What you are about to see is idiocy in motion!!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sgjdMHmZ ... AAAAAAAAAw

Seriously. STOP the no carbohydrate Paleo BS people! This is the kind of "expert" selling his 'stuff' that kills people! The man contradicted himself so many times in this video I can't count! People are getting record colon cancer cases because of this idiocy!

Don't eat "sugar". Don't eat "grains" because they turn into "sugar". Eat LOTS of FAT (which you body has to convert into "sugar" though he didn't say that").

But! But! Eat lots of fruit!! < --- ROFL

Next on his little pyramid are "proteins" like "fish, dairy, eggs, etc" I don't remember exactly but you get my drift where he's going.

He says carbs aren't a natural part of our diets, and we could go our "entire lives" (whatever his concept of that is) without them. Then after the 4 min mark or so, he contradicts himself by saying "our brain is telling us to eat carbs".

I just can't...say anymore... :augenroller:

Edit: I know it may look as though I'm preaching to the choir, its just I had to get that off my chest with someone. Thanks for putting up with my rant! :lachmal:

He is pushing lipolysis/gluconeogenesis survival metabolism. What the paleo people used during the paleolithic era.

I feel your frustration.

Yes, there is a lot of misinformation out there. You also find it in vegan circles too. Raw foodists. Fruitarians. Anti-vaccine people. All sorts of other B.S.. That is why I have the URL that I do in my signature. For people who just want to give a vegan diet a try to help animals, help the planet and improve their health. Oddly enough, the truth asks less out of people's lives than some of the crazy diet folklore people choose to believe in over research........and the results can be as nice.

Apparently, we can survive without carbs. And we can survive without ever eating plants. But surviving and living are two different things. I would rather live than just survive.

Our ancestors have been eating carbs, including grains, for many thousands of years. If they were bad for us there wouldn't be 7 milliard humans swamping the world. Most humans have relied on grains for the bulk of their diet for as long as we know about.

Grains and beans do contain 'anti-nutrients' but the processing of those foods - soaking, cooking, sprouting, fermenting - greatly reduces these things. And some anti-nutrients, phytates, could help in protecting the gut against cancer.

The bloke also seems to think there was one diet amongst early humans and mentions gatherer-hunters. But modern gatherer-hunters eat very different diets compared with each other. Some have lots of meat and some have very little meat. It depends on where they live and how available plant foods are. Hunters often exaggerate their hunting prowess, too. It is often the women and children who provide most of the food - plants and invertebrates - even in groups that say they rely more on hunting. Never believe a hunter - or angler - when they talk about how good they are at hunting.

He's not as daft as some of the palaeo idiots out there. The only things I disagree with are his beliefs about the dangers of carbs and his belief that we need to eat animal flesh.
