Let’s dive in and see if this eating plan is something you would enjoy.

What is the Paleo Diet?

To put it basically, a paleo diet is an eating plan similar to the diet of early humans in the Stone Age. This diet consists of things like meat, nuts, fruits, vegetables, almost anything you can find in nature. Paleo proponents claim that because of the “modern way of farming,” and adding things such as grains and other additives to our food, we’ve caused ourselves to have so many diet-related diseases today. They claim that our bodies didn't have enough time to adjust the new way of eating.

How to know if paleo is right for you

As always, before going on a new diet you should consult your doctor to make sure that the diet is right for you. The biggest cons with the paleo diet are that this diet is not personalized, so if you need special accommodations due to certain health risks, the diet doesn't have any room for that. Also, paleo can minimize variation in your food which can get tiring. Limited choices also cut out beneficial food groups, something to be careful about if you have no real need to give up entire food groups like carbs. Also, if you suffer from an eating disorder, a fad or popular diet may not be for you. Eating disorders require medical intervention and therapy work.
