I want to Develop A Paleo Diet Infographic
« on: December 10, 2014, 10:10:06 PM »
I'm new to the Paleo lifestyle and I'm starting a blog about my journey. Surfing the net I came across a Paleo infographic and put some thoughts together on its accuracy. Please look at my thoughts around the infographic and give me suggestions to change it because I want to create my own infographic for my site.

I'm also attaching the graphic so you don't have to read my thoughts on it if you don't want to. Please don't forget to give me feedback changes that I can make to the graphic so I can create an infographic for other newbies like me.

Generally it seems good.  There are a few things in the grey area, that could be left out of such an infographic.

Some strict paleo people would reject pumpkins because they are a new world fruit that was not available to paleolithic humans.  Some reject some types of tree nuts, usually cashews and almonds.  Many consider olive oil not to be strictly paleo.

Different people draw the line on fruit in different places.  I think almost all would include berries, and exclude fruit juices.  There's discussion on apples, oranges, pineapples, and bananas, among the ones you picture.

Here's the graphic that I came up with. I tried to point out the grey areas. It's a pretty hefty graphic not small and concise like the other one. Everybody has their own opinions on what's Paleo and what isn't. It's a little challenging to come up with something. I also posted it on my blog with an attempt at an explanation. I'm sure I'll be fiddling around with this thing for a while:
