Spreading the Good Word on Blisstree

Disclaimer: I would never ever EVER refer to paleo as a “fad diet” – and frankly, I don’t even feel 100% comfortable referring to the way I eat as paleo because that term has so many varied definitions. However, when a writer acquaintance asked me for a quote about paleo – what it is, why it’s great – it seemed like a good opportunity to spread the word in a more mainstream forum.

Here it is: The Blisstree round-up on fad diets. I’m not totally in love with the fact that my quote follows The Cookie Diet slide, but damn! the hunk of meat they used to illustrate my quote is way tastier-looking than the stupid cookie.

And maybe, just maybe, someone who thinks they want to try one of those terrible fad diets will think paleo sounds interesting and do a little more research… to learn it’s not a fad, and to learn how they can thrive on dino-chow power.

    Wow, you are the only person in that slide show who was 100% positive about her diet. The cookie diet person even said she's now doing something closer to paleo.

    I love how everyone else is like "this diet sucks, but it made me a little bit skinnier" and you are like "this diet turned me into a shiny-haired, PR-machine!!!!" Awesome. 🙂

    You made a great spokesperson. Love that the emphasis is on strength and health, not just losing weight.
