Im basing my answer from the experience i had living in Bangkok, not other areas of thailand.
I think its going to be quite hard to keep it healthy, their meat regulation is pretty poor from what ive heard, its going to be hard to find decent grass fed beef for instance without paying through the nose.
If you are working/living out then then im guessing you are going to have your own apartment which means it should come with a kitchen, my condo in Bangkok had one outside on the balcony which i loved.
If you want to be strict paleo then you arent going to eat out much, it really sucks because street food is amazing in thailand. Problem is all street vendors use vegetable oil for frying, white sugar for sweetness and sauces with gods knows the crap they have in them. So to put it simply, if you are in thailand and you want to stick to paleo, you are going to have to cook your own meals.
There should be some sort of street market nearby where you can pick up fresh fruit and veg, this is what i really miss about living in asia. You can also pick up meat from these markets, but again you have no idea how they are sourced, its probably something you are just going to have to get on with.
