I ask mainly because If I could find some sort of carbohydrate to eat (apples are to voluminious and bananas hurt my digestive track when I exceed 3 in a short period of time) I could modify my diet to fit, but as it stands I can't find a adequate substitute. (I could also start a general paleo thread if that would be better)
Overeating carbs basically get converted to pure sugar in the body, messing up insulin levels and causing a whole battery of other health problems including heart disease.

Paleo eating isn't anti-carb so to speak. You certainly can eat sensible carbs such as veggies and fruits. it just promotes a more healthy eating lifestyle based on real science and human history.

Check out some of the videos in the "Low Carbs No Energy" thread for more info.
