The Paleo aka Stone Age or caveman diet argues that evolution tends to develop animals that are best suited to the environment that they’re in, and that because our food environment has changed both hugely and rapidly in the last 10,000 years we’re not well suited to the foods that we’re eating and that this is causing health problems.

Paleo promises better health and performance if you select foods more similar to those eaten throughout our species’ existence, in the real world this means avoiding all grains, dairy and legumes, as well as processed foods and processed oils.
