  • Firstly, it takes away things people really like. Doughnuts and lattes and whatnot. Second, a lot of Popular-Paleo (and associated hanger's on) are basically one large, writhing Appeal to Nature Fallacy. Thirdly, it's relatively expensive and most people who "get in on it" are mostly yuppie types anyways.

    At least, that appears to be what I take from the criticism, in a pop-culture perspective.

      My thought on this one is that too many people don't actually understand what this fallacy really is. Paleo is not and appeal to nature, its an appeal to evolutionary biology.

      • It's really difficult for someone to listen to someone with any insight who criticizes the paleo diet when they can't even get the actual definition of it right.

        • Nothing to see here, just a bunch of strawman arguments and mischaracterizations of paleo principles.
