hunter gatherer diet


Definition A popular term for a diet rich in foraged fruits, plants, and game meats, but no “domesticated” foods–e.g., grains or dairy products.

The diet was the fare of primitive man; consumption of grains and use of dairy products translate as the ability to cultivate and harvest plants and domesticate milk-producing animals, both of which represent development of early humans. Some alternative health care providers believe that the allergies now commonly seen in modern man may be due to changes in the human diet wrought by domestication. 

Synonyms Caveman diet, paleo diet, paleodiet, paleolithic diet, Stone Age diet
