Download This free Paleo Diet Guide :
The paleo diet is one of the most intriguing diets that have come out in
recent years. Its revelations may seem new, but the formulation is actually
based on the eating patterns of our most ancient hunter gatherer ancestors.
Also known as the Primal diet, Caveman diet, Stone Age diet, or Hunter-gatherer diet, the Paleo diet includes fresh vegetables & roots, tart fruits, nuts, wild fish, free-range poultry, grass-fed meats, olive and coconut oils. It excludes all processed and refined foods, sugars, sweet fruits, grains, beans, GMO foods, seed oils, and dairy products. The modern Paleo diet is part of a whole food lifestyle with exercise, and it has many interpretations.
The Paleo diet is compatible to many other alternative diets, such as Gluten-free/Celiac, Low-carb, and CrossFit diets. It is similar in many ways to the Zone and Atkins diet.
Recently, the Paleo diet has surged in popularity, perhaps as a reaction to refined food and the modern diseases that go along with it. We can look for inspiration to our ancestors, who were were physically strong, fit, and active. They had to walk many miles to gather food, migrate to distant areas, and outrun wild animals.
