KETO… PALEO… ZERO SUGARS… NO DAIRY… Where are the dividing lines between these two diets and which is best for your health? Right now, both diet programs are extremely popular worldwide, especially in the U.S., for the ability to focus on and utilize all-natural ingredients to create pure, clean energy unlike ever before. Read on for more.

 PALEO: THE “ANCESTRAL DIET”

Did you know that PALEO is widely hailed as the “ANCESTRAL DIET?” You see, experts praise Paleo because they believe it focuses on only the foods discovered by early humans. Organic, whole foods that helped the body thrive when it needed it the most, foods including: 

ORGANIC VEGETABLES

FRUITS

NATURALLY-RAISED MEATS

WILD-CAUGHT FISH

EGGS

NUTS

SEEDS

WHAT TO AVOID WHILE ON THE PALEO DIET

Paleo follows the belief that because processed foods are high in artificial sugars that were introduced to our society and our diets later in life that the human digestive system is not ready to break down these unhealthy foods which will cause your body to struggle as you suffer. Severe digestion issues, inflammation and food allergies. Remember to avoid all processed foods and sugar and omit:

GRAINS

DAIRY

BEANS

LEGUMES (YES, INCLUDING PEANUTS)

WHY KETO MIGHT BE A BETTER FIT FOR YOU

The KETOGENIC DIET is a low to no-glucose/high-fat diet, which focuses on drastically reducing the number of carbs and eliminating the processed sugars you consume daily. This process will trigger your body into going into a metabolic state known we call KETOSIS! 

KETOSIS IN A NUTSHELL: Ketosis starts fueling your body with ALL-NATURAL ENERGY after your body eliminates the harmful/dangerous sugars which are disrupting your hormones and depleting your body of all its energy and ability to make KETONES!

KETONES: are pure energy created in your liver when your hormones can focus on doing their jobs of harnessing healthy nutrients, full-fat foods and protein! Ketones fuel your body with clean, pure energy efficiently and regularly so you can enjoy a stress-free, healthy life the way Mother Nature intended!

 THE REAL DIFFERENCE BETWEEN PALEO & THE KETOGENIC DIET

KETO & PALEO… the differences….decide which is best for your body

Remember, at the end of the day the less sugars and carbohydrates in your diet the better!

KETO, just like PALEO, also focuses on all-natural, organic ingredients, but tries to avoid carbs and sugars at all costs! 

PALEO tries to eliminate as many fats as possible including dairy including CHEESES, MILK, YOGURT

KETO focuses on breaking down fat to create vital, all-natural energy known as KETONES!

PALEO has much more flexibility with carbs than KETO (But this will disrupt KETOSIS!)

PALEO diet incorporates sugary fruits and starchy vegetables which KETO avoids because they’re too high in carbs and glucose.

PALEO is superior for overall digestive health and athletic performance. It is also a more sustainable diet plan than Keto.

KETO is praised for its weight loss, as well as diabetes prevention and controlling other diseases, including epilepsy.

PALEO doesn’t push any a strict macronutrient breakdown (Where you have to focus on the exact number of carbs, proteins, and fat that is recommended to you daily).

These diets offer a much cleaner and healthier quality of life when accomplished correctly. While Paleo allows you to slide in much more natural sugars an carbs (foods that drain you of your motivation and energy) KETO boosts your metabolism and digestive system to new heights to help you eliminate:

INFLAMMATION

DEPRESSION & ANXIETY

STUBBORN BODY FAT

EXCESS WATER WEIGHT

RESTLESS NIGHTS

UNHEALTHY SNACK CRAVINGS

IN CLOSING

Both of these diets are extremely popular for a reason. They work. These diets, just like most things in life are not compatible with everyone. Please know how your body works before doing these diets. 

Diets such as these can be particularly dangerous. Know how your body works.

Knowledge is the master key to life as well as fitness. Knowledge is the master key to the basics. The basics always win.
