Will a paleo diet be productive for muscle gain.
I have been playing with the idea of trying a paleo plan, but I am concerned about not being able to gain muscle mass.
Does anyone have any experience with paleo eating habits and muscle gain?
Heres some info I gathered:
"The essentials of the Paleolithic Diet are:
Eat none of the following:
? Grains- including bread, pasta, noodles
? Beans- including string beans, kidney beans, lentils, peanuts, snow-peas and peas
? Dairy products
Eat the following:
? Meat, chicken and fish
? Vegetables (especially root vegetables, but definitely not including potatoes or sweet potatoes)
? Nuts, eg. walnuts, brazil nuts, macadamia, almond. Do not eat peanuts (a bean) or cashews (a family of their own)
? Berries- strawberries, blueberries, raspberries etc.
Try to increase your intake of:
? Root vegetables- carrots, turnips, parsnips, rutabagas, Swedes
? Organ meats- liver and kidneys (I accept that many people find these unpalatable and won?t eat them)"
