From what I've gathered this diet is supposed to be mimicking the "grok's" diet as closely as possible (whatever hunters and gatherer's ate). As I frequent several paleo/primal resources on the Internet I get a bit confused. There are people out there following this diet who do the following on the daily basis: drink coconut cream by the can fulls, melt sticks of butters into their food, consume insane amount of bacon every day, eat/drink coconut and olive oil by several table spoons per day (or shots). I just don't understand how such eating habits are primal in any way. Back in the day, a grok might have come across a coconut tree, pick a coconut, drink the water, eat the flash and call it a day. I just don't see how our ancestors had accessed to all this fat that people seem to be shoving down their throats in obscene amounts. I do not have fat phobia as a I realized that saturated fat does not cause hart disease, but I'm still a bit confused as to what is the right way to eat as there are just so many different primal/paleo variations that I read about. Some people don't even eat vegetables and this diet and argue that they are complete unnecessary.
No announcement yet.
Confused on so many variations of paleo
