Sounds pretty much like what I would call a balanced diet.
Meat, veg, grain and fruit. What's not to like?
Though paleos probably had to exercise a lot more than modern man to get it.
Compare their lifestyle with driving the SUV to the supermarket.
And they probably had to survive on a lot less than modern man, with
intermittent fasting / starvation.
