Are there celebrities who are paleo whom we can cite as good examples?

Answered on September 12, 2014
Created September 27, 2010 at 3:25 PM

I'm not talking about "celebrities of paleo" (Dr. Harris, Robb Wolf, Cordain, Sisson, plus many wonderful paleo bloggers, etc.) - I'm talking about famous people who have made the switch to paleo and turned out the better for it. I saw actor Josh Duhamel was wearing Vibrams and had to wonder if maybe he's jumping on the paleo bandwagon (not that all people wearing Vibrams are automatically paleo, but y'know...).

So are there any celebrities out there known for something other than the paleo lifestyle in and of itself? Athletes, musicians/singers, actors/actresses?

I guess the reason I ask is I've heard so much about celebrities going vegan recently, and the next time that comes up in conversation it would be fun to say, "Yea, though did you hear that [insert cool celebrity here] decided to go paleo last year?"

Could be a good entrypoint/icebreaker too for when you have those elevator conversations when someone casually asks about your weight loss or other improved symptoms. "Did you realize so-and-so is also paleo?"

Of course they are both gorgeous woman. But I'm 99% sure that they both have some form of eating disorder. They are VERY then. And I understand some woman are naturally very thin. But these 2 are not naturally 40-45kg! I have seen both women with more weight on them (earlier in their careers) and they look much better.

She might be super hot, but she is also super skinny and i'm not being a jealous female, im being a worried one though. Seriously judging by some of the pics I have seen of her in magazines she would have a bmi of about 16/17 and looks very thin... maybe a great role model for eating disorders?

I think they're both great role models in both looks and in personality. It's so nice to see strong women in Hollywood. I think they are both super attractive. I'm a straight female and I'd switch sides for either of 'em. Rawr.

I think Drew Carey is one of the best examples, as he's someone who made a very visible positive change. It's hard to see a diet as something applicable to yourself when the star following it was skinny and athletic to begin with. Drew Carey, on the other hand, is someone noted for being obese, whom people can relate to.

Hi, where did you see that Forrest Griffin is paleo? According to http://www.bsnonline.net/diet/forrest_griffin.html he eats oats for breakfast and some protein powders in between. His actual meals look more paleo, but low-fat.

Well on a looks only basis I can't see a problem, I am probably naturally as slender as them and I eat most people I know under the table, so in your opinion I look like scarecrow too when in fact I'm perfectly healthy, I can't see anything wrong with either of them.

Saying they are repulsive is going too far, saying they aren't natural would be better. Eating this way, for me, is about getting your genes to express themselves as well as possible naturally.

Jennifer Lopez was dukan diet, which is pretty much the compatible with the paleo diet. I believe the Beckhams are gluten and lactose free. Still, Megan Fox is the most famous and best looking even if it's all artificial, sadly.

So that kinda stuff just.. like.. happens in LA? For some reason I still imagine celebrities as having a magical aura, or at least a permanent entourage. And yeah, I remember he left a play early or something because of mercury poisoning, from too much sushi. If it wasn't true, he definitely gave a great performance.

Hence "good" example - not just doing paleo for a role, or to get back to a bikini after bearing twins, only to revert to Neolithic ways. I mean any celebrities known to be truly dedicated to the way of eating or even the lifestyle in its entirety.

on the jason statham workout portion of men's health a couple years back, his short description of his diet definitely seemed paleo...

"1. No refined sugar or flour at all, ever. Bread and pasta are out, as are sweets of any kind. No fruit juices. No booze. "That's the hardest part right there," he says. His dessert every night is plain yogurt with fresh fruit...

  1. Spread out the calories. Statham has six small meals daily. The foods aren't surprising -- egg whites, vegetables, lean meats, fish, nuts, and protein shakes. But the 2,000-calorie limit is gospel."

Jennifer Lopez was dukan diet, which is pretty much the compatible with the paleo diet. I believe the Beckhams are gluten and lactose free. Still, Megan Fox is the most famous and best looking even if it's all artificial, sadly.

Megan Fox is not hot. She ruined her face with surgery, and she has toe-thumbs.

She might be super hot, but she is also super skinny and i'm not being a jealous female, im being a worried one though. Seriously judging by some of the pics I have seen of her in magazines she would have a bmi of about 16/17 and looks very thin... maybe a great role model for eating disorders?

From everything I have read the vast majority of younger, slender-to-thin celebrity women and cut celeb men claim to follow a lower-fat, low-cal version of a paleo diet, if they are not vegan (ish). Lots of fresh fruits and veg, meat, fish, nuts, strictly limited carbs. Many are gluten-free. Coconut oil (saturated fat!!!) is even a big thing. But never do they call it 'paleo'.

Megan Fox and Angelina Jolie are both naturally gorgeous, slender women who have largely ruined their looks with extreme weight loss and premature plastic surgery. They still manage to look pretty good despite it all, but it's a crying shame.

Thought I'd reactivate this thread to share some exciting news: big name mainstream blogger Heather Armstrong of the Dooce.com empire declared on her blog today that she has gone Paleo and feels awesome!

Wherein I go a Touch More Insane

Dooce has been one of my favorite blogs for yeeeaaars and it was so exciting to see these two hemispheres collide. I predict a small spike in Paleo interest over the next few days or weeks.

well, pardon me, but Megan Fox and Angelina Jolie are the two most repulsive looking actresses i have ever seen. i'm not flaming the paleo diet but if these two ladies are the iconic endorsements of paleo then it sends a pretty bad message. anyone agree?

edit: i'm male and straight. of course they're hot, but they aren't natural - they're scarecrow looking (their hands make me want to belch). and megan fox is an airhead - i definitely wouldn't trust her. does the fact that i'm getting such a response from everyone (besides the fact that i'm totally upsetting the hivemind) mean that people here genuinely think these actresses are to be admired and seen as role models? i probably crossed the line here but SURELY I'M NOT THE ONLY ONE WHO THINKS THIS?

Saying they are repulsive is going too far, saying they aren't natural would be better. Eating this way, for me, is about getting your genes to express themselves as well as possible naturally.

Well on a looks only basis I can't see a problem, I am probably naturally as slender as them and I eat most people I know under the table, so in your opinion I look like scarecrow too when in fact I'm perfectly healthy, I can't see anything wrong with either of them.

Of course they are both gorgeous woman. But I'm 99% sure that they both have some form of eating disorder. They are VERY then. And I understand some woman are naturally very thin. But these 2 are not naturally 40-45kg! I have seen both women with more weight on them (earlier in their careers) and they look much better.

I think Drew Carey is one of the best examples, as he's someone who made a very visible positive change. It's hard to see a diet as something applicable to yourself when the star following it was skinny and athletic to begin with. Drew Carey, on the other hand, is someone noted for being obese, whom people can relate to.

I would ask the person who posed the original question in this thread -

Why do you feel the need to justify your choice to eat a Paleo diet?

Why do you feel the need to fit in or be approved of by a person who forms his or her opinions about what is viable based on pop culture celebrities who may look good but may not even be worthy of admiration from a health or quality of character standpoint, as opposed to basing his/her opinion on rational thought, scientific evidence, and personal experience?

And how in Gods name did you end up in a crowd that hero-worships vegan celebrities?

I would say its time for a paradigm shift. Hehe.

Kobe Bryant defies father time eating Paleo (While Ashton Kutcher ends up in the hospital ignoring it).

Two very different celebrity diets are in the news this week.

On the one hand is the story of Ashton Kutcher who ended up in the hospital with pancreas issues and severe pain following a fruitarian diet which was part of his efforts to ???get into character??? for his role as Steve Jobs in the soon to be released movie Jobs. Steve Jobs, the visionary founder of Apple and a known fruitarian, died in October 2011 from complications of pancreatic cancer.

On the other hand is the amazing story of LA Lakers guard Kobe Bryant who is turning back the clock following a Traditional Diet all the while looking, feeling and playing better than ever at an age that most would consider to be way past his prime.

Check out the full story here: http://www.thehealthyhomeeconomist.com/kobe-bryant-defies-father-time-using-traditional-diet-while-ashton-kutcher-ends-up-in-the-hospital-ignoring-it/

Something I read a while back. The diet is paleo (except for the potatos), but the situation is pretty extreme (so not good for a paleo example). He was cutting up for a movie, so he had a big incentive to stay on the diet, plus he was doing boatloads of physical work. The guy looked rock solid for the movie, but he indicated he'd be running back to his bad diet after the movie.

"He forewent his rice and ate only skinless chicken breast, raw fish, potatoes and salad. He prepared the meal himself during off days. If he wanted spice, he would add some black pepper. Once in a while, he got to eat beef cooked in plain boiling water which he would have appreciated it very much as if he has won a lottery."

There seems to be a bit of debate about the relative merits of Megan Fox and Angelina Jolie. As has been hinted at, I personally wouldn't say no, but they would not be my first choice.

As other posters have also pointed out, celebrities are not necessarily the best people to endorse things. They are often ephemeral and change their stance to suit popular opinion (and, of course, to keep their name in the headlines).

I work for a global entertainment/media corporation and have encountered several celebrities from various fields (sports, music, TV, film). Some are the nicest people you could wish to meet (polite, take a genuine interest, happy to chat etc.), whilst many more are simply obnoxious. There is also the question of tasteless makeup and surgical 'enhancement' (not entirely convinced of the enhancing qualities in most cases).

I would rather have Wolf, Cordain, Harris, Sisson etc. as champions/figureheads, leave the celebrities to sway in the breeze to maintain self-promotion, and concentrate on the beautiful, natural, local girls who are only concerned with their health.
