This is probably not the smartest topic for my first question but...
I recently came across this video from a 5 part special where a CBS San Francisco reporter tracked her amazing results by going Paleo over the course of several weeks. Its a great story and here is the link if you haven't seen it yet. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=84lkNik9pE4&feature=youtube_gdata_player
I was so excited watching the video since I thought this was the perfect video to motivate close friends and family members to give a Paleo diet a shot. But that excitement quickly dwindled when Dr. Cordain and Dr Lustig came on as the experts to talk about the benefits and drawbacks of Paleo.
The video reminded me of every other health related video Ive ever seen where overweight doctors tell overweight Americans how to live their lives.
Is anybody else frustrated by the fact that two of the biggest figureheads in the Paleo movement dont appear to be following their own advice? I respect both individuals very much so I don't want to take anything away from their work, but it just annoys me when there doesn't appear to be any personal accountability.
I also hated the comment that Dr. Lustig made about Paleo not being possible for everyone to do on a large scale. All that comment does is discourage people who may be on the fence about going Paleo, from ever giving it a try in the first place.
Do my frustrations have merit or am I completely out of line?
