Not a bad way to drop weight, but cruel in that is does not include God's Gift to man, i.e. drink. So, in a particularly McCainian way, I have trumped the Paleo Diet with the creation of my Celtic Bronze Age Diet.
Most people consider me slender, and I suppose I am, but when I arrived at middle age, my weight does try to creep up on me if I do not watch what I eat and drink. My normal mode of eating tends to be Paleo naturally. I do not eat sugar for example and I can not eat dairy products. I have a extreme sensitivity to casein or the proteins in cows' milk, and to a slightly lessor extent to the milk of other mammals. I love French bread, know how to make it from scratch, but since the age of 40 I learned if I eat bread my belly grows, so I pretty much have given that up as well.
I like the Paleo Diet in concept, but let's face it, as world without ale and beer would be a very sad place indeed, not to mention not being able to imbibe the delicious young wine from Catalunya, René Barbier... which can be had in Oxford for 12 yankee dollars for a 1.5 litre bottle, which ain't bad for this lovely young wine. So I have modified the Paleo Diet, reworked it, into the McCain Celtic Bronze Age Diet.
Because of my work, I know my racial ancestry, ethnicity, etc., I have had Ychromosome, mtDNA, and autosomal DNA tests done on myself. The McCains are about as Celtic as one can get. Our family and their migrations hither and you in Europe can be traced via our DNA results. Circa 10,000 ago we lived in northern Iberia. Our distant DNA matches are in Galicia, Asturias, Catalunya, and what is now extreme southwest France. Some time in the Bronze Age 3600-600 BC we migrated to what is now mid Argyll, the parish of Kilmichael Glassary. We are your typical Atlantic Zone Celts, of the Atlantic Modal.
