What is a Keto Paleo Diet?


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. In the Reset & Revitalize program, I walk
you through, step-by-step, how to achieve your best health and overcome your health
struggles using keto paleo meal plans and recipes, as well as workouts, and educational
videos that can help you live a more revitalized life. I want you to have the kind of health that
allows you to enjoy life to the fullest, so I’ve created this program to help you in
that process. I hope you found today’s video helpful in
understanding what a keto-paleo style of eating is, thank you so much for watching, and I’ll
see you next time!

One thought on “What is a Keto Paleo Diet?”

  1. I am in my fifth week of Dr. Nicole's Reset and Revitalize program. I highly recommend this plan to anyone looking to improve their diet and fitness level. Keto/Paleo is easy to follow and maintain. I eat out every weekend, without issue and don't feel a need to "cheat". I am satiated and rarely hungry, even while fasting. The exercise program is amazing, I've learned so much and will continue to follow this program on my own.
