What is the paleo diet?
Also known the Stone Age diet or Paleolithic diet, the paleo diet is modeled on prehistoric human diets and varies based on regional availability. While there are varying degrees of what is allowed and not allowed on the paleolithic diet, there’s a general emphasis on less processed foods and on whole/nutrient delivering foods (fruits, vegetables, grass fed meats, nuts and seeds) which may have positive impact on overall wellbeing.
What can you eat on the paleo diet?
Typically, paleo adherents enjoy lean meat (especially grass fed or wild game) fish, fruit and vegetables, nuts and seeds. The paleo diet omits grains, legumes, processed/refined foods, white potatoes and some tubers and refined sugars. Sweet potatoes and some squash is accepted by some paleo plans. Some paleo followers also consume full-fat dairy.
