The Paleo Diet :: A Trial Period

11:35:00 AM


I have been reading a lot lately about the Paleo Diet and have been intrigued. So I have decided that I am going to try it for one week and see, firstly, if I can even stick to it, and secondly how I feel after a week cleanse of no processed foods, dairy, gluten, etc. I am going to keep a journal of everything that I eat/drink for a week and share with you at the end my findings.

Here are the basics of the diet from WebMD:

What You Can Eat and What You Can't

Go Paleo, and you'll eat a lot of fresh lean meats and fish, fruits, and vegetables, and healthier fats.
You can also eat:
  • Eggs
  • Nuts and seeds
  • Healthier oils, including olive oil and coconut oil
You can't eat any processed foods on this diet. And since our ancestors were hunter-gatherers, not farmers, say goodbye to wheat and dairy, along with other grains and legumes (such as peanuts and beans). Other foods to avoid:
  • Dairy
  • Refined sugar
  • Potatoes
  • Salt
  • Refined vegetable oils, such as canola
