Whether you are new to the Paleo diet or you have been following it for years we've come across a pocket guide that can help you with your food choices. The Paleo (io) app for your iPod touch, iPad, and iPhone is a guide and food list that makes it possible for you to follow the diet and even discover new items. Often people give up on a “diet” because it’s too confusing or they are unsure of the foods that they can eat. This app is meant to help users not just follow a “diet” but make a lifestyle choice.
If you're having a hard time with the Paleo Diet and aren't really sure of the foods that fit the Paleo (io) app can work as a wonderful resource and guide. Of course it's meant for anyone to use but those new to Paleo will find it especially helpful. The way this app works is that you can enter a food into the search box and then the app will give you an instant answer of whether it adheres to the Paleo diet or not. The app can come in especially handy when you are out grocery shopping, at a restaurant, or just trying to figure out what to cook for dinner.
The app requires iOS 7.0 or later to use and currently has four out of five stars from users. Customers have mentioned how easy it is to use and how complete the information is. In its latest update additional items were added to the food list, there were some small bug fixes, a tutorial was added, and resource links were also updated.

Key Features of the App
The Paleo (io) app is a resource guide of course but after that its number one goal seems to be user-friendliness. You get instant answers to your food question so that Paleo becomes a simple way of life. The app searches through more than 3,000 food items with ease and your answers appear as a red thumbs down or green thumbs up. You also have the option of getting more information on the Paleo diet, again a very useful tool for beginners. In theory the Paleo diet is pretty easy to follow just eat seeds, nuts, fruits, meats, and vegetables but once you start looking at the different food options it easy to feel confused here and there and end up veering off-course.
