Abstract :

The Paleo diet is a diet based on food groups that were eaten by stone age humans such as fruits, vegetables, nuts, eggs, meat, and seafood excluding dairy, grains, and processed foods. Around 2.5 million years ago, it was the dietary pattern of the majority of people, including foods that could be get by hunting and gathering. The modern paleo diet is a modified version of the true paleo diet with some variations in food groups. The Paleo diet is high in protein, polyunsaturated fats, fiber and low in carbohydrates. As human evolution stopped 10,000 years ago thus, human genetics is more adaptable to the paleo diet as compared to the highly processed modern diet. There may be a few limitations of this diet due to the exclusion of some food groups, but it is still observed to be beneficial for weight loss and other chronic diseases.
