    I don't know how *anyone* (and that includes paleo folks) manage to choke down protein powders. That stuff is just nasty.

      coconut milk, berries, and a "good" protein powder is awesome.....there is as much difference in quality of protein powders as there is meats.

        Someone with good genetics can pretty much eat any crap they want and look good for it. Doesn't mean the behind the scenes stuff is in good shape.

          Can you imagine how much stronger he'd be if he ate a little real protein?

            I don't look down on people who eat vegan/vegetarian diets. I used to be one of them! . BUT when I hear someone say they're eating vegetarian or vegan for their health... I sort of want to do a facepalm... even when I WAS vegetarian, if I read or heard someone say they wanted to be veg for their health, I'd tell them they're probably better off eating meat. To me, the only reason to be veg*n is because you don't wanna eat animals.

              If one works out, eats a good amount of calories, and avoid processed foods, one will generally be in excellent health. There's nothing that says a person has to be paleo to be healthy. It's just one of many different lifestyles.

                  Not really an answer to a question per se, but more of a rebuttal to your post.

                    If we went back to hunter gatherer living then at least 3/4 of the population would die in a month. Yeah, the human race is sooo far above animals (sarcasm).
                    In all of the universe there is only one person with your exact charateristics. Just like there is only one person with everybody else's characteristics. Effectively, your uniqueness makes you pretty average.
