    watched both part of Sunday night on Paleo Diet, it was really interesting.

    http://www.smh.com.au/entertainment...-on-sunday-night-program-20150823-gj5xdg.html


    if we leave politics out of it, the way i see it Pete is just trying to promote

    • healthy eating
    • promoting to eat non-processed food
    • exercise

    Cant understand what's problem with that, and why big hoo-ha ?

    your thoughts?


    p.s i am not supporting such diet or against it!

    Yes a lot of fuss over food. It looked like Mike was a huge coke drinker and at least he has given that up now.

    Yep any healthy eating and exercise would work and lose weight!

    I think not eating grains, legumes etc is a bit full on (which is what the paleo diet says) ie I like a bit of mbread, rice, yoghurt, cheese etc - everything in moderation (including meat lol!)

    My thoughts too.

    Stop drinking tonnes of coke and move your body - you will see benefits!

    Cheers

    Poor coke, i hope the government steps in soon to provide them assistance for the hardship they are facing due to decline of people drinking the black gold. That's how big business works isn't it?? :)

    But with paleo it's like anything the way to get attention or people to change is good old fashioned extreme fear mongering. if he said go 50% paleo and reduce eating the **** in your diet it wouldn't get much attention, and it's been said before.
    I only saw the first ep. We thought it made sense and had been said before under different fads, but same old stuff cut certain things and exercise.
    I won't go full paleo but if you can cut half the stuff paleo doesn't want you to eat you'll have a healthier diet. Then go from there

    On the same line as anyone here seen The Sugar Film? Same sort of conclusion, cut out certain things from your diet and go back raw foods. I recommend the film by the way.

    Paleo is just the latest fad and will die off soon enough when the next fad comes along.

    It's not even a paleo diet. A true paleo diet would have been very high in grains, nuts etc, with small periods when meat was eaten when a hunt was successful.

    And I don't think hunting for a cheap rump steak from a factory produced cow from Colesworth really counts as hunting.

    Grrr me manly man. Rip off plastic cling film.

    Pete Evans is selling pseudo-science to gullible consumers and giving them advice he is unqualified to do in order to make a quick buck. Bone broth for babies that can cause serious illness and even death? Yeah. That's good advice right there.

    Yeah; amazing.

    I always equate what a human should eat to what a human would be able to east if we went back say; 5,000 years ago...or even more.

    There'd be lots of fruit, lots of veges possibly, only water and fruit juice straight from the fruit you could find and eat, and the occasional bit of meat the human might be lucky enough to catch.

    Add to that; the human walked everywhere.

    And there's yer "back to basics" diet suitable for a human.

    In a nutshell; lots of exercise, very little meat, lots of grains, fruit and veg.

    Where do you suppose you'd get lots of grains from 5000 years ago?

    Errrr.... Barley, Millet, and emmer and eikorn wheats (basis of modern wheat) have been a staple for longer than beef or beef hybrids...

    Check out Neolithic Starter Crops. They are not a new thing

    Even Durum and Spelt have been around since 7000-8000BCE.

    And that's leaving aside less common (now) grains such as teff and amaranth. Both of which fate from a similar period.

    And then we have the pulses like lentils etc which have also been around for a very. long. time.

    Ancient man was farming from around 12,000 years ago and agriculture really took off around 5-9,000 years ago ... but before then ... winnowing from wild grasses (precursor to modern grains)

    Good point; maybe they didn't....they may have eaten wheat and rice, etc; but not necessarily cooked?

    Let's go with "no grains".

    So, the revised diet for humans would then be; fruit/nuts etc growing on tress, veges and other items growing out of the ground and easily collected, and the odd bit of meat/insects/eggs, etc...possibly very little dairy as well.

    I'm stuffed then; I eat truckloads of weetbix and milk with a sprinkle of sugar on.

    All of these diets are a load of rubbish!
    Eating good, healthy foods (grains, vegetables, fruit etc.) plus exercise are the ticket. All these diet promoters are simply pushing their own barrow's to make money.
