Funny, I read that article at work yesterday. (And, of course, found it very interesting.) Most of the Paleo people I know are awful.

I'm reading a book called The Jungle Effect by Daphne Miller, and it's about the health benefits of eating indigenous diets of our -recent- (i.e. a handful of generations) ancestors. It's not vegan, but the menus are all veg-centric and could easily be made animal-free. Part of the point Miller is trying to make is that historically, the healthiest cultures in the world have subsisted mainly on plants, and that meat and other animal products have almost always been flavoring additions or infrequent celebration foods.

I'm doing all right with the fruits, nuts, and vegetables. I'm having some trouble getting those fungus-covered tropical leaves. emoticon

Long before the "paleo" fad, I pondered how our ancestors ate, and what I could learn from it. My theory was that as opportunistic omnivores, they probably ate whatever was available, and the easier it was to catch, the more they ate of it. Fruits, nuts, leaves = very easy to catch. Wooly mammoth = hard to catch. Oreos = totally impossible to catch.

What an excellent article. I liked the closing statement. emoticon I found it fascinating that colon length varies depending on culture. So, I guess if we want to go Paleo, we need to add insects to our diets. Bleh.

A fascinating read.
Paleo diet books are quite good for the wellbeing of paleo diet book authors, and that's about it.

This article is from Scientific American, and takes on the current "definition" of the Paleo Diet. Kind of interesting... I especially like his description of the human alimentary canal... ha ha, I'm easily entertained.
