Raw Paleo Diet
Raw Paleo Diet And Its Benefits
Raw Paleo is an adaptation of the Paleo diet. One may initially be hesitant to consume raw meat, and honestly, easing into it takes some time. That’s why I brought on board my guest today, Melissa Henig, who will explain the benefits of shifting to a raw paleo diet.
Raw Paleo Advocate
Melissa Henig has been a staunch advocate of the raw paleo diet for years. She started on a raw vegan diet years ago but found the diet insufficient to fulfill her nutritional needs.
“I started on raw vegan, but the diet was not very sustainable,” shares Melissa Henig. “It had nutritional deficiencies. I bruised easily, I was losing muscle mass, and I always felt anxious.”
In her search for a more suitable diet, Melissa Henig’s regular health food store recommended a dietary intake of raw cholesterol, as well as fat-soluble vitamins A, D, and K. Melissa Henig slowly shifted to a raw paleo diet from there.
Understanding Raw Paleo
According to Melissa Henig, raw paleo primarily consists of consuming meat products in its natural form. The raw foods are unprocessed. These include dairy, eggs and meat, chicken, fish and organ meats that have never been frozen.
The diet also includes raw vegetables and fruits as well as raw bone marrow and vegetable juices. Grains, gluten, and legumes are omitted from a raw paleo diet.
“A lot of it comes back to the enzymes. They help digest and assimilate everything that goes in your body. All raw meat has probiotics and raw milk,” Melissa Henig said. “Probiotics is good bacteria and essential for living and healing. We need fats, cholesterol, and protein to survive, and a raw paleo diet helps heals and regenerate tissues.”
