I eat meat. Lots of meat. But with a focus on lean meat: chicken breast, london broil, pork loin, fish, and any hapless vegetarian that strays into my path. But I also eat a lot of veggies. All I can stuff down. Most meals are accompanied by a giant bowl of spinach salad. Breakfast is usually two eggs, more meat, and coffee (milk, no sugar). I know, milk isn't paleo, but neither is indoor plumbing. A modern cave man has to draw the line somewhere.

There is also an emphasis on grass fed meats if you can get/afford them. They have been a little difficult to track down. Game meat is also highly desirable. (Come hunting season, I'll write a post that will teach you city slickers what it means to put the "hunter" back into hunter-gatherer.) This is all due to the type of fats that these types of meat contain. Many people have heard that fish has "good fat," which is omega 3 fatty acids. Our typical diet is high in grain fed meat, which is high in omega 6 fatty acids. The omega 6 is essential, but the modern diet is too high in omega 6 relative to omega 3's. Thus, fish, game meat, and grass fed meat is emphasized to restore what the proponents say is a healthy and natural ratio of omega 3 and 6 fatty acids.
All my reader(s) can relax. Not only is my diet healthy, it's better than WeightGain 4000.
