Paleo Diet Meal Plan: Tips for a Successful Paleo Diet
By Paul Christensen
This article assumes that you are already familiar with the Paleo diet and now want
to adopt it for yourself. The "Paleo diet" has an obscure sounding name and lots of
seemingly bizarre rules: no bread or beans? Despite the list of dos and don'ts, the
theory is the easy part, the doing it is the hard part.
Eat only what the earliest humans ate.
It's that simple. What isn't so simple is keeping your commitment. If you're like me,
or most humans really, goal setting easy. How many New Year's Resolutions have
you made? How many have you fulfilled? So before you jump into the Paleo diet
only to abandon it a few days in, set yourself up for success.
Make a Paleo diet meal plan
My least favorite part about adopting a new healthy eating regiment is that
invariably the cookbooks will list out recipes which require ingredients I don't have.
Since you can't buy 1 tablespoon of paprika, I end up buying a whole bottle... and
more than I need of countless other ingredients. Meal plans are tedious, boring,
and rigid. "I'll just go with the flow," I tell myself. The problem is that going with
the flow requires a mastery which I do not yet possess. I need a Paleo diet meal
plan because if I don't have one, I'll end up eating unseasoned chicken breast and
apples for every meal of every day. That is not sustainable.
You can make a plan yourself or find one online but you need a plan. A goal without
a plan is only a fantasy. Map out what you'll eat for the next 1 - 4 weeks. You don't
need an exact meal by meal "I have to eat this Tuesday for lunch" but you should
have enough meals to get you through. You should also make sure you have
enough breakfasts, enough lunches, enough dinners, and enough snacks. Never
underestimate snacking. If you don't plan for snacks, you'll either ditch your Paleo
diet meal plan immediately and opt for a non-Paleo snack or you'll be so hungry
when meal time comes around that you don't stick to the Paleo diet meal plan. You
don't want that.
Include a variety of foods in case you're just not in the mood for something and
make sure you, at least in the beginning, stick with what you know. If you can't
prepare, or don't really like, the food you're eating, you won't stick to your Paleo
diet meal plan.
Evolve: if humans did it, so can you.
Start with foods you know and like but don't stay there. Gradually introduce new
foods into your Paleo diet meal plan over time. Your first week should be only foods
you know and love. Your second week, try to eat something new once per day.
After that, try to incorporate something new and unusual into every meal. A key
component to the Paleo diet is variety. Hunter-Gatherers didn't have the luxury of a
grocery store, or even a Paleo diet meal plan; they ate what was available. You
need to intentionally branch out in the beginning because we have been conditioned
to only eat certain types of food (cereal, bacon, eggs, and toast for breakfast; a
turkey sandwich for lunch, pasta or casserole for dinner).
Ultimately, a written meal plan and specific commitment are crucial for your
success in converting to a Paleo diet. Hey, if humans could do it before the
invention of indoor plumbing, I think you can handle it too.

Where Does The Paleo Diet Menu Come From?
By Oliver R. James
Diets of every type and description are now a huge part of modern society. Given
all the choices, it's to your best interest to have a working knowledge of any diet
you choose to follow. A lot of the currently popular diets suggest limiting the
amounts of meat you eat. Cutting back on carbohydrates and focusing primarily on
fruits and vegetables is also a common theme. What makes the Paleo diet different
from any other diet is what it's based on, the eating habits of the very first human
Paleo stands for Paleolithic or the time period we now refer to as the Stone Age.
Another way to understand the Paleo diet is to call it the "Hunter Gatherer Diet" as
it's made up of foods that could be hunted (meats and seafood) and gathered
(fruits, vegetables, nuts and seeds). At its' most common level, the Paleo diet is
based on eating foods available to our ancient ancestors before the start of
agriculture and animal husbandry. The founding principle of the Paleo diet is that
modern humans are hereditarily suited to match the diet eaten by ancient man fresh unprocessed food. The Paleo diet is full of foods with a high nutritional value.
Lean meats and seafood, fruits, vegetables, nuts and seeds make up your menu
list. Foods created after the start of agriculture such as grains, dairy, sugar and salt
and any processed combination of this list are to be avoided as they lead towards
weight gain and a variety of health problems such as high cholesterol, heart disease
Because it promotes high protein consumption, the Paleo diet is popular with
athletes of many different sports. Basic components of the diet are chicken, turkey,
beef, pork, game meats, lamb, fish and shell fish, fruits and vegetables, nuts and
seeds. Root vegetables are super popular but try to avoid the starchy ones such as
potatoes and sweet potatoes. All of these foods should be free of additives.
Something we all should avoid for good health!
So now you know the theory behind the Paleo diet, you might be asking yourself
why you should give it a try. There are many compelling reasons about living the
"Paleo" lifestyle. A Paleo menu is naturally low in
carbohydrates and in calories. A diet low in carbohydrates has been shown to lower
the risk of developing coronary heart disease. The diet is also high in fiber - a good
thing. A good level of fiber in your diet helps lessen the chances of contracting
coronary heart disease or diabetes. Another plus for high fiber is the potential for
If you're an allergy sufferer, the Paleo diet is a great choice. A huge number of
processed foods made by humans contain gluten and/or casein. Gluten and casein
are common ingredients in developing allergies. If you follow the Paleo diet, you
will not be eaten any of these ingredients so that part of the allergy problem is
removed from the equation. "Paleo" approved foods are based on the menu
available to ancient man before agriculture came about. That means no salt, sugar
or additives. It also means on trans fats or hydrogenated oils. Consumption of trans
fats and hydrogenated oils is linked to serious weight gain and a whole host of
other weight problems. With the Paleo diet, you're giving yourself an excellent
chance to improve or restore your health. What could be better. Here's to your

basic food groups; like meat, seafood, fruits and vegetables. All processed food,
dairy products, grains and soft drinks should be avoided while on this diet; since
these items were not available in the ancient times. There are a lot of different
meals you can dish up while on the Paleo diet and you can serve them up to the
whole family. With the variety of fruit and vegetables that you can eat freely, you

away from the starchy veggies like potatoes. Nuts and seeds are also encouraged;
just avoid the salted versions though.

low in carbohydrates and high in protein, your metabolism will start to speed up
over time; allowing you to lose up to 15 pounds in six months naturally. By adding
a decent training program, you can significantly increase the amount of weight lost
on this diet. The diet is also naturally high in fiber, which is excellent for your

What You Can Eat On A Paleo Diet
In case you are not used to the food, you could have a little hassle identifying just
what foods will be suitable and also just what foods you ought to stay away from.
In principle, generally if the people surviving in the Stone Age could not enjoy a
specific food, you then really shouldn't, either. With that being said, there are
numerous foods on the market that can be wholesome and also best for your
overall health that just weren't enjoyed by our those in the far past. Whether or not

more independence, you can find key foods which have been emphasized.

loaded with protein, which in turn stimulates best growth. Several low in fat meats
that can be suggested for Paleo diets are generally pork chops, lean beef, London
broil, lean pork, flank steak, and in essence virtually any lean cut of meat. Lean
poultry, similar to white chicken meat or perhaps turkey breast may also be
encouraged. Eggs may also be a brilliant food to use in your daily diet, but ensure

Weight Loss Starts With Your Brain
How to Lose Weight
Hundreds of weight loss diets and exercise programs have been successful for
someone, somewhere. Almost all of them have major flaws that lead to rebound
weight gain in the long run. In my opinion, those with the fewest flaws, and
therefore the greatest chance for success, are the Slow Carb Diet and the Paleo
It strikes me, however, that focusing on weight or fat is of secondary importance to
the role of the brain. Ignoring brain health is like considering the body as a
mindless blob that responds to chemical stimuli from food all by itself. Nothing
could be further from the truth. The brain is the Great Wizard behind the curtain, in
control of everything from the get-go.
A Not So Radical Suggestion
Our brains shrink and lose function as we age, probably faster than they should.
Indeed, the growing incidence of Alzheimer's Disease, dementia, and similar brain
failures is a good indicator of sped-up brain degeneration in modern times. This is
NOT normal. Indeed, these disorders are completely unknown in some societies,
even in the face of aging beyond 90 or even 100 years old.
It is abundantly clear that brain health has to do with diet. Our local PBS station
made a big deal of that point during a membership drive recently, by hosting the
brain expert, Dr. Daniel G. Amen, not too long ago. Although his purpose for
appearing was mainly promotional, what he had to say about brain health was spot
The not so radical suggestion, based on all the information that I could gather
about brain health, is that diet is the key. Gee, where have you heard that before?
The question is, which diet?
The Doctor Who Would Not Die
As dramatic as that sounds, it reflects the experience of Dr. Terry Wahls. She
suffered from multiple sclerosis that was accelerating to total debilitation and an
early death. She not only stopped the progress of her MS, she reversed it -- by
eating right for her brain.
The reason that Dr. Wahls' story caught my attention, and why I thought it
appropriate to talk about it regarding weight loss, is that it provides the clearest
evidence that I have ever seen for what we should all be eating (and not eating)
every day of our lives. Eating for brain health is the key to everything.
Dr. Wahls' story is summarized in a video that is nothing short of phenomenal. It is
longer than the usual public video (almost 18 minutes), although it is worth
watching in its entirety -- for inspiration and for crucial advice about diet. Take a
look for yourself on her website (TerryWahls.com) and see what I mean.
It's All Paleo
Eating right for your brain IS eating right for your body. And what Dr. Wahls
discovered is essentially the power of a Paleo Diet, starting with the brain.
There is really not much else that I can add to her experience and advice. Oh, I
might quibble with some of her explanations about mitochondria and her focus on
them. That's what we scientists do. The bottom line, however, is results.
Specifically, health results. Real health results - not trumped up biochemical results
like cholesterol levels, hormone balance, or blood glucose spikes. These have
limited applications. The only results of any importance are good health, and Dr.
Wahls makes a clear case for what it takes to achieve it.
