When she said our ancestors ate like that all the time, I don't think she meant the cavemen...I'm sure she was talking about our grandparents and great-grandparents and she is correct. My grandparents ate bacon and eggs with buttered toast for breakfast, not whole wheat bagels or tofu. They drank whole milk and fried food in lard, not canola or olive oil. My grandmother made her own bread and they ate it at every meal.....One of my grandfathers lived to be 74 years old and the other one was 88. They worked hard everyday and that folks is the difference between why it was ok for them to eat like that and not for most of civilation today....Because most people don't work anywhere near as hard as they did back then. They set behind a desk all day and push a pencil or type on a keyboard.

I really think people are off thier rocker about paula cooking no one could eat like that all the time. besides what about people who dont eat southern style cooking who have diabetes and not all of us have heart disease . but we do know that some people just get diabetes with age. my family dont eat a lot of fried foods an diabetes runs in the family. i admire paula for coming out, yes it takes time at first its unbelieveable but if you educate your self ,you can live with it without going without any food you like, we all eat to much on holidays and have to your pick of the best mom makes but even mom didnot cook that way every day. so ,ok people get over it .

Our ancestors ate berries, nuts and seeds and if they were lucky, killed some kind of animal occasionally. That is just an ignorant thing to say. The way she cooks and eats, it is no wonder she has diabetes, heart disease is next.

Our 'ancestors' didn't cook, never fried anything, and never saw butter, cheese, a hoe, a hoecake, or a cradle.
