Paleo Food List

If you’ve read through the page on eating clean using the paleo method, you’ve probably got a good idea of what you should be eating to maximize your health and melt the fat.  But I know gamers, we like “Easy Mode”.  So here’s the list for your quest to the food vendor.  Don’t stray!  Choose the foods that sound the best to you.  Make sure you purchase enough food from each group to fill your plate portions!

Notice the lack of grains, pastas and legumes (beans)!  Those items used in excess can cause internal inflammation and they are the reason people get fat.  Quite simply, eliminate them from your diet when following the paleolithic method and watch the fat shred off.  This is your master list of CLEAN FOODS!
