A diet that typically consists of meat, fruit, vegetables, and nuts. "Paleo" is a shortening of "Paleolithic," referring to foods that are thought to have been available to be consumed by humans in the Paleolithic period (or "Stone Age"). Derek's on the paleo diet, so he literally never eats bread.

paleo

(Describing) a diet that typically consists of meat, fruit, vegetables, and nuts. The word is a shortening of "Paleolithic," as it refers to foods that are thought to have been available to be consumed by humans in the Paleolithic period (or "Stone Age"). I don't know much about the diet, but I can tell you that pasta is definitely not paleo.
