If someone were to rename "paleo" to something more PC, and brand it as the diet that allows everything in the world except processed foods, and not talk so much about F-P-C and calories, it would take off and be very popular--except with the food manufacturer's and the government. There are a lot of big groups that really, really want us all eating wheat, corn, vegetable oil, MSG, and artificial sweeteners.
I've never been a conspiracy theorist, but a lot of corporations stand to lose if many more people are eating paleo.
There are millions of species of animals in the world.
There are millions of species of plants in the world.
Care to tell me what a million squared is?
It's one trillion.
There are then countless species of nuts and plenty dairy options to explore. There are literally trillions of food combinations out there - for all intents and purposes, an infinity of combinations since it will be impossible for any person to explore them all - and you're saying it's restrictive? Why? Because you can't eat oatmeal, crackers, soda and other crap that didn't exist until a few centuries ago? We survived for 2.5 million years on this "restrictive diet" and somehow not eating peanut butter and jelly makes it difficult?
I don't follow.
It's not a fad. People's iterations are fads. Real food can never be a fad, and if you think Paleo is a fad diet then you don't know what Paleo actually is.
Those dinners, my friends, are not fads. They are staples of mankind and will never grow old.
BTW, I'm truly sorry for torturing you all with those pictures!!!

Don't put your trust in anyone on this forum, including me. You are the key to your own success.
I'm not sure if you're suggesting that PTH is only relevant to those on dialysis—it isn't.
Sometimes experimenting with thyroid is warranted.
Thanks for the links on the salt you gave me. Are there any links that don't trace back to Ray Peat?
From what I can tell, salt is 'bad' for you because it increases your blood pressure. I've seen my blood pressure go from 160/100 to 120/80 with the switch to primal, so I have no concerns on that score.
What I do want to find out is what the positive effects of salt on the body are.
Disclaimer: I eat 'meat and vegetables' ala Primal, although I don't agree with the carb curve. I like the Perfect Health Diet a lot.

Selecting: I don't mind it too much when someone is ignorant about something and they admit it -- but to be this ignorant and so strongly opinionated is insanity.
