One of the biggest arguments for the paleo diet is that humans are genetically the same for about 2 million years and lived off that same diet. Evolution takes a very very long time. For over 90 percent of that time Humans lived in a TROPICAL climate with fruit year round. Humans didnt leave Africa until about 50k years ago.
I dont understand how you can call yourself paleo and not eat fruit, which was one of the main parts of our ancestors diet.
Sometimes I feel like more people are trying to cram fruit down my throat than otherwise. It's like fruit and protein shakes are things people just can't let go of and they get really crabby at those who do let go of them. So to try to see if I was really missing something I've eaten a lot more fruit the past few weeks. I've suddenly ballooned in belly fat around my waist and my upper arms. I think I'll go back to eating stricter paleo. Thanks but I'll pass on the fruit for now.
