Fatty acid metabolism. From Wikipedia.
After eating carbs you still feel hungry and want some more. Food companies know this. Their driver is profit not health.
There is no nutritional value in carbs. They are not an essential nutrient (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Essential_nutrient) and the body will survive without them.
Low carb high fat is based on current medical science with hunter gatherer vs modern life as a supporting factor. Saturated fats are good.
Paleo aims to be based on actual hunter gatherer diet from archaeological data. No domestic animals -> no dairy. No agriculture -> no crops (wheat, rice, etc). Saturated fat was eaten only in seasons when hunted animals were fat themselves.
