An apple a day keeps the doctor away, but what does a protein packed diet with plenty servings of vegetables and fruits do? The Paleolithic diet lifestyle is one that is gaining popularity not only in the world of celebrities, fitness builders and bodybuilders, but also everyday people who are simply seeking to be healthier.
The name originates from the idea of the Paleolithic Age or Stone Age. The “paleo” lifestyle is also known as the “caveman diet” because those who follow the diet consume what a caveman would—animals and vegetables.
“(The paleo diet) is also a very clean diet. It is unprocessed, there is no preservatives in the food,” said April Murray, a registered dietician of OC Nutrition Coaching in Costa Mesa. “You will have a lot more energy and you will not have those negative side effects of eating processed foods.”
