I’m Alfie Mueeth, founder of the Paleo diet for beginners. If you want to start on the Paleo Diet but don’t know where to start, this page is for you.

For me and the Paleo Diet for Beginners community, we focus on leading a Paleo way of life backed by scientific evidence. Our aim is to filter out all the noise and marketing gimmicks out there on the internet. We firmly believe that the Paleo way of life is not just a fad, its here to stay.

If it worked for out ancestors for over 2.5 million years, it sure will serve us well.

Paleo Diet For Beginners – What to Expect?


I am not gonna lie, I found getting into the Paleo diet extremely difficult because unlike other “diets” this was not a diet, it was a lifestyle and I was surprised at some of the hurdles and eye openers I came across on my “journey”. I had to go through and hell and high water to figure things out so I wrote my first book as basically a resource I wish I had when I was first starting out and maybe I wouldn’t have wasted all that time and I hope you dont waste time either and maybe you may choose to not follow the Paleo lifestyle





Here’s 13 things I wish I knew About the Paleo Diet before starting out


Once you get the ball rolling and start leading a Paleo Lifestyle, you will come across the biggest hurdle… This is make or break!!!

For me this was boredom! I grew up in South East Asia and I am used to a lot of flavour and spices in my food. On the Paleo diet, theres only so much Chicken and Broccoli you can stomach before craving some adventurous food. I fell off the bandwagon a few times until I looked around for Paleo recipes that had more flavour and I couldn’t find any that had good recipes so fast forward 12 months and I published my own.

Fat burning chef 150 x 150

Fat Burning Chef : This is my favourite cookbook on the internet! Others promise you hundreds of recipes more but this wins hands down because it links you to 28 of the worlds best Paleo chefs and their collections of recipes as well.The author Abel James also hosts the no. 1 rated health podcast in the US and UK called “The Fat Burning Man so he has a lot of credibility to go with this product.

Primal Blueprint

Primal Blueprint : This is my go to store for trusted Paleo weight loss products and supplements. These products really helped me on my journey and still do.

paleo treats

Paleo Treats : Its inevitable, you will be doing so well and suddenly the cravings will strike. You will start to crave chocolate and other treats. The worst thing is there are a lot of products out there claiming to be Paleo but they are not.

My one stop shop for all my Paleo treats are these guys.
