    The President's personal trainer wrote this article, calling the paleo diet crazy and a fad:

    I love how it almost always boils down to...."most people just don't have the willpower to not eat shit", I'm sorry but any nutrition plan geared for health requires you to not stuff your face with cookies and other junk, why is it to do paleo we need anymore will than others?
    My whole life, I've felt like an animal......but I've ignored my instincts. I ignored what I really am. That will never happen again.

    As many people here have stated, doing what this "expert" suggests doesn't work. He says: "It all comes down to hard work, exercise, and of course, staying away from Big Macs and deep-dish pizza." That is just not true! Exercise CANNOT overcome crap eating.

    I don't fault people for taking shots at Paleo or "caveman" eating. Isn't that what we do to conventional wisdom diets? You all know this way of eating works for you. But others don't...and don't feel the need to believe in or think about anything other than what they are spoon-fed from the experts.

    My husband is one of said people. He is so "brainwashed" by conventional wisdom, he can't open his mind to anything else. I asked him, if he would change the way he ate if he KNEW it would result in him being able to get off the diabetes and high blood pressure meds. His answer - no, I would rather take the meds and enjoy the foods I love.

    A slightly side note... why is vegan sometimes written veg*an or veg*n? Is the name too holy for mere mortals to put in writing?

    I take it to mean vegetarian/vegan combined. The * could also be a reference to the fact that vegan is an ideal impossible to actually achieve.
