The Paleo or Paleolithic also known, as the "Caveman" diet is a regimen that follows the dietary principles of our ancient ancestors before the agricultural revolution began some 10,000 years ago. It certainly can get confusing when doing research about the Paleo diet, as there are so many different variations on this type of eating.
Probably the way to find out the best way to go about this type of eating is to find out which is going to be the most suitable for your specific type of lifestyle that you have. But it can be summed up in a few short sentences if you want the basics of what this type of eating is all about.
You need to stick to wild or organic meats, eggs, fruits, veggies, nuts and seeds and that's it. It means no dairy, no grains, no starches, no salt and definitely no processed foods.
Only eat things that could be hunted or gathered, and never eat anything that comes out of a bag, box or package.
For someone who is lactose intolerant this type of eating is certainly attractive when doing exercise on a regular basis.
However if you have been eating grains, dairy products and drinking milk all your life the switch to the Paleo diet can be something very tough to stick to the first few weeks, but after that it gets easier and you will lose your carvings for milk, cheese, breads, etc.
The Paleo diet may in fact be the best meal plan ever for bodybuilding, fitness and health.
The benefits are obvious when it comes to losing fat and putting on lean good quality muscle.
