Paleo is eating real food – fresh, natural food like meat, vegetables and fruit.
Choose foods that are nutrient-dense, with lots of naturally occurring vitamins and minerals, over foods that have more calories but less nutrition. And food quality is important – you should be careful about where your meat, seafood and eggs come from, and buy organic local produce as often as possible.
This is not a “diet” – eat as much as you need to maintain strength, energy, activity levels and a healthy body weight. Aim for well-balanced nutrition, so eat both animals and a significant amount of plants. You won’t be lacking carbohydrates – you’ll just get them from vegetables and fruits instead of bread, cereal or pasta. Paleo meals are probably higher in fat than you’d imagine, but fat is a healthy source of energy when it comes from high-quality foods like avocado, coconut and grass-fed beef.
Eating like this is ideal for maintaining a healthy metabolism and reducing inflammation within the body. It’s good for body composition, energy levels, sleep quality, mental attitude and quality of life. It helps eliminate sugar cravings and reestablishes a healthy relationship with food. It also works to minimize your risk for a whole host of lifestyle diseases and conditions, like diabetes, heart attack, stroke and autoimmune.(c) Poliquin
