Paleo-friendly News Article While I'm not always keen on Foxnews (I have it added to my Pulse so I can spy on the enemy), I was pleasantly surprised to wake up this morning and see this article. While it doesn't come out and say "Paleo" anywhere... (more)

Did anyone see the Rachael Ray segment of the "Virgin Diet"? What do you think about it?

Paleomofo 0 · April 17, 2013 at 3:40 AM

For a moment I thought of that as a diet subsisting only on virgins. Sounds reasonable as a 'detox' or a temporary diet just to see what you're allergic to.

Recent news: our ancestors were actually an alien race that dropped us off on planet earth, 35,000 years ago. This race evolved to eat sugar, bread, chocolate and coffee, BUT this diet ONLY works if you ingest NO healthy food at all

This is an offshoot from another question (here) but it seemed good enough to warrant its own thread. Has going Paleo affected how you view the news/media information? If CW was so dead wrong about nutrition, are they right about anything?... (more)

Taxing saturated fat = bad! Taxing sugar = good! Wait, what? Perhaps we shouldn't have professors and politicians making our personal decisions regarding nutrition for us.

Looks like Dr Oz may have learned a thing or two from all of his exposure to the paleo diet. Reconsiders fats, meats, low-fat diets, grains, gluten, dairy, among other things. Considering that this is appearing in mainstream media, especially as... (more)

Dr. Oz says one thing one day, then the complete opposite the next. It just depends on who his sponsor is that particular day. It's kind of hard to take anything he says seriously.

I enjoyed the article. I also was happy to see them mention that boxed/processed foods that say "gluten free" do not translate into "healthy." This is definitely showing gluten free as acceptable and doable (albeit difficult).

It's definitely a concern to me, and I actually think we're more susceptible to the shortages than the regular person (since we have particular things we want). It all leads back to the sustainability of the Paleo diet for the general population.... (more)
