I am sure you must have heard of the newly in trend, Paleo Diet. Especially if you are one of those many people looking for diet plans for weight control, fat loss, healthy living and so on. However, ironically this new trend is in fact a very old practice. And here, by old, I mean around 12000 years back. This is when man had no clue even about agriculture. It was the time when men lived in caves. Known as the Paleolithic age, this is where the term ‘Paleo diet’ is derived from.

Now that we know where its origin lies, let us get to know more about this diet which is a promising way of better living. During the Paleolithic age, man lived on natural food. Thus his diet would include fruits, berries, nuts, some vegetables, animal mass and seafood. No grains, no dairy products. If you rethink over this, you would realize these are the main sources leading to most of the health ailments, weight problems in today’s era. So does it mean that man, at that time was fitter and healthier? Yes, that is a definite truth!
