Paleo Diet

Paleo diet refers to sticking to a diet plan that primarily includes foods that were being eaten by our pre-historic ancestors who belonged to the Paleolithic age. It stresses on excluding processed, refined and modified foods from our diet and taking crops, eggs and meat grown from natural sources. This diet is said to help combat our new age lifestyle-based diseases.
