Paleo is an IDEA, and not just for food


Guest post written by: Max Shank

 

I find it funny how everyone is always looking for the “perfect workout” the “perfect diet” or the “perfect job.”

You find the same ideas in martial arts, “Gracie Jiu Jitsu is the best,” or “10th Planet is the best.” People get caught up in thinking of lists or brands rather than adopting useful ideas.

This dogma gets in the way of our progress and diminishes our ability to improve.

One thing I get asked about my diet all the time is “are you paleo?”

Sort of.

Part of what makes the paleo idea so attractive to me is it’s based on common sense rather than jargon. It simply makes sense that if you can eat something made out of stuff that is relatively easy to find, you’re probably meant to eat it.

It’s not a strict set of rules, like always make sure you cook your broccoli to help release extra nutrients, or never, ever, ever eat anything with sugar in it. It’s just an idea that helps guide you to things you should probably be eating.

The same should be true when it comes to exercising and with fitness.

Now I’m not saying you should stop lifting weights and only hunt wooly mammoth with sticks and rocks, but it might at least make sense to simplify. So let’s take a look at some things that just might make sense for us as humans.

Wrestling/Grappling/Martial Arts
Climbing
Running
Lifting/Carrying

The above are really just ideas. We can take these ideas and blend them up with some science. No rules, just some ideas to think about.

It would stand to reason that humans are meant for some sort of combat. Grappling is a nice way to do this while also minimizing risk, so there are lots of strengths and skills being exercised in this.

It’s also highly likely that we are built to climb on things since, if I remember correctly, we didn’t have a lot in the way of elevators a few thousand (or million) years ago. So it makes sense that our bodies would respond well to climbing or hanging on things.

Likewise, the bicycle wasn’t invented until about 1790. So unless you had a group of large men to carry you around on a mobile pedestal, you were probably using your legs to get around. This is the primary way our legs used to get strong, especially running fast to catch a smaller fast animal.

Great, you just killed a tasty animal, now how are you going to get this bad boy home? Looks like you’re going to have to pick it up and carry it, unless you have a furniture dolly handy.

When it comes to training, some of this stuff just sort of makes sense for the structure we start out with. I’m not going to be abandoning handstands and other cool exercises that current science has shown us make sense and help us a whole hell of a lot, but you can’t deny the benefit of some of these historical staples in human movement.

Don’t get married to movements and don’t get married to foods, marry yourself to common sense and be open to new ideas. This is true with exercise, with food, and with the rest of your life.

Chronic Pain – Health – Education

Patients will better understand nerve related chronic muscle pain if they understood the burnt pot principle in order to better take care of their own health.

Equivalencies:

New cooking pot: Healthy status.

Cooking in the pot using high heat will burn the food: High-intensity repetitive activities such as sports, recreational and work activities will injure nerves and muscles.

Pot starts to burn: Development of acute pain

When the food starts to burn, stop cooking immediately to cool the pot and avoid more burnt residue buildup: Rest muscles immediately to prevent development of increase in pain.

Immediately clean the pot since it is easier to prevent more and more food from getting burned: Get the acute pain treated immediately and properly until pain is totally resolved. This allows the muscles spasms to be treated immediately and prevents a self-perpetuating cycle of further entrapping intramuscular nerves and blood vessels within the spasm progressing to irreversible nerve damage.

If the burnt residue cannot be completely cleansed, cook using medium to low heat: Avoid high-intensity, high-impact activities and repetitive motion activities which will aggravate the underlying pain due to more muscle tightening and shortening.

If there is significant charring on the cooking surface that cannot be cleansed thoroughly, cooking time before food burns will be much shorter even on using regular heat: If you already have chronic pain, even regular activities of daily living will aggravate the chronic pain. The time before pain is aggravated on performing an activity is much shorter. Moderation of lifestyle is essential.

Continued cooking in a burnt pot wastes a lot of food since the food will stick to the underlying burnt residue: Muscles that are in pain and spasm are shorter in length and cannot perform efficient work. More energy has to be consumed by the muscles to perform a given activity. If the short and tight muscles are worked excessively and unduly, there will be increase in pain.

Cooking time has to be increased by using lower heat to avoid further residue buildup: Patients will have to increase the time to perform an activity. To avoid further pain aggravation movements have to be slower and graduated with frequent rest periods.

Burnt pots are harder to clean needing more effort and energy to clean the char which becomes embedded into the cooking surface: Chronic pain is very difficult to control since nerve damage has become irreversible. More concentrated effort is needed on the part of patient and physician to control the chronic pain.

To be able to continue use the burnt pot, cleaning must occur immediately and regularly after each cooking session: To have quality of life, patients in chronic pain need to have ongoing treatments to immediately and regularly release new muscle spasms that have formed due to activities of daily living. After each treatment session, the areas of new muscle spasm have to be carefully located to restore blood flow to the areas treated.

Ingredients:

  • 4 cups of macadamia nut flour (pre-soak, dehydrate, then blend – makes the flour lighter, fluffier and easier to digest)

Recipe:

  • Whisk-up eggs in a big bowl.
  • Add the macadamia flour, water-chestnut flour, and dessicated coconut
  • Add all the dates to a seperate bowl, fill with enough water to cover the dates, microwave for 2 minutes, then mash it up
  • Melt the coconut oil and ghee in a small bowl, then add it to the mix.
  • Squeeze in the Orange
  • Add the mashed dates, raisins, cinnamon, bicarbonate soda, ginger, honey and nut chunks
  • Spread the mix onto a large baking tray
  • I like to add extra chunks of macadamia and walnut chunks on top, oh – and extra cinnamon

Paleo Diet – Yes or No? Pros and Cons

If the idea of eating like a caveman appeals to you, you may want to learn about the pros and cons of the Paleo Diet eating plan, before you give it a try.

Here are some of the pros and cons.

Pros

Reduced Risk of Type II Diabetes

Because the Paleo diet eliminates simple sugars that cause the spikes in blood sugar levels believed to play a role in the development of type II diabetes, it could reduce your risk of developing the condition.

Lower Cholesterol Levels

Saturated and trans-fat in the diet have been determined to be the main cause of high cholesterol and high cholesterol is a risk factor for heart disease. Trans-fats would not be consumed on a Paleolithic diet, because they are man-made fats.

Intake of saturated fat should be lessened by eliminating butter, cheese and other dairy products. Beef, pork and other farm-raised meats that are sources of dietary saturated fat are not allowed. Fish and game meats are generally leaner.

Possible Reduced Risk of All Sorts of Chronic Disease

It is believed that the modern diet plays a role in all kinds of chronic, seemingly age-related diseases. Eating natural, whole foods, as opposed to processed foods, could reduce your risk of these modern diseases.

Cons

Problematic for People with Food Allergies

People with food allergies may find it difficult, if not impossible to follow the diet.

Shell-fish is one of the major components of the eating plan. So, people with shell-fish allergies have fewer choices when planning what to eat.

May be Expensive to Follow

There is an added expense that accompanies this kind of eating plan. Fresh seafood is expensive. Canned or frozen seafood would not be allowed if someone was “truly” following the Paleo diet.

Unless you hunt, you will need to include the cost of buying game meat. 55-65% of the calories in the eating plan are to be derived from meat or fish. If you do hunt, food preservation could be a problem. It is possible that cavemen from catches to use later. It is known that hunter-gatherer societies dried meat to be eaten later.

So, it is not impossible, but could be time-consuming to preserve your own game meat.

Mushrooms and other plant foods that are allowed on the diets can also be expensive.

Too High in Animal Foods/Too Low in Plant-Based Foods

Opponents of the Paleo diet often mention this fact. If more than half of your calories are derived from animal foods, you may not get enough fiber to have healthy digestion and low cholesterol levels. Most dietary fiber comes from plant-based foods.

Those are the main pros and cons of the Paleo Diet. It could be a healthy eating plan, as long as you can overcome the disadvantages, which is very possible.
