    We should all be vegetarians/vegans doncha know?

    Because Australopithecus ate forest fruits and other woodland plants, vegetarians/vegans contend homo sapiens should also follow the same diet. Well I have good news! A new study has found they were also eating bark and woody substances. So get that blender out and add some bark to your smoothie. Yummy.

    Oh by the way, Australopithecus had extremely small brains.

    Conclusion: We should be vegetarians/vegans and add bark to our diet and have very small brains. Sounds reasonable to me I suppose. How do I shrink my brain?

    Umm maybe that isn't an optimal choice...Australopithecus went extinct a very long time ago.
    Primal/Paleo is not for everyone, it's for those who have committed to understand.
    READ THE BOOK! ...as Robb Wolf says: "Trying to convince people to save their own ass will burn you out."

    Vegetarians are the enemy of everything good and decent in the human spirit, and an affront to all I stand for -- the pure enjoyment of food. Anthony Bourdain

    and yes, calories DO count my little piggies

    Yeah, I saw this and I don't think it's very controversial because it's pretty well known that our brains grew as a result of eating meat.

    The problem is that our modern brains are smaller than Cro-Magnon's brain and Neanderthal's brain. I'm not so sure this is a good sign. Maybe we can just pack more smarts in a smaller area now, maybe not.

    Well, you eat bark any time you sprinkle something with cinnamon. I think that's a good tribute to Australopithecus.

    Yeah. Apparently, Jack Kruse has a saying: "Eat like a chimp, think like a chimp."

    I like vegans. They go good with a side of eggs.
