In our latest podcast we take a closer look at the origins of one of the most popular diets of the moment – the paleo diet.
The basic idea behind the so called ‘caveman’ diet is to eat what Paleolithic humans ate between 2.5 million and 10,000 years ago . According to Paleo diet advocates, this is supposed to mean staying away from things like grains, legumes and certain vegetables.
