The Paleo diet has been highly advocated since the 1990s due to more and more nutritionists, doctors, and scientists attesting to the fact that it actually works. There have been many books published that promote the Paleo diet and lifestyle. There are many great websites (like this one!) that strive to educate and inform people about the benefits and any risks of the Paleo diet. In other words, information about the Paleo diet is everywhere, and it’s not difficult to find.
Celebrities and famous people are now swearing by the Paleo diet as their way of keeping their weight down and their energy level up. Actors, sports figures, and other celebrities are embracing the caveman way of life! They eat lots of plants, meat, fruit, and seeds and avoid most processed foods. It may sound easy, but when you’re a celebrity you can have all of your Paleo meals cooked for you. For the rest of us, it is still very feasible to live a Paleo lifestyle with a little planning and effort.
