    Just saw this and thought I'd share. There's actually 3 Paleo-greats on the list!

    erm...

    dr. oz is listed at number one. my understanding is he shills a different snake oil every week.
    As I ate the oysters with their strong taste of the sea and their faint metallic taste that the cold white wine washed away, leaving only the sea taste and the succulent texture, and as I drank their cold liquid from each shell and washed it down with the crisp taste of the wine, I lost the empty feeling and began to be happy and to make plans.

    SkinnyGirl (Betheny Frankel) is on there also. I actually have a lot of respect for anyone who can come from a crap life and turn herself into a mini-industry, but she sure doesn't influence my attitudes about health and fitness.

    Poor Dr. Oz - once a respected heart surgeon, now a network clown. But hey, the money is good, and that's all that matters.

    They can all probably be picked apart for something.

    I think Dr. Oz's image is used by snake oil producers without his permission. He's not necessarily an advocate of the Paleo lifestyle, but I wouldn't say he promotes snake oil. Didn't he once say that he's never endorsed a specific product, but that his photo pops up illegally all the time? Don't know where the truth lies, but he is undoubtedly a 'mover and shaker' in the health sphere.

    Dr Oz is more about entertainment and pushing his own agenda than actually educating people. Just look at how he treated Gary Taubes.

    Yeah, I've lost all respect for Dr. Oz. He used to be worth listening to, but now he shills every new "weight loss supplement" even if there is evidence it doesn't work or even evidence it's dangerous. A lot of people trust him, and I think he's got a responsibility to them because of that trust, but apparently he doesn't think so.
    High Weight: 225
    Weight at start of Primal: 189
    Current Weight: 174
    Goal Weight: 130

    Primal Start Date: 11/26/2012

    What the heck!? Did they read my post and decide to switch the order? Swear to god when I visited yesterday Mrs Obama was #1.

    Oh they also moved Arnold up, he used to be down around 10. And they moved Taubes up, he used to be 85. I have a very good memory with these things.
