    That's what I read, he eats fish occasionally,
    Primal/Paleo is not for everyone, it's for those who have committed to understand.
    READ THE BOOK! ...as Robb Wolf says: "Trying to convince people to save their own ass will burn you out."

      He looked awful and had trouble speaking at first.

        He is definitely managing to keep his weight down--but I'm pretty sure he has had some nip and tuck done.

          Well, if he's eating according to ornish plus fish, then if he cut grains, he'd be in our paleo family. LOL

            An inch of makeup, and a tan... you can even make old Bill Clinton look good.

            Take away both of those, and he'll look ill.

              I was watching To Be Or Not To Be this morning. It's a Carole Lombard movie, so I instantly snuggled under the covers and turned up the volume. In the first few minutes of the movie, there's a character who is playing a stage actor dressed up like Adolph Hitler, and he walks out onto the street in costume. For obvious reasons, he attracts a crowd since it's set in 1939 and filmed in 1942. He stands in front of a deli, and the narrator says something about "Could this be Hitler himself? Standing on a street in Poland and about to walk into a deli? It can't be! Hitler is a vegetarian!"

              WHAT???

              I had no clue, and I'm definitely NOT saying Clinton (or anyone else) is Hitler-esque, but I just never knew it before, and I was kind of surprised. Apparently he was all amped up about animal rights, which I find extremely bizarre given his record on human rights.

              Wikipedia article, and yes I know it's just Wikipedia, but still...

                keep reading the title of this thread as "Bill Clinton, Still Virgin..."

                maybe I should start wearing my glasses more?....

                  I think he looks pale and frail. That's better than chubby, red and bloated I guess, but I don't think he looks good.

                  Helluva speech though.

                    Hitler was actually very health conscious. He even contemplated banning smoking and restricting cigarette rations to troops but ultimately dismissed the idea as being to extreme (Hitler would be happy to know his dream has been fulfilled by our modern day Nazis). And Clinton really isn't that health conscious per se. He adopted the diet he's currently on only when he was literally at the point of death. However he may look, Bill Clinton is not a healthy man. He had quadruple bypass surgery a few years back and needed stents put in just recently. His diet is an attempt to hasten or turn back decades of cardiovascular damage his krispy kremes and McDonald's diet has done.

                      YES, he gave a helluva speech, but if you looked REALLY closely, you could see his hands had tremors. His voice also seemed a little weak to me. The whole time I was thinking how his "healthy" vegetarian diet was making him look GAUNT!

                      Bill, for goddsakes, eat a steak!

                        I seem to remember that Clinton is following Esseylstyn's program which is not only vegan but NO oils of any kind.

                          I had the opposite impression as the OP - I was shocked at how frail and non-vital he looked. His skin doesn't look right to me. I know some of this is just from losing fat when you are older, but it looks to me like he needs more fat, protein, and just a few more calories.

                            That silly vegan diet is killing Bill. The guy needs animal fat, bigtime. His brain is to wasting away.

                            Same old mistake "I had a heart attack, I better stop eating meat". Wrong, you should have stopped eating the bread, corn syrup and grain oil.

                              I'm surprised so many think he looks pretty good for his age. To my 69 yr old eye, he looks like he's not doing so good, especially considering that he can have the best medical care that money, fame, and power can provide. That hooded guy with the scythe seems to be hovering over his shoulder.

                                I agree RigD. I have been thinking he looks terrible for a while and was surprised as I read this entire journal.
