13. The Paleo Diet

The paleo diet, or Paleolithic, is dubbed the caveman diet because, if a caveman didn’t eat it, neither can you. On the menu are foods that you can hunt, fish or gather – grass-fed meat, fish, nuts and veggies. Out are foods which we consume thanks to modern agriculture – cereal grains, potatoes, dairy and (surprise surprise) all processed foods.

Typical meal: Grilled lamb skewers with salad

What the diet advocate says: According to Robb Wolf, author of The Paleo Solution, Paleo is ‘the only nutritional approach that works with your genetics to help you stay lean, strong and energetic.’

What the expert says: ‘Paleo does promote the consumption of fresh ingredients over salty, processed meats. It also advocates a high consumption of fruit and vegetables, which is no bad thing. Research published in the journal Nature suggests that following this kind of diet can improve blood pressure, insulin resistance and cholesterol levels. That said, it is incredibly restrictive, and cutting out dairy, cereal foods and starchy carbohydrates will likely leave you low on fibre, calcium and iodine.’

Verdict: You might feel like you’re doing your body a favour by upping your intake of fresh ingredients and cutting out the processed stuff, but #balanced it ain’t.
