a caveman diet is a diet where you just eat meat, nuts, fruits, vegetables and drink water; LOTS of water!

If you remember in your history book in school you may have seen cavemen pictures most probably. If you notice, the cavemen are really muscular and if you give them a little makeover then they would look like superior ramp models! That's something for you to think about. They have very fit bodies because they don't sit around watching TV all day or use a computer 10 hours a day and eat junk food.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
