Paleo Diet

What is the Paleo Diet?

The Paleolithic diet, commonly referred to as the Paleo diet or the “caveman diet,” is a fad diet that includes eggs, fish, fruits, meat, nuts, seeds, and vegetables, and excludes dairy, grains, legumes, oils, refined sugars, and salt. Paleo-friendly foods include foods that could have been obtained by hunting and gathering during the Paleolithic era, which dates back roughly 2.5 million years ago to 10,000 B.C.

What are the benefits of the Paleo Diet?

The purpose of the Paleo Diet is to eliminate ultra-processed foods that are driving common modern chronic conditions and diseases and to eat more like early humans did.
