This Reg Diet'n just drives me crazy -- the crap that she preaches...and people just love her. And she is on National TV -- why doesn't anyone question her?

She has a lisp that makes her sound simple too, but I just meant in general she looks healthy - in as much as she is not obese or the other extreme.

Had one on our local news today as well - she actually almost got it right http://www.wdtn.com/dpp/news/feed-your-face%3A-food-to-keep-you-smooth - sans the "sandwich" part of breakfast and the way off pizza for lunch

If I can make someone Paleo laugh hard enough to pee themselves, then balance will be restored to the universe. ;)

Respectfully disagree that the woman looks healthy...her skin looks reptilian to me.

I believed this type of stuff and utilized this type of plan to lose over 100lbs. I don't believe it's the healthiest way to do it, but it worked. I am certainly better off without this body weight, even if conventional wisdom got me there.

I was interested enough in nutrition and fitness to spend time researching it while I was losing and continuously tweaked my personal "plan". I don't think most people are willing to do that.

It does drive me nuts to watch, listen or read the conventional wisdom stuff now that I know better. I still think that a majority of people would be better off following this type of advice rather than continuing on their current paths. Sure, Paleo (or even gluten free) for all would be better, but that's not likely to happen.

If you can keep your head when all about you are losing theirs and blaming it on you...

Letting yourself be driven crazy when someone is wrong -- on the Internet, or anywhere -- is a surefire road to poor mental health. Don't concern yourself with what direction the masses are heading in, except so far as to ensure you and your loved ones aren't trampled by the herd.

I'm just guessing here, but no-one questions this stuff because it fits with our general belief system that we all must suffer just a little bit with regard to food, sex, anything from which we might potentially enjoy pleasure. God knows what would happen to society if we followed our impulses. Hence, it's ok to have dark chocolate covered bananas (but not the regular chocolate), corn syrup-free pudding cups, and whole wheat pretzel sticks.

At least I know which snacks to serve my enemies in Hell.

You know it's a pretty weak diet plan when one of the intentional benefits is that you'll spend all day scuttling back and forth from the bathroom, (or most likely limping as fast as you can due to the electrolyte-imbalance cramps induced from simultaneously drinking your own body weight in Evian whilst following a low-salt diet). And what if, whilst manically swigging from your BPA-enriched plastic water bottle, you also follow her suggestion to park far away from your workplace? Could be an unpleasant situation. And here I thought that being Paleo could put a cramp in your social life...

Because (without having viewed the video since I'm at work) she's just spewing the same pablum of conventional wisdom that everyone else spews that on its surface just makes so much sense (but never really seems to work out without severe hunger and suffering).

Duuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuude. Just don't look, just don't look. ;)

Normally I like hearing those whom I don't quite agree with like that crazy man David Wolfe, just because there may be decent ideas. But this? This is not worth the brain-power. You will never learn anything from CW morons.

I watch the Today show but can't stand this lady either. She's towing the company line, she believes this is the right food to eat and people find her credible. She looks healthy anyway and if she's eating this stuff it must be right, right? She probably eats nothing but chicken or fish and salads and if she's eating these "snacky" foods she's pushing she likely counts out a serving and that's all she eats. The average American will sit down with a bag of chips in front of the tv and mow the whole bag down before they realize what they've done.
