it was ok

It could have been a pamphlet.

At no point is the paleo diet ever discussed in any detail, or any reasons provided why it's a logical, or even sensical choice. This one's like an arbitrary rulebook that makes vague, buzzwordy reference to things like "blood sugar" and "bad cholesterol" and expecting you to take that at face value, then condemning milk and beans without making any sort of explanation for why that isn't on paleo.

And then, the "recipes".

Cook a fish! And some vegetables! Delicious fish and vegetables, serves 4.

Craving steak? Grill a steak! And some vegetables! You won't go back to eating anything other than meat and vegetables after you try THIS paleo classic!

Do you miss pancakes? Smash a bunch of bananas and eggs together! That's "batter", now. Just fry it up in olive oil because butter is dairy! Whatever! Just like the cavemen!

On some dumb.

Two stars because it made me hungry for trail mix, so I made my own trail mix, which rules.
