The Paleo Diet Controversy

The Paleo Diet Controversy

The word Paleo is big these days. It’s everywhere on TV, the internet, and unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ve probably even heard your mom talk about it. There are books, DVD’s and tons of blogs out there about the Pale diet. It has been endorsed by celebrities and others who have now become “experts” in the field of Paleo.

With all of the attention on this diet/lifestyle, there are bound to be naysayers. As with any newly popular diet, there are those who will inevitably decry it as a passing fad or another thinly veiled attempt at getting rich quick. Paleo is garnishing a lot of attention and whenever something becomes so popular so fast there is almost always going to be controversy surrounding it.

There are so many people that have tried this diet that it is hard to say too many negative things about it. People can’t get enough of living “Paleo.” People are swearing by the Paleo diet because it is so much different than all the other diets out there today. People are feeling healthier, stronger, and healing from illnesses. It is changing a lot of people’s lives. It almost seems too good to be true.

The healthy food movement (in any form) has been gearing up for years now. While organic may have been something only “hippies” bought years ago, these days just about everyone pays attention to what’s put on and in their food. Most people also check food labels making sure there isn’t any HFCS or preservatives in whatever they’re buying.  If these are things you do, then you are probably already eating Paleo without even realizing it.

Paleo is simply a trendy word for trying to eat foods as they are found in nature versus foods that have been manipulated or so highly processed that they are no longer recognizable. Some people might call this clean eating. The big misconception of the Paleo diet is that people who eat Paleo eat mostly meat, and that simply isn’t true. Fruits and vegetables are a big part of the Paleo diet (the biggest) and meat (lean and fatty) make up a smaller portion. People who eat Paleo aren’t afraid of healthy fats, and that scares people.

If you are unfamiliar with Paleo, you may be wondering how this diet will fit in with your family, especially if you have children, have no fear though. Think about the children who lived 100, or 200, or even a thousand years ago. What did they eat? They ate what their parents ate. And, no, there was no pizza delivery or fast-food restaurant nearby. Children were forced to eat what was put before them. None of this real food for the adults and hot dogs and mac/cheese for the kids. If you eat this way in your house, your children will follow along.

Some people don’t believe in forcing their children to eat healthy foods. But, keep in mind the obesity problem that is rampant these days. If you start your family eating healthy fruits and vegetables along with healthy meats as suggested by the Paleo diet, they will thank you when they get older.

How to you classify your diet? Paleo? Clean? Something else?
