Doesn't it sound like Livestrong.com is endorsing Paleo (mostly)?

Yeah, I meant for the subject to say, "Doesn't it sound like Livestrong.com is endorsing Paleo (mostly)?" I was in too big of a hurry. I don't typically think of them outside of the mainstream either, I guess that was why I was a little surprised.

I've found livestrong in general to follow conventional wisdom, so I don't take them too seriously.

Who cares? That entire website is setup to appeal to googles web crawlers and is loaded with outright misinformation on many topics. One used to be able to leave comments on articles but apparently that has been stopped. It is simply another one of many, many sites that is loaded with fluff in order to possibly get someone to click on an advertisement and nothing else.

I wouldn't say it's "LIVESTRONG" per se. It's Adam Bornstein, who is the editorial director of Livestrong, on his blog which is associated with the diet/exercise/lifestyle behemoth clearinghouse that is Livestrong.com. I follow Adam on Twitter and from the sound of it, yes, he is Paleo-ish. But if you ask Lance Armstrong if he recommends Paleo? He would probably not.

I was seriously shocked to see this article from them. They are so big on CW normally. I loved it and tweeted it and posted on FB. I would love to think this is a new trend but I have a feeling it's more of an isolated incident.

Actually, it sounds like they are:

"Or at the very least, we know that the people who were eating more red meat were also consuming a poor diet that was low in high-quality micro-nutrition."

"“This whole idea of pointing the finger at a single dietary culprit in the development of a multifactorial outcome is hilariously preposterous,” adds Aragon. “Epidemiological data is observational and thus uncontrolled. It’s hypothesis-generating, and is incapable of demonstrating causation. There is no direct evidence that red meat is a special agent of disease.”"

"As a practical way to ensure your health, mix select lean cuts of red meat with fattier options if you are trying to prevent overeating (because fatty cuts are very caloric). Stay active, eat fruits and vegetables, consume protein from a variety of sources, sleep more, and enjoy your meat without guilt."

Not sure why you would think they weren't, from this article?
