You're either eating like our ancestors, or you're not. If you're not, then stop trying to sell the whole paleo ancestral heritage mantra.

Nail heads have met their hammers.

But more generally, it's impossible to "eat paleo" because everything we eat now is different than it was a million years ago. We've bred cows differently. Our vegetables are DRASTICALLY different. And then on top of it, most paleo dieters make exceptions. It's irritating when someone says "I'm eating paleo, except on the weekends when I'll eat some cake." Well, you aren't ****ing eating Paleo, are you? You should eat food because you like it and because it does something good for you, which, granted, a lot of Paleo food does. But a lot of non-Paleo food is just fine, too. I actually eat mostly Paleo, but it's because they are foods I enjoy and those foods are good for me. But I don't say "I'm eating Paleo." I eat a lot of non-Paleo shit. That doesn't mean it's bad. /end rant
