    U.S. News Diet Rankings '13 (Take a guess)

    Shop Now
    Our good friends in the mainstream media - those loving folks who tell us that porn is natural and healthy, defending yourself with guns in their urban hellholes is terrible, and that Arabs are conspiring to nuke the world with non-existent bombs - are continuing their ways. Ya know, the media wants what's best for the Christian world. Really, they do!

    Two people shared links to the 2013 U.S. News & World Report diet rankings. As before, they put the paleo diet dead last (now 29th out of 29). As a surprise to nobody, they put a government-approved diet at number one.

    Predictably, the toadies at the powerful Gawker Media site Jezebel echoed the U.S. News Rankings, to the giddy delight of their barren and childless women and gay male readers..

    The media is obviously doing this intentionally. Anybody who says that the media's motive for advocating the S.A.D. and for belittling paleo/ancestral health/low carb diets is merely because they're ignorant or because they're placating sponsors is lying to themselves.

    I don't understand the point of your comment about Jezebel. The article takes a stab at all the diets, and concludes that you should ultimately do what works for you. Was it so you could bring up the barren and childless readers?

    That was secondary. The U.S. News & World Report rankings are going to be referenced the world over, but two girls at my Facebook page cited the Jezebel one. But that's just the start - this will be cited as the standard-bearer in countless media articles over the next few months. But I don't read Jezebel, personally, and all I know of it is what I read in Jack Donovan's article here. But if you like Jezebel, that's cool.

    Tool. The article speaks for itself and is interesting to see the reasons paleo is criticised.

    Your commentary introducing it just makes you look foolish.

    so gays are anti-paleo?

    I am not a guy, gay or childless but find those comments off.

    Right, so given what Jezebel is, and especially given the nature of the article, who cares that Jezebel wrote anything about the rankings. Hence why I wondered why you felt the need to point it out in the first place. Once again you almost started meaningful discussion, but you had to throw in that signature phrase! I won't give you anymore shit though, cause you'll get enough I'm sure.

    But I listen to my body and my body says porn is good for me...
    (Actually I'm basically porn free, though I see no problem with it provided use its not excessive).

    I have to say, for paleo to be last...you have to wonder what these guys are smoking. Slimfast is better? LOL!
