Are you familiar with THE PALEO DIET?  

There is good reason that a paleolithic diet may serve you.  Let me back up and explain. The paleolithic diet is based on the principle that we should be eating the same foods that our ancestors ate thousands and thousands of years ago. Why? There has been a dramatic change in our food over the past fifty years and while our DNA and our biology has changed very little, these changes in our food supply has led to an ever increasing rate of obesity, chronic degenerative diseases, allergies, and especially food-related reactions.
