What is a Paleo Diet, anyway?
Also known as “Paleolithic diet”, “hunter- gatherer diet” or “Caveman diet”, this is actually best described in terms of a “lifestyle” rather than a “diet”. In essence, Paleo can be described along the lines of:
“If it was good for your ancestors, it’s good for you”.
This kind of eating is sometimes referred to as “veganism for atheles” (which is a misconception, since unlike veganism, Paleo promotes eating meat). This is probably because Paleo is rising in popularity among athletes, and because it promotes some concepts that strike some people as a bit extreme.
Truth of the matter is that more and more people are getting into the Paleo lifestyle, and most of them actually get great results from it: including a boost in physical health, increase in stamina and sex drive, and increased sense of harmony and emotional well-being.
If you’re just getting started with your Paleo lifestyle, or even if you’re just curious about it, you should know there are foods you should favor, and foods you absolutely should avoid. Let’s go over the basics…
