5/13/13- Paula's Eating/Exercise Journal: Thursday

by Paula (Clean Eating Expert) 14. May 2013 15:59


Several years ago I went to a doctor who utilizes holistic medicine as part of his practice.  I went for help in addressing my digestive issues.  We did allergy testing, and acupuncture and an evaluation of my diet.  At the time I was eating 4-5 oz of chicken and pork and seafood at every meal and mid-morning snack in an attempt to build muscle through eating high amounts of protein.  This plan was recommended to me by my trainer at that time.

My doctor explained the theory of what foods your body processes best as there being two different types of bodies; 1) the hunter, 2) the gatherer.

The hunter is known as the paleo theory. This is a body type that should eat what a hunter would eat in cave man times.   This body composition usually holds weight through the middle with thinner arms and legs.

The gatherer is a thinner, even build who can ‘bend over easily’ to work the land like a farmer.

The theory is that paleo bodies process meat efficiently, but doesn’t process veggies as well.  The gatherer is the opposite.  Too much protein stops up their digestive systems.  This is the effect it has on me. Vegetables work through my system more easily and should be the primary focus of my diet.

Evaluate your own body makeup and see if these theories best fit your digestive needs.
