Thanks for your complicated nutritional calculations. You are
absolutely correct, and I agree with your analysis.
To be clearer: I am not denying that Paleos ate meat, vegetables and
fruit. You are absolutely correct that grains couldn't fulfill most of
the diet. I am merely arguing that neopaleos shouldn't avoid whole
grains based on a mistaken believe that early paleos didn't eat grain.
They also ate legumes. They also cooked them. And even though I am
personally vegetarian, there is no doubt that Paleos ate meat. Claims
to the contrary have no historical basis.
My personal diet does not fit the common definition of low-fat or
high-fat, because it's low-saturated-fat with high-monounsaturated-fat.
My personal diet does not fit the common definition of low-carb or
high-carb, because it's low-sugar with high-complex-carbs. My personal
diet is vegetarian, but it is not low-protein.
