What's confusing?
Eat meat, fish, eggs, veggies, fruit & tree nuts.

Get your fat from animal products, avocado, coconut oil and tree nuts.

For fat loss keep fruit and nut consumption to a bare minimum.

That would be Loren Cordain (seriously, this guy needs to revise his book already!). You don't need to limit your eggs out of fear of fat. Animal fats, especially if the animals were raised with their natural diet, are good for us. Vegetable oils, canola, sunflower, other seeds, are all at least highly questionable, at worst bad for us.

Cordain's book is fine, there's just changes that need to be made:

1) fatty meats instead of lean meats
2) I don't think he covered nightshades, which have inflammatory properties

3) You can still overeat Paleo foods and gain bodyfat.

You should aim to eat as much animal fat (no dairy) as possible.

One caveat about eggs:  commercial feedlot eggs have a poor omega 3:6 fatty acid ratio.  However, if you get pastured eggs or organic omega 3 eggs, you really don't need to worry about limiting them.

I think Neanderthin is better than Cordain's book, but as it is out of print, you may end up paying quite a bit for it.

Just make sure you read the labels and get the good stuff, commercial bacon sometimes has not so great additives. Plus there is the salt issue, but you get very little salt while eating Paleo, so you should be ok.

However, Cordain now has a lot to say about nightshades.
