Paleolithic (Hunter/Gatherer) Health & Fitness
Posting Access:
All Members , Moderated
Dedicated to exploring the aspects of hunting and gathering that made our ancestors strong.

The Paleo_health community's purpose is to share about and explore the components of health and wellness practiced by our hunter/gatherer ancestors including:
- with few or no grains and sugars
- high in non-starchy vegetables, especially green, leafy vegetables
- moderately high in seasonal fruits
- rich in animal products and fats (preferably from naturally raised, organic animals)
- that includes nuts and seeds
- low in liquid vegetable and polyunsaturated oils (not those occurring naturally in vegetables)

FITNESS- Short bursts of heavy exercise interspersed w/periods of rest- with individual workouts lasting no more than 20-30 minutes including rest periods. The number of workouts per day are limitless.

EXPOSURE TO SUNLIGHT- Regular exposure to the suns rays with little or no UV block

SLEEP CYCLES- Sleeping with the darkness and rising with the sun

(ie: cholesterol myths, low-carb, saturated fat, etc.) If the article doesn't offer specific "sharing" options please post a link, rather than the entire article, in order to respect copyrights. When doing this, please share a relevant quote from the article and any summary or comment you wish.
