Paleo Diet is essentially a low carb diet including lots of quality fat and protein. The theory is that humans do not actually need dietary carbohydrates. Any carbohydrate the body may require can be synthesized from fat and protein. Rather than carbs for energy, experts claim that our bodies prefer ketones: energy producing by-products from fat metabolism.
For the past 2.6 million years we have been hunter gatherers. Our bodies have not yet adapted to process grains and sugar (they likely never will). The agricultural revolution began just 10,000 years ago (perhaps as few as 2,000 in Europe). It takes anywhere from 40,000 to 100,000 years for human DNA to adapt to an environmental influence. Therefore, our bodies would seem better equipped to work with the building blocks of our pre-agricultural ancestors.
