Paleo Diet Ranked “America’s Best”

…according to Woman’s World magazine in the August 12, 2013, issue. This was the cover story, based on a survey of 9,000 dieters by Consumer Reports. CR asked them to rate famous weight-loss plans, and the paleo diet earned “sky-high satisfaction scores.”

I only bring this to your attention because I’d never heard of this and thought I was following the issue closely.

The WW article mentions Dr. Loren Cordain and has quotes from Amy Kubal, RD, and Dr. Steffan Lindeberg.

You may remember earlier this year that U.S. News and World Report ranked the paleo diet #31 in its “Best Diets Overall” category. Quite a difference of opinion.

  1. Woman’s World? Awww c’mon Steve!

    Haven’t you heard? The Paleo RD is no longer paleo herself.

  2. Hi, Evelyn.
    I guess you’re referring to Amy Kubal’s blog post about her anorexia nervosa:

    I read that again and don’t see any renunciation of the paleo diet.

    Her story does tie in with some of your recent comments about restrictive eating patterns since the paleo diet gives you lots to restrict (dairy, grains, legumes, over-processed foods, etc). IIRC, about a year ago you pointed out one of the prominent paleo women looked anorexic. Maybe that was Amy.

    I have a soft spot in my heart for Woman’s World magazine because they covered my Low-Carb Mediterranean diet a few years ago. The journalist did an amazingly professional job interviewing me. I’m always a bit hesitant to get involved with journalists because they so often get things wrong.


    • I can certainly understand the soft spot, but WW is somewhat of a joke with it’s new secret magic diet every week.

      As to Amy, yes it was her, and she eats oatmeal for breakfast every day. :p
