Keto vs. Paleo

All Keto Diets are very Low-Carb, but not all low-carb diets are Keto

  1. The Paleo Diet
    • Is Low-Carb, because it eschews grains, beans, legumes, and gluten containing foods
      • But, it allows high-carb veggies, including beets, sweet potatoes, and carrots
        1. And, natural sweets like bananas, apricots, and honey
    • So, Paleo is NOT Keto
      • Paleo is just a lower carb than a standard American Diet
  2. The Keto Diet
    • Emphasizes Fat intake and Ketones
    • Whereas, Paleo emphasizes food quality, sometimes higher protein, and simply avoiding certain foods, not Ketone levels
