    Three things:

    1) Danzig is a horrible person - not a horrible singer!

    2) Grok missed the dinosaurs by a few dozen million years.

    3) No paleo or primal advocate says we can't eat grains - only that they aren't the most nutritionally sound thing to eat.

    But hey - if meat isn't your thing, can you deal with fish? Lots of people don't like this or that kind of meat. I don't see how not wanting to eat beef is a real critique of the nutritional scheme, though.

      I am not smart enough to understand what you are saying here.

      You're objecting to the idea of a diet having a label? Why not call it 'eating whole foods'. Is that too much like a label?

        Your answer is absolutely sensible Philosopher Dan, however, you're talking to someone who's not.
        His statement about eating meat going to be unhealthy for us in the long run is typical.

          My husband, a high school teacher was pretty astounded to find out that some of his students believed that humans lived concurrently with dinosaurs, then he realized that these students were low functioning and he had more compassion for them. I now understand why you had a hard time understanding The PB.

            Aren't modern crocodiles dinosaurs? His students were probably thinking Triceratops & the like though.

              You're thinking of birds.

                To the OP either you are primal or not...ffs stop trolling.
                A lot of people have eaten the SAD diet and gained a shit load of weight so of course you are going to hear about those success stories of people loosing weigh effortlessly by going primal.
                Like you I have no major issues with wheat/grains but man cutting them out, major energy, dropped 13lbs (now 180lbs and 12% bf at an age that puts me in my late 40s). Just because I have no issue with them does not mean they are good for me.
                FFS I sure there is vegetrarian/grainatarian site that you can go to and you can all pray to the gmo corn and the heavily modified wheat so go there and have fun, and leave those of us who know better alone.

                Eating primal is not a diet, it is a way of life.

                    Seems like if you feel like crap and don't think PB is healthy, you shouldn't eat it, and you should go away. Maybe do whatever your hero Scott Jurek does to get his manly body.
                    If you are new to the PB - please ignore ALL of this stuff, until you've read the book, or at least http://www.marksdailyapple.com/primal-blueprint-101/ and this (personal fave): http://www.archevore.com/get-started/

                      paleo/primal isn't low carb. and there are tons of us on this site that aren't here to lose weight. stop trolling. for realz

                        It's absolutely not his natural set point if he gave the right nutrition to his body.
                        Excellent point! That is what I was thinking. He clearly doesn't look to be at HIS natural weight/set point. There is that slightly ill appearance going on. I know that I've gotten really cut before and it required great sacrifice with my body type to get there in the way of not eating much. I look at those pictures and yes I was ripped!! But I don't look healthy with that gaunt thing going on. My body just naturally carries a bit of fat. By no means would one see me on the street and say man that guy is fat either.

                          That's not a dude in that picture, yo, that's a guy's head on Angelina Jolie's body...with a little bit of leg hair added for effect.
                          If I just said LOL, I lied. Do or do not. There is no try.

                            So you ate octopus, dairy, and vegetation? Or you ate eight times as much dairy as a vegetarian? This is a pure gem. Thanks.

                            Good thing your last several dozen generations of ancestors didn't feel that way or you wouldn't be here.

It can be grass-feed meat from a cow that was born in hypodermic oxygen tank free from all diseases, and it still turns me off. Plus you I wouldn't want a disease-free cow, you can need to be exposed to poisons.
                            This is an excellent and well-reasoned argument. You have a personal distaste for red meat, so nobody should eat it, we should have bread. Plus, the industrial meat industry is doing us a favor by exposing us to toxins. Thanks for enlightening us.

                            500 years ago, 75% of the populated landmass of the world was inhabited by hunter-gatherers. You don't think that's relevant?

                            Sure he did. I saw a documentary on it the other day. His options were Brontosaurus ribs or Brontosaurus steaks. Or he could go over Barney and Wilma's for dinner. I think you may be confused about human history. Just a little.

                            Some kids eat paste and Play-doh and legos and pennies and paper clips. Just because we CAN eat something doesn't mean it's optimal for us. Bread doesn't kill me, but it makes me sick. I would rather swallow a paper clip. Actually, I'd rather eat some delicious beef (raised on a real farm down the street on real grass, not in a hyperbaric chamber or hermetically sealed bubble).

                                Stop trying to figure out if primal is healthy for other people or what their motives are. If you are doing that, you have an agenda. Stay focused on yourself.
