Welcome to the Ultimate Paleo Guide. We are the #1 resource on the paleo diet on the internet.
If you’re here, you might want to get started with some our reader’s favorite content:

Now, getting started, the paleo diet is known by a few names including the primal diet, the caveman diet, and the wild diet. But before we get into the deep parts of the diet, I want to explain very simply. In fact, I can do it in 140 characters.
The Paleo Diet In 140 Characters
Here’s the paleo diet summed up in 140 characters or less.

Feel free to use this definition when you explain paleo to your friends and family (or just click the button below to tweet).
If you want to jump into the details, the best place to get all the information you need about the paleo diet in in our Complete Guide To The Paleo Diet. But you can stick through the rest of the article as I take you step by step on what to do next.
Why The Paleo Diet?
Well, first of all, we’re not a fan of “diets” around here. Paleo isn’t really a diet so much as it’s a completely different way of looking at food.
Most of the processed food that we consume nowadays has only been around for the last one hundred years or so. Agriculture has only been around for 10,000 years or so. We’d rather not get into the specifics of what exactly cavemen actually ate, but suffice it to say that it was a lot more natural than what most people eat on the Standard American Diet (SAD).
With that in mind, paleo focuses on eating whole, nutrient-dense, unprocessed foods that your body can digest easily and use to perform optimally.

It’s easy to get tripped up by the details when you start eating paleo. While most of paleo is simple (see our paleo in 140 characters piece above), some parts of paleo can seem tricky. To better understand these trickier areas, check out the articles below.
