3 Reasons Why Eating like a Caveman is an Extinct Idea

It seems like every year a new “fad diet” pops up and takes over people’s lives and dinner plates. One of the recent ones that has become extremely popular is the “Paleo Diet.”

The idea behind his diet is that we should be eating like our ancestors did. One of the suggestions to accomplish this is to eat more meat and cut out grains from our diets.

However, this seemingly goes against the principles of sound nutrition. But is that necessarily a bad thing?

In this post, I will explore three reasons why I believe that the Paleo Diet isn’t necessarily all that accurate; and possibly not all that healthy.

Meat is Meat is Meat?

Modern food is a far cry from what cavemen actually ate. While science and advances have provided developed countries with plenty of food, they have also modified the food in the process.

If you talk to people who eat game meat (animals you hunt down and then eat) on a regular basis, you will often find a common remark: the meat is leaner.

The meat we eat that is raised, on the other hand, is not so lean. In fact, farmers often overfeed their animals, and even sometimes restrain their movements, in order for them to grow bigger.
