Based on the diet of our ancestors (hunters and gatherers), the Paleo Diet includes foods that are found in nature without going through any type of process.
It is an easy diet to do because you can eat all those foods that our ancestors could hunt or collect such as fish, meat, seeds, nuts, green and regional leafy vegetables.
However, it is not allowed in the Paleo Diet to eat pasta, bread, cereals and sweets, although it has something in its favor because you should not count calories like our ancestors did not, who did not suffer from obesity, diabetes or heart disease.
There are studies that affirm that with the Paleo Diet it is possible to lose weight and even improve glucose tolerance, improving overall health.
But for this you must follow a meal plan based on foods such as meat, fish, seeds, herbs, healthy fats, fruits and vegetables, avoiding processed foods, bread, pasta, sugar and most dairy products, legumes and vegetable oils.
