    Yup it is an assumption based on logic and common sense. There was no mass agriculture so if you have no ready supply of food you will eat anything you find - you would be daft not to.

    Funny you keep having this laughable attempts to poo-poo primal/paleo what is your theory then?

    Was there some grain co-op in the jungle? Trained monkeys driving combine harvesters in the African plains? Elephants tilling the soil with their tusks? Would love to hear how you think man ate.

    I am not talking about lines of latitude but seasons. Whether it is summer, winter, spring, autumn OR wet and dry I am talking about changes in climate that affect growing paterns.
    Eating primal is not a diet, it is a way of life.

    You clearly don't understand seasonalities in different climatic zones. You are formulating your assumptions on temperate climate which proves that you have no idea what you are talking about. Can you tell me in which season berries grow in Equatorial Guinea?
    How man ate, I have no idea, I wasn't there 10,000 years ago.

    Stop being a troll.

    Do you have anything relevant to contribute?

    Stop calling people trolls when you have nothing to contribute.

    IMO (so don't ask for any links) Humans are opportunistic omnivores . If you can catch it and it's edible, in the pie hole it goes. I think clans that hung in certain areas/climates developed food preferences/tolerances. For example, my European ancestors were landlubbers~ I do better with lake fish than ocean fish. Wouldn't think it matters, but my joints ache if I eat too much salmon.

    Foods aren't seasonal anymore. I think that also makes a difference~ My paleo ancestors didn't have strawberries in February or citrus ever. I can eat strawberries for a few weeks, then I start getting hives~ Hmmm, think there's a connection?

    Maybe paleo/primal is not so rigid after all? Except for processed food, of course~

    If you had read the whole thread you would have seen that my very first post was an attempt at responding to the OP (rather than be trolled by you).

    Anyway. Enough silliness. The Ignore list feature is there for a reason. User added.

    Carefully weigh three equal portions of African Savanah, Seaside Foraging & and mixed contemporary Hunter Gatherer season lightly with the Neolithic if it suits your palate then stir it up and feast.
    Avoid temptation of post industrial foods as they have not killed enough people yet to be an evolutionary player in the Human Genome.

    If you had read the whole thread you would have seen that I never trolled YOU but you trolled me instead and now you are in tears. Great idea about the ignore button. No one ever asked you to reply to my posts but you just couldn't resist calling someone a troll just because you disagree.

    OMG do you even read, what you write? A season is a season no matter if it is in a temperate or tropical zone - the meaning of season is very clear!?!

    As to when berries grow in Equatorial Guinea I have no idea but I can tell you any hunter/gatherer would know - which is exactly the point I am making which is a hunter/gatherer would know his/her surroundings and would know how to live off the land to assume otherwise is absurd.

    Actually 10,000 years is pretty easy as that was basically the start of agriculture and we have some pretty good records about that.

    If you are as clueless as you say you are on how man ate before 10,000 lets make it simple for you, lets drop you an area of your choice fend for yourself, what are you going to eat?

    PS are you going to contribute to this (and other) threads at all?
