A paleo score would allow for many interesting applications. Imagine how easy it would become for people to see whether they're eating is nowhere Paleo or not

LaLonde's talk didn't include the full nutrient spectrum from USDA, unfortunately - he decided the level of detail would make his project take much much longer to complete.

Any time you make a multidimensional world into a 1-dimensional value, you have to add a layer of arbitrary choices to it, and not everyone would make the same choices. I know that Mat Lalaonde did something like this for his AHS talk where he made a "nutritional score" for all foods. And I'm sure he had reasons for all of his weightings when trying to combine hundreds of nutrients for thousands of foods to make a simple single score, but it's still arbitrary.

I'm wondering if anyone has access to his list. I've tried looking for it and can't find it on the net. Or maybe I'm not looking in the right spot!

I've seen a few things out there.

But as mentioned in the film In Search of the Perfect Human Diet, it's either food or not food. We can get into the nitty-gritty of that, and lawd knows we do, but once you've been doing this for a while, it seems pretty simple.

At AHS12, Mat LaLonde broke it all down by nutrient-density, because—surprise! surprise!—it's never been done before. That talk should be available in a few months.
