All of these authors have done their homework and are experts in the science behind their claims. The proportions of the fat and protein set aside, all agree that excessive carbohydrates are the culprit behind all of today's "lifestyle" diseases - diabetes, obesity, cardiovascular disease, cancer, and even Alzheimer's disease. Our bodies are meant to operate efficiently on proteins and fats from animals that have also eaten what their bodies are meant to operate on. Our bodies are not evolutionarily designed to eat excessive amounts of carbohydrates based on grains, sugar, and fructose.
I decided to make a weekly menu from each of the sources listed above. As you can see, they are very similar in their recommendations. I thought this might help me plan more for the week, since deviation from primal/paleo eating for me tends to occur when I have to grab something quick or I forget to defrost the meat for dinner. This is not a menu written in stone. Life happens and substitutions can certainly be made. I didn't include chocolate or paleo substitutions in this menu. I might in later versions, but I decided I wanted a bit of a pure version this time around. I'll post a pdf version on the Menu page, but here is Week One:
