Can living like a caveman prevent disease and make you lean and fit? Some doctors argue that one of the hottest wellness trends today – the paleo diet – is also one of the healthiest. The key to living primal is limiting carbs to load up on grass-fed meat and organic produce. If you're ready to go full steam, here are some rules for the paleo diet.
Since the advent of agriculture, we've slowly increased our grain consumption. Today, some of the cheapest and most readily available foods are made from inexpensive, subsidized grains such as corn and wheat. These foods, like cereal, bread, pasta, and pizza, are also largely devoid of nutrients. They drive up insulin, putting our bodies in fat-storing mode, and cause us to crave more of them by the use of chemical additives.
