    Introduction: The aim of the study is to estimate the effect of paleo diet and to determine current knowledge on the same and to create awareness on Palaeolithic diet. The Palaeolithic diet is called as paleo diet, caveman diet or stone age diet is mainly based on foods presumed to be available to Palaeolithic humans. Like other famous diets, the paleo diet is promoted as a way to improve health. Limited data exist on metabolic effects on humans eating the die, though the available data suggest following this diet may lead to improvements in terms of body composition and metabolic effects as compared to the typical western diet. The diet is a fast growing trend and hence changes and awareness have to be made. Even though the diet is very diverse, most people don’t follow correct diet patterns and tend to eat the wrong food. Therefore, it is imperative that awareness is generated about the diet. Materials and Methods: A survey was conducted among the paleo diet people through an online survey. The questionnaire comprised of 24 questions which aimed to assess the populations current knowledge on the composition of diet, benefits and side effects of paleo diet. About 53 responses were collected and analyzed. Result: The questionnaire results were noted and all the answers were statistically analysed. People think that paleo diet is comparatively better than our normal diet. Conclusion: We have come to know the preference of diet among the people is paleo. Palaeolithic diet is more preferred because of its benefits.
