Has a Paleo guru ever given you advise that you ended up following and eventually came to the conclusion that in the end it was bad advice?
I never asked a paleo guru for advice. I doubt many have.
EDIT: It's been called to my attention that I'm getting a little snarky 'round here. Mea culpa, I'll tone it down! I think that I do not like the notion of "paleo gurus,"--but that's my problem!
Okay, I'll bite. I was quite low carb, but after reading Jaminet's Perfect Health Diet I added some sweet potato into the mix, even though I don't really exercise enough to need it. It stoked my hunger, so now I'm back to lower carb than he recommends.
Which doesn't at all mean it was bad advise. For all I know it's better to eat some extra carb, all other things being equal. For my particular issues, all other things weren't equal.
I started my Paleo journey 7 months ago by reading start guide at gnolls.org. I guess you wikk find the best start guide over there. Then I moved to marksdailyapple.com. Mark is superb, he is always up to date and has answer to almost every newbie question.
Have I followed someone's (considered knowledgeable in the field) suggestions as to how to eat? Sure...sometimes it worked, sometimes it didn't. It is truly an individual sport. I have decided to listen to my instinct while following the main components of ancestral eating and don't worry about the other stuff. Are you having problems with a certain program?
