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.
Yet, according to Dr Ceren Kabukcu, an archaeology fellow at the Department of Archaeology, Classics and Egyptology, the Paleo Diet doesn’t have a much in common with what humans actually ate during the Paleolithic Era.
