What Is the Paleo Diet & How Will It Help Me Lose Weight and Get Healthier?

The world-famous Paleo Diet is grounded in scientific research. In the late 20th century, scientists shed new light on the lifestyle and eating habits of our ancient hunter-gatherer ancestors during the Stone Age. Known more formally as the Paleolithic era, it was the first known period of human culture and began about 2.5 to 2-million years ago when early man began to make tools out of stone and natural fibers. The era ended around 10,000 years ago with the invention of agriculture.

What is the Paleo Diet?
It was an exciting era in human development. Our ancestors became skilled hunters and added lots of essential protein to their diets from animals and fish. Eating more protein allowed their brains to grow and made them more human.

Compared to our modern diet of highly processed foods with little nutritional value, our Paleolithic ancestors thrived on a varied diet of nutritious whole foods—meats, fish, eggs, leafy greens, regional veggies, nuts, seeds, and healthy fats.

Researchers looked at our Paleo ancestors’ natural, simpler diets and saw a smart way to help people lose weight and rediscover health and youthful vitality.

  • Why Paleo Is Fundamentally Good for Us

    We are designed to eat Paleo from a pure evolutionary standpoint. We ate Paleo for over 2-million years. When we invented agriculture and started growing grains and starchy vegetables, our diets changed and our bodies have had trouble adjusting ever since. Our response has been major spikes in the most serious, life-threatening diseases. The dramatic effects of the Paleo Diet on health and wellness are hard to dispute as the Paleo Movement shows no sign of slowing down.


    The Paleo Diet returns our bodies to a familiar, healthier style of eating, and that’s why we thrive on the program.
