So we are about 10 days into the Paleo Challenge. I hope everyone is hanging in there and starting to at least feel there gains. I feel like this way of eating is superior to many other ways. But that is not to say other nutrition plans do not work, they do. It just takes consistency. Some times explaining to other people who do not exercise or eat right can be difficult. Some people just don’t understand why the Subway Melt is terrible for you, because geez Apollo Ono and Michael Phelps says it the food of champs. Well we know better. Below is a post from the Whole 9, basically explaining the Paleo Diet in simple terms. Hope it helps.

I eat “real” food – fresh, natural food like meat, vegetables and fruit. I choose foods that are nutrient dense, with lots of naturally-occurring vitamins and minerals, over foods that have more calories but less nutrition. And food quality is important – I’m careful about where my meat comes from, and buy produce locally and organically as often as possible.
It’s not a low calorie “diet” – I eat as much as I need to maintain strength, energy and a healthy weight. In fact, my diet is probably much higher in fat than you’d imagine. Fat isn’t the enemy – it’s a great energy source when it comes from high quality foods like avocado, coconut and nuts. And I’m not trying to do a “low carb” thing, but since I’m eating vegetables and fruits instead of bread, cereal and pasta, it just happens to work out that way.
Eating like this is good for maintaining a healthy metabolism, and reducing inflammation within the body. It’s been doing great things for my energy levels, body composition and performance in the gym. It also helps to minimize my risk for a whole host of lifestyle diseases and conditions, like diabetes, heart attack and stroke. Source: Whole9
