The paleo diet is based roughly on what our ancestors were probably eating during the Paleolithic era (around 2 ½ million years ago). Did I ever mention that science is wrong from time to time?
The diet is extremely healthy and wholesome if you follow it. Thousands of people all over the world rave about the health benefits and great results they get from it
Like any diet, it is not the end all and be all, no diet ever is, but it’s a great life style to adopt.
The diet itself is pretty easy to understand. You have a list of foods that you can eat and a list of foods that you should not eat. Pretty much like any diet.
It’s very basic and anybody can understand it. Unlike other diets which use nutrient timings, food combinations, detoxes, lemonade, etc. the paleo diet is straightforward.
However, it is not an easy diet to follow.
The biggest complaint about it is the initial challenge people go through. You’ll have cravings that will be gnawing at you constantly. Those cravings are the exact same cravings you would go through if you were a drug addict that quits your drug of choice.
It’s just like that because it’s exactly what you’re doing… you’re going to be coming off a drug addiction. In this case, the drug is sugar.
Once you get past letting go of your sugar cravings, it will be smooth sailing.
So what are the best paleo foods?
The paleo foods you eat are nutrient dense and natural. In the purest forms of the paleo diet you eat organic produce and grass-fed meats. Even eggs should be free range.
If you can do that, fantastic! However that would be a little on the expensive side. So, if you can’t afford organic vegetables and grass-fed meats, then by all means get the normal produce and meats.
Just stick to the food list recommended below.
There are many types of foods you can eat while on the paleo diet.
Poultry, Bacon, Pork, Ground Beef, Grass Fed Beef, Chicken Thigh, Chicken Leg, Chicken Wings, Turkey, Chicken Breast, Pork Tenderloin, Pork Chops, Steak, Veal, Lamb rack, Shrimp, Lobster, Clams, Salmon, Venison Steaks, Buffalo, New York Steak, Lamb Chops, Rabbit, Goat, Elk, Emu, Goose, Kangaroo, Bear, Beef Jerky, Eggs, Bison, Bison Steaks, Bison Jerky, Bison Ribeye, Bison Sirloin, Wild Boar, Reindeer, Turtle, Ostrich, Pheasant, Quail, Lean Veal, Chuck Steak, Rattlesnake
OK… some of those are a little crazy but you get the idea. There are a lot of choices which means it’s easier to do paleo than most other nutrition plans.
Pick and choose what you like and eat those. It does not have to be a rigid diet. Some flexibility is good.
Asparagus, Avocado, Artichoke hearts, Brussels sprouts, Carrots, Spinach, Celery, Broccoli, Zucchini, Cabbage, Peppers (All Kinds), Cauliflower, Parsley, Eggplant, Green Onions
Avocado Oil, Coconut oil, Olive oil, Macadamia Oil, Grass fed Butter
Almonds, Cashews, Hazelnuts, Pecans, Pine Nuts, Pumpkin Seeds, Sunflower Seeds, Macadamia Nut, Walnuts
Apple, Avocado, Blackberries, Papaya, Peaches, Plums, Mango, Lychee, Blueberries, Grapes, Lemon, Strawberries, Watermelon, Pineapple, Guava, Lime, Raspberries, Cantaloupe, Tangerine, Figs, Oranges
The one thing that may be missing and glaring obvious to you is the lack of grains, breads, crackers, cookies, cakes and other similar crap that you don’t need at all.
Some people will argue that our Paleolithic ancestors ate grains. Yes they did. They ate grains that weren’t refined, processed, chemically altered or bleached unlike the ones we eat.
They also walked everywhere didn’t have heat or air conditioning and couldn’t go through the drive thru when they were hungry.
Some people think that a paleo diet removes carbs. It doesn’t. It removes crappy carbs but you can have all the vegetables you want, those are carbs.
If you consume only the foods on the list above, you will notice your health improve. You will look and feel better.
If you eat sensibly and follow this diet, your results will be fantastic.
When you change to a paleo based diet, the results can be amazing in a relatively short period of time.
If you are looking to lose weight, drop inches fast, increase your energy and feel better overall, you really should look at a paleo based eating plan.

Fat does not make you fat and high carbohydrate based eating is bad for you.
Or if we put it in the scientists own words;
“Global dietary guidelines should be reconsidered in light of these findings.”
Insert my totally shocked and disbelieving facial expression right here!
I never realized that the scientific community moves at the speed of government, but apparently they do.
The number of reports, findings and actual real-life results have been saying that it’s not fats that are killing people, its high carb diets that are doing it for a long time.
I guess this is official vindication for every one of the pioneers of change that have been saying, LOW CARB, LOW CARB, LOW CARB.
And where did this admission come from? Not a fake news or slanted source, but from The Lancet.
You can click The Lancet to see the abstract of the report. I’ll sum it up for you though.
High carbohydrate intake is associated to a higher risk of total mortality.
Why? Aren’t vegetables carbs?
Yes vegetables are carbs but the aren’t refined, processed, bleached and beaten to death. They are full of antioxidants, vitamins, minerals and fibre.
Sadly, when fats got blamed for cardiovascular disease, we were told by the experts to eat more grains. Grains are also carbohydrates and in their purest form also have fiber, vitamins and minerals but we don’t eat them in their purest form.
The western diets have reduced whole grains to non-nutrient based food like substances.
We eat bread, crackers, pasta, over processed foods. Cereals, white flour, white rice. Take all the real nutrients out of whole grains and you are left with little more than sugar.
Fat gets off the hook to some degree in the report as well with the finding that total fat and types of fat were not associated to cardiovascular disease.
I’m not one to gloat, but to all the doctors, , nutritionists, government agencies and paid for profit scientists that screwed over a couple of generations of people, “TOLD YOU SO”!!!
I’m sure this finding is going to try to be debunked by the sugar industry, the cereal producers, bread bakers and of course doctors who have no interest in change.
OK, before you go and get all freaky on fat filled foods eliminating all carbs remember the rules of nutrition and health.
Sensible eating is the way to go.
The quality of your food is important.
Funny how yesterday I wrote here about Paleo Diet facts and the same day, a few hours later, this study was released which is basically saying, a Paleo Diet is a good nutrition plan.
Joni is one of our #FitFriends who used a low carb nutrition plan that included healthy fats and look at the results that she achieved!
She ate great food that was straight forward and tastes great. Joni followed a simple plan that is systematic in its approach to getting real weight loss results and she looks amazing!
She followed the Metabolism Reset Plan, used our Facebook group for incredible support and made her health a priority. She knows how important it is to take care of herself so she can better take care of her family.
You can get this result too when you decide to join our September session of the Metabolism Reset Plan.
Paleo diet plans are really popular right now, well the have been for some time, but they are gaining in popularity.
First off, I really don’t like names or labels but for a point of reference we are going to go over what paleo eating is.
As with anything, there are many interpretations of what a paleo diet is. It’s much like being a vegetarian. There some are ovo lacto vegetarians, some are just ovo vegetarians, and on and on – you get where I am coming from right?
There are different classes of the paleo diet as well.
The problem with the paleo diet is only a problem with some old school thinking.
Paleo is essentially removing processed grains and dairy from your diet.
Let’s be clear what processed grains are: crackers, bread, pasta,cereal, muffins etc. Refined flour. Dairy is cows milk and anything that is made from it – sour cream, cream cheese, yogurt.
I don’t want to get all sciencey with you but…
You don’t need either one of those “food” groups. They are not essential to life or body operations. Neither of them are considered nutrients…. they are classes of food.
Let’s break this down quickly.
You still eat carbs on a paleo diet, hooray!! You just eat better carbohydrates.
The government and antiquated education programs drilled it deep into our brains that we need all of these grains! The truth, and scientific research has proven, we don’t need them.
For those old school physicians, dieticians and health organizations (looking at your Diabetics society and cancer society) that have been taught to push grains, they will argue that you neeeeeeeed them.
Veggies are carbs people – start cheering vegans.
You get better vitamins and minerals from veggies then you will ever get from bread and crackers.
Veggies will do the job 10x better than any cereal or bread that has been fortified. It’s been fortified or ‘enriched’ because it was stripped of anything good.
So are we good?!
You do not physiologically need processed refined carbohydrates.
Dairy… I need a shirt, dairy is the devil.
Again, we have been brain washed that dairy is vital to growth.
Get ready for more science…
Dairy, or any form of dairy is growth hormone for baby cows. Cows milk helps get baby cows to grow at a rapid rate – they need them big, fast.
And what has happened to our population with the over consumption of dairy…we got big, fast.
Cows milk contains an allowable amount of puss, antibiotics, growth hormone, medications, infection. Allowable by the government.
No other species on earth drinks another animals milk – so why do we?
There are a number of reasons for the above questions, but dairy consumption and eating processed food is at the top of the list.
Let food be thy medicine people!
You can abuse and hurt yourself with food or you can let food nourish and heal you.
I have been honored to work with thousands of people over the course of my career and I have seen first hand the benefits of eating real food.
It is life changing.
Need a few more reasons why eating real food is the way to go?
If you have an undiagnosed allergy, sensitivity, intolerance to processed carbs or dairy, a paleo diet will almost certainly help. Undiagnosed, because so many practitioners are stuck in old ways of thinking.
I live it. I am paleo myself.
The Metabolism Rest Plan was re-designed to be paleo based because the private clients that I had adhering to paleo were having great results. (New 28 Day session starting September 5th – click here to learn more
Like anything in life… you take what you want and use what works for you.
For many, the paleo diet works, makes sense and when you realize you don’t need the foods that aren’t considered to be paleo, it becomes easier.
What do you think?
Agree / disagree – have you tried or are doing paleo? I’d love to hear from you.
