7 Simple Reasons That Paleo Diet Transformation Is All Wrong

Ever since the paleolithic era, the humankind has evolved with leaps and bounds. Early men used to eat all kinds of things, from meat to even wild mushrooms!

And believe it or not, although we have advanced a lot in both age and behaviour, there still are some things that have stayed with us, and are totally wrong! Read on to see why!

1. Our diets

1. Our diets

Owing to habits like fishing and farming, our diets have changed seriously since the paleolithic age. And looks like our diets are just fine! We did make it this far in time, didn't we?

2. Bacteria in the intestines

2. Bacteria in the intestines

In the intestines of a modern man and you'll find billions of bacteria that help in digesting grains, potatoes and high-fiber foods. It only means that the cavemen could not enjoy all the foods that we do!

3. Misconception about health

3. Misconception about health

Some people consider Paleo food healthy. Well, it obviously is healthy, but not one that'll protect you from all the diseases in the world! So it does come down a matter of choice of diet, with neither diets possesing an extra edge when it comes to health.

4. Lifespan

Even lifespan is not something that gives paleo food an extra edge because it did not help our ancestors survive more than 20 years on average!

6. Extinction

The biggest problem with the idea of a Paleolithic diet is that there's no such thing as Paleolithic food. Most Paleolithic plants and animals don't exist anymore, remember? Like humans, plants and animals too have evolved and changed over time!

7. Too Far Back

7. Too Far Back

The obesity epidemic is relatively recent. So people often look to past diets for a cure. But the paleolithic diet goes too far back. Remember that this too could pose a threat in practice!
