The Paleo diet is not really a “diet” – it is a lifestyle and a healthy way to live.
Here are 5 celebrities who enjoy following a Paleo diet for health, weight loss and a lifestyle choice;
1. Tom Jones
Tom Jones revealed in 2011, that he lost over two stone thanks to a caveman style diet and stopped drinking alcohol for two months.
Tom Jones who is now 73 years old, told Chris Evans on the Breakfast show that his weight rose to around 16 stones after tucking into British Christmas treats at the beginning of the year.
“I was putting too much weight on,” said Jones.
“I didn’t think I was going to. I left the working out off for a bit, thought I’d keep a check on it. And with the Christmas puddings and cakes, which we get sent over, before I knew it I was 230lbs, which was 30lbs more than I should be. I couldn’t get into my suits.”
“I’d recommend it to anybody. It tells you to get back to the way we used to eat when we were hunters and gatherers. Eat anything that’s natural, meat, fish, veg, which you must eat raw as much as possible. And it worked, I dropped 35lbs.”
2. Jack Osbourne
Jack Osbourne was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis aged only 26 years old. “Diet is a big thing. I am a firm believer in you are what you eat. I juice a lot, I try and stick to a Paleo Diet. At its core, I look at MS as inflammation, so I try and eliminate foods that cause inflammation: dairy, gluten, grains.”
Osbourne looks up to Dr.Terry Wahls, who defeated the progressive disease without drugs by treating food as medicine.
3. Jessica Biel
The CrossFit enthusiast beams that the Paleo diet “just leans you down and slims you up and takes that little layer of fat, skin, water-weight right off your body.”
4. Ursula Grobler
“When I’m close to a competition, I’m super-strict Paleo,” said Ursula Grobler, the current world record holder in the indoor ergometer, and one of the world’s best lightweight rowers. “It helps me get the leanness I need to compete, while still supporting good eating habits.”
5. Matthew McConaughey
McConaughey eats a Paleo Diet to maintain low body fat levels. He also practices Intermittent Fasting (periods of not eating) as an effective way to burn fat and maintain a lean physique. Conventional wisdom says we should be eating 6-8 meals a day but McConaughey says that doesn’t make sense.
