The Paleo Diet Beginner’s Guide

Is eating like a caveman for you? Here’s the rationale behind the Paleo plan—and the seven basic rules you need to get started.

Even ancient humans were programmed to love the sweet stuff, but diving into a honeycomb as an occasional treat was much different than the constant stream of processed, refined sugars we end up flooding our bodies with these days. So on Paleo, you have permission to eat naturally occurring sweet treats like whole fruits, raw honey, coconut milk, Stevia and dark chocolate—the key, though, is to do so in moderation. Too much sugar, even the natural kind, will send your blood sugar spiking and dipping, which will prevent your body from burning fat efficiently.
