Bear Grylls says on the Runners Show, he is not a vegetarian and at home he tries to avoid meat and dairy.

http://www.examiner.com/celebrity-diet-and-exercise-in-national/man-vs-wild-star-bear-grylls-reveals-how-he-lost-35-pounds

from another resource:

Fitz: What are your eating habits like? Bear: Out in the wild, I eat lots of disgusting things just to get my hands on some nourishment. At home, I rarely eat any meat or dairy though. My family and I eat lots of fruits, veggies and whole grains.


Fitz: What???s your favorite healthy food? Bear:Tai green tofu curry with brown rice. Fitz: What???s your favorite unhealthy food? Bear: Cheesecake

Does this changed your world view now?

For anyone who does not know him, he has done the Discovery Channel show Man vs Wild and Born Survival, where he is in survival situations doing stunts and eating bizarre things.

Later for some show he get exploit for staying at hotels. Whatever its TV.

Why don't you post Snookie's diet next and see if I care any less than I do about this. Who cares what one celebrity says/does? Really? I care about science and truth.

Indeed! But Les Stroud's adventures were less entertaining than Bear's b/c his rundown emotional state was more real/raw. It got depressing watching him struggle especially since it was for "entertainment". I wish Bear's show had just put up an opening notice that the work was more staged then they let on.

Hi AlanGreenland, If I ask him first, how am I supposed to judge the truth of his answer? How do I know which of his statements are true and which are false? I was a fan of his show until the motel/hotel use was revealed.

One individual can never change my views on the Paleo lifestyle, it works for me & my family and has been the way my People have lived for 1000s of years.

Kudos to Bear for avoiding the whole diary thing, especially since he's not a 12 year old girl.

What i mean Bear Grylls is very fit and eat the stuff which are often mentioned as harming fructoses fruits, carbohydrate containg grains and fruits and veggies. Do you think different now after nowing this. And will you see your dieting more relaxed now?

Bear Grylls has familial hypercholesterolemia.

Therefore, he's got a special set of needs and priorities.

Why do you believe what he says? His show is a lie about survival, he stays in hotels. His fitness is impressive. Maybe he eats more primally at home but it's not PC to say so therefore he parrots the CW for interviews="wholesome grains".

Following a "paleolithic" diet has less to do with striking certain (whole) foods/food groups from your diet and more to do with self-optimization through experimentation. OK, so Grylls is seemingly very fit and routinely includes "healthy whole grains" in his diet. Great for him, as well as the millions of other seemingly very fit people who do just the same. What works for him may not be optimal for me (nor him, as it were).

You're your own Grok, man. Learn from others but don't forget to individualize in accordance with your needs!

Diets are individual. Who's to say that his diet as described doesn't work for him? That's the paleo principle.

Also, to each their own. Why should you give a crap what he eats, as long as he doesn't give a crap about your diet as well?
