So I learned a new word on Sunday. Apparantly, it's what I am.
Or more specifically, I appear to be on the Paleo Diet.
It appears to be all meats, fish, and vegetables. The thought behind it, I think, is that in the Paleolithic era, the happy paleoandrathals had no wheat or grains in their diet.
So the populist thinking goes. They also had no sugars, but we all choos to conveniently forget about that.
Out on a limb here, but they probably didn't have cancer, arthritis, kidney stones or thousands of other maladies that are today associated with eating wheat. I made the kidney stones part up, but have been told by various medical people that the other two are results of eating bread).
Personally, I'm not even sure if paleoandrathals is even a word. I'll have to see if the scrabble dictionary in Words with Friends allows it.
From the Urban Dictionary:
Paleotarian – A person who follows a paleolithic nutrition plan or eats a paleo/primal diet. Characterized by eating fresh fruits, vegetables, lean meats and rejecting gluten, grains, legumes, dairy, starchy vegetables, excessive carbohydrates and processed foods.
