Registered dietician nutritionist Sharon Palmer, MS, RDN, cannot believe the paleo diet is still going strong,

"The emphasis on meat and avoidance of grains and legumes is unsustainable for the health of people and the planet," she says.

Paleo diets encourage high intake of red meats and animal proteins, and the elimination of dairy, grains, legumes, and many fruits.

Naturally low in calories and carbohydrates, the diet will help with weight loss but there are potential health consequences.

We're talking anything from fatigue, headache, constipation, and mood swings to increased risk of heart disease and certain cancers.

It's time to set paleo aside and embrace healthy foods from all food groups.
