Compare The Paleo Diet to Other Diets
Some diets are just fads promising unrealistic claims without any research to back it up. That’s where The Paleo Diet® is different. We’re a lifestyle, not a fad, and we’re here to stay. Our protocol is based on an increasing body of research that explores the efficacy of eating the way our ancestors did.
The goal of a keto diet is to enter ketosis, a metabolic state where your body burns fat for fuel instead of glucose. While periodic, short-term ketosis can be part of The Paleo Diet®, we don’t support it as a long-term strategy.
When limited to just plant-based foods, you may miss out on important vitamins and nutrients that you’d get from eating meat. There’s also a tendency fill up on nutrient-poor grains and legumes. The Paleo Diet® loads up on meats, fish, fruits and veggies and some nuts and seeds to ensure we’re getting all the essential amino acids our body needs.
Our Paleolithic ancestors likely went through periods of fasting, and we can duplicate this natural state of ketosis through intermittent fasting. The benefits are numerous, but what you eat between periods of fasting are critical.
