Is It Necessary to Count Carbs on a Paleo Diet?

The Great Carbohydrate Debate When it comes to the carbohydrate debate, the questions are endless.  Should we limit carbs?  Increase carbs?  Time our carbs?

Paleo Treats: When Do We Cross the Line

The paleo diet is no doubt healthy for everyone, as you can’t argue that eating clean and balanced is somehow working against you.  The idea behind a paleo diet is to eliminate sugar, processed carbohydrates, gluten and for some, dairy and grains while also focusing on the quality.  What that does is naturally increase our nutrient intake by eating more organic produce and balancing our meals with protein and healthy fats.  The paleo diet also teaches us about nutrition, how to know what we’re putting in our bodies and that fuels us.  It’s a win-win all around!
