    As soon as I published my Layne Pennell piece, I saw your post! Hilarious…

    Ha! No worries, Layne just gets an extra plug from our powerhouse site. I wouldn’t be surprised if his server crashes.

  3. Comment at The Atlantic by ewong79:
    A. Butter isn’t allowed in the paleo diet! Dairy of any kind is a no-no, as it’s an agricultural product.
    B. According to Jared Diamond in “Guns, Germs, and Steel,” the transition from hunter-gatherer lifestyles to the agricultural lifestyle caused human populations to become shorter and less healthy (as observed in skeletons). Diamond seems to think that this change may be related to protein intake, among other factors. Diamond presents convincing evidence that scarcity and lack of variety are characteristic of agricultural diets, not hunter-gatherer diets.
    C. The Paleo diet differs from the Adkins diet in that it is low in fat (meat must be lean, no cream or cheese, and only some healthy oil is eaten), and the paleo diet emphasizes fruit for simple sugars (Adkins doesn’t allow much fruit, in my understanding). Also, paleo’s prohibition of added salt probably has benefits, at least for some.
    D. I’ve adopted the paleo diet, and I also run barefoot, do Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and do some other weird things. However, I drink alcohol often and eat donuts once in a while. I think that doing the diet, even say, 80% of the time has great benefits. I’ve certainly gotten leaner and stronger. I would recommend the diet to most anyone.

    Bob, is that you?

  4. Bob Ewing says:

    Haha, nope. I wouldn’t never eat donuts. 🙂

  5. As per paleo diet is good source of energy and keep your body healthy and energetic.So some of the things that should not be eaten include dairy products, sugar or sugar substitutes and wheat based products or high glycemic veggies. and animal fat. They all create extra calories to you body. Very nice and interesting post BoB
