Seriously, this dieting stuff has gotten out of control. Eat less and move more? Don’t eat carbs? Really, we’re still peddling all that nonsense? There’s got to be more evolved thinking.
Almost everything you’ve heard about nutrition is wrong. Rely on science, not intuition. The fact is this: There are often many ways to get the same result. This is dieting. You want to lose weight and get lean. So which strategy will you chose? The Paleo nutritional plan has been around for a long time now (ya know, just millions of years…) but people are still confused, most likely because we weren’t exactly around back then to know for sure. Even if we were, does that mean it’s the best way to do things? What did we eat before the Paleolithic era? What did we do when we were evolving fish people, or amoeba blobs? Maybe we should get healthy by only eating single celled organisms… Or maybe there’s a way that involves both Paleo and current science.
Is all this stuff true? It says it on a chart I found on the internet, and lots of people swear by it, so I guess it must be true. However, if you’re not buying this Paleo bullshit, then you my friend, are an intelligent, upright Homo-Sapien, who has a fore and hind brain. If you stand erect, don’t use a club to kill wooly mammoths, and don’t email via cave etchings, maybe you can also consider the idea that we should get out of the Prehistoric era of nutrition, along with our brains. We live in the Modern era, with evolved ideas, and cutting edge technology that enhances our lives greatly, and people still don’t want to believe that it can enhance our nutrition too. Matt Stone tells you what is wrong with the Paleo plan in his book, “12 Paleo Myths, Eat Better than a Caveman.” Duh.
