What Is Paleo Diet?
We’ve spent most of our time adapting to the food we ate before the Agricultural Revolution: animal foods, wild vegetables, and fruits in season, along with limited amounts of nuts & seeds. Our bodies are built to consume these foods, but this is not what our diets look like today. Paleo is based on the idea that this mismatch between our bodies and our diet might be the reason for modern health problems like diabetes, obesity, and heart disease. Just like any other animal, humans suffer when we stray from our natural diet, but when we return to it, everything changes. Food stops making us sick and starts making us strong, energetic, and vibrant with health. More than just a diet; it’s a lifestyle!

AVOID TOXIC OR INFLAMMATORY FOODS
Toxic or inflammatory foods include:
Wheat, rye, barley, oats, brown rice
Soy beans, peanuts, chickpeas, kidney beans
Soybean oil, peanut oil, corn oil, canola oil
Sodas, cakes, fruit juices. Some sugar from natural sources like fruit is perfectly fine.
EAT NATURAL AND NUTRIENT-RICH FOODS
You can eat a vast array of vegetables (including root and starchy vegetables), meat, poultry, fish, seafood, healthy fats, eggs, and fruits. Nuts and seeds are good too, but too many can be problematic. Focus on eating a variety of foods that are high in vitamins and minerals. These include:
Liver, kidney, bone marrow, heart, brain
Leafy green vegetables
Spinach, kale, swiss chard, arugula
Meat from grass-fed ruminants
Beef, bison, lamb
Mollusks & other seafood
Oysters, mussels, wild salmon, sardines

OPTIMIZE YOUR LIFESTYLE
Evolutionary history can teach us about more than just food! Lifestyle changes can help keep your digestive system healthy, your body strong and resilient and your immune system primed to face down viruses and bacteria.
Get frequent sun exposure or supplement vitamin D when sun is not an option
Reduce and manage stress in your life
Implement healthy sleeping habits
Get frequent and healthy exercise
Sleep, stress management and exercise are the big three elements, other than diet, that are most important for optimal health.
