JS. This is great and validates my many beliefs on food and how we should eat. Im a Chef by trade and one who cares a lot about health and using good quality products.

I only heard about the Paleo movement 2 years ago and only started reading into it recently.

I've always been healthy and ate well all my life. But I have had extreme weight fluctuations from living in different countries and having to change my diet from one extreme to another.
Also coming from a multicultural back ground (Asian/European) Im exposed to all kinds of food and ways of eating. But through experimenting on my self. I've found what you've written is the best way. For me at least. Although I dont agree with completely cutting out dairy or nuts.

I'll give an example. There was a period where I was living in Thailand. During this time I was researching a lot about food and various styles of eating. I concluded on my own that eating like early humans would be the best answer. After seeing a few BBC docos about what early humans ate as well as reading Harolds Mcgees books. So I cut out almost all possessed foods. No sugar. Very little possessed carbs. I did eat lots of nuts though. My diet was basically 70% fruit and veg. 20% good quality beef or fish. 5% grains. 5% dairy. I also worked out 2 hours a day 6 days a week (intervel training).
I would have an 'off day' where I'd break all the rules i set for myself and eat ALL THE THINGS and put myself in a food coma (based on the idea that when food is plentiful predators will gouge themselves). But eventually I stopped that anyway because I completely lost my cravings for sugary possessed foods. Coke started tasting disgusting. I lost 10kg in 3 weeks. Didn't put on much muscle but was noticeably 'ripped' and felt like I was on cocaine all day everyday.
I maintained this for about a year. Then I moved to London and could no longer sustain the strict regime. Due to economics and a heavy work schedule. Started eating a lot of bread. All the old cravings for sugary things came back. 4 years later I put on nearly 30kgs of fat. Very unhealthy. No energy, mood swings, ready to give up on life.

Shit this long. sorry.

Anyway. Next point. Here is why I love this page. I moved back to Thailand 2 years ago. Got a decent job and finally had time on my hands to do something about my health. This time I didnt want to spend 2 hours in the gym or have to be a nazi about what I put in my body. All I did.
1. Eat as little sugar as I can (I havnt cut it out completely)
2. Eat about 50/50 good quality meat and veg. (like you mention) I wasnt concerned about grain fed or frass fed. (as a chef whos worked in a steak house I know grain fed taste better) Kobe for example.
3. Limit bread consumption (again I didnt cut it out completely)
4. Do a burst style work out (like you mentioned) I do push ups every night. Hard and fast. Takes about 10mins

Managed to lose 25kg over a period of 6 months. And have a decent figure. Im not as full of energy as I was before or as muscular but how I look and feel now isnt bad for something that really doesn't require much effort.

Im considering following your guide more strictly to see what happens and will surely post the results!

Although this is several years later, I've just read your article. I was actually googling "what proteins to eat for breakfast when you're allergic to eggs and can't afford bacon". Lol. I am someone who thought I was doing the best for our family of 6 with "healthy whole grains". Half of us are allergic to eggs. The rest don't care for them. I've been cooking biscuits and etc for so long. I knew we need more protein when we eat breakfast but wasn't sure what to fix. Bacons expensive for this many ppl. And I thought my husband was wrong for not eating many mornings. This is a real eye opener and as I get older(well 32 now), I've started to question a lot of things we do "in tradition" and things that we just go along with as expected. Like Halloween candy and hotdog on the 4th of July and 1$ for tooth fairy. Don't get me wrong, I like the idea of passing down traditions but I'm just questioning where things started and wanting to decide if it's a tradition I believe in. Anyhow, since this is an older article plz email or reply me if there is any important changes since. Thank you.

Aw, this was an exceptionally nice post. Taking the
time and actual effort to create a great article…
but what can I say… I hesitate a whole lot and never
seem to get nearly anything done.

This is an incredibly irresponsible website. People like you who think they know about healthy eating is causing heart disease and diabetes. Shame on you. If you actually examined the research you'll find that plant-based eating is the healthiest diet for humans. And did you inform your readers that processed red meat was named a class 1 carcinogen by WHO? Yes, processed red meats CAUSE CANCER. shame.

"Fat people are no longer disgusting: they’re delicious." WTF is the author even trying to say. Being fat is disgusting and unhealthy, period.

Great stuff, but it's a bit distressing to see you mention tea, coffee, mate, and (in the comments) alcohol as acceptable parts of one's diet.

Isn't this all about being strong and free? What kind of predator is a slave? And that's exactly what you become when you take addictive substances: a slave to an addiction. When your health improves and your strength increases, you won't feel the depressive tendencies that drive people to crave addictive drugs anyway, so it's best to steer clear of them from the beginning.

Hello there.
I kind of disagree with your stance on Cardio. I highly doubt that our ancestors outsprinted their pray like a lion or cheetah, but rather outlasted them in long distance running. Prey animals usually cannot pant while sprinting, so they eventually overheat and collapse - whereas humans happily sweat away while tracking the animal in kind of a steady state run.
