Primal Burn (now called Paleo Burn) is a system created by Ken Burge, who is a diet and fitness expert.
This program is based on the Paleolithic Diet, which essentially advises people to eliminate or greatly reduce any food that was made available after the agricultural revolution. The reasoning behind this notion is that we are not genetically programmed to eat these kinds of foods.
Ken Burge’s Primal Burn system is based on the following foods:
- Lean meats with no oil added, which should be cooked by grilling, or steaming
- Wild or organically- raised fish
- Free-range poultry like turkey and wild birds
- Plant and nuts oils
- Green leafy vegetables, nuts and seeds, but no legumes
- Coconut milk and almond milk, but no dairy
- As for sweeteners, only raw honey is allowed
Cultivated crops, as well as salt and sugar, are excluded from the diet. Ken Burge believes that processed foods are partly responsible for the obesity epidemic, so he advises dieters to eliminate grains or at least consume soaked grains and beans. Nuts should be eaten fresh instead of roasted and potatoes should be avoided.
Commercial dairy products are another big no-no in this program. An extra benefit from eliminating them from your diet will be the reduction of LDL or bad cholesterol in your blood.
The primal Burn program has a high fiber, which is very beneficial for the prevention of intestinal polyps and cancer and it also contains a lot of Omega 3 fatty acids.
Even though Primal Burn can be an effective way to lose weight and improve your overall health, it may not work for everyone. If you are currently overeating and lead a sedentary lifestyle, then this program may be helpful. On the other hand, if you are already following a calorie-restricted diet and an exercise regime, the results may not be so impressive, because there is less room for improvement. What is more, children, pregnant women and people with hormonal disorders should be cautious about getting into this kind of program.
