Here Is What You Can Eat

Your inner caveman loves meat. And think about it: he hunted. If he didn't bag a woolly mammoth or other animals, his clan went without protein. So those times when he did bring home the meat were not only times of celebration, but a renewal of healthy eating for them.

So it should come as no surprise that not many meats are off limits, as long as you choose the leanest variety you can find. In fact, lean meat is a vital part of this amazing lifestyle plan. Here's a comprehensive list so you can get a feel for how easy it is to choose your meat and still be confident your nourishing your inner caveman:

•Chuck steak
•Extra-lean hamburger (no more than 7 percent fat)
•Lean beef (trim it of all visible fat)
•London broil
•Lean pork
•Pork chops
•Pork loin
•Flank steak
•Top sirloin steak

The same guidelines apply to your eating habits for poultry. As long as you eat poultry lean, you're nourishing your body. Here are just a few examples:

•Chicken breast
•Game hen breasts
•Turkey breast

You may also be surprised to learn that you're encouraged to eat some types of organ meats in order to keep that caveman inside you healthy. Enjoy beef, lamb, pork, and chicken livers. You can also eat beef, lamb, and pork tongues.

Surprisingly, egg consumption is encouraged, as long as you keep it to a maximum of six eggs a week. If you love to eat eggs, consider making a two-egg omelet instead of three.

Don't think it'll satisfy you? Stuff it with plenty of fresh vegetables. It will not only fill you up, but you just may discover it's one of the most delicious ways to eat omelets. And it'll help ensure you'll get all the vegetables you need for the day!

Here Is What You Should Not

Oh, yes, there are certain meats you should avoid as you progress in your prehistoric
diet journey. Most of these you'll discover are considered fatty. What are the worst offenders?

•Chicken wings, Breakfast sausage
•Deli meats, Fatty lamb chops
•Pork sausage, Bologna
•Salami, Fatty pork chops
•Chicken skin, Bacon
•Turkey skin, Pepperoni
•Spam (Of course, plenty of people don't recognize this as a meat to begin with!)

Prior to the advent of agriculture, Paleolithic man ate no cereal grains and no wheat, so these foods are off limits. Even if the grains say “gluten-free, " they’re still not recommended for nourishing your inner caveman.

Theses grains, as well as processed foods made with them, are off limits. Need a list? I'm warning you, it's fairly long. But it sets up your parameters nicely. They include:

Wild rice

Just for emphasis, any food made from these products can't be eaten as well. It's not that I'm trying to torture you by listing these, but it needs to be clearly stated what specific foods are not allowed. These include:

Amaranth, Corn starch, Corn on the cob Corn chips, Cookies, Cakes, Bread, Buckwheat, Corn syrup, Doughnuts, Flat bread, Muffins Pasta, Pancakes,
Pita bread, Pizza, Quinoa, Rice of all kinds, Rice cakes, Rice flour, Rice noodles, Rice pudding, Rolled oats, Rolls, Rye, Rye Crackers, Tortillas.

Enjoy the good and forget the bad.
