Melanie Gores a Few Oxen

Australian Aborigine

Dietitian Melanie Thomassian at Dietriffic offers some iconoclastic ideas in her critique of the paleo diet (aka Paleolithic, Old Stone Age, caveman, or hunter-gatherer diet).  Some quotes:

I’ll be the first to admit the diet recommended by most mainstream nutritionists, dietitians, and doctors is pretty terrible, and believe it or not, I do understand why people look elsewhere for their dietary advice.


The philosophy and reasoning behind the whole Paleo diet, however, isn’t something I can reconcile myself to.

Melanie addresses legumes, dairy, grains, and the problem of determining prehistoric diets.
