Create A Paleo Diet Plan.
If you are just starting out on the paleo diet, you may want to consider developing a paleo diet plan. Our paleo diet plan is probably similar to other diet or weight loss plans that you may have tried in the past. The difference here is the paleo diet WORKS! If you are just starting out on the diet, a 2-4 week plan can be very helpful. Following a plan when you are first starting out allows you to create the correct habits the first time, and makes your diet much easier to maintain in the long run. Your plan should typically consist of about three key points:
- What your daily meals will consist of.
- What exercises you will do and when.
- Your shopping list for the next week (this you can fill in as you go).
Pretty easy, right? The core of what your paleo diet plan will have is what you will eat, exercise routines, and meal ideas for the next week. You can always add things if needed. A bodybuilder may put when they go to bed and what time they will eat. Much of your paleo diet plan will depend on your goals. Here is a good example of a one-week paleo diet plan:

This is just a rough guideline for somebody starting out. I feel the shopping list meal planning section is very important so that we eliminate going to the store and “impulse buying” our food for the week. As you can see, vegetables play a big role in our nutrition and good organic vegetables can go bad fairly quickly if not consumed. This is yet another reason of the importance of maintaining a plan. It helps to map out what you can ahead of time so that you can be as efficient as possible on the paleo diet. Don’t forget to check out our Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/ModernPaleoDiet!
