Last year Paleo diet increased in popularity. This style of food is also called a caveman’s diet.
This food was typical for the ancient people of the Paleolithic era. Scientists have found that people at that time were healthier than today. They did not have excess weight, diabetes, or hypertension.
Paleo diet is a controversial topic that has its supporters and opponents.
Opponents say that ancient people seemed healthier simply because their life was shorter. They died early, without having to live up to such problems. Besides, they were physically active, and this style of nutrition could not hurt them. They believe that a modern person cannot benefit from an increased intake of protein, giving up cereals and dairy products.
