Just wondering what people's thoughts are on the Paleo diet? I'm already into trying to fill my body with whole and organic stuff, but food has been a real struggle for me lately. And i feel like I'm getting a bit of a gut because of it. I mean, maybe i just need to workout my pecs more, because I'm starting to develop a six pack, but i feel like it's not supposed to stick out further then my chest, so i was thinking maybe I'm building up a lot of fat underneath. Anyways, i would really love to stop eating so much sugary and greasy foods anyways. My biggest hesitation with the Paleo diet, is that i feel like it would probably be hard to maintain with a busy social life -- i wouldn't be able to eat with other people when they have food that's not on the diet. I already don't eat beef at all, because it's bad for the environment. (Raising cattle requires a ton more land to raise than the same pounds of meat of chicken or any other kind of meat. US beef consumption is a huge leading factor for the deforestation of central and South American rainforests.) And for dairy products, i usually try to buy non-cow products, like goat's milk and yogurt, or avocado butter. But none of these would be allowed on the Paleo diet. For those who don't know what the Paleo diet is, basically you try to eat like a cave man. Meaning meat and fruits and veggies -- any food groups that (in theory) could be eaten by a hunter-gatherer society.
