What shall we call people who don't eat the paleo diet?

Similar to how non-magic folk are referred to as "muggles" in the Harry Potter books, what should we call non-paleo folk?

Or, it only takes a half-dozen muscles to reach out and "dope-slap" someone upside the head.

Yep, I call 'em my family and friends and I don't think any less of them (and I hope they don't think any less of me.)

Or, as the old email went: It takes 37 muscles to frown. And 22 muscles to smile. And not giving a \*\*\*\* uses no muscles at all.

Unless your perfect, you shouldn't be calling anyone anything.

I used to be there as well! thought raw was the way to go with "protein" from plant sources... Results speak volumes though and paleo definitely brings them to the table. You catch more flies with honey

Let's just call them friends. Each of us - unless we were born to nutritionally enlightened parents - came to a paleo diet from another way of life. Heaven knows I've done and ate it all, from SAD to vegetarian to vegan to raw foods, finally settling on paleo as the right fit. My personal results speak for themselves, and I've found myself helping others into a paleo diet or at least exploring the possibilities because of my willingness to start at the beginning, to tell my story.

Since we all start somewhere, let's meet those not on our path (yet!) with kindness.

Just as the Genghis Khan did, we should refer to our grain-eating neighbors of weak body and mind as "cattle."1

"I was talking to a group of NADS today and they tried to convince me I will die when im 33 because that is when cavemen died."

This question needs context. Westin A. Price recommendations aren't paleo but to call them neolithic might be a stretch. Ancestral Fitness and Diet is a big umbrella.
