You need to find what works the best for you and stick with that. Not everyone will eat bacon and sweet potatoes, others will.
Every book and person will tell you something different. This Way of eating isn't cut in stone, its a guideline to optimal health. Find your own path.
Yes, there are different interpretations: Primal Blueprint, Whole 30, Rob Wolf, Chris Kresser, Mark Scissons, Gary Taubes, etc.
For a comprehensive look at a glance and for comparison check out:
Paleo Diet Flow Chart
Is it Paleo?
Paleo/Primal/Atkins Comparison Chart
And for an in-depth look from many perspectives:
I recommend Mark's Daily Apple:
There are tons of resources on this thread:
And, Paleo from a woman's perspective here:
Essentially, if you eliiminate grains, beans and dairy as your beginning point (for at least 30 days) you will notice a big difference. Then you can start to tweak to your own body's repsonse. Some people tolerate dairy well, others not. Some people are more carb sensitive. For some the issue is fructose (so you have to eliminate fruit and things high in fructose... coconut oil). For others it's nightshades (potatoes, peppers, eggplant). Others do best on very low carb (eliminate starchy carbs), while others eat high carb and still reap the benefits. There is also a difference on how people view fat... some eat very high, and some moderate. Eating this way is all about learning to listen to your own body and note it's individulaized responses to food, while you optimise it's own ability to heal grow stronger. It's not a clear-cut path. The threads above will help you navigate the differences, and provide balance as you discover for yourself what will work best!
'An Apple A Day' keeps the doctor away...
NOTE: My weight tracker is NOT a truthful representation of my weight. Instead, I am using it as a tool to help me visualize my goal as though it's already been achieved!
Oh thanks for responding and for the recommendations! I will def.look into those.The book was a revised edition.... 2010???
Yes, there are some differences in interpretation, but you are also reading an older book. It's pretty out of date and from what I understand has some bad information. An updated version has recently been released, but I haven't read it. It's called The Paleo Answer.
Personally, I recommend Practical Paleo or The Primal Blueprint.

So the book I have been reading "The Paleo Diet" seems to contradict a bit with a website my crossfit gym reccommended: paleoditlifestyle.com. i.e. book says avoid sweet potatoes ad bacon and website says they are OK.
Are there different interpretations to this diet lifestyle and I just need to individualize it for myself?
I am starting this now!!! I am tired of my GI distress.... Praying and hopeful this will make me feel better.
