The Paleo diet (or Paleolithic diet) is a nutritional plan based the things that our ancestors (aka caveman) ate from around 2.5 million years ago until just about 10,000 years ago.

The Paleo diet primarily involves eating lean meats, vegitables, buts, seeds, and some fruits in order to try and fight agains the diet-related diseases that come along with the modern American Diet.
