THE SKINNY ON THE PALEO "DIET"
Paleo stands for the time period prior to the agricultural revolution when humans ate only what they could forage for or kill with their bare hands or primitive tools. Today, there are few groups left that survive in what we consider a primitive manner. Eating Paleo was introduced over a decade ago and this "diet" has been spreading throughout the world, but how beneficial is it? Read on to learn how adopting the Paleo way of eating has helped Spinning Master Instructor Sabrina Fairchild change her life for the better.
