We’re in a unique position to make this recommendation, since it’s a popular recommendation among people who eat low-carbs for a variety of reasons.
But if you’re a Paleo dieter who is also trying to reduce your carbs, this article may help.
What is the Paleo diet?
The Paleo diet is a relatively low-fat, moderate-carbohydrate diet that aims to avoid most of the harmful carbs and foods found in modern Western diets.
It also involves a number of dietary restrictions, including avoiding grains, grains containing added sugars, refined grains, dairy, processed meats, and trans fats.
What does the Paleo Diet look like?
The traditional Paleo diet consists of: a grain-free diet consisting of whole grains and legumes, such as peas, lentils, and chickpeas; a dairy-free, nonalcoholic diet consisting primarily of dairy and eggs; and a protein-rich, low carbohydrate diet that’s mostly made up of vegetables and legume-based foods.
Paleo also has a low-sodium diet, which makes it ideal for people who have chronic conditions like high blood pressure or kidney disease.
The Paleo Diet is often promoted as a low risk diet for obesity and Type 2 diabetes, and a good source of protein and calcium.
It’s also a great way to avoid some of the common side effects associated with eating out.
Paleo dieters often eat in small groups, as opposed to groups where everyone eats a small amount of food together.
