How To Make Your Own Paleo-paleo Keto Diet

If you aren’t familiar with Primal, or Keto Diet, here’s what the Paleo-paleo protocol looks and sounds like, what it lacks in fat grams it makes up for, and why it’s the best way to manage your metabolic system.

I hope this new format for making keto paleo paleo makes it a bit easier for people to comprehend and understand. It’s no secret that people in the keto community have a hard time following and understanding what the word Keto means, what the Paleo-paleo is, etc. This is why I’m writing this series.

You may see the term “Paleo-paleo” mentioned a lot in various articles, articles, and blog posts. It’s a term that people use when they are referring to Primal or Keto Diet, or trying to make their diet look and act like Primal. In addition to the word “paleo-paleo”, it’s important to understand what it lacks in fat grams it makes up for in macronutrients. The Paleo-paleo diet is best described as a nutrient dense diet that contains plenty of protein, carbs, fiber, and omega 3 fatty acids. There are no grains (gluten free), no dairy, no sugars, no legumes (beans), no nuts, no seeds, and no refined sugar. It’s also important to know that there is zero carbohydrate in the Paleo-paleo diet. This means no refined sugar, no fructose, no high fructose corn syrup, no high fructose corn syrup sweeteners, no white sugar, no malt syrup (processed corn and wheat), and of course a very minimal form of dairy. What it lacks in calories, this diet made up for in protein, carbs, fiber, and omega-3’s. 

This is a common misconception of how people make a keto-paleo diet. People often use the phrase “the Paleo diet” or “keto-paleo diet”, but the difference is, the Paleo Diet has little to no carbs, dairy, or refined sugar to begin with, while the keto diet has tons of it. In the beginning of this post, I’ll try to answer questions people may have about Keto-paleo/Primal-paleo and the difference in what the 2 diets lack. But first, let me define both of these terms.

Macro-nutrient Distribution

The macro-nutrient distribution for the keto-paleo diet or primal-paleo is a bit less restrictive than what the Paleo Diet is. However, it lacks a few key macronutrients that are important to maintaining metabolic health. These macronutrients are fat, protein, and carbs, which are all essential for good health. When people think about a Primal or Keto diet or Keto-paleo, they tend to think about the quantity and quality of calories you get in. This concept is somewhat correct-but not 100% accurate. I’ll cover the differences in a bit later on. While it may seem like this is the “best” way to make a keto-paleo, in reality, it’s far from it. The keto-paleo has some benefits, but it’s just as easy to lose weight and improve your health while eating very little or no animal products, grains, or dairy products. If you still feel like this sounds too restrictive, I highly recommend trying the Primal or Keto Diet first and seeing what works best for you. I would also recommend adding 1-2 servings of high-quality animal products each week with the keto-paleo.
