Some local dietitians say cutting out two major food groups -- grains and dairy -- from your diet isn't a good idea and could lead to a lack of calcium and vitamin D. They also say risk for heart problems may increase if you're not careful about making lean-meat choices.
"I would describe it as a very low-carb diet and low in a lot of nutrients, vitamins and minerals," said Angie Scheetz, registered dietitian and wellness coordinator at the National Institute for Fitness and Sport. "It's not something I would recommend."
This is literally their only arguments: either totally incorrect knowledge about nutrition, or outdated science regarding heart disease. CW nutritionists have got to be the stupidest, least educated "profession" on the face of the planet. I bet if I had a consultation with with Ms. Scheetz, she would tell me to have high fiber cereal with skim milk and a glass of orange juice for breakfast. I guess this morning's paleo breakfast of a three egg omelet with onions, bacon, and peppers with a GIANT salad is way less healthy. It is obvious missing the nutrients that only Total and oxidized cholesterol laden skim milk can provide! Oh, and everyone knows you can ONLY get vitamin C from oranges.
And Angie, it is not a "VERY low-carb diet." Did you even look at the diet? Are you stupid? Can you not read? No, I am seriously asking these questions. At this point I literally have no other explanation. The Paleo diet is a low or high carb as the individual wants it to be.
And I do not normally cuss on this board, but here it goes: fuck you and your "food groups." This is not an argument
on its own. I am getting so sick of hearing this already. If you want to make a "food group" argument, then you're going to have to starting adding the word "because." Since CW nutritionists obviously have the critical thinking skills of a piece of whole grain bread, I will happily demonstrate:
Paleo is bad because it eliminates the grain food group BECAUSE grains are essential to human health BECAUSE....and then you need to list why. Until then, your food group argument is the most asinine thing I have been forced to hear over the years.
IT. IS. NOT. AN. ARGUMENT. It is a mere statement of fact regarding a totally arbitrary and made-up classification of foods. What would happen if the Barcadi family managed to buy off even more members of Congress then they currently own, and they manage to get rum added to the food groups? Would that
get nutritionists to stop and think? Would it take something that
ridiculous to get them to ask questions?
PS - I got plenty of Vitamin D today without drinking a single glass of vitamin D milk. I took walk in the sunshine.
