Just wanted to provide proof tht the paleo diet will help get the girls by providing a picture of our 100% paleo son, Duncan:

Cute.  But that benefit of the diet doesn't seem to work for me. Of course I am 58 years older.

Duncan is 8 months old.

Don't feel too bad.  The girls in that picture are three times his age, after all.  It's also clear he's in the "taller women are fine" camp - 50% taller in this case.

Nothing at all wrong with older tall women, or shorter younger women (just not too young), or women your height and your age.... ::)

If Paleo Dude finds any women three times his age, I definitely want to meet them!

About 60 years "impossible", although all these fasting life-extension people perhaps haven't had a chance to prove it all wrong yet... let's give them another 100 years to find out... while my ashes will be busy fertilizing an apple tree in Western North Carolina.

Hahah that's cute, you'll have to get him a baby-sized black book to keep all their numbers in!

kudos on raising him 100% paleo btw.  That is exactly what my girlfriend and I intend to do when the time comes.

Regular ladies man. I'm just wondering what you feed him.

His favorite food is roast beef.  He generally likes all kinds of meat, cut up small because he doesn't have teeth yet, and he tolerates fruit.  His staple is still breast milk, though.

I'd bet that the nutrition of the mother has a huge impact on his development. If I ever decide to reproduce it's going to paleo for my offspring and the mother.

I have some interesting data in this regard.  My wife is paleo - not quite as strict as me, but I think she's paleo enough to affect her breast milk.

We went in for Duncan's nine month checkup yesterday.  It turns out his weight and height been falling behind the curve over the past few months.  After we got home we plotted his history on a chart for breast fed babies, and he's still falling behind.  We're pretty sure that's because my wife, who works, thought she could get away with pumping three times a day instead of twice a day plus at midnight as she did with Margaret, so she's going to start the midnight pumping again to get him back up to speed.

So far, nothing about whether the breast milk is paleo there.  The interesting part, though, is that while his weight has been falling behind - by a lot, from 50th percentile to 10th percentile - his head circumference has been pulling ahead, from 40th percentile to 70th percentile.  That's likely driven by brain development, and it kind of gives one pause to consider how nonpaleo foods and even breast milk from nonpaleo mothers may be stunting brain development in babies.

You know how neanderthals and archaic humans from the same period had larger brains than modern humans?  I'm pretty convinced now that the brain size decrease in humans since then is at least in part due to a difference in diet.
