Here’s a list of Frequently Asked Questions about Paleo, my ebook The Paleo Athlete and other common topics.
General Paleo Questions
What is Paleo?
The Paleo diet focuses on whole, nutrient-dense foods such as meat, seafood and eggs; veggies and fruit; and healthy fats. Put another way, it emphasizes foods which are anti-inflammatory, promote gut integrity, normalize hormonal function and balance energy levels.
Some people treat Paleo as a historical re-enactment, but the recommendations here on Stupid Easy Paleo are built on human physiology—understanding how our bodies work, right now, in modern humans.
