I found this recent audio interview with the author and am listening now.
Just heard Matt interviewed on our local NPR mid-morning show.
Here's his book: Diet Cults: The Surprising Fallacy at the Core of Nutrition Fads and a Guide to Healthy Eating for the Rest of US: Matt Fitzgerald: 9781605985602: Amazon.com: Books
I've never heard of him; wondered if there's been any reaction from the Primal/Paleosphere about his ideas. He singled out "Paleo" during the interview...
Vegan from 1993 until Oct 16, 2010. "D'oh!!"
30BAD is certainly a cult.
Primal? Not so much. At least not here, anyways.
We see other diets as cults but never our own...
Gelatin/bone broth recipes blog. (Latest recipe: Paleo Truffles, No-Bake Pumpkin Pie)
Professional Style Website. (NEW POSTS: Lauren, Freelance Fashion Stylist; Dorothea, Neurosurgeon; Irene, Operations at Ideel; Rechelle, CEO of Juliette)
Nah...what I follow would better be defined as ancestral health, but paleo and primal are missing some important traits to being cults. His whole premise is likely to be an expansion of how a cult is defined rather than any realistic correlation between dietary trends and actual cults for wow factor.
