Since the site seems to be attracting some interest from the raw crowd, I'm going to tell you what I think of the raw idea.
Much of the raw paleo discussion emphasizes the raw over the paleo. Raw modern fruit loaded with fructose is more paleo than lightly cooked meat? Not a chance.
Whether a food has been subjected to heat is more important than the macronutrients, micronutrients and antinutrients in the food? That seems absurd as an organizing principle.
We have not had time to metabolically adapt to cooking? Whether we have been eating cooked food for merely 250,000 years or millions as Richard Wrangham claims, there has been plenty of time for us to adapt to cooking. I don't find any of the arguments against cooked food convincing.
Where does the raw is better idea even come from? It seems based on analogical or simple syllogistic reasoning rather than science. It takes technology to cook, so we must be better off without cooking because other animals can't cook? There is very good evidence humans evolved in a divergent fashion from other primates. As gorillas went in the direction of vegetarianism, hominids since H. Habilis over 2 M years ago evolved to eating other animals. I believe the caloric density and efficiency of becoming predators and exploiting the fat stores of other animals allowed developmental energy to be devoted to brain growth, which in a virtuous cycle, allowed development of social organization and technology including organized hunting coordinated with gathering and cooking technology. This social and technological evolution combined with carnivory fed back into further brain growth in a positive feedback loop over (at least) hundreds of thousands of years culminating in H Sapiens.
But let's say I am wrong and cooking is only 50,000 years old. Even if that were so, where is the evidence in the present that we are not adapted to it? Unlike the case with wheat, linoleic acid and fructose, I've seen no medical evidence cooking is bad. The PaNu method is informed by science. To posit evolutionary discordance requires harm in the present, not just lack of evidence we did it back in the day.
How about refrigeration? That is less than 100 years old. I wonder how many raw paleo folks refrigerate their meat? Shall we shun refrigerators because only fresh or rotten meat is truly "paleolithic"? I say only if there is some biologically plausible medical reason to suspect refrigeration (or central heat, or laptop computers, etc..) is bad for us.
PaNu is about metabolism, not food re-enactment. Simple analogical reasoning without attempts at falsification can easily lead to the same silly emotional reasoning used by vegans like Ingrid Newkirk (a rat is a pig is a dog is a boy...)
Raw paleo is based on a completely unsupported dogma against cooking that has zero basis in biochemistry, medical science or paleoanthropology. It is based on weak analogical argument only. Positing that the core dogma is that everything should be raw and then arguing over a spectrum from raw veganism to 100% meat ignores the most fundamental elements of metabolism. Saying that butter or cream are not "paleo" because they were not consumed way back when, when these animal based sources are nearly pure animal fat is just nonsensical.
The good news is raw paleo seems to exclude wheat, non-fruit sugar and excess plant oils. I like where most of raw paleo ends up, I just don't like how they get there.
As far as the "zero carb" thing, I have the same concerns. Saying all carbs are bad, and we cannot tolerate them at all is just another unsupported dogma. Saying we don't need carbs vs making a fetish of totally avoiding them can lead you to very different places, one of which is the reasonable accusation of being cultish and unscientific - this impedes spreading the message and hence makes it harder to help non-fanatics with their health. My own diet is nearly zero carb some days but I have never claimed that that is is better than 10 or even 20% carbs. I am not saying it is not, I just don't have evidence that it is.
I eat my meat so rare it is almost raw and I eat sashimi and tuna completely raw. But not because of raw dogma, I just like it that way. I eat no potatoes or white rice or yams because I am sensitive to starch, not because I have unequivocal evidence they are bad in small quantities. I eat a VLC nearly carnivorous diet. The most important elements of this are no wheat or other grains, zero plant oils and very low fructose. Whether the carb level is 2% or 10% or even 20% with preservation of these more important parameters, I have not seen evidence there is a difference.
PaNu is often conjectural, but will always be based on science and I am constantly looking for evidence I might be wrong.
PaNu is proscriptive (don't eat that food!) because the way to the EM2 is to avoid the neolithic agents of wheat, linoleic acid and fructose, not through duplicating a particular dietary composition from the paleolithic period - there was too much variety to even do that, and much of what I read about what paleo man ate is pure conjecture if not paleofantasy.
I am fairly confident about what paleo man did not eat, however, and that makes our task much easier.
I welcome zero carbers and raw meat carnivores - you are way healthier than those on the SAD, but your will is more durable if backed by a resilient science instead of a rigid and brittle faith.
