    How to respond to friends about ''caveman bread''

    Primal Fuel
    I am looking for a good response to my friends and family who are asking me what I think about the new findings that suggest cavemen ate grains and bread.

    "I feel better not eating bread"
    Liz.

    Zone diet on and off for several years....worked, but too much focus on exact meal composition
    Primal since July 2010...skinniest I've ever been and the least stressed about food

    Point out it wasn't *actually* bread.

    From what I read there weren't even any grains in it...how they called it bread is beyond me. More like potato pancakes.

    Mark had a post on it sometime within the last week. Have a look in his blog archives.

    chances are, the friends asking aren't really interested in a discussion so I think lizch is right on with 'I feel better not eating bread and grains"

    My husband would respond with a cheerful "Good for them" and change the subject.

    It wasn't even grains! It was ground up roots and cattails. "Bread" was not mentioned anywhere in the study, but the media somehow latched onto this notion.

    exactly. they just want an "a-ha gotcha" moment. Only, by asking the question they demonstrate they didn't take any time to 1) read or 2) consider the information in the actual report.

    Read Mark's blog post on it, he does a nice summary.
