The paleo diet emphasises whole, unprocessed foods, including vegetables, fruits, nuts, seeds, and meats.
This diet excludes grains, legumes, dairy products, and processed foods, or simply put foods that became more common post farming and processing came into being.
Nutritionists believe that the effect of the paleo diet on heart disease risk depends on how you choose to follow it.
We know that hunter-gatherer ancestors relied on a whole food-based diet and led physically active lives, they presumably had much lower rates of lifestyle diseases including heart disease.
Today, you might follow the paleo diet to manage weight loss, blood pressure, cholesterol and triglycerides.
The paleo diet may not be suitable for everyone, and it is important to consider your individual needs and preferences when deciding on a diet plan.
We recommend that you eat a healthy diet, exercise regularly and monitor your heart health to maintain your overall health.
