Rich Roll did a very well worded response a lot of the confusion rolling around about fats, low-carb, etc. Definitely worth a glance.
Let me prefice his article by restating: I believe that nutrition is extremely personal. What works for one person may well not work for another based on genetics, disease, etc. The only responsible way to eat, if you really care, is to determine through ongoing experimentation what works well for you.
That said, I think that a lot of the Paleo movement is good: whole food, minimally processed, stay away from known inflamatory foods, but I don’t (personally) deal with fats well (no gallbladder) and I have found myself happily carb adapted and see no reason to change.
Lets also face it… bacon, while tasty, is not nor has it ever been “good for you”.
