Have questions about the Paleo diet? Check out this article reviewing the pros and cons of following this diet. It discusses common concerns as well as the possible benefits and adds in the expertise of a Registered Dietitian, athletes and sports nutritionists.
I think this is a great article. I don’t think the Paleo is sustainable or ideal, but I support the fact that people can adopt healthier habits from following it. Since it encourages more fruits and vegetables and less processed foods, salt, etc., it can be a good starting point to adopting healthy habits.

If you are thinking of trying it out, please keep the following in mind:
– Be nice to your kidneys and do not over consume protein
– Make sure you are getting enough calcium & vitamin D (you will most likely need supplementation)
– Choose leaner proteins like fish and poultry rather than red meat. Beef and bacon are higher in heart clogging saturated fat.
– Remember that carbs are your primary source of fuel. Your brain functions off of glucose and your body needs carbs for both exercise and normal day-to-day activities.
