Paleo is the term used to designate the diet of the Paleolithic era or what we ate before we started farming and domesticating animals. It’s not something new but a way of eating that a lot of people are returning to for benefits of increased performance, optimizing how you look and feel and many health benefits. What is more is that it is a WAY OF LIFE not a “diet”. It is how you eat and a how you workout, natural & functional. The Paleo diet is simple: Meats, fish, veggies, nuts & seeds and some fruit. The main focus is on quality and unprocessed foods. A natural fuel choice for CrossFitters.
