Now, you might think this TED talk by Christina Warriner, ‘Debunking the Paleo Diet’ goes against what we’re practicing at ‘Dia-Beat This!’?
Weeeell …. no. This is instead a rather elegant, mildly academic dig at some of the over-simplifications and misunderstandings over so-called Stone Age diets.
If you’re less interested in the true shape of our ancestors’ diets and the husbandry of modern vegetables (which I think is interesting but hey), then move it forward to around 17’00 in and check the conclusion.
In short, no, it’s impossible to eat a truly Paleo diet BUT it does seem that a wise person eats plenty of veg, avoids too many preservatives and, of course, avoids our old enemy sugar, as there’s no way we could be adapted to a diet including much of that.
