Informative speech on paleo diet. Any advice?

I am doing an informative presentation in my college speech class in a week on the paleo diet. I am new to this diet so I would appreciate any tips on things I should focus on as far as pros and cons. I have the basic concepts down but I don't want to overlook anything. Thanks everybody. This new lifestyle and diet change has been amazing and I hope to adequately project that to my peers.

It is meant to be informative and not persuasive. I think I will focus more on the nuts and bolts about what the diet actually entails for those who participate. Personal feels need to be left out.

I agree Talldog and Caleb. I still re-watch that video from time to time to remind myself that all that time cooking real food is worth the effort.

I think this talk should be required viewing for any paleo-minded person. +1.

+1 I think of paleo as more of a mindset--a way of thinking that leads you to make good choices about what you eat.

I would avoid labeling the diet. Instead you should talk about the importance of eating whole natural foods and avoiding processed foods containing preservatives, artificial additives, and chemicals. That's my 2 cents.

If you feel you need to label it and you need a visual aid, this video is quite convincing of the power of real food:

i think emphasizing the simplistic nature of paleo style eating would be helpful. i had a conversation with a nurse who described paleo as that "crazy diet for crazy people who drink bacon fat for breakfast". maybe dispell some of that nonsense.

It's important to speak of your own experiences, questions, findings, etc. It will help your audience if you keep your terms familiar--words most people are familiar and comfortable with.

Tell them the things you enjoy and be honest about your challenges.
