Nowadays, the typical western diet is very high in carbohydrates.
The problem is that the body can only store a small amount of carbohydrates so that they are ready to be used as fast energy (because your body is designed to live in an environment where there are very few carbohydrates).
Paleo diets aid in reducing the consumption of processed carbohydrates (not only processed sugar but also cultivated grains, including whole grains), which has the effect on insulin production. No doubt the diet of the moment is the Paleo diet, it involves eating vegetables, fruit, meat, fish, eggs, nuts, seeds, oils, spices and herbs while avoiding sugar and processed grains (flour, wheat, corn, cereals, pasta and bread).
These simple changes will help you stay fuller longer, help you feel more energized, and prevent many of the health problems and illnesses related to lack of sufficient nutrition. This prevents us from consuming preservatives, dyes and all kinds of artificial flavors. In this way, we eat far fewer toxins.

The intake of meats, fruits, vegetables and seeds gives us all the nutrients we need to live a healthy life. In addition, the consumption of good fats (from coconut oil, sea food, poultry, etc.) improves the condition of our arteries, our skin, and better yet – the functioning of our brain.
Most people who adopt this diet lose weight and increase their muscle mass. This is because the Paleolithic diet, supplemented with physical activity, accelerates the metabolism and gives us the necessary fatty acids to burn the deposited fat. It also decreases the risk of cardiovascular diseases.
The fibers of the Paleolithic diet, accompanied by the consumption of water improves the intestinal flora and helps with GOOD digestion.
Less hunger and better mood
Foods rich in protein and good fats quench our appetite and keep us full. The energy we get from this food is released by our body gradually. This determines that we do not experience constant hunger and helps to stabilize our blood sugar levels which can have an effect on our mood.
It improves the state of the skin.
