About the paleo diet:

The Paleo Diet is in simple terms the diet a cavemen would eat. So it takes out all modern processed food.

Why go paleo and is it healthy?

We are designed to eat this way, the modern diet includes to much processed food, which is too rich in highly refined carbohydrates and too low in quality food.

The balance of food on the paleo diet is very simple, and means your body will now get energy from fats and unrefined carbohydrates (in vegetables and fruit).

What results should I expect?

The increase in protein, fats and nutrients will mean your body will have the building blocks it needs to grow and develop to suit your goals.

By coming off a high sugar diet and removing all the inflammatory foods, your energy levels will be much more balanced. You will be less bloated straight away and strip your body fat.

How to eat?

Lets start with what you can eat. Its simple, anything you can catch, grow or pick.
