These two popular often debated diets base themselves off the “ancestral diet” theory, albeit with notable differences in vision and practice. Whereas the Paleo Diet reaches back to the late Paleolithic period embracing the caveman diet, the Warrior Diet regimen has its roots in the era of the great Spartans, Romans and Macedonians, embracing their diet principles along with cutting edge science in its nutrition manuals.
These two radical approaches to dieting are often the subject of discussion and debate among scholars, athletes and the health advocates. World champion MMA fighter Ronda Rousey admits to adhering to a combination of the Warrior Diet and the Paleo Diet to keep her body in fighting shape. And while she is not the first to notice similarities between the two, it’s important to acknowledge their differences as well.
As these two approaches comply as much as they do, how do you know which is what?
