Paleo Diet Guide
The Paleo diet is simple: eat only foods that were available to our hunter and gatherer ancestors thousands of years ago during the Paleolithic Age. This means that things like processed foods, refined grains and cereals are off the table. Instead, fill your plate with fruits, vegetables, meats, nuts, and seeds.
The idea is that Paleo consists of only foods that our bodies were originally designed to eat. Today, many of the heavily processed modern foods contribute to chronic disease and health problems. Proponents of Paleo advocate that it can reduce inflammation and enhance weight loss.
