5 Successful Paleo Habits

1) Low Intensity Cardio
Most people still maintain the idea that exercise has to mean out of breath and drenched in sweat. In reality, you should do more of the slow stuff: long walks and hikes, which sets your body up to burn more fat, circulate-remove-drain toxins from your system, and increase cardio pulmonary efficiency (lung-heart and well-oxygenated blood). Think of your exercise strategy as a fitness pyramid to include Low, Middle, and High Intensity activities.


2) Up Early Walking and Moving
After a bunch of sleep, your body needs two things, movement and hydration. Yet, most grab a paper and coffee (no movement and dehydration) Connecting with the sunrise, moving and breathing is a great way to start the day and warmup your body. Ask my dogs!

3) Deep Breathing
Breathing is more than air. As explained HERE lung expansion is associated with moving the ribs, spine, enhancing the efficiency of circulation, nurturing organs, and keeping the tissues of the lungs strong, resilient, and pliable.

4) Raw Food
Gotta have it. Enzymes, vitamins, minerals all get seeped out when you cook, steam, grill, broil. Throw some spinach or kale in your morning shake, try salads with different types of leaves, and eat a bit of fruit.

5) Seeking Out Good Sources of Fat
Three words: Coconut, Avocado, Olive. Three of the best fats come from fruit. Beyond that, wild salmon, grass fed beef, pastured chicken, nuts, particularly walnuts, macadamia, almonds, pecans, pumpkin. Fat does not make you fat, it curbs hunger, and essential for every cell in the body. Read the article Defending Fat HERE
