Paleo 101: So What is the Paleo Diet, Anyway?



Paleo. Primal. Caveman. Hunter-Gatherer. Depending on whom you ask, these terms provoke dismissal, confusion, anger, or cult-like loyalty. They all boil down to the same general idea: that we should eat like spear-wielding cavemen…

By now you have likely gathered that I am a advocate for an approach to nutrition that is biologically appropriate for the human body. I encourage my clients to experiment with the Paleo approach to eating and lifestyle, and I am active in the Paleo and primal communities.

Can Paleo help you build muscle and lose fat? Is the Caveman diet all a bunch of bunk? Will you grow a gigantic forehead if you eat too much meat?

In today’s podcast, I’ll be discussing what exactly Paleo means today and where the movement is going in the future.
