The paleo diet is the way of eating that runs on the same foods that your hunter-gather ancestors supposedly ate such as fruits, vegetables, seafood, meats, and nuts. By following these simple nutritional guidelines, your diet is more in line with the evolutionary pressures that shaped your current genetics, which in turn positively influences health and well being. The diet is said to lessen the body's glycemic load, and has a healthy ratio of saturated-to-unsaturated fatty acids, which increases the vitamin and nutrient consumption, and contains an optimal balance of protein, carbohydrates and fat. For the paleo diet, you will see fresh fruits and vegetables, fresh meat on the menu. The paleo diet is all about eating foods that are straight from the Earth just as your ancestors did. Those ancestors didn't have any livestock or crops to call their own, so it is best to go with grass-fed and organic varieties of meat, fruits and vegetables whenever possible to limit your exposure to pesticides, antibiotics, and other chemicals that didn't exist back then. It is suggested that people on Paleolithic diets get about 35 percent of their calories from fats, 35 percent from carbohydrates, and 30 percent from protein. Going paleo means you are giving up modern processed foods.

When it comes to eating paleo food ideas, anything that comes in a box, bag or jar should be avoided on the paleo diet, just like anything that just was not consumed back then. That means that on a paleo diet there are no grains, dairy, legumes or added salt. While potatoes are generally outlawed on a paleo diet, it is okay to eat them sparingly as long as you earn them through exercise. Alcohol and honey are also generally not considered to be paleo, but red wine tends to be the closest option that there is to a paleo drink, and honey is far preferred to using table sugar or artificial sweeteners. A paleo diet isn't just about food, as exercise is a vital part of the live-by-your-genetic-code equation and diet. Surviving in the Stone Age meant that there was a constant on-the-go lifestyle that probably required about 4,000-plus calories a day. Even most people who go to the gym on a regular basis won't need to eat that many calories, but the principle of using food as fuel to exercise still stands for the diet. Eating on a paleo dietrequires a lot of planning, preparation time, and mental resolve.
