The Paleo Diet according to Carlos Pérez
The Paleolithic was the longest period in human history, it lasted two and a half million years, that is, it covered 99% of human history. Throughout this period our ancestors fed on whatthey gathered or hunted. They did not know agriculture and therefore their diet was based on fruits, roots, tubers or nuts that they collected. Hunting was unimportant at the beginning of the Palaeolithic period, whereby gathering and carting predominated.ñeo. As the human being progresses physically and culturally, hunting was gaining importance. They consumed very little fish because in the stone age there were still no good tools for fishing. In short, a diet conditioned byr the skill of our ancestors and by an unfavorable climate.

Only 500 generations ago (and the two and a half millionyears before this) all human beings ate that way, "explains Carlos."
