Some of the strongest, healthiest, and most athletic humans lived in a time before modern technology. From nutritionists to cross-fitters, since the 1970s, some health conscious present day humans have found themselves looking to the past (like 10,000 years in the past) for dietary inspiration.

The idea behind the paleolithic diet is simple. Sometimes called the caveman diet, the paleo diet is all about consuming foods that occur naturally, just as the cavemen did. That means nothing manufactured. Gluten free. No excess sugars, fats or sodium. Just fruits, vegetables, nuts and roots, as well as protein from meats, eggs and shellfish. Typically, dairy and grains can supplement the diet, especially if they are beneficial to workouts and strength training. And unlike raw food diets, cooking food is within bounds of the paleo diet.
