Paleo Diet a Fad?

I looked up the definition of the word fad and here is what I found:

By definition, the Paleo diet cannot by deemed a fad. It was utilized for 2.3 million years, certainly not a "brief period of time". The paleo way of eating was extremely effective at developing strong and healthy humans despite the absence of modern healthcare.

I am sure many readers can think of diet crazes that were very brief in comparison to 2.3 million years. These diets come and go because they do not work over a lifetime, they are sometimes complicated to follow, and they make the fad follower sick.

It is time for everyone to follow the diet that has the longest track record of success. One that required no arithmetic, no food scale, and no pen and paper.
