Do you think this infographic is right on?

I think this infographic does a nice job of summarizing the paleo diet and is worth sharing with newbies.

What do you think of it? Accurate? Anything missing?

Don't care for the "lean" meats.

so should we grade it for it's content or it's quality? As an infographic I think it;s pretty low quality. As far as the content, I agree with Dan, better than most that I have seen.

Although, attributing early death statistics in part to lack of adequate shelter (rather than infant mortality), perhaps that IS what they are actually asserting.

I suspect the author meant invention of "agriculture" not "architecture". Hoping that was a typo and not a misunderstanding of the history of human shelter.

Though I agree with you on these points, this is the most easily digestible (no pun intended) bunch of paleo info I've seen on the net yet.

Yeah but there isn't a Macro ratio that paleo recommends.

also it would be cool to see a typical paleo breakdown % of fats, protein & carbs typically consumed VS the % that the usda recommends.

Overall, it's pretty good, but what's with the chicken leg in the "avoid" column? Maybe they're assuming no domesticated poultry...I dunno.

Also, considering how many Paleo people eat sweet potatoes, yams, and other tubers, "starch" in the avoid column is also suspect. They should have just let "grains" speak for itself. We don't avoid starch/carbohydrate, just grains. (Let's not get into the rice issue here.)

One little typo - architecture instead of agriculture, but I wouldn't have even caught that if I hadn't seen it in one of the comments.

Not too bad, though. I agree with CD on some of the graphics...a little misleading. As a basic intro, you could do a lot worse.

IMO that is a pretty crappy infographic. I won't go into all of the issues, but one of the big ideas on infographics is how well the icons represent their meaning. These icons are crappy.

  • "Stored Fat" is a cupcake. That's ridiculous, fat is our primary fuel, we don't want people thinking a cupcake is our primary fuel.
  • "More Efficient Workouts" is a half drained battery. What the hell does a half drained battery have to do with efficiency?
  • Anti-Inflammatory is medicine? NO NO NO NO NO the diet is anti-inflammatory (that's not the right term, but we will go with it) not some medication that is taken.

    Seems like a nice high level overview, I think that CD can't see the forest through the trees.

    Love it, thanks for the share :)

    It's taken 10,000 years but the paleo diet is making a comeback.

    Hahaha!

    Plus bacon is not a "lean" meat, and we know plenty of paleo's eat that. And red wine doesn't have to be in the avoid box. I mean they should put a grain alcohol in the avoid section. Makes it look kinda like we're all goody-two-shoes that don't eat fatty meats or drink any alcohol. Sorta misleading.

    Awesome graphic! Really well done. Did you do this yourself?

    The only thing I wasn't a huge fan of was that you just listed lean meats. You may consider specifying grass fed beef or grass fed meats. Grass fed meats are generally more lean that corn fed meats, but they are by no means low on saturated fat. I think one of the biggest parts of going paleo is realizing that red meat is not the enemy.
