Cats Explain The Paleo Diet

A Yabba Dabba Doo Time.

1. The premise is simple: Live like a Caveman.

A caveman with a house and a smartphone, that is.

2. Only eat what you could hunt or gather in the wild.

Whole Foods on a Sunday afternoon doesn’t count.

3. Avoid anything that requires cultivated farming or processing.

Ain’t nobody got time for that, when you’re a nomadic caveman.

4. Our bodies haven’t evolved to properly digest those complex foods.

Gluten? Lactose? There’s a reason people are so gosh-darn intolerant these days.

5. Enjoy eating lots of fruits, vegetables, lean meat, nuts and seeds, and seafood!

Basically, anything you can eat raw or cook with a fire.

6. Avoid grains, refined dairy, starches, legumes, or processed sugars.

7. Eat when you’re hungry. Don’t eat when you’re not.

Seems obvious, but also means rethinking that breakfast-lunch-dinner model.

8. Get plenty of natural sunlight!

Vitamin D, baby.

9. Move around a lot at a slow pace.

And vary your exercise. Sprint once in a while, like you were being chased by a mastodon. Lift heavy things, like boulders or mastodons.

10. Sleep when it’s dark. Work when it’s light.

Allow your body to develop a natural sleep cycle, and minimize the use of artificial lighting.

11. You’ll be fit and healthy in no time!

Go get ‘em, tiger.
