The Paleo Diets have been criticized for assuming that humans all ate a single diet in Paleolithic times.
Actually, humans in different locales and different climates ate a rather wide variety of diets in those days. And not all experienced ideal health.
Having read a rather large number of books on diet and nutrition over the past forty years, I would suggest John Robbins' excellent, "Healthy at 100".

I saw an improvement in my health when I eliminated hot dogs from my regimen in 1974, but I still had lots to learn about food back then.
A google search for "Problems with the Paleo Diet" will bring up many critiques of the PD.
