Paleo Diet Basics

Focuses on whole foods with roots in our ancestral past: meats, fish, nuts, leafy greens, regional veggies, and seeds.

Keto Diet Fundamentals

High-fat, adequate-protein, low-carbohydrate diet aiming to induce ketosis, where fat is burned for energy instead of carbs.

Paleo Benefits

Aims to reduce processed food intake, emphasizing fruits and vegetables which support a healthy immune system and weight loss.

Keto Benefits

Targets weight loss through fat burning, shown to improve cardiovascular health and stabilize blood sugar levels.

Paleo improves gut health by cutting out processed grains and sugars, which can reduce inflammation and bloating.

Digestive Health

Keto enhances brain function by providing steady energy from ketones, potentially reducing the risks of neurological disorders.
