When we first went paleo, it was a real struggle. It wasn’t just the cleaning out of the house and changing the way we ate. That was the easy part. It mostly, at least for me, was realizing that what I’d been taught my entire life was a lie. Not only had our government misled us, but so had science. If you read Cordain’s, The Paleo Answer, you’ll find all the references to why we should not be eating dairy, whole grains, legumes, etc. To top it off, it’s not just that it would be better for us not to, but there is evidence that illustrates why we shouldn’t and other evidence (fat argument) that shows how we’ve been purposely misled because of a personal agenda. The fat argument has come to light again recently in articles such as The Questionable Link Between Saturated Fat and Heart Disease.
