What is the Paleo Diet?
The Paleo diet (abbreviation for Paleolithic diet) is a diet which is inspired by the manner in which our ancestors ate. More specifically, it is inspired by our ancestors from the Paleolithic age (approximately 2,600,000 to 10,000 years ago).
Scientific research shows that the human genome has only evolved 0.01% in the most recent 10,000 years.
Our eating habits have however changed multiple times, now including many products that our 99.99% still Paleolithic genetic build-up was never supposed to eat! The basic assumption of the Paleo diet is that the by eating the foods that our body is supposed to eat, healthyness and quality of life increases.
