The Paleo Press Kit

Answered on August 19, 2014

Since our brush with fame, the NYC Paleo Meetup has had to deal with many press inquiries. Sometimes when I am talking to the press it's like they didn't do ANY research before hand (yesterday I talked with a reporter who seemed to think we all ate only raw meat and who kept repeating it over and over). I was think of putting together a packet of a few short paleo articles for the knuckleheads to read.

Any recommendations??

Judging from your blog, you have a knack for putting together clear, attractive diagrams. I'd say a nice one or two pager with a few good diagrams and some limited textual explanation would be great. Think poster or pamphlet. I don't have a high opinion of reporters in general so I'd say keep it as dumbed down as possible, nothing too complicated, and lots of eye candy. They probably aren't going to bother to read articles and probably wouldn't understand it if they did but definitely worth including a bibliography of links for the few good ones to follow up with.

That is an excellent and very clear explanation- if the press read it they should become more informed.

Here is what I have so far. This is a community wiki, so you can edit it if your reputation is high enough.

PaleoNu's Get Started

Paleo Diet Summary This is a pretty fair and simple introduction.

Intro to Paleo at Paleo for Life has a concise description of both the principles and the benefits. It should be worthwhile in a press kit to describe not just what Paleo is, but how it is beneficial.
