What is Primal?

If you are new to the primal lifestyle, you might be asking, “What does eating primal mean?”

The simple answer often given is to “eat like a caveman.”

While that’s the general idea, no one expects you to go out and forage for your food.

Living primal means eating the way humans had adapted to for 200,000 years prior to the development of modern agriculture. That means a diet high in protein, fat, and low-GI carbohydrates.
