    Steak, eggs, potatoes - fruits, nuts, berries and forage. Coconut milk and potent herbs and spices. Tea instead of coffee now and teeny amounts of kelp daily. Let's see how this does! Not really had dairy much, and gut seems better for it.

    Lost me at "A truly healthy diet features a broad range of fruits, vegetables, nuts, and legumes..."

    Fruits first on the list and nuts and legumes on it with meat not. Just most of the same old CW nonsense with a pretty new bow.

    True, the very last sentence says to favor grass-fed bison, not to mention the fact that sardines were one of the items listed. Overall not bad... it's something I'd send to a family member who wouldn't buy paleo, but would consider some changes.

    Side note: I loved that the advertisement/banner at the top (and both sides) of my screen was for "Quaker Whole Heart" as I read this, and not once did they mention eating oatmeal during the article. LOL!

    Healthy fruits aren't necessarily bad. Now,dried and processed fruits that for some reason have additional sugar added to them from things like HFCS and so on are bad,and make no sense. The syrup that they pack canned fruits in is ridiculous.

    No argument that all the other stuff is WORSE, but...

    Excessive fruit consumption will cause fat gain. Yes! Even the healthy plain old fruit, fruits. If I eat more than about 3 pieces a week, I will put on weight no matter what else I do with diet and exercise. I am not the only one, either. My wife has many friends that do Weight Watchers and were seeing some modest progress with it but when WW started that whole "Points Plus" nonsense which one of the hooks was 0 point fruits, every single one of my wife's friends put weight on. Now, I realize there could be a ton of other factors, but it's hard to ignore that the biggest change was make fresh fruits a "free, eat as much as you want item" and then they all put on weight.

    Putting fruit first on the list is foolish.

    Well,I can eat three bananas a day and not put on any fat,as can many other people.....it all really comes down to an individual thing.I'm not saying that anyone should run out and eat a whole bag of apples or anything, but in the context of a balanced diet eaten by a healthy person, natural fruits aren't that bad.If someone is overweight or metabolically damaged then yeah,keep the fruits to a minimum or just don't bother with them,but I love a banana after a hard workout and so does my body.

    You guys are ridiculous.
    It wasn't an ordered list. Jesus. Not a great article but I always say I eat "fruits, vegetables, and meat", it's not like the first thing I list is the one I eat most.

    I thought it was a lot better than most of the advice CW puts forward. And I liked the bit about lentils - I love them and I'm sure they love me. Could have had more recommendations e.g. ruminate grass fed meat, liver etc. But so much better than "heart healthy grains and Flora margarine"
