These are in evolutionary terms still un-natural foods for us. If you are training hard or competing then you need the optimal diet for performance and recovery. The Paleo diet for athletes is a twist on the basic paleo diet, so that you get everything you need to smash your Read more

Paleolithic Diet Food Lists

 

The heart of the Paleo diet is based around eating foods that existed 10,000 years ago before the birth of intensive agriculture.

Paleo Diet Tips

One major difference between our modern diet and the diet of our ancestors is that where we think nothing of combining proteins and carbohydrates  together into one meal, cavemen used to eat different foods at different times.

The big advantage that this gave them is that they were able to digest their food much more Read more

Losing Weight with the Paleo Diet

During the past 25 years, the obesity rates in the western world have climbed increasingly higher and yet we are the same humans that we were a quarter of a century ago. Evolution hasn’t changed us, and in the majority of instances, we haven’t all taken sedentary jobs either.

Food Intolerance and the Paleo Diet

During the past few thousand years, intensive farming has created cheap food in abundance to allow us to feed an ever growing population. Many of these foods are however not natural to our diet, and as such we find them difficult to digest.

These include wheat, grains and dairy to name a few, others are legumes, and even potatoes which today we eat in large volumes compared to the diets of our ancestors. Read more
