What is Paleo Diet?

Paleo, short for paleolithic, is an aggregate term describing a collection of dietary and fitness guidelines that are developed based on theories of human evolution. It covers names like Caveman Diet, Stone Age Diet, Evolutionary Fitness, Primal Blueprint, and Ancestral Health. A Paleo diet, being relatively low in carbohydrates, is in some regards similar to the Atkins Diet or the South Beach Diet.

Different people have developed somewhat different versions of Paleo over time. Some of the better known specific regimes include The Primal Blueprint by Mark Sisson, Protein Power by Michael and Mary Dan Eades, and The Paleo Diet by Loren Cordain.
