RE: My paleo homefries.
Paleo only specifies roots and fowl and meat etc.

You don't have to go and live like they did, you just eat the TYPES of items they ate, as that is what you have evolved to eat for a very long time, and thus it is assumed to be best for your body.

It does make sense, it's certainly healthier than Kraft mac and cheese or just about everything that comes out of a box.

I wish I could give you another point for such an excellent comment.

The only common thread I can find is a distaste for cereals.

And even that's a stretch.

The types of things they ate back then were not domesticated species.
(except dogs - they get a pass on eating dogs!)

The types of things they ate back then were anything they could get their hands on. It's a sort of continuum fallacy at best and nonsensical magical thinking at worst.

"Eat fewer processed foods, and eat a greater variety of foods" is the advice literally every dietician will give you.

This is true, but I have heared dieticians say oatmeal is good, and I feel better without oatmeal. But it could be because I have not eaten it in forever.

That's because it's not the dieticians who'll tell you "all cereals are bad"; that's the quack paleo advocates!

Yeah but so far the quacks seem to be working better for me.

Frying requires metal cookware. Paleolithic is literally by definition pre-metallurgical.

Notwithstanding that any and all domesticated species are out too, of course - chicken? almond? peppers?

What would you call it then?

Fried chicken.

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.

Sounds like good food more than a name for it.

The TYPES of things they ate were meat (any meat they could get), fish, fowl, roots, berries, fruit, veggies and whatever they could find.

Personally, I don't follow paleo, but I do eat real food as opposed to processed food that is full of chemicals which we did not evolve to process.

Eating what your body spent a zillion years evolving to process is just common sense. Avoiding stuff we are not designed to eat probably saves me from a lot of health issues caused by improperly and insufficiently researched and tested ingredients used in just about everything these days.

And yes, any sane person will advise you to eat real food. That is basically what paleo is about. You would be surprised how many people don't ever eat real food, convenience foods are so much more - erm - convenient.

I eat cheese and grains however. I eat everything i can find that is not processed and has no chemicals or sugar added. And I am not religious about it, it's just my everyday base diet.

I think paleo takes it a couple of steps too far, but compared to most of the diets people will follow to lose weight and such, paleo is a great diet.
