    Don't you find that all the eucalyptus oil goes rancid when you deep fry the koalas? Have you tried them carpetbag? Mmmmm

    Four years Primal with influences from Jaminet & Shanahan and a focus on being anti-inflammatory. Using Primal to treat CVD and prevent stents from blocking free of drugs.

    Eat creatures nose-to-tail (animal, fowl, fish, crustacea, molluscs), a large variety of vegetables (raw, cooked and fermented, including safe starches), dairy (cheese & yoghurt), occasional fruit, cocoa, turmeric & red wine

Meat with absolutely no seasoning at all is pretty darn boring. It at least needs some salt. Since ancient man didn't have access to any of these things, fruit was probably preferred. At least I'd rather eat mangoes than raw or steamed squirrel.
    Not even true. My lamb and beef require no seasoning, apart from salt which I do because its nutritonally necessary. All other stuff is crap to me, whose toxins outweighs their nutritional benefit. Meat tastes best when made simply. Put a lamb on an osado and cook for 8 hrs, bam.

    When you're really hungry, all kinds of things taste good. I think we are too spoiled to have any appreciation of what Paleolithic man might have been happy to eat.

Why is this flawed logic?
    It's not flawed logic, but humans aren't the only animal that wants to eat fruit. Lots of abundant fruit means lots of birds and squirrels and other things that want to eat those fruit too.

    Like Leilani says, tubers likely made up a much more significant and reliable part of our diet.

    The bit I think you're missing is what I posted earlier. We only grew our large brains after we started eating meat. Eating meat is one of the things which has made us who we are today.
    Disclaimer: I eat 'meat and vegetables' ala Primal, although I don't agree with the carb curve. I like Perfect Health Diet and WAPF Lactofermentation a lot.

    Actually, if you turn on the history channel scientists are saying advanced aliens came here thousands of years ago and created us by crossing their DNA with Neanderthal. Would explain the sudden rise of civilization, pyramids, the missing link, etc. Anyway if we are half alien... who knows what the aliens ate?
    OMG, I didn't realize you were 9 years old! Sorry. I would have been slightly less responsive to your drivel had I understood the level you are operating at.

    I think an all fruit diet is just as much a modern creation of accessibility as a Paleo diet made up entirely of meat, vegetables, and coconut oil. Neither one accurately reenact all Paleolithic human diets. Vegetables as we know them aren't anything like plants tens of thousands of years ago, and they certainly weren't in such abundance 24/7/365. I think both ends of the spectrum need to reconcile with the fact that neither of these are truly prehistoric dietary replications and acknowledge that the truth lies somewhere in between, but also that everything Neolithic isn't horrible and often improves upon the fundamentals.

    Besides, life goes on, except for those who died from malnutrition, celiac, and other such conditions.
