I'm thinking of starting to use pseudoephedrine to give me more energy throughout the day, although I am aware the a paleolithic man never used any sort of medication, it's not food. What do you guys think? Thanks :)

One of the main claims revolving around the paleo diet is that it is 'unnatural' foods, i.e., foods that are incongruent with our evolutionary past that cause us to eat excessively and become fat. From an evolutionary perspective, the ability to... (more)

Yes, we are optimized to store fat at certain points, that's why you will find plenty of pictures of foraging people with some fat on them, particularly women. But it was often seasonal and not enough fat to be pathological. But if you want to... (more)
