Ok, we're breaking down the idea of what paleo is (and what keto is) in this 4 part video series. We started off with a broad overview, now we're diving deeper into what each diet is all about.
In this video, I talk about what Paleo is (remember, it's a diet of ingredients) and what it isn't (no gluten, no grain, no dairy.)
Paleo is all about the idea of humans evolving over the course of a few million years. It goes way beyond diet, although diet it mostly what people associate it with.
Common myths in Paleo are busted, Paleo is NOT a meat-heavy diet. If you've ever tried to catch and prepare your own meat you know just how hard it is to eat a t-bone every night when you're doing the work yourself. Ain't happening.
The "perfect" Paleo meal doesn't really exist, as Paleo is a diet of variety. Paleo follows the seasons, involves lots of intermittent fasting and opportunistic eating.
Paleo also includes consistent movement, and lots of it. Think of walking 10+ miles a day as part of your daily habit. That's how we evolved for the vast majority of our history.
Any in-depth inspection of Paleo will reveal that it's far more than a diet, it's a full on lifestyle, and in many regards can complement and have synergy with a low carb or close-to-keto diet.
Stay tuned for the next video on what Keto is, and we'll wrap up the series with how to supercharge both Paleo & Keto for making your life awesome.
