The paleo diet may make you thin, but it is not the way to go. We do need grains. "Grains" got a bad rap because the only grains we eat are corn and wheat. How about oats, barley, quinoa, millet, etc? Not much of that is eaten, except by animals (namely millet and oats). There is no balance, its all wheat and corn all the time in most "food". How about some hemp? I guess that is a weed or grass, but we do not have that in the diet either. Lentil beans are great, but not many people eat those either. No one is "gluten intolerant" (hey, is there a drug for that "disorder" yet?), they are just out of balance with too much wheat in the diet. I would probably agree with this book, "Wheat Belly".
