People criticize paleo for a lot of reasons. What tenets do people bash the most, or most frustratingly, in your experience?

Goths, like myself (an older Goth, not vegetarian), tend to mostly be vegetarian/vegan. We despise hippies, and love bloodsuckers, so why do you think Paleo isn't attractive to Goths?

In relation to O6:O3 ratios, 20g of chia seed will provide about 3g of plant based omega 3. If you're feeling good on it and its agreeable with your gut flora, more power to you.
