Hunters and Gatherers.

Back to the trees, back to the wood club?
The trending Natural Health Movement and Paleo Diet promote a lifestyle which is based on the Stone Age people.
When exercise and eating are in line with our genetic great-heritage, we feel more vital, healthier and are able to think more clearly, say the co-founders of the Paleo Movement Luxembourg Paul Merino and Melanie Lodevic.

Paleo Movement Luxembourg - Stone Age 2.0

The trending Natural Health Movement and Paleo Diet promote a lifestyle which is based on the Stone Age people. When exercise and eating are in line with our genetic great-heritage, we feel more vital, healthier and are able to think more clearly, say the co-founders of the Paleo Movement Luxembourg, Paul Merino and Melanie Lodevic. Paleo Movement Luxembourg Stone Age 2.0 Some basic elements of Natural Movement are jumping, sprinting, climbing, rolling, balancing, lifting branches or stones, and tree climbing - all best done barefoot. An important focus is also placed on practicing movements in an effective and globally energy-efficient way. Photo: cc-by-nc-sa Paul Merino @SEUILS Photo: Shutterstock
  2. 2. 24 T E L E C R A N 8 / 2 0 1 5 T E L E C R A N 8 / 2 0 1 5 25 a k t u e l l R E P O R T A G E a k t u e l l R E P O R T A G E KATHRIN WERNO telecran@telecran.lu T he modern Luxembourger Stone Age lifestyle began in –Thailand. Paul Merino and Melanie Lodevic made their way together through the jungle, climbing trees, dragging stones while balancing on bridges made of tree logs, wading barefoot through streams and chatting around the Natural Movement campfires in Southeast Asia. While the young Luxembourger follower of the trendy fitness concept that turns people of the 21st century into Stone Age hunters, also established the sport trend itself in the Grand Duchy with her Bootcamp, she met again with the Frenchman Paul Merino, a champion of the so-called Paleo Cuisine with his multicultural @PaleoFast movement. This diet is a building block of the new Stone Age lifestyle. It derives its name from „Paleontology“ - the life science of past geological eras - and is based on what was available to our ancestors of the Stone Age to foster themselves. Yesteryear our ancestors ate what they found or captured on the road - they were hunters and gatherers. Accordingly, the Paleo diet is based on the Paleolithic and mimics with contemporary food, what the people of that time probably had available such as: meat, fish, seafood, algae, eggs, vegetables, fruits, nuts, seeds, tubers, herbs and healthy fats such as coconut oil. „Very much emphasis is also placed on the high quality and sustainability of the food,“ says Paul Merino „so the meat comes exclusively from locally caught wild fish, grazing or respectfully pastured animals and eggs; similarly, vegetables and fruits of organic or local quality are definitely preferable.“ Hunters and Gatherers This is how the representatives of the „Stone Age cuisine“ believe it will provide us - we the people of the 21st century - the best of care, because of the 2.5 million-year-long evolution of our species which fit our organisms to these genuine staples. Tabu to the Paleo followers however, are excluded all industrially processed foods, sugar and artificial additives, as well as all those foods that have landed only in the diets of people when they settled about 10,000 years ago and began to practice agriculture and animal husbandry. Intensive cereals and products related to it, such as white bread, noodles and other pasta, rice and legumes are therefore minimized among the Stone Age followers, although they keep mainly rice, pulses and a few remaining ancient grains (to bake fermented sordough bread) as high-quality food. Following the Paleo theory, they are more difficult to process for our bodies because we genetically remained almost the same as the Stone Age people. The relatively short period from 20,000 to 10,000 years ago, in which the people were no longer hunter-gatherers, would have left only slight traces in our slow evolution. Therefore, sources such as refined carbohydrates - especially in the quantities in which they are consumed in industrialized societies - are a major cause of many diseases of civilization. Also, milk and milk products - with some notable exceptions, such as raw or fermented products like Kefir - are part of the No-Go's. Almost always going around barefoot, and wearing shorts; climbing as if hunting, sprinting, jumping, crawling and lifting stones and branches: the „inventor“ of the young Natural Movement is the Frenchman Erwan Le Corre. Paul M erino participated in trainings with him since 2008, when the Natural Movement concept was still in its infancy. „Not only I found it fun, my body deeply feeling air and earth, but I also began to experiment with the appropriate diet“, says one of the pioneers of this new, yet old lifestyle. In 2010 he took part in the first official Natural Movement camp in Thailand, where Merino and the Luxemburger Melanie Lodevic got to know each other. „I felt even more comfortable with this type of diet, and wanted to know more,“ she says. In 2012, when the French Paleo expert was in business training in Luxembourg, she invited him to organize a workshop for family and friends. Hollywood Dream At about the same time, everywhere in the media we suddenly heard of the „Paleo Diet“: the Stone Age lifestyle had reached Hollywood. Beauty, youth, health, success and, last but not least, better sex - numerous stars like Megan Fox, Matthew McConaughey and Gwyneth Paltrow are touting the benefits. Paul Merino holds back from such promises as a dream factory. „A lot more energy and mental clarity“ are the outstanding benefits of the Stone Age lifestyle for the Nice-based consultant - who coincidentally advises companies worldwide on reaching better organization, effectiveness and problem solving. Crosslinked Into the World „We continuously give information to our body: about our food, our movement - or lack thereof - stress, sleep, light and other factors. This information is passed onto our DNA, so that our body can adapt to the environment. When our DNA gets the right incentives, it enables a greater vitality,“ he argues. Through their relationship with him, his clients are directly or indirectly exposed to his lifestyle, which has a positive effect on everyone's work performance. In order to see as many people as possible take advantage of this lifestyle, Merino and Lodevic founded the Paleo Movement Luxembourg and held in November Info Paleo Luxembourg will hold their next Workshops on March 28 for Stone Age nutrition skills, and on March 29 for a training in the Natural Movement style. More information is available on the Internet at Facebook under „Paleo Lux“ and „Bootcamp Luxembourg“ or by Email at contact@paleolux.com. last year, their first workshop. Although the lifestyle borrows from the Stone Age, it is absolutely up to date: Modern cooking techniques and utensils are used, and the exchange of recipes and information is contemporary - Paleo Luxembourg works closely with the corresponding movements in France, Belgium, the UK, USA and Latin America. Like any special diet, Paleo finds its friends and critics. But as far as the quality and sustainability of the food are concerned, there is now consensus among all „diet popes“. And also regarding heavily processed foods, such as white bread and refined sugar and oils, which almost every expert of the diet would be keen to warn against. To this respect, the „Paleo Nutrition“ wins many hearts and minds. „Just try it,“ say Paul Merino and Melanie Lodevic. Who sees the two of them cannot help but believe a little, too, in the Hollywood miracle.
