Naz at cinnamoneats.com provides a nice summary of a documentary that I just finished watching called “In Search Of The Perfect Human Diet”, highlighting the archaeological science which basically identifies the best diet for human beings as being a Palaeolithic Diet.
Some of my favourite quotes from the documentary:
“I didn’t invent this diet. All we did is we uncovered what was already there. We uncovered the diet that all human beings ate on this planet until 10,000 years ago, so we did detective work in finding out what that diet is, but don’t attribute this diet to me”.
– Loren Cordain, Author of The Paleo Diet, Professor of Health & Exercise Science, Colorado State University.
“If this is a fad diet then it is a 2 million year old fad.”
– Dr. Boyd Eaton, M.D.
