The Paleo diet was first brought into the spotlight by Loren Cordain, PhD, one of the world’s leading experts on the Paleolithic diet, and author of the best-selling book “The Paleo Diet: Lose Weight and Get Healthy by Eating the Food You Were Designed to Eat.” Dr. Cordain’s extensive research focused on the evolutionary and anthropological basis for dietary health and the links between modern diets and disease.
Recently, the Paleo diet has surged in popularity. Also known as the primal diet, caveman diet, Stone Age diet, or hunter-gatherer diet, it consists of fresh vegetables, fruits, roots, nuts, wild fish, free-range poultry, and grass-fed meat. It excludes all grains, legumes, dairy products, refined sugars, and processed oils. The modern Paleo diet is a whole lifestyle of particular foods and exercise, and it has many interpretations.
