Many disciplines “…indicate it is our modern diet, full of refined foods, trans fats and sugar, that is at the root of degenerative diseases such as obesity, cancer, diabetes, heart disease, Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, depression and infertility.” –Robb Wolf
Our goal therefore should be to maximize the quality of what we eat to help prevent these chronic and deadly diseases. One of the ways to do so, according to its advocates, is the Paleo diet.
While there are many pros and cons of the Paleo diet, there’s no ignoring that it’s a big trend right now. The Paleo diet bases its foundation on the way cavemen ate way back when- lots of vegetables, high quality meat, eggs, fruit, and nuts. You may be surprised at some of the foods banned on the Paleo Diet, as they’re often at the top of the “to-eat” list on many other diets.
