The folks over at Paleolithicdiet.com combined two things that I love, paleo eating and nerdy infographics. Although the data and visuals are a bit scattered the infographic does a good job explaining how the paleo diet works and why many people need to alter their diet/eating patterns. The amounts of seemingly inaccurate nutritional information is mind boggling to me and hopefully with this blog I can learn more about paleo nutrition and share it with you.
Patrik, the guy who brought you PaleoHacks.com is behind the new website and infographic.
Hope you have a great weekend. I’d love to hear what you’re cooking this weekend. Drop me a comment and let me know.
This is a great look at the diet of the average American. Honestly, I’m surprised we eat 415 punds of vegetables and 273 pounds of fruit per year - that seems high to me. Also notice that corn makes up almost 14% of the vegetables and corn syrup accounts for a staggering 30% of sweeteners! Wow.
Looking at this makes me happy to embark on the paleo style of eating! If I could use Illustrator I’d love to make one of these for the typical primal/paleo eater
