The truth about the Paleo diet

The truth about the Paleo diet

CHICAGO — A new study has shed some light on the validity of the Paleo diet.

The diet, inspired by our cavemen ancestors, became very popular a few years ago. The idea was to simplify how you eat and avoid processed foods, dairy, sugar, alcohol, and focus on meat.

Anyway, a new study has shattered this idea that cavemen were so strong because they ate meat all day. Analysis of bones and teeth found in a cave in Morocco that was inhabited about 15,000 years ago found that these hunter-gatherers ate lots of plants.

In fact, the bulk of their diet was acorns, pine nuts and beans! The author of the study concluded that meat was not the main source of protein in their diet, it was plants.
