Have you read something about the Primal Diet?
Primal is mainly raw animal products with raw vegetable juices, raw honey and raw dairy.
Paleo is just eating how our ancestors did before agriculture. It has a lot of variances depending on who you ask. Here on this forum people advocate for raw paleolithic diets: raw meat, raw eggs, raw organs, raw honey, raw fruits, some raw vegetables, you got it.

Cheers

The main difference is that each has a different interpretation of what a true paleolithic diet would be.

Primal by AV emphasizes low carb, high fat, high protein and low fiber, and includes plenty of dairy. It's very high in meat, eggs, dairy, green vegetable juices, coconut cream, moderate honey, and occasional fruits and nuts. It also encourages small amounts of fermented foods.

Typical paleo is high in sugar, high in fiber and moderate in fat and protein. With tons of fruits, a moderate amount of meats, some vegetables, some eggs, some nuts, occasional honey, and excludes dairy. Generally discourages juices and fermented foods.

The main criticism of primal by typical paleo adherents and others is that dairy probably wouldn't have been consumed by adults in the paleolithic era.

The main criticism of typical paleo by primal adherents and others is that fruits were rarely available except when in season, and in any case they wouldn't have been nearly as sweet as modern domesticated fruits.

You are making Primal Diet look great compared to the paleo diet. The paleo diet is not what you think. The paleo diet doesn't give you a meno or measurements about how much you need to eat. The paleo diet is a big mark, you need to choose what suits you best. Also, the primal diet isn't paleo at all.

I'm simply describing the tenets of each diet. If you think the primal one sounds great and the paleo one doesn't, maybe there's a reason why.

I also specified that I'm talking about typical paleo, of course other people can have different diets and call it paleo also, but it's not what most people doing paleo are doing or trying to do.

True enough. I note that others have stolen the "raw paleo" label such as raw vegans and even sellers of beef jerky. I even noticed a box from some supplement firm which was labelled "raw paleo" in my local supermarket. Incidentally, Billa, Merkur and, to a lesser extent, Lidl, have become marvellous in the Austrian supermarket scene, now offering grassfed meats, a very wide range of organ-meats, along with  raw wild game etc.Merkur is the best of them all.

You can label a piece of cardboard "raw paleo" if you want. It won't be raw paleo just if you call it like that. If there are consumers that are stupid enough to believe what ever shit they are told, good for them. You can call pizza a sandwich. That won't transform the sandwich into a pizza.

Actually... I'm not sure there's a lot of difference between a pizza and a sandwich. Take a pizza and fold it over, then it's a cheese sandwich
