    I looked up her connection, she leans toward the vegan avengers...she is a wack job but that FOX station has a high regard for her insanity for some reason. She has a number of advice videos which they feature. More meat for me, thank you very much.
    Primal/Paleo is not for everyone, it's for those who have committed to understand.

      "Atkins had a heart attack at age 60. Need I say more?" Holy crap! What a nutjob!

        The more exposure this lady gets the better: she's only likely to harm her cause. The doc and the ladies doing the diet come across as calm and thoughtful, whereas she comes across as over-insistent if not actually emotionally unbalanced.

          I am not sure how she can claim it was created and is money driven. Other than a few books on Primal and Paleo and offshoot cookbooks most the resources and recipies are readily available for free. And other than Mark's Primal Fuel, the focus is on real food not food products.

          I love how she focuses on the rapid weight loss means it is not healthy and totally ignores everyone saying how much better the feel - face-palm.

          PS
          I must say the plates of food look amazing so full of colour.

          Eating primal is not a diet, it is a way of life.

            Dr. Atkins had a cardio myopathy which can happen from a number of things. He died after slipping on ice and his cause of death was listed as "blunt impact injury of head with epidural hematoma". Source: How Did Atkins Die - Death Of Dr. Robert Atkins

            Adele Davis died from some obscure cancer, but that doesn't mean we should all avoid organ meats. Me loves me liver.

              And that'll get her precisely nowhere, too. There are enough people who come even onto this site, which doesn't haven't a pure weight-loss focus and which warns against crash-diets and talks about body-composition rather than weight, and pretty much say that they'll eat anything and do anything however unhealthy to lose weight.

              People listening to her rant are just going to think: "Oh, so you do lose weight on this diet. Even the person who doesn't like it says so."

              I must say the plates of food look amazing so full of colour.
              Yes, and that made her look stupid, too. She was virtually howling that there was "too much meat" ... but where was this conspicuous over-consumption of it? Not on that table. Just some varied and interesting-looking dishes. If it was the two women we saw earlier preparing food who made those, they set up an artful and intelligent display.

                "Again, rice and beans are a staple for billions of very lean people in Asia, India, Africa..."

                Yes, that's called "malnutrition". Its a staple because it's cheap and widely available, not because it's so freaking awesome.


                "But the amount of meat that goes into the Paleo diet..." as the camera scans the plates containing mostly vegetables. Priceless!

                And the whole "Atkins died from a heart attack" thing always pisses me off. Agree with him or not, at least get the facts straight. He slipped and fell, hitting his head.

                I don't know what Dr Sebring was thinking, using all of that silly Data and Logic. He should have gone the more Expert route like the dietician, with her constant use of the word "billions" and her "Fact Check via What-My-Neighbor-Said".
                Durp.

                  She doesn't need to present facts, it's common sense after all...

                    So glad that I wasn't the only one who noticed this! We've got a few primarily vegetarian members around, don't we? Primal's do-able vegetarian style. (Though...um. Meat!!)

                    Dunno about you guys but I love me some veggies just as much as the meats. If I can cook it in meat juices, even better!!

                    This lady's just on her own weird agenda.

                      No, you need not. Your thinking is so fundamentally flawed that there is no reason to take anything you say seriously.

                              To be fair to the maddened dietitian Cordain's macronutrient ratios do include a lot of protein, which is going to mean more meat on the plate that is normal for most people.

                              This high reliance on animal-based foods coupled with the relatively low carbohydrate content of wild plant foods produces universally characteristic macronutrient consumption ratios in which protein is elevated (19-35% of energy) at the expense of carbohydrates (22-40% of energy).
                              Plant-animal subsistence ratios and macronutr... [Am J Clin Nutr. 2000] - PubMed - NCBI

                              Up to 35% of energy -- that's going some.

                              I don't suppose the dietitian has read the paper, but she's probably vaguely aware, and it is accurate enough.

                              But you don't have to eat like that, of course. With the sheer quantity of vegetables Dr. Terry Wahls is recommending, for example, you probably couldn't manage a Cordanian level of meat.

                              From the "public relations" point of view -- which is maybe the important one -- I think the cook who prepared those dishes did a very good job. A viewer looking at the screen isn't going to think, "That's more meat than I could manage."
