    This doesn't make any sense. You restrict yourself of all sorts of delicious foods, based on optimism?
    This here is nothing but a cult, a religion. Flawed in all sorts of ways.
    I'm out of here.

      Actually I restrict myself of formerly delicious foods because I tried to for a few months (mainly cutting out grains) and had impressive health improvements and want to get even healthier. Also, I read the book Pure White and Deadly that convinced me sugar was bad news. I also read a meta analysis that convinced me saturated fat was not the demon it was made out to be.

      It seems your goal is to have a very long life. I'm not sure whether or not Primal living offers you the best chance of it. It does offer you the best quality of life and the healthiest way of life. Personally I consider quality of life more important than just living long, but then again everyone has their own goal.

      Also, you could try reading this paper:

          Always the fucking same. If you can't defend yourself, the other one is a troll. Pathetic.

          I do believe in healthy food and a healthy lifestyle and so one. But saying paleo is the ultimate healthy lifestyle is beyond my imagination.

              After only a few posts, you can to this conclusion? Doubt you came with an open mind to begin with, that being the case.

              Think on this:

              Female Menopause. This doesn't come on until beginning around 40-50+ years depending on the individual's biological clock. If people did not live long enough to go through this, we would never have evolved the mechanism to wind down our childbearing abilities. Women past childbearing can take on more responsibility in child rearing. They can hunt for food, watch over the older children for their daughers, etc.
              Start weight: 250 - 06/2009
              Current weight: 199
              Goal: 145

                  Pffttt. Whatever dude. You asked a legit question "How come people in the past didn't live longer than people now?" and people were kind enough to reply with sound and reasoned answers/arguments demonstrating that DIET is not to blame for the lower life expectancy of our ancestors.

                  People pointed out that infant mortality is included in life expectancy and this skews the results. Why? Because infant mortality has been GREATLY reduced and nearly eliminated in the modern world.

                  Others argued that, in the past, people were much more likely to die from injuries or infections that today are minor annoyances. It was a more dangerous time. If you twist an ankle today you just need to rest it for a few days. This same injury in the paleolithic past would be much more likely to result in your death. Other injuries/illnesses fall under the same argument.

                  Point out the flaws in these arguments. Best of luck. Especially considering the first one is a fact.

                  You do not show the same respect and courtesy that is given to you. Instead, you just decree these well reasoned arguments are "assumptions" and "dogma". Give me a break.
