Paleolithic Diet

873   641 

The paleolithic diet (Paleo diet) - aka cavemen diet - is based on the concept that we should aim to eat as close as possible to the way our Stone Age ancestors did before the introduction to agriculture some 10,000 years ago. The premise is that humans have not changed much in 10,000 years at the genetic level. So, genetically speaking, we have evolved to thrive on a Paleo diet. The Paleolithic era lasted about 2,5 million years and ended 10,000 years ago with the advent of agriculture (Neolithic era).

The modern Paleo diet varies in its strict adherence but the major guiding principles are to eat lean meats (ideally grass feed and pastured raised), vegetables, and nuts. And, to stay away from grains, legumes, diary products, salt, refined sugars, and processed foods. Essentially, stay away from what our ancestors did not eat.

Many who follow this diet point to having better health, energy, and less gastrointestinal problems. They also point to the ability to maintain proper weight.
