What is the Paleo Diet?

ANSWER

The Paleo Diet is based on what early humans may have eaten in the Paleolithic era. That's more than 2 million years before modern farming began. In the Stone Age, people ate only what they could hunt or gather. Farming changed that. Once it started nearly10,000 years ago, dairy, grains, and beans became staples in the diet.
