Fad diets being heavily publicized in the media are nothing new. Some of these diets err on the bizarre side, and others are simply impossible to maintain.
However, one diet plan that has captured a lot of positive attention lately is the Paleo Diet.
The Paleo Diet’s effectiveness seems to lie in the fact it is not a quick cleanse or two-week program promising dramatic results.

Many diseases are also claimed to be prevented by adhering to the Paleo Diet. So, what is this so-called Paleo lifestyle all about?
