    The Paleo meal and diet plan is based from the paleolithic diet, or caveman diet. This diet takes us back to the caveman days, when meals were simple, meat, vegetables, fruits, gathered or hunted. This kind of diet was popularized during the seventies by a well-known gastroenterologist named Walter L. Voegtlin, that suggested that many of the problems people faced at that time with the stomach, or poor health in general was because of the processed foods we were eating. Our diets hadn’t really changed since the caveman days, and all we needed was these basic foods to have a healthy lifestyle.
