The theory of the Paleo Diet is based on various biological studies regarding the diet of early humans. Apparently, our bodies are a better fit for the ancient diet of the Paleolithic era which happened between 2.5 million years and 10,000 years ago. Then came the Neolithic era which introduced agriculture, which drastically changed our ancestors’ hunting-gatherer lifestyle and eating habits. Many of the diseases that plague our modern world—hypertension, diabetes, gastrointestinal and cardiovascular diseases—can in fact be attributed to modern agriculture-based diets. There’s too much white processed starch, too much sodium, too much refined sugar and processed oil, and not enough protein. We need to place priority on foods that our ancient ancestors consumed and avoid processed foods that didn’t exist before agriculture was created.
