It is inevitable that you have heard the term “you are what you eat.” In the United States, obesity rates have risen dramatically over the last quarter century, with incidents of heart disease and type 2 diabetes also dramatically on the rise. While some of these cases can be blamed on heredity and genetic disposition, a large number of these are more accurately attributable to unhealthy diet and lifestyle.
It would seem that, in fact, the foods that most Americans eat are causing widespread, chronic illness. Not only heart disease and type 2 diabetes, but Crohn’s disease, IBS, lactose intolerance, celiac, and gluten intolerance – these chronic illnesses cause immense amounts of discomfort and can be life-threatening, and yet, a large percent of the population still shows an obsession with unhealthy foods.
While clean eating and a diet composed of quality, nutritious foods is a great start on your way towards a better health and a more positive lifestyle, some suggest that the Paleo diet provides the most benefit. Learn more about this way of eating and how it could benefit you:
The idea behind the Paleo diet is to mimic, as much as possible, what our early human ancestors would have had access to. The Paleo diet is largely focused on the consumption of protein and healthy, natural fats. The Paleo diet is very low in carbs and rejects the consumption of trans fats, preservatives, and refined sugars.
Foods included in the Paleo diet include:
By following the diet of our early human ancestors, the thought is that we are eating only the foods that our body was naturally built to consume and digest. Some have found that following a strict Paleo diet can greatly help in our efforts to reduce body fat and increase energy levels, and more.

In the nearly 8 years that my wife and I have lived in Colorado Springs, never have we seen the amount of road construction currently taking place. Whether it’s a main road or side street, there’s no part of town missing out on the “fun”. And it’s not just re-paving or patching potholes. Whole lanes are being ripped up with miles of digging in order to replace underground pipes of all varieties.
At first, I thought all the “weed” sales (pot is legal in Colorado) might be producing the influx of tax funds for all this construction. But a running buddy of mine made me aware of a bill that had passed in the last couple years which freed up an enormous amount of funds for these projects.
Turns out the city has a certain amount of time to spend the money. Based on the number of orange cones and “ROAD WORK AHEAD” signs, it looks as though no penny is being spared.
Millions of people are about to be disappointed –– they don’t even realize it.
Maybe you’re one of them.
