Everybody’s talking about it – but is this the diet for you?
Learn what following the Paleo Diet entails.
Although the paleo diet has never appealed to me (I enjoy dairy too much), it has become all the rage among many health conscious folks. Especially popular amongst those that are involved in Cross Fit training, the paleo diet emulates the diet of cavemen. What exactly does this mean, you ask? Well, the Paleo Diet, as defined by thepaleodiet.com, is “based upon eating wholesome, contemporary foods from the food groups our hunter-gatherer ancestors would have thrived on during the Paleolithic era, the time period from about 2.6 million years ago to the beginning of the agricultural revolution, about 10,000 years ago.”
So, what’s on the Paleo Menu?
- Fresh Meat, such as beef, pork or poultry
- Fish and other seafood
- Fresh Fruit

- Oils, such as olive oil, coconut oil or flaxseed oil
What’s excluded from the menu?
