Paleo Basics: Q & A

What is Paleolithic Nutrition ?

Conceptually Paleolithic Nutrition is modern man’s attempt to model the eating habits of our paleolithic ancestors. Paleolithic refers to the era 2.6 million to 10,000 years ago. Or, in other words, the era in which 99% of human evolution happened in. One might say that eating paleo is the way we were evolved to eat.

*Note: Paleolithic nutrition/diet is a concept and should be used to make informed decisions about what goes into our body. It is not a religion. It is not a cult. Shy away from those whom try to make it complicated or cult like.

  • Insulin Sensitivity
  • Decreased hunger
  • Improved athletic performance
  • Sexual prowess ( half joke half truth … more to come on that )
  • Thriving instead of surviving…

What foods should I eat ?

Keep it simple. Meats. Poultry. Fish. Veggies. Moderate fruit. Some nuts (shelled plz). Natural fats.

As I heard Robb Wolf say in a podcast of his (paraphrase)

” Keep it simple, just eat a hunk of meat with a plate of veggies.”
