Paleo comes from the term Paleolithic which is the era of our Stone Age ancestors. Their diet consisted of foods prior to agriculture and animal husbandry – meats, fish, eggs, fruit, nuts, seeds and vegetables. The paleo diet avoids all grains, legumes/beans, dairy, potatoes, sugar and any processed foods. Many athletes follow the paleo diet to optimise their performance. Other people eating paleo simply wish to avoid the many diseases of civilisation and reap the health benefits of this lifestyle diet.
