It’s always reassuring to see some more mainstream news coverage of our way of eating. KCTV5 in Kansas City did a special report recently on The Paleo Diet. There’s a video embedded on their site that’s fairly show but showcases some good success stories and endorsements.
Here are a few of my favorite quotes:
“You realize how much you enjoy eating fresh, natural, well-cooked food,” Fletcher said. “It’s been great!”
“If you want to thrive without taking a bunch of medication and going to psychiatrist, you have to do what our ancient ancestors did. Eat that way, exercise that way and sleep that way,” he said.
For O’Keefe, the most important component of the Paleo diet is the elimination of all wheat products.
“The enemy is really processed carbs like grains,” he said.
I suspect we’ll be seeing more and more of this as people spread their own success stories through word of mouth and on-line. Eventually maybe even the government’s “experts” will catch on.
