Why is the Paleo diet is the worst out there? Find out.

I absolutely loved this article. Just loved it. Hope it's not a repost.

Re: Why is the Paleo diet is the worst out there? Find out.

355 views as of right now, and Zero comments. Is it a repost? I thought it was a very recent article.

I also thought it was a fun read given the recent "Paleo diet ranks at the bottom of 20 diets examined" thread.... heh.

Oh well.

Re: Why is the Paleo diet is the worst out there? Find out.

Interesting article, I always thought that a more paleo-type diet wasn't recommended by governments because of sustainability. Theres very few people eating 1.5-2lbs of meat a day with a large amount of vegetables. We certainly couldn't sustain any of the larger populations of the world doing it, though the profit on grains makes sense as well.

I think that statement is a generalization. I stopped eating a paleo type diet because I could not afford it. I can easily throw down 10lbs of meat a day.

Err, let me clarify...

I think anyone is more than capable of eating 2lbs of meat a day. I meant that in the grand scheme of things, there are very few people who DO eat more than 2 lbs of meat a day. When I was growing up I rarely ate more than .5-.75lbs of meat a day. It's shown as bad to eat a lot of red meat.

If everyone in our populace began eating 2+lbs of meat a day as I and many others who are doing a diet paleo, or similar to paleo, we would be short on supply pretty quickly I'd imagine. That, or we'd see the quality of meat diminish even further.

Huh? 10lbs of meat is almost 13,000 kcals! What exactly are you doing?

I am not going to video record myself eating every meal for one day, 10lbs of meat over the the course of a day, and post the video on YouTube. I have security concerns.

In reference to my previous post, I baked a 24lb turkey on a Sunday. By the end of my first meal Tuesday morning, breakfast, I finished off that bad boy. I don't know how much weight of a 24lb turkey is bones.
