The Paleo Diet Flowchart

We have recently launched the Is It Paleo app for iPhone and Android – a constantly updating on-the-go database of paleo/primal friendly foods.  Go here to learn about it, or here if you want to download it from the App Store or Android Marketplace.  Thanks for your support!

Have questions about the Paleo diet?  Follow this chart to see if you are eating the right foods!  I made a chart off a picture my friend sent me of a whiteboard drawing that went viral (I later found out it was done by Nicole Voelzke).  Since posting here, Nicole has contacted me  and  shared her work in it’s entirety.  Here it is for your viewing pleasure.



Nicole works at Crossfit South Hills in Pennsylvania.  You can follow them on facebook here

    This is a great chart! Thanks for sharing!

  • nice job on the chart cole. I like the chart. It’s stirring up some good arguments on facebook among the vegetarians and meat-eaters.

    • Thanks Craig! I have seen some of those arguments (and participated briefly in one) and am glad that people are at least putting intentional thought to their eating lifestyle. I appreciate your comment, stop by again sometime.

    Hey Cole, Is there any way I can get a high res image of that to create a poster for our office? Thanks for your time and consideration.

    • If you are just going to put one up for personal / office use and not attempt to sell it or make any proceeds off it (I don’t sell it either), then yes, I can get you a larger, 300dpi image.

      • Dan Prince

        That’s very generous. Thanks! I will not sell it. I want to make two small posters for the office. An anabolic labs rep introduced me to it and I thought it was great. Thanks again.

        • I’ll get it to you at the start of next week. The original files are on my desktop at home

          • Merry

            Cole, may I have you send me an image to print for my personal home office, as well?
            If you have already done this for your readers, I apologize for not finding it here. This is my first time here! Thank you!!

        • Where would you like me to send the image? Can either do email or dropbox.

          • Dan Prince

            Thanks Cole! either one is fine you can send the file or dropbox link to dan(at)princechiropractic(dot)com. Thanks again
