    Some examples please? From what I have read, tubers, dark green and brightly colored vegetables would be a good place to focus.

    From what I've read, he's fine with green beans, snow peas, and the like because they are mostly pod, not seed.

    I think he's probably a great person doing great stuff. His style is a bit chicken-littleish and I prefer Mark's delivery overall. His book was good but not the best one out there.
    If you are new to the PB - please ignore ALL of this stuff, until you've read the book, or at least http://www.marksdailyapple.com/primal-blueprint-101/ and this (personal fave): http://www.archevore.com/get-started/

    I didn't like his book, partly because of his writing style - a lot of it was, stop arguing, just try it for 30 days and then we'll talk. His podcasts are way better and they're free. He does come across as a genuinely nice guy, laid back, no airs, which I like

    Different strokes for different folks. I read the Paleo Solution first before I got into anything else- and I felt he did a good job of remaining scientific while presenting material in a manner that's comedic and genuinely "real". He's a bit more mainstreamed.. "dumbed down" for the average joe but I think that's necessary to get the info out there. Not everyone is into the hardcore science or geek speak like me......... and while I may take the time to dig through scientific mumbo jumbo because I'm a nerd like that- not everyone has the patience to read that type of material.

    Something for everything. Robb has his place in the movement for sure.
