Occasionally, a paleohacker will pipe up with this particular diet variant:
"I don't eat a set diet. Some days, I'll pretty much just eat meat. Some days I'll have no meat and a bunch of fruit and nuts. Other days, I'll eat typical paleo meals. Or I'll eat a bunch of tubers and butter. Sometimes I'll fast, occasionally I'll gorge."
The above quote is fictionalized, but I've seen this type of thing several times. In theory, I like the way it sounds. It also mirrors what I would think a hunter-gatherer would eat (large amounts of whatever is available). Eating randomly provides a less steady influx of nutrients, which could possibly affect aging (MTOR?) It's also kinda kooky, which would help separate you from your normal-eating friends even more than regular paleo would.
On the other hand, this way of eating seems difficult in certain aspects. Like planning meals, satisfying cravings, eating with others, etc.
Does anyone eat like this, sporadically or regularly? What are the different names that this "diet" goes by? Has anyone seen tangible benefits from this way of eating?
