The Paleo Burn System (also sometimes known as the caveman diet) is actually a whole system of ideas that shouldn’t be revolutionary, but actually are for many people. It was developed based on the fact that the human body has not actually evolved in thousands of years; since the times our ancestors were living in caves. Our modern-day diet is completely different from the kind of diet that was consumed before the agriculture industry advanced when our ancestors were living in caves. Today’s food supply is also riddled with unnecessary ingredients, hormones, preservatives and other chemicals. That, when combined with a lack of appropriate exercise, can unbalance the body’s natural processes, leading to excessive weight gain and a number of diseases.The system consists mainly of foods that were available in the “Paleo” or caveman days and had to be hunted, caught or gathered along with healthy exercise that the human body was designed for.
The Paleo Burn System actually consists of four parts:
- A proven diet regimen that supports healthy weight loss and aids in body detoxification
- A healthy exercise program designed to maximize the body’s potential
- A Support Kit with supplements for a variety of health issues
- Advice from a “normal guy” who figured it out
The Paleo Diet
The diet recommended by the Paleo Burn System is composed mainly of natural foods. Basic foods such as legumes, fruits, vegetables, nuts and healthy proteins can be consumed. It is limited in preserved meats, processed sugar, refined foods such as white bread, white rice and canned foods which have been heated; destroying much of the nutrition. Limiting “fast” carbohydrates is essential in preventing blood glucose and insulin swings in diabetics.
In today’s “modern” diet, you almost can’t turn around without getting loaded up on sodium, another health problem promoting cardiac and potential kidney issues. The diet plan is also low in sodium which can help those with high blood pressure.
Most people who adhere to the Paleo diet quickly become great fans and advocates as they may lose that common lethargic feeling, see a spike in energy levels, and feel generally cleaner and healthier as the diet helps to detoxify the body and get rid of all those artificial chemicals that have been stored for years.
The Paleo Burn System has also occasionally been called “Primal Burn”. This is in reference, again to the days of primal living when consistent exercise was a daily fact of life. Our ancestors did not “go for the burn” in terms of endless rounds of aerobics, kickboxing fads or spinning classes – which are all designed to rapidly increase your heart and respiratory rate and make you sweat profusely. No, instead our ancestors hiked up and down hills, walked everywhere they went and used their muscles in a more directed manner to hunt, gather and make things to provide comfort.
This exercise program allows you to “do” fewer exercises, but exercises that are targeted to help you lose weight and boost your metabolism rate over the long haul. It avoids some of the common problems of many weight loss exercise programs in that it avoids boosting cortisol, a stress hormone which can lead to weight gain. Cortisol spikes can also be avoided by following a “Paleo” sleep program – in other words, go to sleep when it is time, as sleep is necessary for renewal of the body’s cells and organs. One of the facets of incorporating the program into your lifestyle is a long term renewal of vitality and health.
The support kit comes with supplements that can fill in the “gaps” that we have all developed in our nutritional and physical status. Some options include: Fat Burner, Blood Pressure Solution, Relaxen, BCAA Prime and more. Supplements have been formulated with specific health problems in mind. Again – if we had all been eating and exercising like cavemen all of our lives, none of this would be needed – but sadly the modern day diet and lack of activity has caused a number of health concerns including an increasing population of diabetics, those with heart disease, and mental deterioration.
Actually Ken Burge, the inventor of this system is not an exercise guru. He did not play professional sports. He is not a famous dancing movie star. Ken is simply a guy who figured out what we all should have known. Physiologically, we are still cavemen but our society isn’t the same. To make the best of our life and help our body navigate in modern life, we may need a little help (and advice). Thousands of people have been helped and are still happy with the principles of the Paleo Burn program.
