What is the Paleo Diet?

Since starting this diet 3 weeks ago, I'm often asked, "What is the Paleo Diet?"  If you Google Paleo Diet, the Google Gods will provide you with multiple links to peruse at your leisure. In short, the Paleo Diet primarily allows Paleolithic Era foods and eliminates or greatly limits Neolithic Era foods.

Robb Wolf, is one of the world's leading experts in Paleolithic nutrition and his website is a good starting point if you're looking to learn more about the benefits and details of this diet.

Here's a brief list of what's OK to eat and what you should avoid:

OK to Eat...

  • Lean Meats & Seafood
  • Fruits & Berries
  • Vegetables
  • Nuts & Seeds
  • Healthy Fats 
  • Eggs

  • ALL Grains
  • Processed Foods & Sugars
  • Legumes

  • Alcohol
