Do you want to lose weight? Do you wish to lead a healthy life? Are you one of those people who absolutely cannot count every morsel of food they eat or every calorie that touches their lips? Well, if you answered “yes” to any of the aforementioned questions, you have come to the right place!
The Paleo Diet is based on the premise that our Paleolithic ancestor was a lot healthier than the present day humans, without suffering from a lot of diseases such as diabetes, obesity or any kind of cardiovascular diseases. So, while following the Paleo Diet, you are encouraged to only consume the foods that were available to humans that lived in the Paleolithic era.
This diet calls for the consumption of vegetables, nuts, organ meats, fruits, roots and meats, while avoiding foods such as grains, legumes, salt, coffee, dairy products, sugar, processed oil and all kinds of alcohol.
You don’t just need to avoid heavily processed modern foods, but you also need to avoid everything that humans began consuming after the dawn of the Neolithic Revolution. It was during the Neolithic Revolution when humans gave up their gatherer and hunter lifestyle, in favor of a more settled agro based lifestyle.
