The goal is to train your body to derive its energy from proteins and fats instead of grains, legumes, dairy and other foods that irritate and inflame your body and deprive it of important nutrients. There is a growing body of research documenting the health benefits of making this switch. In short, the benefits include reduced risk of heart diseases, autoimmune diseases, cancer and diabetes, all of which can be traced in varying ways to excessive inflammation in your body, high insulin levels, and other processes and imbalances that are too detailed to cover here. Aside from that, you simply feel better, look better, and perform better. Of course, individual results will vary, so the best way to see how the diet will affect you is to jump in and try it.
