The Paleolithic diet is inspired by what our ancestors ate before the agricultural age. Along with being low-carb, the foods included on Paleo diet lists are usually natural and organic. The point of eating Paleo is to give your body the nutrients it needs without the processed additives and extra calories of a contemporary diet.
