If you grew up watching the Flintstones then you have a pretty good idea what the Paleo diet is all about. No, you don’t have to wear fur or go out and kill a bison, but you do need to eat fresh food; nothing processed or artificial. Basically, any foods that cavemen hunted, gathered and ate are on the menu.
The thought is that eating natural foods is healthier for you and can help you lose and maintain your weight; oh, and you don’t need to count calories or focus on portions. If you already live the Paleo lifestyle or want to then read my list of 20 Yummy and Healthy Paleo diet recipes.
