Paleo in 100 Words


The paleo diet is a nutritional approach based on the philosophy that humans should eat the way our ancestors did – before GMO foods, pesticides, growth hormones and antibiotics.

The paleo diet typically involves eating high fat, high protein and low carbs.

Fats and protein come from eggs, wild caught fish, and pasture-raised animals fed a natural diet of grass and bugs.

Gluten-containing grains such as wheat are removed from the diet, in addition to processed foods and sugar.

Some carbs are acceptable, such as white rice and sweet potatoes. The main sources for carbs are organic fruits and vegetables.
