The Paleo lifestyle aspires to achieve optimal health by following a diet based on what and how our ancestors ate before processed foods hit the shelves. Before fast food restaurants were on every corner. Before all the additives and preservatives came on the scene and before those nasty Genetically Modified Organisms (GMO’s) were so freely put in nearly everything we consume.

It’s eating the most nutrient-dense, whole, natural foods that cause the least amount of irritation to the body. This includes fresh meats (preferably grass-produced or free-ranging beef, pork, lamb, poultry, and game meat, if you can get it), fish, seafood, fresh fruits, vegetables, seeds, nuts, eggs and healthful oils (olive, coconut, avocado, macadamia, walnut and flaxseed).
The Paleo diet eliminates all refined sugars, cereal grains, legumes and dairy products. It’s real food, with minimally processed ingredients that taste great, satisfying your hunger, working with your genetics to help you get and stay lean, strong and energetic, healing your body and keeping you overall healthy.
