Paleo diet was the most googled diet of 2013, according to a Dec. 30 NPR News report. Whether this means that this was the “year of paleo” or that the paleo movement is gaining momentum is up for interpretation.

An U.S. News Health article scheduling a social media discussion the paleo diet observed that “no diet is as popular, as omnipresent as omnipresent as the Paleo Diet. “ Also known as the “Stone Age or Caveman Diet,” the paleo diet suggests one should consume a diet close to what the ancestors ate, including vegetables, meat, tubers and fruit, NPR reports.

But the diet itself is evolving and changing with the new tims. “It seems clear now that there are some genetic changes that allow some of us to partially adapt to agriculture,” says Chris Kresser, author of “Your Personal Paleo Code,” which promotes an individualized approach to the diet. Kresser is not the paleo diet guru. In 2013, paleo searches peaked in April, when evolutionary biologist Marlene Zuk's book Paleofantasy was published.
