Easier if you just google it.

In any diet that eliminates sugar and other common foods, it takes a few days to get used to it. Once you do, it’s not that hard. I went low carb, not paleo, but they’re similar, and getting rid of sugar and grains feels good to your body.

You have not mentioned the reason your friend has advised you to go for Paleo. Are you looking for weight loss? or keep your blood pressure under control? Or just want to try a more vegan food style that inclines towards natural diet?


Every diet type has to have a purpose. Then it is customized according to the need and body type. Your dietitian can explain this in better way.

I would find Paleo awfully difficult as a vegetarian since it does not allow grains, beans, peanut butter, soy, or dairy. You would be confined to fresh fruits and vegetables, nuts and seeds, eggs, some plant fats like olive oil and avocado etc. It would be difficult to get enough protein, but not impossible, and difficult to adhere to long term unless it really did wonders for your body/health. There are long term raw foodists who eat only fruits, vegetables, nuts/seeds and plant fats but they tend to be far and few.

I personally did a raw food way of eating back in 2013 for 2 month stretches where I ate only fruits, vegetables, a few nuts and seeds. I was vegan at the time so I did not eat eggs. I did include raw soaked and fermented oat groats on rare occasion. I had to eat volumes of produce because that was my main source of calories, and I grew some of my own also to keep up with it all. I had to buy more often because all that produce doesn't keep long and I ate a lot of it. I was very underweight and eating disordered at the time so not the best person to share my experience in that regard.

As someone who has been in recovery from my eating disorder for seven years now, I find the less restrictive I am the easier it is to stick to something. I am pescetarian now (include eggs, dairy, fish but still no other meat in over a decade) and I feel and function much better, but as I said, I am coming from years of hardcore restricting that messed up my body in so many ways.
