Facebook exchange today.
Friend posts "Realized I already eat 80% paleo these days... considering going 90-95% paleo, can't commit to 100% because I need to have cheese in my life."
I comment pointing her towards Primal and say that might fit a little bit better for her than Paleo, and provided a link to this site. She comments back thanking me for the link and says she'll take a look.
Someone else (who I don't know) then comments "I looked up the primal diet. No way I could eat like that. I Love my carbs. I also love my fats too. But to not eat Carbs, or much carbs? I couldn't do it. I do like the saying 'if you eat a ton, weigh a ton, exercise a ton, chances are you'll still weigh a ton'"
Sigh. I decide not to bother commenting.
Three minutes later, the same person comments again "I looked up the paleo diet, I would say my pescetarian/vegetarian diet is similar to that."
Sounds like she did some extensive research in those three minutes to get all of that so totally wrong.
Needless to say I haven't bothered to comment any further ... I have no interest in getting into arguments with random people on Facebook (random people who clearly have no real interest in learning anything new anyway).
