The Primal-Paleo Lifestyle

bannerHi there, welcome again. Hope you are enjoying this site and getting helpful information from it.

Today I’m going to write about the Primal Lifestyle.  As a mention in the “The Primal-Paleo Lifestyle” page, this lifestyle is like going back to basics without losing the comforts of our modern world.  This lifestyle incorporates three main components: Diet, Exercise and Mindfulness.

Now let me try to break these down for you.



This healthy diet will incorporate well sourced, organic and whole, unprocessed food such as fresh vegetables and leafy greens, grass-fed meat, pasture raised free-range poultry, wild-caught fish, and pesticide-free nuts and fruits on occasion. This lifestyle is all about combining these fresh and awesome ingredients in ways that create a phenomenal meal the not only taste great but also stimulates our metabolism to guarantee we get the best nutritional value to fuel our body and brain with the abundance of energy we need to optimize our daily lives.



Exercise is important, but to make sure we are getting the right amount is also equally important. We also need to be enjoying what we do,  If we are not enjoying it, we will not be able to stick to the routines. By exercising we are not referring to just hitting the weights or the treadmill, we mean moving your body physically in ways that are enjoyable to you.  This could include Yoga, walking the dog kicking the ball in the park, swimming or even the weights and the treadmill.  Just make sure to move in way that are entertaining and enjoyable to you.  Remember to include rest days in between because the recovery part is also very important.



Good nutrition and adequate exercise leads to a health tummy. a happy brain, and a strong heart. Fuel your body in a way that would support you doing what you love, be it work, moving, resting or playing. The primal lifestyle is about being positive mindfully aware of where your food is coming from and respectful of not only ourselves but of others and our environment. To adapt the Primal way is to obtain a lifestyle that will help you achieve a healthier and happier life so that you can be the best you can be every day.

Hopefully this will serve as and introduction to the Primal-Paleo Lifestyle and will awake your curiosity to learn more and adopt the lifestyle of our ancestors.
