Rush Limbaugh Understands Paleo

Answered on September 12, 2014
Created March 10, 2012 at 12:48 AM

Did anyone else hear Rush Limbaugh yesterday and today support all that we believe in heart disease and the government's falsehoods regarding what is considered "healthy"?

If only we could get him familiar with Paleo and then we could reach a great number of people.

Here are the transcripts:

Why was this closed? Is it just cause Rush is a right wing source? I don't think anyone shuts down a post about the New York Times or NPR discussing Paleo. He reaches millions of people a week, exponentially more than NPR, seems a little judgemental.

Good stuff. No matter your political affiliation, if you're paleo, it can only benefit you if your lifestyle reaches a larger audience. The more people that adapt the diet, the cheaper your grass fed beef will be and the more restaurant options you have.

lol....mmmmm bacon :)...Anyhow, wish I had a recipe. The spices and what veggies I put in always change depending on whats in the fridge. I like Italian sausage, ground beef, and veal in as the meats go (guess thats technically only two types of meat, but three textures). Just google texas chilli and that is what I'm talking about.

I am glad this topic is closed. Just so you know - I am a registered Democrat and if I had an AK-47 and a license to kill wild boars, Rush would look like a human sieve. Then I would make a video "The Disappearing Rush" and I would post it instead of a pig one. You are welcome.

Ugh, duh! I don't think my brain is working right - bacon and anything is a standard meal for me. Let's just pretend I never said anything :) And you also have to give me your chili recipe...

Killer...are you serious! Bacon and eggs....actually bacon and anything :). Chili needs at least three different meat sources IMO. Oh, even a cobb salad has multiple protein sources.

I wonder how often he ate multiple sources of protein per meal that he actually needed that to be a diet rule? In my worst SAD days, I don't think I ever had more than one kind of meat per meal. Is that a common thing?

@DFH I was referring to Jessica Jackson as a fellow Paleo.

It doesn't seem like a great idea to set up conditions where a WOE is associated with anyone (of any persuasion) so intensely partisan and intensely controversial and confrontational.

I'm not so sure Rush is another Paleo, if that is what you meant. His motives are certainly not. One weighs that against the benefit of one more voice breaking down a lot of myth that needs breaking down. Change is crazy like that sometimes.

Yeah, like I want to be free from the democratic party conspiracy to control my life, because I will be so free and healthy if the other side wins? :) All BS aside, nothing wrong with getting the word out, anyone who does that gets a salute.

I'm not sayin' his world view fits with mine or what I perceive "ours" to be. I just don't like down-voted questions/comments because I disagree with the ideology/religion/world-view of another Paleo.

"...Conventional wisdom, I ignore it. I toss it out the window. It's groupthink. Conventional wisdom is set by liberals. It's set by the Democrat Party, set by the media. And it's all aimed at making victims of every one of us. It's all aimed at making sheep out of all of us..." this was his wrap up of cholesterol theory, clipped off his site!

+1 I'm as left-wing as they come, and hate Rush but there was nothing wrong with this comment.

No thanks. Saw it. He's just going to use that for partisan political nonsense. His turned some blog by Lundell into a rant against a certain political party, guess which one? Yeah, it's all their fault, and the other side will all go Paleo. And a monkey might fly out of my butt.

I talked to him on the air live today about the paleo diet and food freedom. Here's the transcript of the call. The idea of having freedom to eat how we choose does not have to be a partisan issue. I was glad to be able to have access to his huge audience to get the word out about this way of eating that rejects conventional wisdom. http://www.rushlimbaugh.com/daily/2012/03/09/food_activist_or_freedom_fighter

I don't listen to that guy, but a quick Google search reveals that this is his diet of choice:

"How did Rush Limbaugh do it? He just recently announced that he credits his success to South Florida's own Quick Weight Loss Centers.

Here's what we know about Rush LImbaugh's weight-loss plan:

His diet consists of about 1,500 calories a day ??? and he's limited to only one type of protein per meal. (So, in other words: no surf and turf.)

He also says that Quick Weight Loss Centers has some of "the most delicious recipes, you will not believe. "If you try this you will not believe you're on a diet."

Quick Weight Loss Centers also prescribe supplements including protein boosters and carbohydrate blockers, according to ABC News."

I heard it. He is not in the paleosphere, He is in the politcosphere and puts that "spin" on it. Anything that gets the message out is a good thing and Lee did a great job today. I am a fan of his but I want the message to get out that this is a lifestyle that works with human physiology and will work for anyone regardless of political persuasion.
