    The more natural and raw and colourful the food is the better (in most
    cases).

    A TV chef here in Australia released a book of paleo diet meals, including
    one for baby formula.
    This formula included liver and marrow, and was found to include nearly
    400% of a baby’s rdi of iron. In fact, it was found that the formula might
    endanger lives.

    And yeah, I’m always quick to point out that the average lifespan of early
    humans never really passed 35.

    *Fish* – 2 to 3 portions a day gives a grown person all the protein and
    “healthy fat” oil you need a day (alternatively white meat from birds like
    chicken or turkey)
    *Salads* – a good mix of leafy greens and root plants gives you all the
    “nutrition” (vitamins) your body needs. Cannot go wrong with a big salad
    (unless too much salad dressing and bacon…)
    *EAT SNACKS* – water, fruit, and nuts add bulkage and makes your metabolism
    faster helping your weight not grow; making it easier to lose weight

    When will evolve to the point where cake is healthy?

    If you really want a “paleo” diet, you’ll probably need to add a lot more
    snails and insects. And yes, since the crops available today are entirely
    different from the plants that existed in the paleolithic, precisely
    because we’ve been selectively breeding them for thousands of years, you’ll
    still not actually accomplish it.

    I think it’s interesting to look at existing hunter-gatherer cultures and
    see how even they can’t give us a real window on the past. The best
    example is cassava. It’s critical to the survival of many tribes in
    Africa; the Ewe language calls it agbeli, meaning “there is life”. Some of
    those tribes will insist that they’ve always used it as a staple of their
    diet, gathering it from time immemorial. But they’re wrong, because we can
    remember the time they started using it. That time was after the 16th
    century, because cassava is a New World plant, introduced to Africa by
    Portugese traders bringing it over from Brazil.

    I don’t know why I decided this just now, but I think this guy is better
    than Hank. Sorry, Hank, but you are now #2!

    The paleo diet is becoming more popular, but research suggests its claims
    aren’t all that scientific.

    My favorite foods in the world are processed carbs :’(

    watches this while eating a tub of ice cream…

    70% of the world can not eat ice cream?! Oh the cruelty!

    My philosophy is that anything that makes people pay more attention to what
    they eat, while still allowing a balanced diet, is a good thing. While I
    find most people who do a “paleo diet” to be doing something very immoral
    (few people go hunt their own wild game, instead relying on factory farm
    raised domesticated species), it is possible to get a balanced diet with
    it.

    Why do people do a paelo diet over just counting calories?

  13. Alise A May 5, 2015 at 9:30 pm -

    I don’t get the paleo concept . . . the food humans “evolved on?” Aren’t we
    STILL evolving??

    Nothing wrong with salt. Just don’t touch premade garbage that is loaded
    with sodium and sugar.
    I dont really agree with the absolute definition of the paleo diet, but
    general “JERF” is good enough. Just eat real food, avoid processed food,
    eat meat, plants water. I really hate labels so that’s good enough.

  15. BobDangerman May 5, 2015 at 9:34 pm -

    Because the food people with absolutely no medical or scientific knowledge
    ate was somehow healthier…

    Papua new guinea highlanders eat over 90% carbs, mostly sweet potatoes.
    Inuits eat 2kilos meat daily. Both eat paleo.

    Paleolithic people ate a pretty wide variety of stuff, and most of what
    they are isn’t available to us anymore. Great video:

    “European American”
    I am from Sweden so I guess I am European American.

    Glad to see the comment section filled with people making it personal and
    anecdotal, way to not do science guys. Well my great granny says… well I
    subjectively feel (though I have no evidence it wasn’t something else or
    just placebo)… Well processed things are bad so cutting them out must be
    good? Like, bread is unhealthy, or something? I want it to be true so that
    I don’t have to admit for falling for the marketing hype.

    Someone tell Egoraptor.
