How to Follow the Caveman Diet

If you are hunting for the perfect diet, eat like your ancestors did 30,000 years ago and get yourself a toned stone-age body.


  • : Never change your diet without first consulting your physician.
  • Step 1: Remove non-caveman foods from diet Remove sugars, grains, beans, potatoes, and salt from your diet.
  • Step 2: Start with breakfast Start your diet with a breakfast of bacon, eggs, and berries.
  • Step 3: Continue for three days Continue eating breakfast according to the caveman diet for three days, while eating your normal lunch and dinner.
  • TIP: Check online or at a bookstore for caveman recipes.
  • Step 4: Add lunch Add a paleo lunch to your menu: try a salad, wild mushrooms, and venison. Continue eating a paleo breakfast and lunch for three more days.
  • Step 5: Add a snack Satisfy your in-between-meal cravings with a snack consisting of nuts and fruit.
  • TIP: Peanuts are a bean, not a nut. The same goes for cashews, so avoid these.
  • Step 6: Add dinner Complete the transition to your new diet by adding a caveman-inspired dinner. A hearty salmon with turnips makes for a terrific modern stone-aged meal.
  • FACT: Neanderthals lived in Europe about 200,000 years ago, but disappeared only 30,000 years ago.
