Paleo Diet

During the Paleolithic man period, people were hunters and gathers. The concept of farming had not been developed yet. As such, people hunted in the forests for meat while also gathering nuts, fruits and roots. The Paleolithic man was viewed as being stronger, taller and muscular compared to the present day man. Health experts argue that the change in diet as man developed due to agriculture and industrialization led to the consumption of processed food instead of the original caveman diet. As a result, the present man is often easily afflicted with ailments in addition to being weak. This can be attributed to the fact that the human body did not adapt fully to digesting the foods and grains we currently eat.

The diet is seen as the answer to the weight problem befalling the United States of America. Today, approximately 60% of the global population is overweight while 33% are viewed as being obese. Further, the change in diet has led to a large number of people globally suffering from diseases such as diabetes and cancer. It is vital to note that these statistics are continuing to get worse day by day. This is a clear indication that the present day diet is wrong and harmful to people. Thus, there is a need to revert back to the paleo (caveman) diet.

The diet excludes many products that make up today’s sugar such as salt, dairy products, processed foods grains, vegetable oils and sugar. The exclusion of these three products from an individual’s diet has a significant impact in reducing the probability of contracting lifestyle diseases.

The paleo diet is made up of fruits, vegetables, lean meats nuts, seeds and roots, seafood and healthy fats. Healthy fats can be obtained from seeds, nuts, avocado, and fish oil.
