A number of eating fads have gained popularity in recent years, but one diet that has stuck it out through thick and thin is that of the Paleo regime. Whether consumers agree or disagree with this caveman style of eating, it’s one diet that most people have at least heard of, although not one all sufficiently understand. Many associate the Paleo diet with Crossfit — the strength and conditioning program founded by former gymnast Greg Glassman in the 1970’s — however, Crossfitters and non-Crossfitters alike enlist this program to achieve their desired physical results, and they have significant support backing their logic.

Health experts harbor different sentiments on the popular dietary fad that is Paleo, with some citing the benefits of eating like the cavemen while others arguing for its unhealthiness, but arguably one of the biggest pros of the diet is the extensive information supporting the lifestyle choice, along with explanations how to go through with it.

Here’s the who, what, when, where, why, and how of the Paleo diet so you can better understand the logic behind this eating phenomenon. Paleo certainly doesn’t have to be an all-or-nothing thing, unless you have a Crossfit coach breathing down your neck of course, but advocates of the plan swear that the desired results can only be achieved if one commits to the approach wholeheartedly. See what you think.
