Often referred to as, “The Caveman Diet” or “Primal Diet”, the Paleo Diet is a high-protein plan that encourages us to get back to the diet of our hunter-gatherer ancestors. If you could pick it, pull it, kill it, or it had a mother, then you can eat it. There’s nothing from a box, a bag, a jar or a can.
People who fuel their bodies on this ancestral diet eschew agricultural-era foods such as grains, legumes, and dairy. Instead, they focus their eating efforts on items such as meat, fish, eggs, fruits, nuts, seeds, and veggies that were available to our hunter-gather ancestors. The diet also deters you from drinking alcohol. Fat loss, more energy, clearer skin, less bloating, fewer sugar cravings, and a drop in disease-provoking inflammation are among the advertised benefits of eating the caveman way.
