I need to stop reading nutrition articles on CNN or I might rage and smash my monitor. Here's today's gem: http://www.cnn.com/2010/HEALTH/11/11/weight.loss.race/index.html?hpt=C2
The headline is "The bottom-line diet: Eat less"
The whole point of the article is a reiteration of quantity, not quality. They even manage to take a jab at paleo within the first paragraph. Then a few sentences later they reveal that a guy who lost hundreds of pounds changed his diet to "fruits, vegetables, lean meats."
There were no diet pills, shakes or detoxes. And no, it wasn't caveman food, grapefruit, Twinkies, Taco Bell or Subway sandwiches.
Tony Posnanski's 200-pound weight loss was straightforward, almost dull. "I changed the way I ate," said Posnanski, 34, who went from consuming 10,000 calories a day to 2,400. "I got rid of processed foods. I ate fruits, vegetables, lean meats.
My question: how does this garbage make it to the front page? Is the media really that incompetent or are they malicious?
