I also have a problem with the rhetoric of going paleo/primal. If asked to explain my diet, I'm sure as heck going to feel silly trying to explain who Grok is and what he ate, much less trying to fight off the critics of the lifestyle beyond those that argue that one cannot live a true Paleolithic lifestyle these days. It's true, if we were striving to live as our ancestors do, we'd all be foraging for wild game and eating insects and whatever we could get our (literally) grubby paws on. Therefore I just tell people that I eat little to no processed foods, a lot of vegetables, meats, and natural fats because dietary fats are not the sole cause of atherosclerosis. It's a hard sell, and I'm not even a doctor trying to convince people. You have my respect for having an open mind and I wish you luck with convincing your patients and fellow doctors.
