    CBS slideshow ranking various diets... anyone else see this?

    Shop Now
    1. Weight Watchers diet*Pictures - CBS News

    Anyone else seen this? Paleo ranks down in the twenties, but Jenny Craig and SlimFast end up in the top ten... Because we wouldn't want any one actually eating FOOD, now would we? Another hoot: diets like the 'mediterranean' get lower marks because they actually entail some food preparation... quelle horror!!

    Once you've serviced the urge to laugh, there is an undeniable impulse to cry...

    television shows are funded by the cash money.

    wherever the cash money comes from, this is what will be #1.

    this applies to anything from diet plans to presidential elections.

    so i will not cry with you.

    +1 what dado said. It always pays to follow the money. Haven't seen an ad for primal/paleo diet on tv yet.

    And now that Weight Watches supports McDonald's (and nor for the salads....for the franken nuggets) we know the money is rolling.

    Plus the problem with primal isn't that there is no advertising but if you cut out the wheat and grains that is 3/4 of the supermarket gone...there is no way they will support that.

    Eating primal is not a diet, it is a way of life.

    What is even more amazing if you click on any of the diet names it takes you to the study site and they also rank the best diabetic diet and paleo is way down on the list even though everyone who has had diabetes and other issues has seen an improvement here.
