You might be right but you're missing the point.
It depends on what "the point" is. The "point" of this thread was the OP asking whether modern "paleo" diets are anything like actual ancient "paleo" diets. And the answer is "no." That's the "point" of this thread.
I was in no way passing judgment on whether some aspect of modern "paleo" approaches may be good or bad nutritionally -- only pointing out that they have very little in common with the foods eaten by people a hundred thousand years ago or whatever.
Yes a modern orange is excessively sweet (no seriously, they are far too bloody sweet, it tastes like sugar, not orange anymore) - apples too - however if you eat a diet of 95% unprocessed goods, green leafy vegetables (modern or not) - a sensible amount of fruit and some meat, it's still vastly vastly better for you than eating high processed garbage, including even "healthy" things like packaged breakfast cereals.
At no point did I imply that all aspects of the modern "paleo" approaches were necessarily bad nutritional advice. Obviously eating less processed food is a reasonable choice, but one doesn't need to go back 100,000 years to find less processed food. If you ate a diet only using foods found a couple HUNDERED years ago, you'd also be eating mostly "unprocessed" foods by today's standards, and those foods from a couple hundred years ago would be a lot more like today's supermarket "unprocessed foods" than trying to make some claim to approach a diet of tens of thousands or hundreds of thousands of years ago.
It's the dogmatism about it that I see as the problem, not the general principles. There's no necessarily logical reason to exclude all foods that date from later than the dawn of agriculture if you're admitting a bunch of foods that have been selectively bred in agriculture for millennia. The issue should be about balancing the nutrients among different food sources, regardless of when those foods date from.
And frankly, if you watch the video I linked, at the end of her presentation, the speaker comes to similar conclusions -- conclusions that sound suspiciously similar to things that "paleo diet" proponents often say. The difference is whether you want to buy into a diet because of arbitrary distinctions created for marketing reasons, or because it actually is more balanced. Most of the paleo dogma about what always to eat and what never to eat is unfortunately about the former.
