Paleo Diet

The Palaeolithic (paleo) diet is a diet that typically involves avoiding dairy products, legumes, grains and some starchy vegetables. The diet composition tends to be high in fat, particularly saturated fat from animal sources. The diet is supposedly based on the diets of Palaeolithic humans typically ate, however such a claim does not hold up to scientific scrutiny. There is currently no long-term data showing the safety of following a Paleo diet long-term.
