30 Bananas a Day!

I was just reading a McDougall newsletter from August when this statement about paleo hit me... for some reason this had never occurred to me before.  Interesting ;) 

The statement: 

Recently Don Matesz published aninformative critique of the Paleo diet as a measure for weight loss. Notably Matesz mentions:

Consequently, any Paleolithic humans who engaged in nutritionally motivated hunting would have done so in order to increase their food energy intake in order to maintain or gain weight, not in order to achieve weight loss… In view of this, the "Paleo diet" theory that overfed sedentary modern humans who need to lose excess adipose should regularly eat the fatty flesh and eggs found in supermarkets because active, underfed, extremely lean prehistoric people who struggled to meet their basic kcaloric needs ate lean game flesh or eggs whenever possible lacks basic credibility.

Here's the newsletter:

LOL

LOL Dude! Says it all.

People wanting to get lean should emulate the food choices of people wanting to get fat?  

Only after this is stated, can they finally admit it's a starvation diet. But as we all know... Meat eaters would literally rather starve than eat only plants..
