What is Paleo Diet?


A paleo diet is a dietary plan based on foods similar to what might have been eaten during the Paleolithic era.

A paleo diet typically includes lean meats, fish, fruits, vegetables, nuts and seeds — foods that in the past could be obtained by hunting and gathering. A paleo diet limits foods that became common when farming emerged. These foods include dairy products, legumes and grains.

Paleo diet is linked to lower risks of diabetes, cancer, and heart disease due to the consumption of lean meats and plant foods along with a high level of physical activity.
