The paleo diet is based on the way people ate during the Paleolithic era, back in the days of hunters and gatherers. So, the staples of paleo diet are lean meats, fish, fruits, veggies, nuts and seeds, all the things humans ate before the invention of modern agriculture, when wheat took center stage.
The keto diet is designed to shift a person into a state of ketosis, which burns fat rather than carbs to create energy. In order to get into this state, a person needs to consume a much higher percentage of fatty foods like avocados, meats, seeds, nuts, and eggs while limiting carbs as much as possible. A lot of people use this diet for weight loss because of the fat burning elements, and because they stay fuller longer eating this way, but people have seen a whole host of additional benefits, including decreased inflammation, increased mental clarity, reduced mood swings and more.
You can be Paleo, you can be Keto, or you can be Paleo and Keto at the same time, since the two aren’t mutually exclusive. Fortunately, KNOW Better cookies fit into both diets! How do you paleo?
