The Paleo Diet is not a low carb diet. It is a low-er carb diet (22-40% carbohydrates) than the typical U.S. diet (49-60%) but that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t be eating our fair share of vegetables and low glycemic fruits.
Modern low carb diets (4-20%) are really high fat diets that contain moderate levels of protein at best. Even worse, almost all of these low-carbohydrate diets permit unlimited consumption of fatty, salty meats (such as bacon, sausage, fatty ribs, and lamb chops) and dairy products (cheeses, cream, and butter) while restricting the consumption of fruits and vegetables. Cancer-fighting fruits and vegetables. (The Paleo Diet, pg. 11)
