Has a Paleo guru ever given you advise that you ended up following and eventually came to the conclusion that in the end it was bad advice?

Jimmy Moore is the only paleo guru you need. Any more than him and you're pressing your luck.

Proper fat: grass fed animal fat, pastured butter, coconut oil, some fruit oils like olive and avocado (not sure about Ray Peat's opinion, I agree he is an outlier of the group).
