Your Quick Guide to Going Paleo

The Paleo diet is a popular diet which focuses on the primal foods that humans need. The idea behind Paleo is eating foods in their most natural form-foods that came from the Earth and did not have to be made by man. If the caveman didn't eat it, you can't either. The theory & purpose behind this diet is that we will be leaner and less likely to develop health issues such as diabetes, heart disease, cancer, and other health conditions.

I personally have had a lot of luck on this diet within a matter of just a few months since this diet stays away from processed junk and focuses on the clean & natural. The biggest weakness that someone might have going Paleo is staying away from packaged & processed foods-at least in the beginning. paleo101   So what's allowed on the Paleo Diet?
