What's the most radical adaptation/deviation you've made to the Paleo diet?

One of the dangers of following any diet is becoming dogmatic, developing tunnel vision and, as a result, failing to adapt the diet to your own needs (bio-individuality). What alterations/adaptations to the Paleo diet have you made and why?

I was gonna ask you if your orthostatic hypotension thing or whatever it was that made you faint that one time occurred while you were a veg*n or since you've been paleo.

Thank you for writing that, so I don't have to. In my opinion, once you figure out what works for you, satiety, pleasure, and health should be pretty much all you need as a guide.

Not at all. I think Kurt stops to early.....that is my real issue. Inthink paleo 2.0 wontngo far enough. Paleo hacks does not have a lot of older hacks.....I seenanton of them and the paleo story evovles with them. A 25 yr is not the same as an 55!yr old hacker. Context. I wonder why you jumped to the conclusion you did though. Maybe you could shed some light upon that. I don't believe in group think.....I believe discourse leads to further frontiers. Just my two cents here.

I'll have to find the post where "Dr K" is essentially paving the way for "Paleo 3.0" and he referenced a post by Mark Sisson. I remember it only because I was laughing at the absurdity of it. My take-away from seeing your posts over the last couple months, Dr K, is that you seem to have an issue with Dr Harris. Blog envy?

No SA.....parts of it are ok.....but parts of it are dead wrong. I have a problem with the dead wrong part......we must follow the science and where it leads and not say well just eat the correct foods.

You say you don't follow 2.0, yet 2.0 is about what you describe, science over history...???

I also would like for you to elaborate. For example, what are the "15-18 pathways of aging or longevity"? Thanks.

Be specific, Doc. Exactly how does your approach manifest itself?

I don't buy any paleo 2.0 things. I believe that optimization is always better than a dogmatism stance. I believe like Peter Drucker said in his business books if you can measure it you can manage it. That is how I treat my myself, my family, and now my patients. The science of mitochondrial signaling and DNA transcription clearly point to epigenetic modification being highly valued. Now the key It to discover what foods,diet and supplementation with hormonal optimization matter most as the human ages along the 15-18 pathways of aging or longevity. That is my Paleo modification. Science always trumps beliefs or rationale. This movement was based upon scientists who looked back our evolutionary history and made valuable observations. Thinking that living only in the past makes no sense to me considering how the human mind has evovled the last 100000 years

I don't have any rules or big rebellions. I know the general idea, I know many deeper details (but far from all that are necessary). I don't count any 80/20, I don't count calories, carbs nor protein (even though I got a bit worried after one thread, that I eat much too much). I eat what I feel like, and if I feel that I am straying a bit too much, I make myself get back on track. I drink coffee, this time with heavy cream and butter. sometimes black. Sometimes I will eat a whole bar of chocolate or grapefruit. I will do fasting out of laziness (so no lunch) and not because I planned it. I have it random. The diet should work for me and with me, not the other way around.

I have a genetic variation that means I excrete sodium at above the normal level, so I have to eat a diet with ample added salt.

Who knows what genetic variations we all have? Until we develop the technology to know them all and cheap testing, individual trial is the only way.

I eat 90% of my food at night. Meal frequency is a product sold by big business and is generally a big lie.

at present:

Cacao; rare but Occasional black bread or pumpernickel; unsweetened bitter or baker's chocolate; and smoothies with unsweetened almond milk, flax seed, cashew butter, blue/black/strawberries, apple cider vinegar, 1/4 tsp organic vanilla extract, tsp virgin coconut oil, seltzer, and usually a scoop of Amazing Grass Superfood, ice (or I freeze the berries the night prior).
