The information of who we are, our characteristics, physiological, morphological and biochemical, is stored in the genes. We inherit from our parents and pass on to our children. So we perpetuate as a species.
All of the genetic information of our species is the human genome. All of the genetic information of an individual is the genotypeand the way in which genes are expressed in a given environment is the phenotype.
The microbiota it is the large community of microorganisms, which covers the body of the human being. It is a complex ecosystem of microbes, comprising bacteria, fungi, and other microorganism. For every human cell there are 10 bacteria and its more of 3 million genes exceed 150 times the human genome.
The intestinal microbiota it is the part of the microbiota that we host in our intestines. Approximately represents 70% of the total. Let's not forget that the surface of the intestines is equivalent to the area of a tennis court (approximately 300 m2).

Many wonder if the paleo diet is a diet that is suitable to cover the nutritional requirements that have the high-performance athletes or the people with a great physical activity.
In the first place, as we have already commented on occasion previousshould be made clear that the paleo diet it is not whether a specific regime of power. It is a model of nutrition based on the evolution that promotes mainly the consumption of real food front processed foods.
No, it makes no sense to count calories for weight control. The calorie is a unit of thermal energy. Traditionally been used the calorie measure the energy of food ingested and as well to develop diets by applying the energy balance equation: the calories that you ingest less energy expenditure is equal to the fat that is stored.
But this is a serious error, the calories did not influence the body composition of individuals. Scientific studies have shown that diets isocaloric (identical calorie) with same distribution of macronutrients different, have a different impact on the accumulation of body fat.
