Haters gotta hate.
I find it a little amusing that the writer gets all up in arms about his Omega 6's, then goes on to claim that the only meat he now eats is poultry.
actually; almost everything I have seen emphasizes the use of grass/pastured beef/meat over grain fed/feedlot- not sure where he was getting his original info from... lesson learned; never use single source documentation. always compare and contrast.
He should have called the post "CavemanForum.com can burn in hell." The paleosphere has touted grass-fed meat over grain ever since I've been into paleo (about 2 years).
His current diet is still paleo:
So to solve my problem, I ended up consuming my current diet of almost nothing but poultry, olive oil and strongly antiinflammatory spices and condiments like garlic, turmeric and apple cider vinegar, and taking cod liver oil on the side (itself a potent antiinflammatory & antiatherogenic agent).
Sounds like much of what he managed to miss by only reading the forum could have been learned by taking a weekend to read The Paleo Solution instead.
Hahaha, it's so hilarious to read this having struggled in the past few years with very very low blood pressure. Maybe I can get some tips from him on how to raise mine. I guess eating massive amounts of omega-6 from garbage CAFO meat would help? Naw, not worth it, my new doctor says as long as I'm not having issues with fainting, my really low blood pressure is great.
First he writes "what this website preached as paleonutrition taught me that the ideal diet is composed of meat, roots, leafy greens and occasionally nuts and seeds. This diet, touted as the most biochemically suitable for human consumption above all others, is what nearly put me in a coffin."
Then, one paragraph later he says "I pretty much lived on nothing but store meat, whipping cream and cod liver oil for most of a year."
I don't think this poor benighted fool can be considered a reliable reporter considering that he doesn't even recognize the difference between these two diets.
It's unfortunate this person had such a bad experience with paleo. I understand his antipathy towards it now, though I will maintain that when you "pretty much live(d) on nothing but store meat, whipping cream and cod liver oil for most of a year" you're not following the paleo diet very well.
