Paleo diet, a favorite diet of athletes, television stars and ordinary people who want to lose weight, have a beautiful figure and excellent health. This diet differs from others in that it does not need to monitor what you eat, in what quantity or calculate the calorie content of the food. The main condition of the diet – there are those products that people could afford in the Stone Age. After all, the name of the diet, in fact, translates as “the diet of the Stone Age.” 70% of the diet of modern man are foods that were not available to our ancestors. They ate what they could get on a hunt or what mother nature gave them: meat, fish, eggs, vegetables, fruits, and nuts. It is these products that make up the paleo diet. An interesting fact: in the 70s, scientists compared the skeleton of a person from the Stone Age and a representative of a later time. It turned out that primitive hunters were distinguished by stronger bones, the absence of caries, arthritis, anemia, than their more developed descendants.
