1. Look out for paleo-approved carbs

Eating paleo means cutting out all grains, which means no rice, pasta, bread and cereals. Whether you like it or not, this lowers your carb intake significantly, which for some can result in fogginess, exhaustion and mood swings. If you find yourself need a carb boost, paleo-approved foods high in carbohydrates include: sweet potato, white potato, banana, chestnuts, water chestnuts (find them tinned in the Asian grocery aisle!) and plantain.
