There are many reasons to try the paleo diet, yet most people think it's too hard to follow or they feel overwhelmed by all the conflicting information out there.
That’s why I created a custom-designed paleo plan to help you gain all the health and wellbeing benefits while eating delicious food and learning about real food, minus the stress!
I’ve worked with leading experts in wellness and nutrition to create balanced meal plans and paleo guides to help you get healthy and fit in a way that works for YOU.

Whether you're a total paleo newbie or you're trying to build your own, personalised paleo protocol, my program helps to reset and fuel your body with delicious meals and real food.
The program is divided into two phases: 4-Week Reset and 4-Week Reintroductions. Both come with balanced, nutritionist-approved weekly menus, recipes, shopping lists and recommended reading to help you get the most from this way of eating.
You can choose to do the full program in one go or take it week by week.
I've engaged the world's leading experts to bring you the best learning material.
It's free? What's the catch?
Yes! The whole program is completely free. It used to be paid but after a few years of running it, I decided that EVERYONE should be able to access it. So many people have benefited from the plan already and I am thankful for their support in purchasing it in the past.
However, I always felt it's a shame that I can't help more people. For some, it is cost-prohibitive to buy online programs. Others feel like they can get a lot of similar content for free.
While I realise that the quality and volume of the content deserve to be paid for, I know that I will find more fulfilment and reward if more people are able to use it.
My readers and followers can always support me in other ways. I've published printed cookbooks and recipe eBooks and I run ads on my website. Keep coming to the blog and I'll be grateful!
I do ask for your email address but it's used to send you program emails and my editorial newsletter. I don't share it with any third parties or make any money of it. That's a pinky promise!
What is your nutritional philosophy?
The nutritional guidelines underpinning my plans are inspired by real food, paleo, and primal philosophies. I believe in clean, natural, nutrient-rich, anti-inflammatory and non-processed foods. During the "Reintroductions" plan, I bring in foods like dairy, white rice, pseudograins, and legumes. The meal plans are 100% gluten-free and low in sugar. All meal plans have been reviewed and approved by a qualified nutrition expert.
How will I access the content?
You will receive a Welcome email and links to download all your meal plans and bonus reading materials. You can view all PDF files on your laptop, phone, tablet or print them out for your convenience. All meal plans and recipes come with images and clear instructions.
How many people is the meal plan for?
The plans and the shopping lists are devised for two people and take into consideration leftover meals that can be used for lunch. Simply increase or decrease the amount of food as needed.
Are these plans suitable for families and kids?
My meal plans provide a shopping list suitable for two people. While I recommend serving your children real food, I also suggest checking in with a paediatrician when eliminating foods from the diet. Having said that, many of the past participants have succesfully completed the plans together with their partners or families.
I live in [country x]. Do you cater for metric / imperial measures?
Absolutely. My readers and customers come from all over the world (Australia, USA, Canada, UK etc) and I cater for all types of measures in the recipes. Names of foods can also be different from one country to another. This is why I even have an ingredients glossary. So in a nutshell, I've got you covered!
Are lentils and legumes (or dairy, butter, rice) allowed? I do well with them and include them in my modified diet.
These foods are reintroduced during my 4-Week Reintroductions Plan. I do suggest following the eating guidelines to observe any potential reactions you may be unaware of with these foods. There are certain foods I do not reintroduce that I recommend cutting out throughout all plans, namely wheat, refined sugar and processed soy.
Is my weight loss goal achievable?
I recommend beginning with a realistic goal of 0.5-1kg per week. You can also experiment with portion sizes and dropping the snacks, if needed.
Will the meal plan be adjustable if me or my family are allergic to shellfish or nuts?
The allergies won’t be an issue. I generally offer substitutions for protein as most dishes are quite versatile, so you’ll be able to work around that. I provide nut-free options.
And yes, you should consult with your health care professional before starting a new meal plan.
Can I do the program if I follow the autoimmune protocol (AIP)?
Yes! I provide substitutions for every meal to make this easy for those who wish to follow the meal plan on AIP or try out AIP.
