Is the Caveman Diet the Missing Link?


The time it takes to plan meals, shop for the correct foods and cook in the right way, and the money it'll take to exist on a diet of organic, grass-fed meat and fresh Alaskan salmon, prevents problems for many health-conscious followers.

Many people find it hard to stick to the caveman diet. Opponents of the diet say it's unrealistic to ape the behavior of cavemen in today's world, and that one of the reasons cavemen were apparently so healthy and lean is due to the activity they had to undertake to find their dinner.

Let's face it, unless we live in the wilderness we're not likely to need to, or even be able to, catch all our own food, and all the time in the gym doesn't equal the calories a caveman burned simply trying to stay alive. So is the caveman diet worth it? Many studies point to the benefits of certain elements of the caveman or primal diet such as increased levels of antioxidants, omega-3s, vitamins and minerals. All these benefit your health in different ways but they can also be found without sticking to such a rigid diet.

Ultimately, it's up to you if you want to eat like a caveman to lose weight or gain health benefits, but there's no conclusive evidence that we can thrive today by eating like our ancient ancestors.
