Lion Diet: How It Works, What to Eat, Risks, and More – Everyday Health

The Paleo diet is an eating plan based on foods that our hunter-gatherer ancestors ate. This diet excludes most grains, dairy, legumes and processed food products.

Approved Foods

While it can be challenging to get all your essential nutrients on a paleo diet, you don’t have to give up on delicious meals altogether. We’ve got you covered with plenty of recipes for breakfast, dessert and even your daily snacks!

In general, you will estimate how much meat and calories you need per day, according to the FAQ. For example, Mikhaila says she’s 5 feet 6 inches tall and eats 1.5 pounds (lbs) of meat per day. She adds that a 6-foot-tall man should eat 2.5 lbs of meat per day, though you’d adjust based on your hunger level. At the outset, if eating a lot of fattier cuts of meat is unpleasant, she recommends eating lean cuts of meat.

In the FAQ, Mikhaila says she ate two ribeye steaks per day for the first months of the diet and now eats mostly lamb, though you do not have to do the same. Your choices are based on what makes you feel the best. Purchase the highest quality meat you can afford, though she says that beef patties (make sure there’s no pepper) from fast food restaurants are just fine.

Below is a sampling of what types of meats you might eat on the lion diet on a day-to-day basis, though the specific type of meat, number of meals or snacks, what time you eat, and how much is up to you (that is, the diet doesn’t detail portion size recommendations). The most important thing is that you’re eating only the allowed meats. Again, though, experts do not recommend following this eating plan.
