The Paleo diet goes back to the beginnings, when man still lived in and with nature. The name derives from the Palaeolithic, the Paleolithic. Scientists such as the American Loren Cordain dealt intensively with the diet and lifestyle of Stone Age people. They were looking for alternatives to the modern diet, which is often associated with civilization phenomena such as cardiovascular diseases, type 2 diabetes and weight problems.

Results of the research work show: The original diet of hunters and gatherers has many health benefits and can be easily reconciled with everyday life in the big city. The trick is to avoid processed foods and focus on fresh produce. In the process, cereal and dairy products are eliminated or significantly reduced.

Unlike the low-carb diet, Paleo is less about counting carbohydrates. Both forms of diet dispense with cereals and industrially processed sugar. While low carb also reduces fruits and vegetables, the paleo diet allows everything without restrictions on the amount of trees and soil. Low-carb recipes work with dairy products. The Stone Age diet dispenses with this. The focus here is on the naturalness of unprocessed foods.
