    Definitely. I've seen the food the wealthy ladies I work for keep around the house - lots of fancy frozen meals from Whole Foods, fat-free skim milk, whole wheat artisan bread, fruit, fat-free Greek yogurt, granola bars, etc. They also jog for hours around their subdivisions pushing strollers. They follow CW to the letter, and they are REALLY skinny, but they don't all look healthy.

    Paleo is for people who didn't get the Zone in the late 90s.

    Paleo is people food.

    You have a pet? What should you feed it? What it eats in the wild, of course. Well, guess what? You're currently maintaining a captive human. Feed it what wild humans eat for best results.
    Steak, eggs, potatoes - fruits, nuts, berries and forage. Coconut milk and potent herbs and spices. Tea instead of coffee now and teeny amounts of kelp daily. Let's see how this does! Not really had dairy much, and gut seems better for it.

    I never thought of us as being captive humans, but you're so right. Sure, we live longer in captivity, but are we happier and healthier than we would be in the wild? We're like zoo animals that can't be returned to the wild because we never learned the skills to make it in our natural habitat. Kinda sad.
