The Paleo diet, also well known as the Caveman or Stone Age diet, has gained revolutionary popularity among physicians, health experts and the general public, since it joined the scene in 2002.
Dr. Loren Cordain is the author of the book, “The Paleo Diet,” that initiated the movement that has earned a cult-like following. Cordain proclaims the diet to be the healthiest in the world, but his claims are met with opposition from many leading experts.
