Those days are long gone, friend, and no matter how much you strive to tell folks that it really is that simple, they will always combat you with a "but, what about-----?". Sigh.

Bulgur would be high on the list of not-paleo foods.

I'm guessing bulgur is a no, since it's wheat. Though paleo is more of a spectrum of "good" and "bad" foods, no wheat seems pretty universal.

Back in the day, this would have been easy: no grains, no sugar, no dairy, no soy, no potatoes, no beans, no alcohol. Eat responsibly-raised and grown meat and vegetables, no GMO. Now it's a free-for-all mish-mash of conflicting advice. Start here: http://whole9life.com/2012/01/whole-30-v2012/

Grass-fed and pastured meats, fresh vegetables, saturated fat and Omega-3 fat can be eaten to your heart's content. Go easy on fresh fruit, nuts, extra-dark chocolate (treat them like a reward).

The Paleo diets generally tend to focus more on what you should be removing from your diet. The big ones are:

  1. Getting rid of grains (so no, no bulgur, to answer your example)
  2. Drastically lowering Omega-6 oils (no seed oils, no industrial vegetable oils)
  3. Getting rid of sweeteners (even the artificial and no-calorie sweeteners can spike insulin)

Dairy is still a gray area, much more dependent on how you respond to it.

Whole9 has a good shopping list that's meant as a companion to their It Starts With Food book. There's also several other guides on the book page, just scroll down to the "Free Downloads" section.
