  • What's Wrong With The Primal Diet and Paleo Diet?

    According to Raw Food Health us primal diet eaters believe the best foods are fatty meats, organ meats, dairy, honey, minimal fruit and vegetables, and coconut, all served raw.

    Should I laugh or cry?

        It's like they've Google-translated into Swahili and back again to get that summary.

            True, and being healthy is my goal so laughing it is.

            The person behind that website seems to believe fruit is the best choice, and eats like this:

            For breakfast I might eat a luscious, juicy watermelon in two sittings, which accounts for 1355 calories. My lunch is a banana smoothies, or 12 medium bananas, which equals 1260 calories.


            My dinner is 10 kiwi fruit (464 calories) , followed about an hour later by a large bowl of salad with four tomatoes, a small piece of avocado (I suggest that most people do not consume overt fats for the first few months on this diet, as fat hampers the body's ability to absorb simple sugars from the blood stream into cells, which can diminish energy and causes problems) and some assorted vegetables (235 calories).

            For a snack I may eat 100 grapes at 161 calories. The grand total is 3571 calories for the day, and my ratio is at six percent fat, seven percent protein, and 87 percent carbohydrates. Perfect.


            As much as I like bananas I would probably get a bit fed up eating 12 of them in one go ...

                This article even used plenty of references. Just shows that there is enough "evidence" to support almost any faulty claim. Misinterpretations and poorly constructed studies are the norm

                  One classic sign of garbage science is articles that don't link their references. This is the Internet, and you can at least give us the abstract from PubMed.

                        Not even worth our effort, guys. If they don't want to portray the primal diet like it is practiced then that's their own problem.

                        It is interesting that fruitarians think that humans are adapted to eat large quantities of modern high-sugar fruit. Herbivores get most of their calories from fat in the form of short-chain fatty acids, but humans have a limited capability to produce those, especially from modern fruit. Because all animals are best adapted to run on fat for health but we can't make enough of it from fermentation we ought to eat a fat-rich diet. Pretty simple. You can't expect these people to know things like how herbivore's metabolism actually works, but you can expect them to have many assertions as to what a herbivore's physiology is like and who is one.

                            Really isn't much more to say. Bad enough to try and use The China Study as evidence against, but as supposed evidence ABOUT, LOL.

                              Anyone want to let them know Eskimo is a reasonably insulting label that is politically incorrect? They are Innuit. Also, tubers? In the high Arctic? I've spent enough time up there to know that tubers are just not going to grow there.
