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.
Eat nutrient-dense foods.
The most nutrient-dense foods – and one of the primary components of a paleo diet – are vegetables. Try eating more of the healthiest: kale, seaweed, spinach, and arugula. The second most nutrient-dense food is meat from wild or grass-fed animals, like fish, cattle, buffalo, and boar. Animal meat is high in B vitamins, omega-3s, amino acids, and other nutrients essential to good health.
