With all the medical concerns our modern society has, it’s no wonder that so many people are looking for ways to lead a healthier life. Its no secret that diet plays an important role in this. The Paleolithic (paleo for short) diet is an excellent example of a lifestyle change that people make in an attempt to become healthier. As health awareness increases, so does the popularity of this diet. Some of the reasons people have for trying this diet include: weight loss, improving athletic performance, building lean muscle mass, combating or preventing illness, improving mental health, and simply to be healthy and feel good. Regardless of the reason people chose for doing the paleo diet, it is such a great choice because it is is not a fad diet designed by a diet doctor or nutritionist, it is designed by nature and involves eating onlythe foods that nature intended for humans to consume.
