PALEO is a swear word

I am sick of the word PALEO, and so are my family and friends.... Can we call it something else, or just say I eat this way? Buy the way, I just finished some andy kapp hot fries and some excellent german beer.... I am a strict S.O.B. during the week, but I let my make believe hair down during the weekend. I will admit this, when I eat following the guidelines I feel 100%, and when the weekend hits I fell say 65%...

I goggled F*@k Paleo, and there were lots of hits.

People are calling it a fad diet, and so-forth, but I tell you I feel great when eating this way.

I have no adverse reactions such a ciliac disease or anything medically pronounced when eating a SAD diet, so I indulge.

White Castle is proof of that prior to going into work last night, but truly I really like eating PALEO. It hands down just makes me feel better.

I am like any other junkie out there... I love my gummy worms, my reeces, and any other junk food. Oh and I love BEER!

I guess for me its about something that is sustainable.

I have to go to bed now, and tomorrow is back to being strict, at least until Friday evening when the gates of hell open again.

MathGirl, I have. And various arguments could be made regrading them; the strongest perhaps involves the thread being overly subjective and argumentative'. Even then whether this is overly so is open to intepreation - mine is that this thread did not warrant being closed. It is clearly a question, albeit similar to one that has been asked before as April S noted. As per FAQs: 'If you end up asking a question that has been asked before, that is OK and deliberately allowed. Other users will hopefully edit in links to related or similar questions to help future visitors find their way.'

Michael, read the FAQs. This is not a question.

There are heaps of questions perennially asked on here that have been asked many times before... What warrants this one of those many being closed? Yes it is similar, so are very many others.

@Michael Something similar to this has been asked before by Patrick: http://paleohacks.com/questions/1057/other-names-for-paleolithic-diet#axzz2LECJMIuA

This is not a stupid question. However, it is a poorly written, poorly thought out post.

The question is 'can we call it ('paleo) something else'? Given that there stigma often associated with he paleo term, it's not an unreasonable question to ask. It's not like it hasn't been canvassed by others in people in the 'movement' who use the term 'ancestral' increasingly... @ April S and Eric: How exactly is this site benefited from you closing this question?

I'm not sure if this is really a question. but if you feel great by being strict in the weekdays and 'cheat' in the weekend please go ahead.
