Offhand, I don’t recall the first paleo diet score proposed several years ago.
From June 2020 in Nutrition Research Reviews:
In a PubMed searched up to December 2019, 14 different PaleoDiet definitions were found. We observed some common components of the PaleoDiet among these definitions although we also found high heterogeneity in the list of specific foods that should be encouraged or banned within the PaleoDiet. Most studies suggest that the PaleoDiet may have beneficial effects in the prevention of cardiometabolic diseases (type 2 diabetes, overweight/obesity, cardiovascular diseases and hyperlipidemias) but the level of evidence is still weak because of the limited number of studies with large sample size, hard outcomes instead of surrogate outcomes and long-term follow-up. Finally, we propose a new PaleoDiet score composed of 11 food items, based on a high consumption of fruits, nuts, vegetables, fish, eggs and meats; and a minimum content of dairy products, grains and cereals, and legumes and practical absence of processed (or ultra-processed) foods or culinary ingredients.
