Paleo isn't for everyone.
Firstly, figure out how you want to eat and why. Do you want to eat foods that are close to nature? Do you want to give up foods that come from animals? Do you want to cut out just processed foods and milk products? Etc...
Secondly, if you have any food sensitivities that need to be addressed there is probably a way of eating that can cater to that. If not, then see if you have any genetic factors that need to be addressed, like if heart disease or diabetes runs in your family. Sometimes certain ways of eating can work against you.
Overall, staying close to nature will probably be your best bet if there isn't a certain style of eating you want to follow for ethical or health reasons. Cutting down on processed foods (frozen meals, sugary cereals, etc) and incorporating more fruits, veggies, fresh meats, and oils is a good start. When buying boxed/bagged foods avoid ones that have a long ingredient list. Stuff like that.
