The Paleo Diet
The Paleo Diet is an effort to go back to eating how we’re biologically designed to eat, allowing us to tap into our genetic potential and start living healthier immediately.
Lose weight on the Paleo Diet
When you only eat real food and avoid all unhealthy food, you’re more likely than not going to run a caloric deficit – and thus lose weight.
Eat the following:
Avoid the following:
Carbs aren’t evil
Carbs tend to be calorically dense (lots of calories) without being satiating (meaning you tend to eat way more than you intended).
Try to get carbs from vegetables, sweet potatoes, and fruit.
Fewer carbs = less glucose in your system, which means your body can start burning fat as your fuel source.
How much to eat
Always start with a good protein source with each meal (eggs, steak, chicken, fish, pork) along with some vegetables. Add salt if you're feeling tired all the time.
Add healthy fats to the equation: avocado, almonds, walnuts, almond butter, olive oil, etc.
Eat when you’re hungry, don’t eat when you’re not.

Unlike other low-carb diets, which focus on protein, a keto plan centers on fat, which supplies as much as 90% of daily calories. The keto diet aims to force your body into using a different type of fuel. Instead of relying on sugar (glucose) that comes from carbohydrates (such as grains, legumes, vegetables, and fruits), the keto diet relies on ketone bodies, a type of fuel that the liver produces from stored fat.
