Can a Caveman Survive The Keto 30?

A Guide to Unleashing The Keto 30 Benefits while Staying True to Paleo Roots

For years, the Paleo diet and Ketogenic diet have been recognized as two diet structures that burn fat efficiently, accelerate weight loss, and lead to a healthier all-around lifestyle. While both diets are founded on some of the same core principles, their differences tend to push individuals toward one or the other. But, let’s pause for a second and consider the individuals who are immersed in Paleo dieting, but want to truly maximize their benefits by entering a state of Ketosis.* This article will illustrate the similarities and differences of the two diets, then provide a few quick tips to surviving The Keto 30. Lastly, this article will provide a few Ketogenic recipes that can easily be modified to fit perfectly within recognized Paleo guidelines.

Keto vs. Paleo: Similarities & Differences

Ketogenic Diet Paleo Diet
Grains NO NO
Legumes NO NO
Refined Sugar NO NO
Healthy Fats (nuts, seeds, animal fats, coconut oil) YES YES
Quality Animal Protein YES YES
Non-Starchy Vegetables YES YES
Dairy YES NO
Fruit MAYBE YES
Starchy Vegetables MAYBE YES

 

As you can see, each diet has its own restrictions and allowances. By now, you’ve likely heard that in addition to the restrictions and allowances of a Ketogenic diet, to achieve Ketosis, it is necessary to abide by the proper breakdown of macronutrient intake of 75% Fats, 20% Protein, and 5% Carbohydrates. The remainder of this article is meant to educate you and provide you with an attack plan for the Keto 30 that won’t break the rules of the Paleo diet. Your biggest takeaway should be that the foods you’re eating don’t have to drastically change, but rather, the macronutrient breakdown of your consumption needs a shift and there are finally supplements on the market that can make this shift easier than ever! Chances are, if you are already avoiding all dairy, then you have dairy substitutes that are easy to plug into otherwise Keto recipes. These substitutes can then be easily supplemented with KetoLogic products such as a Meal Replacement** and BHB to achieve Ketosis*.

A Ketogenic meal plan abiding by recognized Paleo principles might look like this:

Breakfast

Lunch

     • Taco Salad

  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 8 cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 2 green onions, sliced thin
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 avocados, diced
  • 2 teaspoons chili powder
  • ½ cup canned jalapenos
  • 2 teaspoons paprika
  • dash hot sauce
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 cup sour cream (optional)*
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 cup salsa
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 2 cups shredded cheddar (optional)*
  • ¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1 cup olive oil
  • 5 ounces mixed greens or romaine lettuce
  • 1/2 – 1 cup vinegar, balsamic or apple cider recommended
*Avocado quantity can be increased to offset a reduction in fat derived from dairy. Also consider using a Paleo cheddar cheese if necessary.

Dinner

Parmesan-Encrusted Halibut

  • 1-2 pounds halibut (about 6 filets)
  • 1 tablespoon kosher salt
  • 1 stick butter (grass fed)
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper
  • 3 tablespoons grated Parmesan*
  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 1 tablespoon panko bread crumbs
  • 1 tablespoon dried parsley
* Look for a dairy-free Paleo cheese and then consider incorporating KetoLogic BHB if you need to avoid Parmesan.

These meals likely resemble meals you’ve eaten countless times since beginning a Paleo diet. By making relatively small adjustments to these meals, and supplementing your established diet made easy through the use of a Keto-friendly Meal Replacement shake, you can witness rapid fat burning and weight loss results. Individuals on the Paleo diet can thrive on The Keto 30 challenge after adjusting macronutrient intake to achieve Ketosis. The Keto 30 is designed to enable participants to witness and feel their bodies in Ketosis, while dispelling the fear that Keto and Paleo can’t coexist.

* Ketosis occurs when the body does not rely on glucose as its primary energy source, but rather the body burns stored fats to generate energy. By consuming a large volume of fats relative to proteins and carbohydrates, the body begins to rely on these fats as its primary energy source.
** KetoLogic Meal Replacement contains a small amount of whey protein and thereby contains a small amount of dairy.
