The overarching concept of the Paleo diet is to follow what our paleolithic ancestors, the 'cavemen', would have eaten over 100,000 years ago - during the ice age.
Paleo practitioners may attribute inflammation to sugary, starchy processed foods - and so they eliminate them from their daily diet. Emphasis instead is placed on mostly whole food sources of lean protein, fruits and vegetables, low-glycemic carbs, and healthy fats.
At Factor 75, we have our own Nutritional
