The Premise of Paleo

Answered on August 19, 2014
Created June 01, 2011 at 9:53 PM

In his book "Food and western disease : health and nutrition from an evolutionary perspective," Staffan Lindeberg, Paleo advocate and Kitava study researcher, states the rationale/premise of the Paleo diet:

"...Humans, as is the case with other animal species, are genetically best suited to the types of food that were available in the ecological niche where they developed."

What proof does this premise rest upon?

Sourced references appreciated.

This is an assumption made on paleo man from the fossil record. Its good but not definitive.

Agreed. What does the reference section of the book say?

Um...I haven't read the book, but isn't doesn't it provide lots of the evidence in support of that assertion all by itself?
