Let’s face it, eating Paleo has a few strict rules when it comes to what the dieter should avoid. We know that eating the modern Western diet is unhealthy and there’s science to back that up,1,2 but we also live in the modern world which makes avoiding the western diet tough at times. As a Paleo-eater, you know you can lose track when you start falling for too many non-Paleo temptations.

Whatever your reason was for falling off the Paleo bandwagon, it’s never too late to jump back in line with a little commitment and confidence.
