Die Abschaffung von Getreide und Hülsenfrüchten würden umgekehrt Milliarden Menschen in der Dritten Welt mit dem Hungertod bezahlen. Eine so entvölkerte Welt könnte dann in der Tat dazu in der Lage sein, ohne die Zerstörung der gesamten Umwelt, die noch verbleibenden Menschen zu ernähren.Ohne den Massentod von Menschen in der dritten Welt ist demgegenüber eine weltweite Durchsetzung der Paläö-Ernährung, wenn sie nicht zur kompletten Zerstörung der natürlichen Lebensgrundlagen unseres Planeten und damit von uns allen führen soll, nicht umsetzbar.
Auch die Annahme, dass die Ernährung in der Steinzeit besonders vorteilhaft gewesen sei, steht in der Kritik. Tatsächlich wüssten wir nicht sicher, was die Menschen damals gegessen hätten, betonen Paleo-Skeptiker. Archäologische Analysen geben Hinweise. Doch anders als viele Anhänger der Steinzeit-Ernährung mutmaßen, habe es etwa Eier in weiten Teilen der Welt nur saisonal gegeben. Das Lebensmittelangebot sei wesentlich von den klimatischen Bedingungen geprägt gewesen. Die Obst- und Gemüsesorten, die wir heute essen, seien mit den Exemplaren von vor 10 000 Jahren nicht vergleichbar, sagen Evolutionsbiologen. Insofern habe es nicht eine Steinzeit-Diät gegeben, sondern viele.
„Paleo betrachtet die genetische Entwicklung des Menschen über einen langen Zeitraum, leitet davon Ernährungsempfehlungen ab. Ein guter Ansatz und derzeit sicher das „evolutionärste“ Ernährungskonzept. Aber: Das Argument, der Mensch habe sich in den letzten 10 000 Jahren genetisch nicht weiterentwickelt, wird inzwischen kritisiert und ist nicht haltbar. Paleo schert zudem alle Menschen über einen Kamm – dabei haben wir uns an verschiedenste Klimata und Lebensumgebungen angepasst. Das muss berücksichtigt werden. Da besteht noch Forschungsbedarf.“
Du willst gleich loslegen und spüren, wie gut Paleo deinem Körper tut? Dann nichts wie los! Am besten startest du direkt mit der 30 Tage Challenge – auf unserer Website findest du alle wichtigen Informationen. Wenn du dabei die ein oder andere Hilfestellung benötigst, dann könnte unsere Unterstützung für den Start das Richtige für dich sein. Diese ist aber natürlich keine Voraussetzung um mit Paleo zu starten. Vielleicht ist auch unser erstes Kochbuch für dich interessant – mit einer Einführung in die Paleo Ernährung und 115 leckeren Rezepten. (das zweite Kochbuch ist aber auch ganz gut ;)). Unser E-Mail Support oder der Abnehmen Support unterstützen dich bei deiner persönlichen 30 Tage Challenge.
You can’t go wrong with curried cashews, as cashews are one of the more popular Paleo Nuts, and curry is a Paleo approved spice. They use honey to add a bit of sweetness to these, which only makes them more satisfying because it can hit your craving for sweet as well as savory. The best part is you can make a big batch of these and then divvy them up into smaller containers to use throughout the following week. They also point out that you can make curried pecans instead, if you happen to have pecans on hand and not cashews.

These BLT bites have the T built right in because they’re served up on a cherry tomato. She’s using cream cheese here, which you can sub out Paleo approved cream cheese for and be all set. The B of the BLT is covered with a respectable amount of bacon per bite. The T comes in the form of spinach, so you’re getting a nutritional upgrade from plain old lettuce which doesn’t have nearly as many vitamins and nutrients that spinach has. Dust these with a bit of parmesan cheese, one cheese that most Paleo-ers accept as OK, and you’re good to go.


The data for Cordain's book only came from six contemporary hunter-gatherer groups, mainly living in marginal habitats.[37] One of the studies was on the !Kung, whose diet was recorded for a single month, and one was on the Inuit.[37][38][39] Due to these limitations, the book has been criticized as painting an incomplete picture of the diets of Paleolithic humans.[37] It has been noted that the rationale for the diet does not adequately account for the fact that, due to the pressures of artificial selection, most modern domesticated plants and animals differ drastically from their Paleolithic ancestors; likewise, their nutritional profiles are very different from their ancient counterparts. For example, wild almonds produce potentially fatal levels of cyanide, but this trait has been bred out of domesticated varieties using artificial selection. Many vegetables, such as broccoli, did not exist in the Paleolithic period; broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower, and kale are modern cultivars of the ancient species Brassica oleracea.[29]

Yes, I did it right. Only 3 ingredients. Are you like some people and just pass up plantains in the grocery store? I used to be like that. I didn’t even know what they were. They looked weird and terrible. I don’t think like that anymore since I’ve gotten to know them. You can either choose them when they are on the yellow side or the green color side. The only difference is that the yellow ones are riper and therefore sweeter. The green ones are less ripe and won’t taste as sweet. That choice is just up to your preference. The yellow ones are a little harder to work with because they are more sticky. I do recommend green but you should experiment and have fun. Don’t worry about the skin being brown and a little bruised. The skin on plantains is really thick so the fruit is more protected than with a banana.
Evolutionary biologist Marlene Zuk writes that the idea that our genetic makeup today matches that of our ancestors is misconceived, and that in debate Cordain was "taken aback" when told that 10,000 years was "plenty of time" for an evolutionary change in human digestive abilities to have taken place.[4]:114 On this basis Zuk dismisses Cordain's claim that the paleo diet is "the one and only diet that fits our genetic makeup".[4]

These little sandwiches are really pushing the limits of a conventional sandwich. Bacon is serving as the “bread” and guacamole is the thing getting sandwiched. Avocados are bona fide superfood, and contain plenty of potassium, fiber, and healthy fat. Bacon is often the scourge of most diet plans, but on Paleo it is allowed so why not dig in? The two go really well together, and you’ll often find them as add-ons to deli sandwiches because they simply taste that good.


These sweet potato chips do a great job of filling in for regular potato chips. They have the same texture you’re looking for, both as you pick them up and once you put them in your mouth. The sea salt ensures that they’re salty enough to satisfy, and the rosemary gives them a distinct flavor that really plays well with the sweet potato. And of course sweet potatoes bring a lot more to the table in regards to nutrients and fiber, so you’re actually helping yourself along with these rather than with potato chips that will only set you back.
