They're Just Simple Cavemen!

From this morning's New York Times: Meet some "meat eaters," a subculture in New York of men (and women) who just want to be a simple cavemen.

The caveman lifestyle, in Mr. Durant’s interpretation, involves eating large quantities of meat and then fasting between meals to approximate the lean times that his distant ancestors faced between hunts. Vegetables and fruit are fine, but he avoids foods like bread that were unavailable before the invention of agriculture. Mr. Durant believes the human body evolved for a hunter-gatherer lifestyle, and his goal is to wean himself off what he sees as many millenniums of bad habits.

These urban cavemen also choose exercise routines focused on sprinting and jumping, to replicate how a prehistoric person might have fled from a mastodon.

Keyrock (and his BMW) would be proud!

One more thing: Who doesn't miss the wonderful Phil Hartman?

If the caveman diet was so healthy why do so many of the teeth show wear and cracks from their food. Also....didn't cavemen reach old age in their 20's?

Just saying.....
