Paleo Diet - What is it in GENERAL ?

In this post, I am just going to give an outline of Paleo Diet. It is just an outline. I will give further link for those who are really more interested to follow the diet. There are multiple versions of paleo diet followed all over the world. They have different versions, depending on the origin. In my next post, I will outline the famous Indian version of paleo diet - LCHF. LCHF is becoming very popular nowadays. I will give link for the groups, which discuss more on LCHF. C'mon let us see what is PALEO in general.

PALEO refers to the diet style followed by new stone age men. There are some groups existing int he society, who design, practise and follow PALEO diet. This is not developed by doctors or dietitians. But nowadays many doctors and dietitians have started advising this diet to their patients. Some doctors are redirecting the patients to some paleo groups to get more details. These groups never collect money or charge any fees for suggesting the diet. So if somebody comes to you in the name of paleo and ask for charge, never fall into it.

If you are from Indian Origin, you need to follow LCHF type of diet. I have explained about the diet in this section. READ MY POST ABOUT LCHF PALEO DIET.

For others I will give a list of websites that would help you to read a lot about PALEO DIET, PALEO RECIPES and USES of PALEO DIET
