    Celebrities & Primal/Paleo

    Shop Now
    Oprah, Jennifer Hudson, Kristie Alley, John Goodman, et al - how long before some celebrity or pop-tart-of-the-month discovers our little secret and it goes mainstream?

    I know people who value Oprah's opinion over all else, the President and Pope included. If she latched on to Primal it would be on the front page of every magazine in the world. What if Brad & Angelina did? I think it's only a matter of time, what do you guys think?

    Sure wouldn't hurt Don Henley, Joe Walsh & Glenn Frey to Primal out. (TBS is already perfect. )

    Oprah won't go Primal or Paleo for fear of being sued by the grain industry.

    Hollywood seems to like its starlets to be young, skinny and weak looking. As far as Oprah and co. if they can't package it and sell it I'm not sure they'd be interested. They are all down the vegan rathole w/ Clinton right now anyway.
    Wheat is the new tobacco. Spread the word.

    Speaking of Oprah and Clinton...I asked Mark Sisson if he would mail a copy of his book to them. He said sure, if I could come up with addresses. Does anyone know how I could find their addresses?? It's a total long shot, but hey, if they have the books maybe they will actually read it. (Wishful thinking, I know.)

    Does Ray Mears count as a celebrity/pop-tart-of-the-month? ROTFL

    I don't think it's Primal, but she definitely deleted grains! Of course there was a huge outcry against her for *gasp* suggesting that carbs can cause weight gain and low-carb can hep weight loss, so she backtracked and now all of her US Weekly/People-type "meal plans" include plenty of whole grains. *facepalm*

    Steve Nash eats a diet mostly free of refined carbs/sugars. Almost enough to be paleo. If you google his name and paleo you get a few hits but it hasn't made Sportscenter, unfortunately. Steve Nash is a guard for the Suns (uh, that's basketball...) for those not in the know. He's been the MVP at least once. Some of his team-mates and others around the league have adopted the "Nash diet"

    Aaron Rodgers of the Green Bay Packers was spotted reading The Paleo Solution. I can't find news stories as to whether he is living Paleo or not, the first hits are from the hunter-gatherer.com post on the matter surrounding last years Superbowl. Again here, it's possible that other football players got interested in it through his exposure, but again (curiously?) it never made any big publications. Cue conspiracy theorist music, whatever that may be.

    Novak Djokovic's gluten-free diet actually did get a lot of press, but mostly on the gluten angle, not a "eat whole foods" angle, and though I just did a mild search I didn't find specifics on what he eats day to day. He did kill both Federer and Nadal just a few weeks ago though.

    That's all I got. Ain't going to ever be enough paleo products to peddle or to sponsor an athlete (I fucking hope there never are any!) so I don't suppose an athlete/celebrity would go out of their way to shout paleo/primal because there's little financial gain in it not to mention their publicists might be like "shut the fuck up..."

    Drew Carey gave up grains, if I recall correctly. He lost ~80 pounds and got off his diabetes meds entirely. Not sure if it was Paleo/primal or Atkins, but the concept is similar.
