There is no single "Hunter-Gatherer Diet". There have been innumerable hunter-gatherer tribes who ate different foods depending on their time in history, geography, season, and culture. Yet they had many commonalities in what they ate -- and didn't eat.
Similarly, this growing evolutionary movement goes under many names. Here's my list. Am I missing any? What other terms does this movement go by? Are their more neighboring tribes? What terms do you use and why?
- Ancestral (Ancestral Diet, Ancestral Health)
- Caveman (Caveman Diet)
- Evolution (Evolutionary Fitness, The New Evolution Diet, The Evolution Diet)
- Human (Human Diet)
- Hunter-Gatherer (Hunter-Gatherer Diet)
- MovNat (MovNat Lifestyle)
- Native (Native Nutrition, Native Diet)
- Neanderthal (Neaderthin, Neaderthal Diet)
- Paleo (Paleo Diet, Paleolithic Diet, Paleolithic Lifestyle, Zone Paleo)
- Prehistoric (Prehistoric Diet)
- Primal (Primal Diet, Primal Lifestyle)
- Stone Age (Stone Age Diet)
- Miscellaneous: Meatatarian, Comanche Diet, Pre-Columbian
And approaches that share some commonalities, despite including more grains and dairy:
- Warrior Diet
- Weston A. Price / WAPF
