What is the Wahls protocol?

ANSWER

The Wahls protocol, or Wahls diet, is a version of the Paleolithic (Paleo) diet. This way of eating is based on the idea that humans should eat more like our ancient ancestors and avoid the foods we started eating in the past several hundred years, like wheat and processed foods.
