Although you have to pay for the detailed information on this website, I was satisfied by reading just the free stuff.  I recommend checking it out.

I don't agree with this politically correct paleo diet. They encourage unlimited intake of fruit, huge intake of lean protein (30-40%??), where does that leave fat? Where most hunters come from, there's not unlimited amounts of fruit.
"A 100-gram serving of roast buffalo contains only 2.4 grams of fat, and 0.9 g of saturated fat, whereas a 100-gram, T-bone beefsteak contains a whopping 23 grams of fat, and 9 grams of artery clogging saturated fat."

They assume that wild animals were somehow leaner than their pasture raised counterparts (false), and that saturated fat is "artery clogging" (also false - [url[http://www.heart-health-for-life.com/coconut-oil.html[/url]).

Here's a review of the book "The Paleo Diet"  by Sally Fallon from the Weston A Price Foundation - http://westonaprice.org/bookreviews/paleodiet.html
