A “Paleo” diet is a modern-day nutritional plan that relies on the evolutionary diets of our ancestors. It excludes processed foods and grains but includes vegetables, fruit, lean meats, and seafood.

The Paleo diet focuses on eating the way humans were meant to eat because it is based on what our bodies are biologically designed to do.

The emphasis on protein, healthy fats, and vegetables has led many people to adopt this lifestyle as one of the most effective ways to lose weight and improve health.

The paleo diet has been gaining popularity in recent years due to its effectiveness in helping people lose weight quickly without being hungry or feeling deprived.
