My first introduction to paleo was through the work of Loren Cordain, who from what I remember advocated eating as much fruit as one liked as part of a plaeo diet, instead of grains or tubers. I'm guessing that wasn't the most popular idea, because the paleo resources I read online (like paleohacks) never seem to mention that approach. I'm going to go ahead and just try it myself, because I want to see if removing grains helps my digestive system work better. I don't really like the taste of potatoes and sweet potatoes, and my body doesn't seem to react very well to lc and vlc diets, so eating plenty of fruit seems like a reasonable choice.
My question is whether anyone out there has had experience with this fruit heavy variant of paleo, and if so how did it work out? What problems did it solve for you? What problems did it create? I'm looking for personal experiences from people who have actually tried it. My own health goals are to have more consistent energy, more balanced mood, and a better working digestive system. At the end of the day my decision to stick with this diet or not will be based on how it affects me personally, but if there is anyone out there who has tried using fruit as their main source of carbs and who has any advice, encouragements, or warnings for me then I'd really appreciate it.
