    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 ...

    It's called a straw man argument.

    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.
