Paleo Meal Plan FAQs
- What is the Paleo Diet?
The Paleo way of eating mimics the diet of ancient populations and consists of grass-fed, pasture-raised meats; free-range eggs; wild-caught sustainable seafood; and an abundance of fresh vegetables and fruits. The lifestyle promotes a diet of whole foods, limits processed and refined foods, and excludes dairy, grains and legumes.
You don’t have to live in a big city or near a gourmet market to have success. The approachable, easy-to-follow recipes found on our Paleo Meal Plan work regardless of where you live, and the majority of the needed ingredients can be found at your local grocery store—even the large national discount stores.
- What are the do’s and don’ts of eating Paleo?
- The Paleo diet is built around high-energy, grain-free foods like meat, fish, eggs, tree nuts and seeds, fresh vegetables, fresh fruit and healthy fats. Foods to avoid include anything processed, grains, dairy, sugar, legumes, potatoes, processed oils and alcohol.
- Why would I want to eat Paleo?
It’s the perfect balance for people looking to live a healthy, sustainable lifestyle. Benefits include:
- Weight Management – A diet high in protein-rich meats and eggs and fiber-rich fruits and vegetables helps stabilize your blood sugar and curb cravings with fewer calories.
- Improve Overall Fitness – Popular among strength-training enthusiasts and high-intensity athletes, the Paleo diet is power-packed with protein, healthy fats and complex carbohydrates that advocates claim maximize performance in the gym.
- Lasting Energy – Sidestepping refined carbohydrates and caffeine avoids the dreaded "afternoon slump" by keeping you energized throughout the day.
- Are there health benefits to following a Paleo diet?
- More and more evidence supports the idea that processed foods and grains are contributors to modern diseases like type 2 diabetes and heart disease. Paleo proponents say returning to a caveman-like diet could help improve overall health.
- What should I expect from following a Paleo diet?
- Those who have been on the Paleo diet also say that once all the refined sugar and dairy are cut from the diet—about two to three months in—their level of energy is noticeably higher than before, so they’re even more motivated to work out and follow a Paleo diet, all part of the lifestyle. The key to success is to start small and build on your success.
