THE PALEO DIET (aka Hunter-Gatherer Diet; Caveman Diet)

Dubbed as the oldest known diet to man, Paleo attempts to follow what our ancestors ate 2.5 million years ago. Followers of this plan claim our bodies are ill-equipped to digest grains, dairy, beans, refined sugars, and food additives, which were introduced a mere 10,000 years ago during the agricultural revolution.
