Criticisms of the Paleo Diet

Criticisms of the Paleo Diet

  •  “This type of diet can get expensive.” It is if you compare the cost of a paleo meal with ramen noodles or bread which contains loads of carbs and empty calories.
  • “It’s difficult to eat Paleo in today’s society!” It requires careful planning and willpower but can be done. 
  • “But this is just a meat diet, and eating all meat is bad!” The biggest component of the diet is vegetables, not meat.
  • “The Paleo Diet is too restrictive and I can’t live like this.” The goal is to rethink your relationship with food and develop a strategy that you can live with permanently.

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
