The Paleo diet is becoming increasingly popular for many reasons, but mainly because people can relate to it, understand the theory behind it, and see great results after trying it out. It has been shown to boost energy levels while reducing symptoms of indigestion, irritable bowel syndrome, and other ailments contributed to a carbohydrate or grain heavy diet.
The concept behind it is that we should eat as we would have done ages ago when we were hunters and gatherers.
Meat, fish, and eggs are high on the list of accepted foods, as well as fruits, vegetables, and nuts that would have been collected from our surroundings.
In those days there was no agriculture, and definitely no factories, so all grains and processed foods are out, including bread, pasta, rice, dairy products, etc. However, processed foods and grains are without a doubt some of the cheapest products in the supermarket, which leads Paleo-ers to thinking that they need to spend a small fortune to keep to the diet.
