There are many specific diets you can select from depending on your health issues, choice or desired weight.
Over the past several years the Paleo diet has become very popular. This diet consists of foods consumed by the first humans on earth, namely, meat, fish, vegetables and fruit, while excluding all grains, dairy and processed foods.
A few rules of the diet are that you keep red meat to a minimum and eat only grass-fed beef, wild caught fish and organic chickens. Cooking oils such as olive, coconut, grapeseed, sesame seed and avocado are acceptable for this diet.
In modern times, the Paleo diet has been modified with several choices of food and beverages. For example, white potatoes are not part of the diet, sweet potatoes might be eaten occasionally.
Coffee, tea and wine are often accepted by the Paleo diet, though in small amounts. Cacao powder can be used for chocolate desserts, and maple syrup is the sweetener of choice. As always, my recipes are simple and budget friendly.
I personally have talked with people on this diet and they claim to feel great, enjoy the food and even experience desired weight loss.
