This is a difficult question to answer because it’s all relative. What may seem easy to one person may be difficult to answer. That being said, the paleo diet is slightly more difficult to follow than other diets. Don’t let that discourage you though. The paleo diet is also more effective than most other diets.
The paleo diet aims to remove unhealthy and even toxic foods from our diet. It is not about calories, carb consumption or other normal factors that most diets concern themselves with. The paleo diet is about eating food in its natural form without additives, preservatives and other substances that most people can’t even pronounce.
Grains, sugar and certain other foods are not allowed. These foods are not suitable for human beings. Our early ancestors did not consume these foods and since the paleo diet resembles a caveman’s diet, we are not supposed to eat these foods too.
This makes it difficult for many people who have lived all their lives eating foods that contain ingredients not allowed in a paleo diet. The exclusion of grain means that all breads and pastries are now not allowed. Not eating sugar means giving up comfort foods such as cookies, cakes, ice-cream, etc. It’s all just overwhelming.
