10. Play by the 85:15 rule
The paleo diet is a great way to implement a healthy lifestyle or even to lose weight. But, like most diets, it's not necessary to follow it all the time. In fact it's probably better that you don't. It's usually recommended that paleo dieters follow the 85:15 rule, meaning you eat paleo only 85 per cent of the time, leaving 15 per cent for a balance of non-paleo stuff.
