Diet and nutrition / Re: If oil is paleo, then so is processed sugar

Alaskan Natives had oil lamps long before the area was colonized, and they also kept seal oil in vials to drink for energy and warmth.

How long ago was that? And does it matter that I'm not Alaskan - meaning, was it specific to their population or would it be a general adaptation across many?

While still not technically paleo, many people supplement their fat intake with cold or expeller pressed oils simply because it's often difficult to obtain sufficient amounts of fat from other sources and these oils are minimally processed.


How can you not get sufficient amount of fat from whole foods? Meat, fish, eggs, nuts, seeds, avocados, etc.

Oil is isolated from whole foods in order for us to have these bottles of it at the store. Sugar is isolated from whole foods in order to have these bags of it at the store. So why do so many people consider oil to be paleo while sugar is not?

Personally I think it's because it's commonly accepted now that processed sugar is unhealthy and certain oils seem to be fine. So it's people calling certain foods paleo because they think they're healthy, NOT because they were eaten in paleolithic times.

From my experience, paleo works because it gets your hunger mechanism to work properly (you feel full at the right time). With certain processed foods there's a delayed response or maybe a person can override the hunger mechanism with these foods because they taste so good.

But basically I agree that paleo helps get a person to their natural weight because of its effect on hunger.
