Some prominent paleos, such as Art DeVany, Erwan Le Corre, and Nassim Taleb have written about the importance of randomness in diet and exercise. As I understand it, it's about making our bodies more robustly fit, and to some extent it insures us against the perils of our ignorance- a la Michael Polan's nutritionism argument.
Certainly paleolithic man lived in an extrememly dynamic environment, with an enormous variety of physical abilities necessary for his survival, and with an enourmous variety of food available at different times of the year.
We tend to make everything neat- weights that you lift just so, routines you're supposed to follow every time, a clear set of nutitrional requirements that we're supposed to meet with every meal. It seems like we're missing something.
What are your experiences with regularity, and with greater randomness? For me, not sticking to closely to any rigid guidelines is very liberating- though I am quite strict about avoiding bad foods.
I'm interested in your thoughts!
