Introduction to the Paleo Diet:

Definition: The Paleolithic diet, or the "diet of ancient people," is based on the idea that the human body is better adapted to food similar to what our ancestors consumed in the Paleolithic era (3 million – 100,000 years ago).

Main concept: The Paleo diet suggests consuming food available to ancient people and excluding modern products such as grains, dairy, and processed foods.

Key Principles of the Paleo Diet

What to include: Emphasis is placed on consuming lean proteins (meat, fish) and fresh vegetables.

What to exclude: Grains and products based on them are excluded as they are not considered a natural part of the human diet.

Benefits of the Paleo Diet:

Favorable changes in metabolism: Studies indicate the potential for weight loss and improved metabolism when following the Paleo diet.

Improvement in skin and hair condition: Advocates note an improvement in the condition of the skin, hair, and nails.

Paleo and Keto Diet:

Similarities: Both diets support low carbohydrate intake, high fat content, and prioritize natural products.

Differences: The Keto diet more strictly focuses on the ratio of macroelements and carbohydrate restriction.

Possibility of combination: Both diets successfully combine, emphasizing the use of natural products and the exclusion of processed ones.


Individual approach: The decision to implement the diet should be based on informed choice. 

Consultation with a doctor or dietitian is recommended before adopting the Paleo diet, especially in the presence of chronic illnesses.
