You may heard of the Paleo Diet, and are also unaware what the diet consists of.
They did not eat food that was processed, refined, cooked with toxic oils, or that contained sugar, unlike the majority of the foods that we eat today (The PaleoSecret).
There are a small number of cultures in the world today, who continue to live a paleolithic hunter-gatherer lifestyle.
Those who live in a modern society cultures, try to recreate elements of a paleolithic lifestyle, and do so in an attempt to improve or enhance their health, fitness and happiness by avoiding the common diseases that most of society faces today, which include obesity, cardiovascular disease, metabolic syndrome, allergies, depression, and chronic stress.
The paleo diet encourages eating generous amounts of saturated fats like coconut oil and butter or clarified butter.
The diet also promotes not using oils made from vegetables, or that are hydrogenated and partly-hydrogenated including, but not limited to, margarine, soybean oil, corn oil, peanut oil, canola oil, safflower oil and sunflower oil.
A paleo diet is neither vegetarian or vegan. Paleo eaters eat meat, unlike vegetarians, though they will eat dairy or eggs (depending on the person), and unlike vegans who eat no meat at all, including the by products of animals, such as dairy products, eggs, and even honey.
