The V-Lean Diet
The V-Lean diet was born as a modification to the popular Paleo diet. Put simply, the Paleo diet is based on consuming foods similar to what might have been eaten by the hunters and gatherers of the Paleolithic era. The diet typically includes meat, fish, fruits, vegetables, nuts, and seeds. The aim of a paleo diet is to return to a way of eating that’s more like what early humans ate.
Farming changed what people ate and established dairy, grains and legumes as additional staples in the human diet. This relatively late and rapid change in diet, according to the hypothesis, outpaced the body’s ability to adapt. This mismatch is believed to be a contributing factor to the prevalence of obesity, diabetes and heart disease today.
The V-Lean Diet in Detail
Here at Vitality Anti-Aging Center, we wanted to create a more attainable and sustainable version of the Paleo diet for our clients. In the early stages of the diet, you will eliminate fruit and carbs to “shock” your system into fat burning mode, then will gradually add some of those restricted items back into your daily meal plan. The V-Lean Diet is easier to follow, not as strict, and with similar health and weight loss benefits.
The V-Lean diet is the model for weight loss that we embrace here at Vitality. We feel there is good health benefit and more importantly this is a livable diet for long-term weight control and overall better health. There are pros and cons to every diet plan or type. Some may be good at generating short-term weight loss but it becomes very difficult to maintain the results once you stop the program. This is why it is important when considering strategies to lose weight to choose a program or lifestyle that can be maintained once the weight loss goal has been achieved. We feel that the V-Lean diet is easily able to be maintained once the maintenance weight is achieved and calorie restriction ends.
