    Dumb (?) question...

    Primal Fuel
    Paleo is supposed to take us back to the "beginning"...right? And Paleo compared to modern life was simple...right?

    So why is Primal Nutrition, when I read it here, so complicated?

    Just curious...

    There are no dumb questions.

    Only stupid morons like Grok who rants about "freedom" and Ron Paul, and so on, but funds fascist chinese slavers.

    Start hiking up into the Canadian Rockies far from civilization, using only your wits and hunting tools+skills, gathering skills, etc... to live. Then things will be simple because there aren't many choices, live or die based on what you come across (or what comes across you).

    Back here in civilization, which I doubt you are trying to flee, there are tons of choices, many bad. So much of the complexity is training people how to stay clear of the bad choices in order to get something that comes close. The more choices one has, and the more prevailing bad influences from the recent decades, the more complicated it is.

    Oh, and people themselves are complicated because everyone is different genetically. So there is that too.

    But quite frankly, once you have been doing it long enough, it becomes no longer complicated.

    Just the way it is.

    Wow, now you are hijacking everyone else's threads (I must have really touched a sensitive nerve.) For the record, I don't fund any government owned companies in China.

    It doesn't need to be complicated; some people make it that way.

    The longer you are here, you will notice two distinct categories of folks: the Science Groks and the Zen Groks.

    The Science Groks like to track and analyze data and like double-blind studies .... a lot.

    The Zen Groks are more about getting in touch with their bodies and the changing seasons, tend to be more guided by intuition, and say F the numbers.

    Each camp shakes their head in dismay at the other.

    Sounds like you might be a Zen Grok, eh?

    If so, it's simple: eat animals and plants when hungry, sleep a lot, get some sun, play more, go outside and move around and lift some things, avoid drama and danger.

    Nice classifications! I admit that I rely heavily on the Science Groks, so that I can take what they've learned and use it to live as a Zen Grok. Is that terribly sneaky? I don't know how to pay back the Science Groks for their contributions! I feel like a thief!

    Good synopsis TigerLily. Puts me firmly in the Zen group I guess.

    It's become difficult because we now have so much damaging crap to consume.

    It's not hard. Eat real food, nothing in a bag or a box.
