Proponents of the Paleo diet suggest that our bodies are genetically programmed to thrive on a diet high in meats and fresh vegetables and fruits-foods that could be hunted and gathered during the Paleolithic era. Cutting out the modern processed foods and grains that have been cited as a cause of modern diseases like Type2 Diabetes and heart disease and returning to a caveman diet may help improve overall health and athletic performance.
