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.
Feed your gut.
Before refrigeration, foods were preserved by fermentation, but today, we rarely eat fermented foods – and that's not a good thing. Fermented foods contain probiotics, healthy gut bacteria that increase digestion, nutrient delivery, and immune health. Scientists believe probiotics in fermented foods like sauerkraut were crucial to gut health thousands of years go.
