The Difference Between Paleo & Keto

The Paleo Diet

With the Paleo Diet you eliminate grains, processed foods & sugars, legumes, starches, alcohol, and dairy. There are versions and preferences within Paleo where some dairy is acceptable. Primal is much more open in relation to dairy.

Paleo encourages the consumption of real, whole food including: fruits, vegetables, grass-fed meats, seafood, nuts & seeds, and healthy fats. All in all, Paleo’s main focus is on what food is okay to eat.

Within a standard Paleo Diet you’re not going to find specifics on how much of one thing or another you should eat. An effective Keto Diet takes the whole food mandate of Paleo and adds in specifics on what types of macros you should be consuming.

The Keto Diet

We like to look at the Keto Diet as an extension of our Paleo life. Nutritional Ketosis requires a specific guideline in relation to the exact percentages (in terms of grams of fats, proteins and carbs) of macronutrients consumed.

Having a body that’s in nutritional Ketosis means you’re not using mass amount of glycogen to run your motor, instead, your body is using Ketones. This method is achieved (nutritionally) through approximately 80% of your caloric intake coming from healthy fats. Nutritional Ketosis allows your insulin to relax, your brain to be powered by the jet fuel of Ketones (along with naturally occurring glucose), increased fat loss, and long term health.
