The Paleo Diet, also known as the Paleolithic diet, also known as the caveman diet, is based around a nutritional plan that follows what we think cavepeople ate in the Paleolithic era – namely grass-fed meats, fresh fruits, vegetables, fish, nuts, and roots. The diet does not allow grains, legumes, refined sugar, processed oils, salt, or dairy. This is similar to many diets out there.
It is a controversial topic at the moment. We at Very Best Sites do not endorse nor condemn information – we are simply here to provide the best resources for the topics you want to know about. And, there are people who swear that the paleo diet has helped them lose weight and keep it off. The recommendation from this list came from Heather at Dooce.com, who is on this diet and likes it a bunch. So, here are the best resources for learning about and getting recipes for the paleo diet.
This is a paid website, but if you’re really serious about committing to a totally new way of eating, that might not be a bad thing. It might make you more accountable. Plus, the tools provided are great – they tell you what to buy, how to cook it (or not cook it), and you can start the plan with a two-week free trial. Worth a try, right?
