While I like all the food on the Paleo diet, I am not into raw meat. The true Paleo man or woman was not cooking. Man's gut is no longer a paleolithic intestinal system. It is evolved and largely through cooking and baking over heat over a long period of time; therefore, we are used to a non hunter gatherer diet.
We can imagine that the true Paleo man ate fresh, and ate clean in his time and place. He was less likely to cook anything and was more likely eating raw animal organ meats and fish. The closest group on the planet today to the Paleo man are Eskimos whose native diet still consists of a liberal use of organs and other special tissues of the large animal life of the sea 'whales', as well as other fish. The latter were dried in large quantities in the summer and stored for winter use. The fish were also eaten frozen. In the past, seal oil was used freely as an adjunct to this diet and seal meat was specially prized and was usually available. Caribou meat was sometimes available and the organs were used.
The Paleo diet may well be a fad that will go out of fashion or stay fashionable as restaurants serving only rare steak will survive becoming the most popular place (s) to eat. And, think about it, how could we sustain 300+million people on steak and eggs given the amount of space and time needed to produce that kind of food? Unless, we start cloning organs for the new Paleo man to eat.
