There are 10 Primal Blue Print Laws. All 10 are highlighted in the Primal Blue Print by Mark Sisson, founder of Primal Nutrition.
#1 Eat animals and plants
Eating meat and vegetables is the first primal law. This is where the bulk of your food will come from. Meat and vegetables are the most nutrient dense foods. So they are very important to include in your diet. They are like the base of primal eating.
The goal of the primal diet is to eliminate grains, sugars, trans-fat, and hydrogenated fats. The ideal primal diet will consist of protein from all forms of meat and fish. Your main carbohydrate source will be from tons of vegetables and some fruit. You can't forget your healthy fats. This is my favorite because it helps me to feel satisfied. So your fats will come from nuts, avocados, coconuts, and olive-oil.
Before eating primal, I was a big rice, oat meal, and bread eater. As long as I was eating brown rice and whole grain bread I was doing great. After studying the primal way and reading the primal blue print, I learned that these types of food raise your insulin too high. They also cause inflammation. Now at 39 years old, I want to be as healthy as possible. I am grateful to have learned about the primal blue print and I look forward to helping a lot of people with this new found knowledge.
Finally, don't forget to eat your protein and your vegetables they are essential in the primal diet and the key to providing you with most of your nutrients. Vegetables come in many shapes, colors and forms so get to exploring and enjoy the journal.
