The paleo diet has become incredibly popular over the past few years, gaining a huge following for its emphasis on eating healthy, whole foods and avoiding processed and ‘unnatural’ products.
A simple way to explain the paleo diet or the ‘caveman‘ diet, is that it is based on the notion, that for optimal health and performance, we should be eating the way that cavemen would have eaten. Eating ‘paleo’ means only eating items that they would have had available, such as meat, fish, berries, nuts, leafy greens and regional vegetables.
Proponents of a Paleo based diet claim that:
“human metabolism has been unable to adapt fast enough to handle many of the foods that have become available since the advent of agriculture. Thus, modern humans are said to be maladapted to eating foods such as grain, legumes, and dairy, and in particular the high-calorie processed foods that are a staple of most modern diets.”
The reported benefits of a paleo diet are reduced allergies, a more stable blood sugar level, more stored fat being burned off, more energy throughout the day, better sleep, improved skin and teeth health and more efficient workouts.
