The paleo diet is based on a rough dietary plan modeled after what our ancestors may have consumed during the paleolithic era. The diet itself is extremely healthy and wholesome if adhered to. Thousands of people all over the world have reported many health benefits and positive results from adopting this diet. While the paleo diet may not be the panacea for all ills, it has numerous benefits.
The diet itself is pretty easy to understand conceptually. You have a list of foods that you can eat and a list of foods that you should not eat. It is 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.
You’ll need to be determined to get over the initial hump when your body is adjusting to the new foods. You will have cravings that will be gnawing at you constantly. Sugar cravings for the most part. Once you get past this, it will be smooth sailing.
So what are the best paleo foods?
The paleo foods you consume will be nutrient dense and natural. It is highly recommended that you eat organic produce and grass fed meats. Even eggs should be free range. However, this may prove to be expensive. So, if you cannot afford organic vegetables and grass fed meats, then by all means get the normal produce and meats. Most importantly, stick to the food list recommended by the diet.
