Re: 7 part presentation by Cordain

that was good.

ive read all the Paleo books, but i was always skeptical of Cordain's opinion of fat content in tribal diets, i.e. recommending lean meats, while most tribal people, as far as im aware, revered the organs, fatty tissue and bone marrow as the most nutritious parts of an animal. nevertheless, it was a good video.

im still wondering if using Whey Protein is negative towards health, or that it being free of Casein, alright to supplement with.

Cordain addresses that. I believe his take on this is that if you can eat only game, or only naturally raised meats, great - eat the fat, eat the organs, etc...


However, the feedlot meat easily obtainable for most people contains a good deal more fat (both total fat and saturated) than game. His recommendation to eat the lean cuts isn't suggesting that early man did that - it's an attempt to roughly recreate the diet of early man with modern foods.

Now weather replicating our historical diet is the best way to proceed is a debate I'm going to steel clear off...
