Have you heard of the paleo diet? It’s a popular weight loss plan now and is also known as hunter gatherer diet or caveman diet plan but more than being a diet plan most people who are into paleo eating consider it as a lifestyle. The concept is to have a diet that runs on foods that our caveman ancestors used to eat. This is to prevent diseases and even obesity.
What are paleo foods?
Think of foods available during the Paleolithic or Stone age period. If the food exists during those times, then it is a paleo food.
Example of paleo foods are meat, fish, eggs, vegetables, fruits, nuts, seeds, herbs, spices, healthy fats, and oils.
Foods to avoid on the paleo diet are processed foods, refined sugar, soft drinks, grains, dairy products, legumes, artificial sweeteners, vegetable oils, margarine and trans fats.
