Eat meat and veggies. Don't eat anything in a fancy wrapper unless it is butcher paper. Go out and play in the fresh air and sunshine. When it gets dark outside, come inside and go to sleep.
Hi Josiah! I hope the Paleo Diet is something you'll consider trying because it's nothing short of bomb-diggity.
To eat how our ancestors ate before the Agricultural Revolution began for optimal health because this is how our bodies evolved.
-Grass-fed, organic meat
-Wild-caught, fatty fish/seafood
-Cage-free, organic eggs
-Lots and lots of fresh/organic/local veggies
-Some nuts and fruits and full-fat dairy (if tolerated)
-A lot of movement, sunshine and sleep
-Healthy fats (grass-fed butter & ghee, coconut oil)
-Grain-fed meat pumped with antibiotics
-Farmed fish pumped with antibiotics
-Excess nuts and fruits
-Processed foods i.e. foods with more than one ingredient that comes in a package
-Legumes (e.g. beans and soy)
-Having to explain to your friends and family why you choose to eat this way
Everyone, feel free to edit if I'm missing anything.

The term "paleo" encompasses many different versions and variations:
The Paleo Identity Crisis: What Is The Paleo Diet, Anyway?
From the article:
"We call it “paleo” for the same reason that we call it “Latin”, even though we have absolutely no idea how it was spoken. Just as Latin scholars attempt to maintain something syntactically analogous to written Latin, paleo dieters attempt to maintain something nutritionally analogous to an ancestral human diet.
This is where we have to start using science to draw tentative conclusions from the evidence we have. And while it’s tempting to get into speculative arguments about human prehistory, at the end of the day, we have to ask ourselves: What is the biochemistry of humans? How does human metabolism work, today, right now?"
