You may be confused what the Paleo diet is; here’s Paleo in a nutshell!
Although this diet may seem like just another fad in the nutrition world, this lifestyle is based heavily on knowledge from Anthropology, Archaeology, and Biochemistry. If I could give one piece of advice to my readers it is to abstain from processed foods and start eating real foods. Although many diets embrace this idea, the Paleo diet takes it a step further by defining the “real/human” foods as the foods humans ate before the introduction of grains, legumes, and dairy. Instead of thinking as the foods one cannot eat on the Paleo Diet, one must think of the many foods that we can enjoy.
Paleo Definition of real foods: meat, seafood, vegetables, healthy fats, fruits, and nuts
The Paleo Diet is about variety. It is important to eat real foods in season. Try to familiarize yourself with local food vendors and the way they grow their food or raise their animals. Animals should eat what they are meant to eat depending on the species (ex: cows should eat grass, not grains). As you learn more about this diet, change your mindset and start thinking of what foods would be available if you had to live off of the land by hunting and gathering foods. Also begin to think of what kind of a lifestyle a caveman would maintain.
