    Default 20 Things You Didn’t Know About Paleo

    Paleo has received a lot of attention in the media over the past couple of years—some of it positive, and some of it negative—and there are a lot of misconceptions about what a Paleo approach to nutrition and lifestyle means for most people. With this in mind, here are 20 things I think everyone should know about Paleo.

    1. Following a Paleo diet/lifestyle today is not about re-enacting the exact diet/lifestyle of our ancestors.

    Instead, it’s about embracing the principles of their diet and lifestyle to a modern context: eating nutrient dense, toxin-free, whole foods, moving our bodies regularly, sleeping at least 8 hours a night, managing our stress, and playing and having fun. But instead of saying all of this each time, it’s a lot easier to just say “Paleo”

    True, sugar need not be toxic in small amounts. The problem is that if you eat anything other than whole, unadulterated food, sugar can be found in everything from soups to pasta sauces to salad dressings... even in places you'd least expect, like kielbasa. I rely on eating grain-free and sugar-free to control my diabetes without medications, but I know that even a tiny taste of sugar will awaken old cravings better left undisturbed!
