The Beginner's Guide to the Paleo Diet

The Beginner's Guide to the Paleo Diet
So you wanna learn about the Paleo Diet, eh? Here’s the ENTIRE diet in a nutshell: If a caveman didn’t eat it, neither should you. Now, obviously there’s more to it than that, and that’s what I’m going to cover in great detail with this article today. When you are following the Paleo Diet, you can eat anything we could hunt or gather way back in the day – things like meats, fish, nuts, leafy greens, regional veggies, and seeds. Sorry, the pasta, cereal, and candy will have to go! And instead of counting calories and perfectly partitioned portions (say THAT three times fast), you’ll be focusing on eating the right foods instead. And that makes me happy, because I hate counting calories. I don’t like keeping track of how much I’ve eaten or obsessing over how many grams of a particular nutrient I’ve had. Now, this article is SUPER long, so we took the liberty of converting it into a nicely designed guide for easy consumption (not literal consumption, unless you print it on bacon). Ready? Nope.
