Nell Stephenson is a private fitness trainer and Paleo lifestyle coach. She also collaborated on The Paleo Diet Cookbook with Loren Cordain and Lorrie Cordain. Paleoistais based on the gluten-free, non-dairy Paleo lifestyle. This type of eating focuses on eating off the land: what walks on it, grows from it, or swims in its waters.

DIET and NUTRITION

Paleoista goes into great detail about the Paleo lifestyle. A Paleoista is defined as a feminine, fashionable and fit woman who eats, breathes and lives the Paleo lifestyle. The Paleo diet has garnered a lot of attention in recent years for its healthy attributes as well as its simplicity. Paleoista is about eating food and only food. There are no pills to take, no shakes to drink and no processed products at all. Some of the foods you will be eating include vegetables, fruits, fish, game meat and some nuts. The Paleo diet differs from a low-carb diet because it does not eliminate carbohydrates as a food group Instead the Paleo diet has a ratio of about 40 percent carbs, 30 percent fat and 30 percent protein. Some of the benefits given to becoming a Paleoista are:

  • You’ll feel the best you’ve ever felt
  • You’ll have incredible amounts of energy all day long
  • Your body will be lean
  • Your skin will glow
  • You will sleep like a baby

While Paleoista talks in detail about the types of things you will not eat, it also offers some helpful lists on what you will eat. There are sections of the book covering various protein, fat and carbohydrate sources. Some of the proteins you will be able to enjoy include fresh, wild seafood, free-range poultry, game meats like ostrich, venison, rabbit, elk and grass-fed beef, pork and bison. Some of the natural fat sources include organic avocados, organic oils and organic nuts including pecans, cashews, macadamia and walnuts. For your carbohydrate sources, you can have any fresh vegetable or fresh fruit. This excludes any dried fruit or those that are filled with added sugar. For vegetables you want things with more leaves and the greener the better. Eating all of the colors of the rainbow for your vegetables is highly encouraged as well. Some of the recipes found in Paleoista that you might try during your two week introductory period include:

  • Tropical Island Breakfast
  • Steak and Eggs
  • Seared Sea Bass with Coconut Curry on Spinach
  • Meatballs and Marinara with Spaghetti (Squash)
  • Turkey-Tomato Burgers on Arugula
  • Cobb Salad
  • Sautéed Shrimp in Meyer Lemon-Ginger Sauce with Bok Choy
  • Taco Salad
EXERCISE

With the Paleoista style of eating, you will find that you have more energy and can exercise. The program is not just for athletes, and the author does not believe in a one size fits all fitness approach. Instead, she believes you need to find something you enjoy doing and just start moving. Find ways to exercise by making it a priority. Essentially you can find ways to shave down your TV watching time and use that to move more. If you don’t want to cut down your TV time, add an elliptical, treadmill or stationary bike to your living room area and complete your workouts while watching your favorite program. The type of workout you do is completely up to you. The important thing is that you find a way to fit regular exercise into your schedule.

CONCLUSION

Paleoista offers a feminine approach to the Paleo diet while offering tips and tricks for being successful. This book is designed for women with busy schedules that want to embrace a healthy lifestyle but may not know where to begin. Following the advice in this book can lead you to a leaner and healthier body while providing you with the energy needed to maintain that busy schedule.
