Paleo goes Pop Culture

Filed under: diet — Tags: , , , — Micah Vandegrift @ 4:07 pm

Last week the New York Times ran this piece which profiles more than a few self-proclaimed modern “cavemen” living in New York City who nourish their bodies in a particular way… following the Paleo diet! They also mention how the diet is gaining notoriety through being linked to Crossfit.

How are we to respond to this? Do we celebrate our little niche eating habits getting some much deserved attention? Or will this attention harm the movement, and produce a backlash of “data” and “studies” showing how harmful red meat is for the colon? Isn’t this the same dilemma that is always facing ideas that go against the norm, gain a following and then break onto a larger scale? Thoughts, comments? Do the results speak for themselves?

Exciting to say the least!

  1. Great article! Wish they had included MDA in some of the credits. Are we still on for growing some veggies in Graham’s mom’s yard? What happened to buying a cow?
