There seems to be a new trend in the libertarian movement – "going paleo" is how it is commonly referenced. Usually it means cutting out the sugars and grains in accordance with what researchers believe was the human diet for most of our history. These are foods, with which, according to the theory, the human body is therefore more comfortable. This diet takes on many forms, but as far as I can tell they all talk about reducing the amount of heavily processed carbohydrates and fats in the diet and in other ways seeking to eat foods that are more natural. There are several factors that have come together that has made this a popular diet among libertarians I’ve met.
