Paleo Diet Worst of 2013
 
Is paleo the worst diet of 2013? - Food - Yahoo!7 Food

Quote:

A website in the US has named the paleo diet the worst diet of 2013.

US News ranked 29 diets based on advice from health experts, and rated paleo equal last along with the Dukan diet.

The diets were judged on criteria including weight loss, heart health, nutrition, and how easy they are to follow.

The best performing diet was the DASH Diet, designed to prevent and lower high blood pressure.

Paleo is a high fat and protein diet that looks back to the Paleolithic era (which ended about 10000 years ago) for its guidelines. Fresh fruit and vegetables, lean meat and fish, plus nuts, seeds and 'good fats' like olive and coconut oils make up the bulk of the paleo menu, while grains, legumes, dairy and processed foods are out.

Wait, why is eating meat, veggies, and fats while eschewing processed poisons bad again?

It's a fad bro.

Is this because more "ornery folk" would be more likely to have more trouble following a paleo diet, by any chance?

"No burgers, no fries, no coke, no icecream, no pizza... you ****ing kidding me?!"

Anything that centers around whole foods and satiety get my nod, no matter what people call it or eat.

Core foods, I like that term. It is like saying real wood, when something is made from particle board, and has a veneer.

While the DAA ackowledges that paleo has its good points, such as promoting fruit and vegetables, lean meat and fish, ultimately the professional body is unhappy that "it excludes nutritious core foods such as breads and cereals, and dairy foods".

Cereal is a core food? Wow, I should be dead. I eat eggs for breakfast almost every morning and haven't had a bowl of wood chips (oh sorry, "cereal") in years.

I'm not necessarily big on paleo, but this is all annoying. Any time something becomes popular there has to be the inevitable backlash. It's just like how VH1 plays a video non stop for years, then a few years after that declares it one of the worst videos ever made.
