Paleo Gurus and their advice?

Answered on August 19, 2014

Has a Paleo guru ever given you advise that you ended up following and eventually came to the conclusion that in the end it was bad advice?

Snarky is good, but keep it on topic.

I like Mark's Daily Apple just for that reason, he addresses things most people wonder about, weekly.

All the recent advise to eat lots of fruit and starch and all the nonsense about sugar being good for you and insulin not being related to fat storage is advice that has not worked for me, either.

Kurt Harris would be prime guru material - but, alas, he appears to have left the building.

Well...among gurettes, Minger's awesome of course, and yes, Melissa's not a bad kid. When she gets her stuff straight I think she'll be quite formidable. Amy Dungan's fat and Nora Gedgaudas should be doing infomercials. Emily Deans needs to lighten up. That's about it...

I don't mean to be rude, but this sounds like an awfully unhelpful answer.

I never asked a paleo guru for advice. I doubt many have.

EDIT: It's been called to my attention that I'm getting a little snarky 'round here. Mea culpa, I'll tone it down! I think that I do not like the notion of "paleo gurus,"--but that's my problem!

Okay, I'll bite. I was quite low carb, but after reading Jaminet's Perfect Health Diet I added some sweet potato into the mix, even though I don't really exercise enough to need it. It stoked my hunger, so now I'm back to lower carb than he recommends.

Which doesn't at all mean it was bad advise. For all I know it's better to eat some extra carb, all other things being equal. For my particular issues, all other things weren't equal.

I started my Paleo journey 7 months ago by reading start guide at gnolls.org. I guess you wikk find the best start guide over there. Then I moved to marksdailyapple.com. Mark is superb, he is always up to date and has answer to almost every newbie question.

Have I followed someone's (considered knowledgeable in the field) suggestions as to how to eat? Sure...sometimes it worked, sometimes it didn't. It is truly an individual sport. I have decided to listen to my instinct while following the main components of ancestral eating and don't worry about the other stuff. Are you having problems with a certain program?

Jimmy Moore is the only paleo guru you need. Any more than him and you're pressing your luck.
