    Interesting Cholesterol finally took a toll and had to quit eating meat. This guy definitely has the skills to survive in Paleo times

    I like how they claim his cholesterol would have been even higher if he didn't exercise. Hmmm... you sure about that, Daily Mail?

    I would say that having a genetic disease that killed both your father and grandfather would be something to take seriously. However, I don't see any evidence that had they eaten a diet high in fruit, vegetables and whole grains (which is apparently what the Spartan's ate... really?) would have prolonged their lives.

    Who says he "had to quit eating meat"? You're just spouting CW nonsense. Troll?
    Four years Primal with influences from Jaminet & Shanahan and a focus on being anti-inflammatory. Using Primal to treat CVD and prevent stents from blocking free of drugs.

    Eat creatures nose-to-tail (animal, fowl, fish, crustacea, molluscs), a large variety of vegetables (raw, cooked and fermented, including safe starches), dairy (cheese & yoghurt), occasional fruit, cocoa, turmeric & red wine

    Bear Grylls and his doctors said he had to stop eating meat. The real CW is the "belief" that the cholesterol is what killed his dad and grandfather.

    Based on fruit, vegetables and wholegrains with as much raw food as possible and no animal fats or vegetable oils, it is a Spartan regime, but Bear has embraced it enthusiastically.

    Yeah based on wholegrains. If he was eating a lot of that before it sure could explain a lot, no? Inflammation causes pain and cholesterol problems. Someone should introduce him to the HeartScan Blog!

    The article is from 2007? I wonder if there are any updates on his condition?

    The dude is pretty awesome, but you know what they say about things you can't unsee? I can't think of him without thinking of this video now. Sorry, Bear.
