Paleo Diet Guidelines

As  a simple explanation we define a Paleo Diet as eating meat, nuts, veggies,  seeds, some fruit, little starch, no sugar, and no dairy. A Paleo recommended  serving consists of 40% carbohydrate, 30% Protein, and 30% Fat. This is a  starting point that is dependent on an individual’s specific needs or goals

Encouraged  Foods

  • Lean Meats such as Lean beef (trimmed of visible fat), Flank steak, Top  Sirloin, Extra-lean hamburger (90/10), Lean pork (trimmed of visible fat), Pork  loin, Pork chops, Any other lean cut
  • Lean poultry (white meat, skin removed) such as Chicken breast, Turkey  breast, Game hen breasts
  • Eggs from Chicken (go for the enriched omega 3 variety), Duck, or Goose
  • Other meats including organ meats and game meats such as venison, wild  boar, or wild turkey
  • Fish
  • Shellfish
  • Fruit
  • Vegetables
  • Nuts- Tree Nuts. Peanuts are not Nuts and are a no-no
  • Seeds

In Moderation

  • Oils such as Olive, avocado, walnut, flaxseed, and canola oils (use in  moderation—4 tablespoons or less a day when weight loss is of primary  importance)
  • Beverages such as Coffee, Tea
  • Paleo Sweets such as Dried fruits and Nuts mixed with dried and fresh fruits
  • Sweet potatoes, yams
  • Some lean bacon
  • Red Wine- Paleo says that 1 glass of wine (6 oz.) a night is legal. We  are pretty sure cave men had vineyards! Anything more than one glass per night  is a cheat (-5), and you can’t save them up from nights before. Anything over  one per night is a cheat.

Don’t Do It- These are Cheats

  • Dairy Foods such as Butter, Cheese,  Cream, Dairy spreads, Frozen yogurt, Ice cream, and All processed foods made  with any dairy products
  • Cereal Grains: Barley, Corn, Millet, Oats,  Rice, Rye, Sorghum, Wheat, and bread products including bread, rolls, muffins,  noodles, crackers, cookies, cake, doughnuts, pancakes, waffles, pasta,  spaghetti, lasagna, wheat tortillas, pizza, pita bread, flat bread, and all  processed foods made with wheat or wheat flour
  • Cereal Grain-like Seeds: Amaranth, Buckwheat, Quinoa
  • Legumes: All beans, Black-eyed peas,  Chickpeas, Lentils, Peas, Peanut butter, Peanuts, Soybeans and all soybean  products, including tofu
  • Starchy Vegetables: Starchy tubers, Cassava  root, Manioc, Potatoes and all potato products (French fries, potato chips,  etc.), Tapioca pudding
  • Fatty Meats
  • Soft Drinks and Fruit Juices: All sugary soft drinks,  Canned, bottled, and freshly squeezed fruit drinks (which lack the fiber of  fresh fruit and have a much higher glvcemic index)
  • Sweets: Candy, Honey, Sugars
  • Alcohol- Tequila is the preferred  Paleo liquor, but it is technically a cheat (-5). Anything other than 6oz of  red wine per night is a cheat (-5).
