The Paleo diet is a modern nutritional plan based on elementary foods that our ancestors ate 2.5 million years ago. This diet means that you have to eat only fruits, vegetables, meat, sea food, nuts, seeds, eggs and healthy fats. The Paleo diet allows you to use heat to cook your food.
During this diet you are not allowed to eat dairy products, cereals, processed food, sugar, legumes, processed oils, alcohol and anything that contains starch. The main idea of the Paleo diet is that a diet similar to the one people had in the Paleolithic Age is perfect if you want to lose weight and live a healthier life.
The Paleo diet brings many health benefits. Some of them are: increased energy levels, healthy skin, teeth and hair. This diet also helps you fight obesity, cardiovascular disease, autoimmune disease, diabetes and helps people with an irritable bowel syndrome.
