Plant Based Paleo guide
prepping to start eating once again...tomorrow evening I will have beef stew during my lunch break at work. I almost want to keep going with the fast. Maybe I will.

The Plant Paleo approach is dominated by whole foods. It is informed by the evolutionary clues left for us by our ancestors, and it is in harmony with the most widely accepted scientific evidence we have about diet and health. By design, it is an omnivorous, nutrient-dense diet that is considerably higher in plant foods than animal foods (like the diets of many hunter-gatherers, Blue Zones, longevity villages, and other healthy populations around the world). It contains an abundance of natural vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, phytonutrients, and fiber. One of my goals is to design and utilize a diet that provides me with everything my body needs without requiring supplementation.
We humans can do very well on several types of diets with a few exceptions, such as the Standard American/Western Diet. Since 2010, I’ve spent a great deal of time keeping up with health news and research, and I’ve been talking about what I’ve found most interesting on my podcast, Latest in Paleo. Plant Paleo is the culmination of what I’ve learned so far and how I’ve applied it to my own diet. I am a formerly obese person who has beaten the odds and maintained 80-90 lbs (36-40 kg) of weight loss, and now have a lean body. This, despite the fact that I am a double carrier of many genes strongly associated with obesity.

Plant Paleo Basics
Eat mostly organic plant-based foods as your staples.
Eat small servings of naturally and ethically raised or (sustainable) wild animal-based foods and broths.
On calories: Most foods you consume should be nutrient dense and calorically sparse; overall meals should be nutrient dense; and total caloric intake should be adjusted according to goals.
Get your nutrients from whole foods instead of supplements, unless you have been diagnosed with a deficiency and are working with a health professional to correct it.
