The Paleolithic diet consists of foods that can be hunted and fished, such as meat and seafood, and foods that can be gathered, such as eggs, nuts, seeds, fruits, vegetables, mushrooms, insects, herbs, and spices.

The meats that are recommended to consume are preferred to be free of food additives, preferably wild game meats and grass-fed beef since they contain higher levels of omega-3 fats compared with grain-produced domestic meats.

Food groups that advocates claim were rarely or never consumed by humans before the Neolithic (agricultural) revolution are excluded from the diet, mainly grains, legumes (e.g. beans and peanuts), dairy products, salt, refined sugar and processed oils.

Many of these foods would have been available at certain times of the year, and may or may not have been consumed. Some advocates consider the use of oils with low omega-6/omega-3 ratios, such as coconut oil, olive oil, avocado oil, to be healthy and advisable.

The paleolithic diet is a modern dietary regimen that seeks to mimic the diet of preagricultural hunter-gatherers; it generally corresponds to what was available in any of the ecological niches of Paleolithic humans.

Based upon commonly available modern foods, it includes cultivated plants and domesticated animal meat as an alternative to the wild sources of the original pre-agricultural diet.

The ancestral human diet is inferred from historical and ethnographic studies of modern-day hunter-gatherers as well as archaeological finds, anthropological evidence and application of optimal foraging theory.
