What Is the Paleo Diet?
The Paleolithic Diet (alternatively called the Paleo, Caveman, or Stone Age Diet) can be traced to a 1975 book by gastroenterologist Walter Voegtlin, whose concept was built upon 10 years later by Stanley Boyd Eaton and Melvin Konner. As other 21st century diets gained traction (Atkins, South Beach, Raw Food, and Eating for Your Blood Type, to name a few) the Paleo Diet only gained mass popularity in 2002 after Loren Cordain, Ph.D. published his book, “The Paleo Diet,” which laid the groundwork for the Paleo lifestyle including the founding philosophy and meal plans. By 2013, the diet was Google’s most searched-for weight-loss method.
The Paleolithic Diet typically includes grass fed meats, including organ meat, eggs, seafood, vegetables, fruits, nuts, and seeds, and excludes all processed foods and oils, dairy, grains, legumes, sugar, salt, alcohol, and coffee.
The Health Benefits of a High-Protein Diet
The limited data that exists for the Paleo Diet suggests that a healthy person following the diet may improve their body composition and metabolic rate compared to the typical Western diet.
Benefits of the Paleo Diet include:
- You’re more likely to eat a clean diet without additives, preservatives, or chemicals.
- Gaining anti-inflammatory benefits from plant nutrients in fruits, vegetables, healthy oils, nuts, and seeds.
- You’ll increase your iron consumption from eating more red meat.
- You may feel more satiated between meals due to the higher intake of protein and fats.
According to scientific data, a high-protein diet sheds weight and boosts energy for three key reasons:
1.) Protein reduces hunger because it’s the more satisfying than carbs or fats. A 2006 study in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition concluded that eating a high-protein meal reduced the release of ghrelin, a hormone that stimulates hunger.
2.) Protein burns more calories while being digested than other micronutrients. Proteins burn 10 to 20 times as many calories during digestion compared to carbohydrates (5-10%) or fats (0-3%).
3.) Protein increases lean body mass (and muscle burns more calories). A 2015 study funded by the U.S. Army found that protein supplements enhanced muscle mass and performance when the frequency and duration of training was adequate along with the dietary intake for physically active individuals.

Our new PaleoPro Protein Powder is just like all of our quality protein powders found at Nourishing World: completely natural, clean food with no synthetic ingredients, chemicals, preservatives, or fillers. They are made with ingredients you know, with names you can pronounce.
Here’s what’s inside PaleoPro’s Chocolate Protein Powder: grass-fed beef, finely ground egg protein, cocoa powder, stevia extract, and sunflower lecithin (an essential fat for cellular repairs). And their “Naked” flavor has just TWO ingredients: grass-fed beef and finely ground egg protein.
Why Grass-Fed Beef Protein?
Whey, the liquid remaining after milk is strained, is found in other companies’ Paleo formulations, yet dairy is not Paleo-approved. And unlike other beef protein powders on the market, PaleoPro Protein Powder is not synthesized from collagen in the cow’s connective tissues; it’s made from the cow’s flesh which has a different amino acid profile than collagen. (Cow flesh is the soft tissue between the skin and bones and comprised of muscle and fats.)
Our grass-fed beef protein powder has high levels of protein amino acids: 26 grams of protein per serving. Pasture-raised cattle that are hormone and antibiotic free are used to create a beef protein isolate by boiling down beef flesh, skimming the fat, and spray drying the remaining protein and amino acids for easy blend-ability.
