Is a paleo vegetarian diet possible?

(Continued)

The only foods that overlap in the paleo and vegetarian plans are fruits, vegetables, nuts and seeds. Translated, this would be a vegan eating plan, plus eggs, minus grains and legumes. "Following this eating plan could make it difficult to get enough protein, dietary fibers, iron, zinc and B vitamins," Turner-McGrievy says.

Research shows most people can follow a regimented eating plan for a short time. That's not the challenge. The challenge is finding a healthful eating plan you can follow day after day and achieve your long-term health goals. At this point, it doesn't appear that the paleo eating plan meets these objectives for most people.
