I'd say honey is ok, since it is a "whole food" sweetener, ie, not refined from something else. It's just honey. A close second would be maple syrup. Another whole food sweeter (mostly)

FWIW, buckwheat is not rejected by everyone. It's technically not a cereal/grass but is related to rhubarb.

Exactly. I seem to be particularly cryptic today. Thanks, cerement.

tdgor is pointing out that there is no one definitive licensed and trademarked "Paleo". What they all agree on is eating real food (meat, vegetables, saturated fat) and avoid grains, legumes, vegetable oils, sweeteners.

Meat depends on budget: ideally (and if you can afford it) you want grassfed or pastured and get the fattiest cuts you can. If your budget is limited, go for the leanest cuts of standard meat and supplement your fat intake with coconut oil or clarified butter.

There isn't a single version of the diet. That list set forth the major variations for your consideration. I suppose it was a little elliptical. My thought was that you should probably do some work on your own rather than just asking for a detailed explanation. I mean, what is it that you do and don't know already?

  1. Eat whole, unprocessed foods. (If it has an ingredients label, apply scrutiny)
  2. Avoid grains, legumes, refined oils (hydrogenated, and/or non virgin/heat-refined oils), refined sugars, and/or dairy depending on your tolerances and/or goals.
  3. Focus on stress mitigation, improve your sleeping and lifestyle priorities.

  • Meat/fish/veggies: pretty much all you want
  • yams/sweet potatos/coconut/coconut oil/olive oil/nuts/fruit: in moderation, or all you want if you are lean and healthy
  • cream/butter/cheese: some say yes, some say no., In moderation if they're not causing you problems
  • treat: 85% chocolate, if you can manage to eat only a small piece per day (I can't)

Welcome jess. Please check out:

They're similar but their approaches are a bit different and appeal to different people. Explore them both (and more) and try which ever approach works for you. If you're a reader pick up their books.

A good cookbook is always a good idea as well.

Here is what I stopped eating... grains (breads, pasta, rice, crackers, etc.) potatoes, dairy (with an occasional cheat with a hard salty cheese, feta) sugar (candy, honey) peanuts/cashews, fruit juice

What I do eat... meat, eggs, fruits, vegetables, almonds, walnuts... try to eat grass fed meats (eat around the outside of the store, not up and down the aisles of processed stuff)

I look great, and feel great, and my numbers with my doc are fantastic!

Do it, you will not be sorry!
