It is obviously not genetic since they cannot repopulate. Therefore, it is a neolithic issue, perhaps due to grain consumption. We see it in nature as many animals are also malnourished as most of us now are.

I have just listened to a lecture by Dr. Daphne Miller and now I am starting to doubt Paleo. No, not the whole foods approach. I do not doubt that it is healthy. I doubt the fact that Paleo diet is healthier than other diets. Of course, it is a... (more)

Hi VB, Interesting topic. Dr. Miller makes a lot of good points -- all 10 of those things you list are important factors in health, with the exception of eating seasonally (not much seasonality in the tropics where most human evolution occurred,... (more)

When I go to a giant buffet that serves plenty of quality, nutritious meats and seafood, I like to get my dollars worth and more. At a certain point I can chew but swallowing becomes more of a chore than a pleasure. Are there any techniques that... (more)

I will try to answer as close to the intent of the question poster as possible. Perhaps some of my answer will not be what many here would recommend for usual eating circumstances, but I see this question as a very unusual eating circumstance, and... (more)

In addition to what else has been posted, I'd be curious to see her portion sizes. I'm guessing they aren't what most of us would consider a full meal. I know many girls that eat shitty SADs and they stay thin because they eat about a third of... (more)

I started this as a comment but it grew and grew. :-)) I think Matt's point about ancestral geographic latitude is an important one. Why would I, whose ancestors were all far-northern, thrive on the same mix of foods as someone whose ancestors... (more)

There are cultures who consume a lot of dairy, others consume a lot of tubers. Some go crazy on coconut, but is there any who consume a lot of their calories from eggs? If so, how is their health?

Why did man domesticate grains if it was not already part of his diet? Is it a big deal to eat grains or legumes that are prepared in a traditional way such as soaking and sprouting? Is juicing veggies healthy? Or Necessary
