Why would you cut out sweet potatoes?! They are so good for you (and delicious)!

I wouldn't! And obsessive bodybuilders would still eat them plain, but cooked in butter and brown sugar would make them off-limits.

If they knew about Korean sweet potatoes, they would never worry again, since they're perfect when baked and then just eaten plain.

I eat normal sweet potatoes plain for the most part, with the exception of adding salt.

I guess what I'm saying is that it seems like the differences between simply eating "healthy" and eating paleo are minor. In a couple years there will be a new diet with slight changes, but sold under a different name.

Yep. The amount of money to be made in telling people things they already know is incredible.

A healthy diet is one which consists primarily of whole natural foods, eaten in moderation, with an emphasis on high-nutrient plant foods (like dark leafy greens, berries, nuts and seeds, mushrooms, etc). And if you really want to max out your health, you'll pair it with an active lifestyle and cut out high-risk activities like smoking, alcohol abuse, drug abuse, unprotected sex, and careless driving (a greatly underestimated risk). And if you really, REALLY want to be healthy, you'll work on maintaining a positive attitude, reducing stress, getting social interaction, and challenging yourself mentally.

And on top of that it's a lot better to do 80% of the work in all those areas than 100% in one while neglecting others. If you smoke or have excessive stress or abuse alcohol or have a sedentary lifestyle, it isn't really going to matter if you get your diet from good to great or great to perfect.

i eat regular sweet potatoes steamed...i like them that way. i find that after not having the simple sugars for a while, my palate is much more sensitive to what is naturally sweet and not sweet.

yes...korean sweet potatoes are really good...although i dont know if they are paleo friendly or not. they seem much more starchy...kinda like reg potatoes.

Though if you have those down, then who really cares about the other things, right?

Something I stumbled across a while ago while researching this paleo diet was intermittent fasting. I think the correlation to the paleo diet was that cave men weren't always assured of their next meal. The idea for some is to skip a meal once a week or fast a day once a month or something like that. What I got out of it was that it's good for your system to not be clogged up all the time. So how I've kind of applied this to my life is to try and stretch my daily fasting period (for most people that's the team between your last meal one day and the first meal the next day). I try to have a fasting period of at least 12 hours--preferably 14 or more. When I'm successful at this I feel so much better.

That I would not survive. I need my potatoes. There are not too many sources of K that I can eat. I also seem to need more than average, or I have just lost too many sources of it to things I am allergic to. Bananas are out. But other than the fact that I definitely eat roots, I actually live on a diet fairly close to paleo. Mostly because it is easier to avoid bread and wheat if you eat a wide variety of seasonal vegetables.
