Does the Paleo Diet work? Why do we study history? Well, the reason we need to pay attention to history, so it does not repeat itself. When it comes to the Paleo Diet that might be the exception to the rule. Why? Because the Paleo Diet came from the Paleolithic era which was 10,000 to 2.5 million years ago. Other names for the Paleo Diet are the caveman diet, stone age diet or hunter gatherers diet. This is how our ancestors use to eat back in the day.

And that diet consisted of fish such as salmon, tuna, fish that is high in Omega 3 fatty acids, fruits, vegetables, lean meats, seeds, oils such as olive oil or walnut oil, nuts. And this was food that was found by our ancestors during hunting and yes, they hunted for their food.

The foods you would avoid on a Paleo Diet are:

  • Grains- such as wheats, oats, and barley
  • Legumes
  • Dairy Products
  • Refined Sugar
  • Salt
  • Potatoes
  • Highly Processed Foods

The Paleo Diet is rich in vegetables and fruits which are important vitamins minerals you need in your diet. The biggest difference between the Paleo diet and other diets is the absence of whole grains and legumes. And that is important because it possesses good a source of fiber which is needed daily. Another thing that is vacant in the Paleo Diet is dairy products which provides a reliable source of calcium and protein.

    Some of trials have shown that the health benefits of the Paleo Diet are:

  • Improved glucose tolerance
  • Improved blood Pressure
  • Lower triglycerides
  • Better appetite management
  • Improved weight-Loss

The purpose of the Paleo Diet is to return to the way humans ate thousands and millions of years ago before the evolution of farming came into society. Farming changed how people ate and it introduced foods we did not eat before such as dairy grains and legumes. The Paleo diets’ reasoning is that the human body is genetically mismatched to the modern diet that came about from the evolution of farming practices.

“The biggest difference between the Paleo diet and other diets is the absence of whole grains and legumes.”
