The paleo diet is designed to resemble what human hunter-gatherer ancestors ate thousands of years ago. The paleo diet consists of real, whole foods, with the exception of some natural bottled or packaged sauces, condiments, and ingredients, with that you eliminate a whole range of preservatives, hidden sugars, sodium, additives, coloring, and artificial flavoring. As a result you eliminate unnecessary toxins and consume more nutrients.
The aim of a paleo diet is to return to a way of eating that more matches what our early ancestors ate. The diet’s reasoning for this is that the human body is genetically mismatched to the modern diet that emerged with farming practices, an idea known as the discordance hypothesis.
Farming changed the way humans ate; it established dairy, grains, and legumes as additional staples in our diet. This relatively late and rapid change in diet, according to the hypothesis, outpaced the body’s ability to adapt, which is believed to be a contributing factor to the prevalence of obesity, diabetes, and heart disease.
