What’s the Difference Between Keto and Paleo?
And Which Diet Should You Be On?
All of our recipes are both Keto diet and Paleo diet compliant. So you never have to worry when you're on our website!
But what exactly is the difference between a Keto and a Paleo diet? Here are the top 3 differences:
1. The focus of each diet is different
A Paleo diet focuses on food quality and nutrient density because it originated from studies on Paleolithic diets (AKA the caveman diets). Those studies found that people used to eat no grains, no legumes, and no dairy.
Paleo diets don’t just look at history though. They also take a modern and practical approach to living. But the emphasis is on eating real foods that are nutrient-dense and don’t add major toxins to your body.
A Keto or Ketogenic diet focuses on the production of ketones in your body. Ketones are an alternative energy source and are produced when glucose supplies run out.
So by eating fewer carbohydrates and more fats you can increase your body’s ketone production. Keto has been linked to various health benefits including weight loss, mental clarity, stable blood sugar levels, and even helping with chronic health problems.
In a nutshell...Paleo focuses on food quality, Keto on ketone production.
2. Keto is generally lower in carbs
Ketone production goes up when your carb intake is lower.
That’s why a ketogenic diet emphasizes counting your net carbs and keeping them low.
While a Paleo diet is generally still considered a low carb diet, especially when compared to most Standard American Diets (SADs), most Paleo folks eat more carbs than Keto dieters.
On a Keto diet, it’s generally recommended you stay under 20-30 grams of net carbs per day. But Paleo folks might eat between 50-100 grams of carbs each day.
So if you’re switching from Paleo to Keto, then just cut out the sweet potatoes, yams, bananas, pumpkins, pineapples, sugary fruits, and raw honey. Instead add in more healthy Keto and Paleo fats like fatty cuts of meat, coconut oil, and ghee.
3. Paleo is more than just a diet
If you’re familiar with the Paleo movement, then you’ll know that it’s more than just a diet. In fact, it’s a lifestyle for most Paleo followers.
Paleo emphasizes sleeping with the sun, de-stressing, moving more, and community. In general, the Keto diet doesn’t emphasize these aspects of healthy living, but we think you should take on these Paleo principles as well even if you’re just trying to lose weight using a Keto diet.
Paleo Vs Keto...Which One Is For You?
Here are my thoughts on this question:
Always eat Paleo. This the base diet. Then go Keto when you need to decrease mental fog, lose extra fat, or for other health reasons.
But when you eat a Keto diet, always make sure your recipes are Keto Paleo recipes like all the ones on this page and on our website!
