I often recommend and talk about a keto-paleo style of eating, so naturally a question I am often asked is, “What is a keto-paleo style of eating?” It’s a great question, and in today’s video, I’m going to answer it Hey there, Dr
Nicole here, and today I’m going to explain what a keto-paleo style of eating is There’s so much information circulating out there about keto-paleo, it can be hard, and sometimes time-consuming, to navigate through everything Others might describe this style of eating differently, but today I’m going to explain the way that I use the term in my life and in my Reset & Revitalize program Keto is short for ketogenic and describes the macronutrient content of your food – meaning, the amount of carbohydrates, fats and proteins that make up your diet A ketogenic style of eating has a high fat, moderate protein, low carbohydrate macronutrient content
This style of eating encourages your metabolism to burn fat for fuel, instead of sugar or glucose Fat’s burned in the form of ketones, hence the term keto or ketogenic Paleo refers to the specific foods that our ancestors ate and the foods for which our genetics are optimized Paleo foods include quality meats and organ meats, seafood, eggs from pasture-raised chickens, vegetables, fruits, and raw nuts and seeds A paleo style of eating excludes refined grains, sugar, legumes, and processed foods, and also dairy
I typically recommend that people avoid dairy, with two exceptions: grass-fed butter and ghee You can watch my video on dairy to learn why dairy can be problematic To summarize, ketogenic refers to the macronutrient content of your food: so a high fat, moderate protein, low carbohydrate diet; and paleo refers to the specific foods that make up this dietary pattern So, a keto-paleo style of eating would include quality meats and organ meats, seafood, pastured eggs, low-carbohydrate vegetables and fruits, and raw nuts and seeds, with an emphasis on healthy fats and limiting vegetables and fruits that are high carbohydrate Eating keto-paleo can have tremendous health benefits, like increased energy and improved metabolism, so it’s a style of eating that I personally follow and I also recommend in the meal plans for the Reset & Revitalize program
