  • Dr. Oz to talk about Paleo Diet

    Who thinks this is going to be a bad thing???

    Today on The Dr. Oz Show, Dr. Oz is going to feature Dr. Loren Cordain, a gal named Maria (can't remember her last name) who suffered from and overcame her MS with the paleo diet and Christina Lianos, co-author of The Paleo Miracle (Amazon.com: The Paleo Miracle: 50 Real Stories of Health Transformation (9781480286344): Joseph Salama, Christina Lianos: Books).

    I don't know if this is going to be good for Paleo/Primal or if it'll be detrimental.

    Here is what Dr. Oz has already put out on it:

    Paleo Diet Craze: Does It Work? | The Dr. Oz Show

    Paleo Diet Playbook | The Dr. Oz Show

    Catch me on the Dr. Oz show!

    I don't know... I'm apprehensive. I'm not a fan of Dr. Oz b/c I think he's a trend chaser and only endorses things for a dollar instead of endorsing things b/c he truly believes in them. I am fearful of what will come of our lifestyle by his airing about the Paleo diet. Maybe it'll be good. Maybe a good majority of those who see the show will try it and end up embracing it. What I expect to happen though is that too many people will be turned off by the restrictions, disbelieve b/c of the lofty claims (that are all too often true) about lowering blood pressure, ending heart disease, starving cancer, etc, and will discredit it based on that. I expect that some will give it a half hearted effort and will become discouraged when weight loss doesn't happen after they claim on the show that someone can lose 75 lbs in 6 months because instead of eating until full, they eat and eat and eat b/c all of a sudden calories don't matter. I expect that people will decide they're bored or it's too hard or too time consuming and will go back to boxed "just add water" meals. I'm afraid it will become commercialized with "Paleo" convenience foods and will ultimately go the way of the Atkins Diet and will lose credit.

    Hopefully I'm wrong. But it seems like whenever Dr. Oz jumps on board with something, it gains a ton of popularity for a while, only to crash and burn and be kicked aside as a failed endeavor. I hope I'm wrong and I hope it becomes more mainstream and people start paying attention to what they're eating as a result of this show. I hope they'll pay attention to what's in their food and how it's being produced. And I hope they start to make the changes necessary to improve their health.

    What do you think? Is Dr. Oz going to be a good thing or a bad thing for our lifestyle?

    Thanks, Jenn. I'll be sure to set my DVR.

    I too, am a bit apprehensive about it. But I'm hoping because Paleo is mentioned on his show, along with one of the top authorities on the subject (Dr. Cordain), maybe people will actually look into it and try it. As they say, there's no such thing as bad publicity.

        Set to record, thanks for the heads up. Will be interesting either way. I don't expect it will make much difference. People know by now that he has something different on every day. Would be nice if some tried and found it good for them.
        Started Primal June 2012 at 148.5lbs, and 5' 1", reached goal weight in 5 months.
        Lowest weight 93lbs - too thin. Now stable at around 100lbs much better weight for me at my age.
        Primal, minus eggs, dairy and a myriad of other allergens.

          I know it works for me, so honestly, if a bunch of trend trackers try it and fail, I really don't care. LOL< that said, so help me, if there is a rush on Kerrygold and grassfed beef, I will cry.

              If you have any HyVee stores in your area and do the fuel saver thing, they have KG on fuel saver this week (buy KG, get 2 cents off per gallon for each brick you buy). That alone made me stock up.

                Is this a rerun? Didn't he already do this or am I thinking of somebody else he had on his show?

                  Who cares? It works for me and that is good enough.
                  The above should be viewed as complete and utter nonsense.

                    I don't see how anything he has to say will impact me one way or the other, honestly.

                      I won't see this, but it will be interesting to read about how the show went.

                        Bad bad bad. All those diet-of-the-week folks temporarily driving up the price of pastured and organic foods. Here's hoping he warns everyone to stay low fat and blows the whole presentation of it.

                        Who says back fat is a bad thing? Maybe on a hairy guy at the beach, but not on a crab.

                          Word up.. nothing wrong with round up sprayed GMO's, or food that eats GMO's. Right?

                            haha valid points... I was kind of hoping that it would make our community larger and more powerful against the organizations that try to keep us down... I don't like Dr. Oz and have never watched his show, but I know people who find him to be very influential (who happen to have autoimmune diseases) and I'm hoping they watch. I'll DVR it so I can see what he has to say, but having talked to a friend who was a guest on this particular episode, it sounds like it is a very short discussion of what paleo is and barely hits the high notes.

                              Last time a "Paleo" convenience food (a cookie) showed up, it was driven into the ground. Hopefully even the newbies will notice whenever a "Paleo" convenience food is torn apart and avoid it like the rest of us.

                              We just have to not buy them. If we don't buy them and even condemn them, the companies make no profit and will have to eventually give up. It means Paleo will make SLOW progress into the mainstream, but that the progress will keep it whole and healthy.
