In their latest blog post, Jenny Sangler discusses the Paleolithic Diet, one of the hottest new trends in weight loss and nutrition.
She discusses an article she found in The Huffington Post, outlining why eating like our ancestors isn’t such a bad idea from a biological standpoint. However, it also claims that the Paleo diet is not all it is cracked up to be.
“Taken too literally, such diets are ridiculous. After all, sometimes our ancestors starved to death and the starving to death diet, well, it ends badly,” Jenny writers, quoting the Huffington Post article directly.
One complaint is that the diet focuses on human’s recent ancestors. In reality, the diet should probably be more focused on those of humans at a point when the digestive system was evolving.
“One of the Paleo diet’s foundations is that our digestive systems adapted from our being primarily hunters who ate meat to primarily farmers who ate crops. Dunn suggests that it may actually be the other way around if you look far enough back into the past,” Jenny adds.
In a light-hearted note, Jenny enjoys the humor within the article. For example, it suggests exploring an era when human’s ancestors ate mostly leaves, twigs, bark and the occasional frog. It was only much later those humans learned to hunt.
Concluding her latest blog post, Jenny states that:
“Personally, I think that the nutritional evidence is clear that the vegetarian diet is the healthiest diet we can eat. If it’s that good for us, then surely we were designed to eat it?”
