Should we “Mirror” the Caveman?

Check out this article we found written by Crissy Van Meter from LiveStron.com where she tells us about the diet, pros and cons that many are following…. (This diet consists of “mirroring” the caveman).

Is the Paleo Diet Worth It?

The Paleo diet is a diet that is supposed to mirror what cavemen used to eat: red meat, fish, fruits and vegetables. People who follow the Paleo diet claim that eating like our ancestors from 10,000 years ago can help cure obesity, acne and low libido. But a new book out by Marlene Zuk Ph.D., claims that Paleo might not be the best way to go.

According to Zuk, we actually don’t know what cave people were eating.  She asks why we’d choose a diet that was suited for someone with an 18-year life span. Zuk claims that Paleo followers believe that we were better off before modern agriculture; however, she says that advances in human evolution have been mostly positive. Bottom line? Going Paleo can be a great motivator to remove unhealthy, highly-processed foods from your diet, but it is not be the only way to eat healthy.
