    Paleo diet

    Wiki but there are heaps of better links;

    Paleolithic diet - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Like this one;

    Mark's Daily Apple

    Been doing a bit of reading about this, bit dubious about the lack of grains and whatnot. Amused a bit by the bit about how they only eat foods which require no production (hence the rejection of anything grain/flour related) but there are supposedly genuine paleo recipes which have stuff like mayo, processed cheese or heavily processed stuff like bacon in them. They never really address why French people eats tons of flour/grains and are lean and tend to focus in on some dodgy logic when it comes to the science backing the diet up. Still, I'm willing to give it a crack.

    Minor inconsistencies aside, anyone else given this a go?

    Going on the same diet as people whose life expectancy was 26. What could possibly go wrong?

    haha, confound.

    Should clarify, I'm thinking of integrating some of the recipes into my diet (the CSIRO book has a lack of summer recipes, lots involve baking). The salads look good but a bit concerned about the fat/oil/cholesterol content of some recipes.

    Yea, I stopped reading when they mentioned evolution (LOL-SCIENCEFAIL). So, I don't really know much about it specifically.

    The thing is, if you're just going to incorporate some recipes into your diet, it doesn't really matter what they are. As long as you get the nutrients and it's low on calories, it's probably healthy.

    In the Blog he seems to suggest the basics of any healthy eating plan:
    lean protiens, veg, exercise, sleep.

    and then offer a new idea about the means to the attainment of the same end which people are seeking. We aren't in the presence of an absolute truth in nutritional, so until we start all eating a nutritionally perfect goo, I think we will have to bounce between ideas

    Yea, no problems with lean proteins, veg, exercise, sleep, etc. Have a problem with cloaking that advice with BS explanations about cavemen and evolutionary optimized diet...

    + (expensive) supplements.

    And, what do you know, the bloke who runs the blog I posted earlier has his own supplement business. That's convenient.

    (not that he tries to hide that fact, though)

    Oh, and that book has no end to the

    "Our bodies evolved for short, infrequent bursts."

    O'RLY? Actually, they evolved for the exact opposite..like...I don't know...BIPEDALISM. Give up sprinting speed for endurance, lots of sweating to cool down during long chases, etc. That's why you can't out sprint most animals but if you're fit, you can out-run them over long distance.

    Now short, intense, bouts may be better for overall health, but the explanation isn't 'because we evolved to only sprint.'

    Lack of hair (myself not included) also helps with long distance running.

    The image of how 'in-tune' these traditional hunters are on that vid you posted took a bit of a hit when one of them ripped out a plastic water bottle, tbh.

    We evolved to drink bottled water.

    I guess as the theory becomes accepted more and more amongst the mainstream, more irrational (or very diffucult to prove/disprove via reason) ideas will find their way into the picture. Thanks Dawkins!

    Persistence hunt? It's fairly well accepted, and it's clear that even if it wasn't the driving force (which it probably wasn't), endurance is one of the side effects that humans have taken advantage of over the last several millenia.

    Was refering to the general view which has been taken to all human functions not the youtube video. Apologies for not being clear enough.

    It is certainly fine to see that endurance was a favourable characteristic, I just think the quest for a unified theory of everything leaves itself open to the same errors as any transcendent system where people are able to put their own twist on things, as per the blogger in the original post.
