Our nutritious siblings over at Grub Street broke down the history and actual relevance of the Paleo diet, focusing on the growing "cavewoman tribe" addicted to living like "hunter-gatherers" alongside the increasing number of studies that debunk the diet. Sample affirmations of the plan include: "I know how sick I was, and I know that the Paleo diet has kept me out of the hospital and let me enjoy my son"; "You're not hungry all the time like you are on most diets ... You look at the Paleo community and no one's stick-thin. Everyone looks happy, fit, and healthy"; and "For the first time, you no longer feel like you have to deprive yourself. I don't have to eat low-fat, low-carb food, pound the treadmill for an hour a day, and have anxiety and depression." But does living like cavewomen actually help our bodies scientifically? Or has it turned into a marketing tool? Click here to read Grub's thorough take.
