Want to start the New Year right with a better diet plan? Start eating healthier with a diet based on humans' early hunter-gatherer ancestors.

Making a New Year's resolution to eat healthier can be difficult for many people. The Paleo Cookbooks based on the Paleo diet will give those trying to loose the extra pounds a healthy boost.

The Paleo Cookbooks feature dishes from the Paleo Diet which are based on the diet of human's early hunter-gatherer ancestors. This diet plan eliminates processed foods like pasta, bread, rice, and sugar. The Paleo Cookbooks incorporate the nutritional and healthy diet that humans have evolved to eat delicious fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds and animals. These foods are high in beneficial nutrients such as soluble fiber, antioxidant vitamins, phytochemicals, omega-3 and monounsaturated fats, and low-glycemic carbohydrates that promote good health.

In addition to improving a person's figure, the Paleo Diet also improves energy levels, revs up the sex drive and promotes clearer skin. While managing weight, the Paleo Diet can also stop one from feeling bloated or fatigued after eating. Other followers have noticed lower cholesterol and blood pressure and decreased cravings for processed foods.

Nikki Young, author of the Paleo Cookbooks, noticed improvements from the diet immediately after beginning to follow it.

"When I started following a Paleo diet, I also changed up my [fitness] training, so I noticed the benefits of both the nutrition and the exercise simultaneously" Young says. "Definitely during the first few months I felt fantastic, my energy had increased and I could feel my fitness improving dramatically. I put a lot of those improvements down to the way I was eating, as I never felt those kinds of improvements in my energy and training when previously following a fairly unhealthy diet and training hard."

Young began cooking at a young age. She began cooking Paleo meals after her mother learned she was allergic to gluten and dairy. After discovering the Paleo diet, "I could immediately see how it would support a healthy lifestyle."

Those following the recipes within the cookbooks will not have to worry about a flavorless meal. The Paleo Cookbooks feature more than 120 recipes that only use raw, natural ingredients to create easy, tasty meals in any kitchen. There are many flavorful snacks, dinner entrees, salads and even dessert to choose from.
