12,000 years ago, our Paleolithic ancestors lived very different lives than we do today. Instead of a diet based on processed grains & sugar, they thrived on a diet of fruits, vegetables, roots, seeds, nuts and wild game. Instead of driving to a job where they sat for hours basking in the glow of a computer screen, they spent their working day hunting game, gathering produce and being physically active. Instead of playing video games, they occupied their minds with plans of survival in a world untamed by technology. In the past few years, researchers have been investigating the health benefits of a Paleo style diet on 21 st century humans. And their results have been amazing.

Some refuse to cook their food. Others abstain from food for days on end in order to simulate the occasional food shortages faced by our Paleo ancestors. Some even donate blood based on the belief that their Paleo cousins would have And these are just some of the reasons why it's unlikely that the Paleo Diet/Lifestyle will ever become a mainstream phenomenon. And that's too bad. If only we could take the good parts of the Paleo lifestyle and ignore the slightly less good parts. If only someone could take that information and organize it using 21 st century technology. Computers are so much more efficient than smoke signals. If only someone would come along and write a Paleo Diet for 21 st Century Humans . Douglas Robb is a personal trainer and fitness blogger.
