What is the Paleo/Primal Lifestyle?
Living by nature’s design in a human designed world.
The idea of the Paleo/Primal lifestyle is to live as we have genetically evolved to thrive. Take clues from our ancestors for guidance on the healthiest behaviors for our ideal genetic expression. Not necessarily to copy the Paleolithic lifestyle, but to use the principles of circumstantial environment pressure and primal habits to determine the best behaviors fit for our nature. We are still primal humans by our gene expression that have not evolved as quickly as the unnatural world we have created. Thankfully, by getting back to the basics of human nature and behavior, we can create a lifestyle that reconnects to the bare essentials of being human. Without further explanation, here is the Bare 5 Guide to living the Paleo/Primal lifestyle…
