Diet Study

So just read this study online ranking diets. Seems like the Paleo diet ranked last in every category. I know I have been following it and have had great results, and feel great in my workouts and just throughout the day Here is a link to the article I read.

http://www.foxnews.com/health/2011/0...ts/?test=faces (wfs)

Just wanted to see what other peoples reactions were.

Re: Diet Study

I want to know what metrics they used to judge the Ornish Diet as better than Paleo for diabetics and prediabetics. I also want to know what numbers they used to say that Paleo is bad for heart health.

From the article that the OP's article referenced:

http://health.usnews.com/best-diet/a...-we-rated-them [wfs]

US News basically wrote up uninformed summaries of the diets to be ranked, then sent the summaries to 22 "recognized experts", which were then asked to rank the diet summaries.

The diets were NOT selected or ranked based on actual results or peer-reviewed studies. They were ranked by the following list of experts:

http://health.usnews.com/best-diet/experts [wfs]

This was not a "study" by any means, and certainly not scientific. It was a popularity contest of secondhand summaries decided by people ( mainly nutritionists, but a few medical doctors ) who went to school when fat phobia was the latest revolutionary idea.

Yea that is what it sounded like, a popularity contest. I love how in the article it mentions that there just hasn't been enough info on things like the paleo diet (i.e. time to see its effects) yet one of the commenters on the article say "are you crazy the paleo diet has been tested for over 2.8 million years"
