I am always slightly perturbed by the branding of what we do as "Paleo"... Cards on the table, I am a Christian...BUT I don't want to get into a creation/evolution/intelligent design kind of discussion here - that's not the point of the question. (I realise this appeal will likely be in vain, as the raising of the topic seems to inexorably attract people like a moth to a flame...but let the crowd decide!)
My point is this: I eat the way I do because I think it is the best for my body. In determining what I'm going to eat, it doesn't matter (to me) whether I evolved such that this way of eating is best for me, or if I was created in such a way. The science TODAY shows that it is best for me and that's why I do it. It's best for me NOW. I don't particularly care what was best for my Paleolithic ancestors. I don't care whether it has changed in the last x thousand years or not.
Some criticism is levelled at us all (illogical and poorly argued as it sometimes is) that we do not know what our ancestors ate, that different hunter gatherer tribes had very different eating habits, that we are trying to recreate the caveman experience in vain etc etc. And I wonder if the "Paleo" branding is at least partly to blame...
What do you think? Is the association with the past undermining the argument about what is good for us RIGHT NOW?
