What Role does Fruit play in a Paleo Whole Foods Diet?

July 6, 2016

Although some may think that the Paleo Diet is a new fad, it has actually been around since the 1970s. It was conceived by gastroenterologist Walter Voegtlin with the idea that Paleolithic ancestors, who lived in a range of time from 2.5 million to 10,000 years ago, could teach modern humans how to eat healthy. Here at Froozer®, we understand the importance of whole foods diet education. We know there are lots of different diets promoted these days, and we want to keep you informed. We are committed to, not only information, but also to presenting natural products for your good health.

What is the Paleo Diet?  
The Paleo Diet – also known as the Stone Age, Caveman, or Ancient Diet – is an attempt to replicate the diet of humans of the Paleolithic age. These ancient hunter-gatherers lived before agriculture and subsisted on lean proteins.

The Paleo diet is said to improve health by providing balanced and complete nutrition while avoiding most processed and refined foods and empty calories. It is a nutrient-dense whole foods diet based on eating a variety of quality meat, seafood, eggs, vegetables, fruits, nuts, and seeds. 

Paleo Foods

The Paleo diet is a plant-based diet, with two thirds or more of the diet coming from plants and only one third from animals. Meat consumption is endorsed, because it provides vital nutrients not obtainable from plant sources. Choosing grass-fed or pasture-raised meat, wild-caught seafood, and local organic fruits and vegetables whenever possible is encouraged.

By focusing on as many different whole foods as possible, it’s easier to achieve sufficient and synergistic quantities of all the nutrients – potentially even some that haven’t been discovered. A variety of different foods supplies a variety of different nutrients. 

Health Benefits

Proponents believe that because providing the body with the essential nutrients that it needs to be healthy forms the basis of the Paleo diet, every system in the human body is positively affected by this approach to food. Clinicals demonstrate that a Paleo diet can improve cardiovascular disease risk factors, reduce inflammation, improve glucose tolerance, help with weight loss, and can even improve autoimmune diseases.

It focuses on the most nutrient-dense foods available and eliminates foods that can contribute to hormone dis-regulation, inflammation, and gut dysbiosis (where the bacteria in your gut are the wrong kinds, wrong diversity, wrong numbers, and/or in the wrong part of the gastrointestinal tract). It’s also great for weight normalization, meaning that overweight people tend to lose weight, and underweight people tend to gain weight. The Paleo diet reduces inflammation and supports normal functioning of the immune system, hormones, gut and gut barrier, and the liver.
