    I agree. Personally, I am an omnivore. I know very little about nutrition, but I do know a lot about other things. Did paleoists check how people actually looked like in paleo time?
    Below is a lady:
    Venus of Willendorf - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    I know it's a symbol, but something tells me that paleo men did want their women to be fertile and didn't set the weight goal (90 pounds and not a single pound more). I also doubt that paleo women had this goal (90 and no more) if a different ideal was in the air.

    I've always wondered the same thing....wouldn't women be more likely to be on the fatter side than "naturally lean"?

    Probably leaner side for part of the year, fatter in other seasons, due to shortage of food.

    When I let go of what I am, I become what I might be.

    Not necessarily Paleo other than being on MDA, but there's enough craziness in the last 80-odd pages of the iodine thread to last a lifetime.

    There are that many now! I started to read it, reached page 5 or 6, started to watch some video where a medical doctor conflated Copernicus with Galileo right at the beginning and got discouraged. But I am trying to remember to add some kombu to soups.

    Oh thank GOD for that. Hope they don't start a new one. They should take their craziness, nutjob conspiracies and ridiculous 'protocols' over to yahoo and stay there.

    Hahahha! Best comment. As a former chemist who worked in the molecular biology field, it is actually entertaining to read some of these threads when they go awry. I might have a degree in chemistry but I didn't get training in nutrition. I do think many people mean well in trying to post journal articles on nutrition and health, but when people get militant and argumentative, I generally don't even take their journal references seriously.
