What Is The Caveman Diet and Caveman Training?

What is the Caveman Diet?

The caveman diet or Paleo Diet is a diet that your ancient caveman ancestors ate which was any food that could hunt and gather:

animal protein, vegetables, fruit, nuts and seeds. They did not eat processed foods, dairy, beans, legumes, or grains as they had no way to grow food. 

What is Caveman Training?

Caveman training is doing exercise like the cavemen did. Other terms for that approach to exercise are functional exercise and high intensity interval training. This type of exercise involves  is a classification of exercise which involves training the body for the activities performed in daily life. In the case of caveman training is when you are moving your body in ways that were natural to survival such as running from a moose or throwing a spear at a wild animal.

Your caveman ancestors had about 8% body fat. You have the ability to have a body that is fit, lean and muscular like the cavemen, you simply need to do caveman training and follow a caveman diet.

Don’t forget, your ancestors were cavemen. Unlike the highly inaccurate depictions of tubby cavemen like Fred Flintstone and Barney Rubble, your cavemen ancestors were actually very muscular and fit. They were also in great health. Contrary to popular belief, the reason for the awe inspiring caveman physique was not because they worked out to Richard Simmons videos, but because they moved all day long and they ate a diet of animal protein, vegetables, fruit, and seeds.

Your body is designed to move!

As far as archeologists can tell, cavemen did not have desk jobs. They didn’t sit back and watch TV either—we know this because there are no traces of remote controls.what is the caveman diet

Whenever cavemen wanted something, like food for example, they had to get off their duff and hunt it down. Can you imagine how thin you would be if you had to hunt or forage for your food every time you got hungry? You wouldn’t be overweight, that’s for sure. You might be very hungry, but you certainly wouldn’t be overweight.

Cavemen aren’t the only examples of the svelte effects of living in the wild. Did you ever notice how wild animals don’t get fat?
Why is it you never see an obese deer or an overweight giraffe?
How is it possible that wild animals are able to stay fit and lean without the use of artificial sweeteners, Weight Watchers meetings or a copy of the South Beach Diet on their nightstand?

It’s impossible to get fat when you live a life in accordance with nature and follow a diet like the caveman diet!

That’s why you need to return to nature and get fit. It’s time for you to let that animal instinct come raging forth! Listen to the call of the wild--it’s calling your name, beckoning you on the wind to run like a cheetah, to swim like a dolphin, and to lift, bend, push, lunge, throw and pull heavy objects just like your caveman ancestors did. (Although for convenience sake, I suggest that you perform functional exercises with dumbbells and resistance bands instead of having you hunt wild game like buffalo.

So ask yourself, is my current level of activity more like that of a caveman, or a tree?
