Foods to Eat on the Paleo Diet

What is the Paleo Diet? Well, it’s based on eating the same way as our prehistoric ancestors did. It will help you to lose weight and will reduce your risk of getting diseases such as diabetes, heart disease and cancer.

So what can you eat on this diet? Well, there’s lean meat and fish, as well as fruits and vegetables, healthy fats such as olive oil and coconut oil, eggs, seeds and nuts. What you can’t eat is dairy (you can tolerate dairy but not everyone does), grains, wheat, legumes such as beans, salt, refined sugar, refined oils such as canola and processed foods.

The great thing is that you don’t have to count calories on this diet. It’s rich in fiber so will fill you up.
