Paleofantasy or Paleofantastic? Interdisciplinary Reconstruction of the Paleolithic Diet


Several anthropologists have stated that there were many Paleolithic diets, presumably questioning the meat/fat centric Paleo practice or the ancestral paradigm altogether.
A review of recent findings relating to the reconstruction of Paleolithic diets from various scientific areas of enquiry will be presented and likely ratios of animal to plant sourced food will be discussed. It will be argued that despite the apparent variability in Paleolithic diets, valid practical dietary guidance can be gained from their study.
