    I want to eat like Homo erectus or a Neanderthal or a stone age human, my neighbors testify. But why do we choose these particular ancestors as starting points? They do seem tough and admirable in a really strong five o’ clock shadow sort of way. But if we want to return to the diet our guts and bodies evolved to deal with, we should not be looking at our most recent ancestors. Instead, we need to understand the diet of our ancestors during the time when the main features of our guts, and their magical abilities to turn food into life, evolved. We need, in other words, to look at apes, monkeys and other non-human primates.
    Jesus, what a tool. Why not just take it to the Precambrian as well?

    Since the vast majority of science on nutrition completely sucks, I find the grok analogy has been far more helpful in improving my health then all the scientific literature out there combined.

    I hadn't read the article, but I loved that he specifically stated "non-human primates." Because we aren't feeding humans, apparently?

    Yes, while we're at it, we should probably look into eating like worms - because at some point all living things were invertebrates. Therefore, we can safely recommend a diet comprised mostly of dirt for modern man.

    Just to be on the safe side we should take it to before the eukaryotes split off from the rest of the primordial soup.

    I'll add that eating meat freed us up to do other things. And that's when we stopped being apes.

    Well, most of us stopped being apes~ I've known a knuckle-dragger or two over the years

    And that's why I'm here eating HFLC Primal/Paleo.
