The Paleo Diet
The Paleo Diet is based on a simple concept: humans are built to best live in nature.
Our DNA, and our resulting physiology shaped over thousands of years of hunting and gathering, adapting to what we ate, to the amount of sunlight we were exposed to, and to the ways we used our bodies to survive.
Evolution happens slowly.
While the world around us has changed dramatically in the last 200 years (since the industrial revolution), the human genome has barely changed at all. Some of our most basic bodily needs like eating and moving are still programmed like we’re living in the Paleolithic era.
What is the Paleo Diet?
The Paleo Diet is based on the idea that human bodies function best and feel best eating the foods and nutrients that we’re more adapted to, and that avoiding foods introduced to human consumption more recently helps us avoid inflammation, malabsorption and digestion problems.
While many people at first glance associate the paleo diet with eating a lot of meat, it’s actually much simpler and doesn’t entirely rely on protein, but instead a diverse and colorful array of natural foods that we’ve been eating for many, many years.

That’s why we created our Paleo Diet app, Mammoth Hunters.

Benefits of the Paleo Diet
NATURAL AND CONSISTENT ENERGY ALL DAY LONG
Have you ever felt shattered after a meal?
Or a mid-morning drop in energy?
Eating right helps you avoid these swings in energy levels. Choosing foods that help you avoid ups and downs and maintain healthy blood sugar is the key.
UNLEASH THE POWER OF YOUR BODY
Eat quality protein to feed your muscles, and combine it with exercise—you’ll be feeling better soon and will see changes in your body’s shape.
Building muscle improves your capacity to burn fat, helping you to stay in shape even when you splurge on meals. It boosts your immune system and helps you produce anti-stress hormones.
LESS INFLAMMATION AND ALLERGIES
Following our nutrition plan, you’ll eat more whole foods that help reduce or eliminate inflammation. You’ll also eat more antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals which help your body work well and recover fast.
Eating Paleo helps you avoid anti-nutrients (toxins in some foods), so you’ll reduce the hyperactivity of your immune and digestive systems, and experience a reduction in allergies and autoimmune responses.
Eating enough nutrients will support metabolism and the production of sleep neurotransmitters like serotonin and melatonin.
To boot, avoiding toxins (like alcohol) will allow your body to rest at night by not needing to repair your digestive system or eliminate toxic items from the body. This means you’ll have more restful sleep and more recovery.
