Reading what Cordain has to say versus what Robb Wolf says and other "authorities" have to say it seems that there are a lot of varying forms of Paleo. Which is the true to life life style? I read things on this web site that are opposite of what Robb says such as eating Brown Rice is okay if you soak it in water to remove the phytic acid. Or am I wrong?
Thanks in advance

For the best autoimmune protocol, check Sarah Ballantyne, IMO.

I will have to agree with Cdone. Not much a need for many responses after that excellent post.
I will come out loud and say that i am a 85/15 paleo. I eat low low carbs, no dairy what so ever, and lots of fresh veggies, meat, and some fruit. i cheat on 3/21 meals a week, but recently i have not had a cheat day in 2 weeks. after wheening your self off cheeseburgers, pizza, and pasta, it gets easier to say no to bad foods.
All in all, find a way to make it work for yourself. make adjustments as needed and see it work!

To add to @CDone's answer, there's also Bulletproof - in which you chug tons of bulletproof coffee and avoid all mold like the plague. :)
There's also Art De Vany's New Evolution Diet, which is more about how to work out properly in addition to diet.
There's also the Wahl's Protocol for dealing with Multiple Sclerosis and similar problems, and involves eating tons of veggies - like 9 cups per day, 3 of which are from the sulfur rich kind (cabbage, etc.)

Don't let differences put you off.
Keep it simple. Just eat whole unprocessed foods. That's it. If man made it don't eat it. Simple.
For me my nose runs if I drink milk or have cream so I don't often have those.
Also I don't believe breaking the rule above helps. For many sugar addicts total abstinence is the only thing that works particularly for women so having "cheat days" or sweets in moderation is a ridiculous idea.

There are two types of paleo -- My way, and the wrong way.
Basically there are about 7 groups:
- Elimination -- Paleos with some type of food sensitivity which recommending eliminating any potential toxin and then reintroducing (note I add Whole 30, GAPS, and FODMAPS to this group)
- Low-Carb Paleo -- Cordain, to a lesser extent Wolf. Stay below 50-75g of carbs per day.
- High-Carb Paleo -- Paleo is about eating whole foods -- macronutrients play a small part -- just eat whole foods.
- Primal -- Mark Sisson's personal brand. Basically 100-150g carbs, and dairy is ok as long as you tolerate it. He does a better job => http://www.marksdailyapple.com/whats-the-difference-between-primal-and-paleo/#axzz2w3jdpM4q
- PHD -- Paul Jaminet's brand, sometimes called the safe starch paleo, but that is a terrible over-simplification. Paul's answer here: http://paleohacks.com/questions/182700/difference-between-traditional-paleo-and-phd.html
- Weston Price -- Not paleo, but lots of overlaps: http://www.westonaprice.org/basics/dietary-guidelines
- Mexi-Paleo (paleo except you get to eat corn tortillas) -- Population: @Matt 11
Then within each group there are several factions, primarily:
- The, "I'm more hard-core than you guy"
- The, "80/20? so I can eat ice cream and pizza two days a week" guy
- The, "I have a sever auto-immune condition so everyone should eliminate everything that I did" guy
- The, "I eat 10,000 calories and am ripped with abs and it has nothing to do with genetics" guy
- The, "This is true I read it on [insert paleo guru's blog] and he linked to pubmed" guy
- The, "I can calculate my form of paleo to 10 decimal places" guy
- The, "There are two types of paleo -- My way, and the wrong way." guy
