Do we actually know how they ate? Didn’t the diet change and vary over the course of the millennia? Isn’t picking one era just as arbitrary is simply eating modern food?
Also, I’m bound to believe that almost all food advice and diets are unsupported bij scientific research, save (or maybe even including) “don’t eat (much) more than you need/burn” and “variety is your friend”
They had a high carbs/fat diet. There is a dietitian who talks about this, and I believe its on tedtalks. The "paleo" diet of today is nothing more than starving yourself. Your main source of energy as a human is carbs. This is what "paleo" faggots make you cut. Which is why when you meet people in those fad diets they are always exhausted from low energy. The huge problem in the modern world is sugar. There is way tooooooo much sugar in everything. There is a research team at UCSF who is studying the effects on the human body and the results were alarming. It the main source of obesity, heart disease, and obviously diabetes. The whole no fat in your diet is based off some bunk study back in the 50s.
Based on romanticised and delusional notions of coming full circle, and being able to fill the shoes of one's ancestors.
Actuality is, humans historically have had many, many different diets. There are more personalized and intelligent ways to engineer what types of foods you eat. Even the basic heuristic of avoiding heavily processed food will be adequate for most people who don't care to know more.
"There’s a lot of conflicting information about saturated fats. Should I eat them or not? The American Heart Association recommends limiting saturated fats – which are found in butter, cheese, red meat and other animal-based foods. Decades of sound science has proven it can raise your “bad” cholesterol and put you at higher risk for heart disease."
"When you hear about the latest “diet of the day” or a new or odd-sounding theory about food, consider the source. The American Heart Association makes dietary recommendations only after carefully considering the latest scientific evidence."
>>7636751 >What does /sci/ think of "the paleo diet"? Is there some legitimate scientific/biological backing for the idea that it's healthy to eat the way our caveman ancestors did? No, it's an appeal to tradition.
