We Must Stand Up For Integrity And Authenticity From Paleo Food Companies

As the popularity of Paleo and low-carb continues to grow (these were the top two most popular diet search terms on Google in 2014) in the coming years, companies are closely watching the trends and attempting to capitalize on the positive association consumers are having with these diets that are actually improving the health of the people who are going on them. The way they are doing this is by providing products and services that fit within the framework of the diet approach they are associating themselves with. That’s most certainly a savvy marketing strategy from a business standpoint, but these companies are going to have to be honest enough to adhere to the dictates of what Paleo and low-carb actually mean if they are going to choose to use those specific terms.

Unfortunately, there are many businesses who are making products using the names of these diets that simply don’t care about you or your health. They’re only in it for the money. It is our duty as adherents and advocates for these nutritional approaches to stand up for integrity and authenticity in the ingredients used by these companies making products that fit within these particular lifestyles. Just as I shared in this recent blog post chiding the Atkins Nutritionals company for attempting to co-opt and redefine what low-carb is all about, one of my friends in the Paleo community is doing the same thing with a company claiming their food is “Paleo Approved.”

Her name is Adrienne Navarro from “The Primal Nurse” blog and the primary target of her concern is a company based out of Fort Worth, Texas called Personal Trainer Food which touts their “98% No Gluten” (that’s kinda oddball–why not 100%?!) “Paleo approved” meals. Upon closer examination of the ingredients that make up these meals, Adrienne saw they use so many inferior ingredients in their foods (scroll down to page 6 to see the full ingredients for each item) that are very clearly NOT Paleo. This isn’t even about perfectionism (which Adrienne and many Paleo peeps abhor), but a blatant disregard for what that word is supposed to mean. Let’s take a closer look at a sample breakfast, lunch, and dinner meal that is offered up as Paleo in these meals:

BREAKFAST – Western Omelet + Breakfast Sausage

CLICK HERE TO SEE ENLARGED VIEW

LUNCH – Mesquite Grilled Chicken Breast

CLICK HERE TO SEE ENLARGED VIEW

SUPPER – Spicy Breaded Chicken Breast

CLICK HERE TO SEE ENLARGED VIEW

OMG! Did you see what they put into these products they are marketing as Paleo? Let’s go over a few of the most concerning on the list–skim milk, butter-flavored oil made with trans fats, soybean oil and other soy-based ingredients, xanthum gum, pasteurized processed cheese, boneless skinless chicken breast, partially hydrogenated cottonseed oil, enriched wheat flour (WHAT?!), and a whole lot more. Are you freaking kidding me? How in the world can these people claim their meals are anything close to Paleo? Adrienne wanted to know the answer to that question, so she wrote on their Facebook wall with the following bizarre exchange:


So their argument is since they eliminate sugars and starches, it makes their food okay to call “Paleo approved” right there on the front of their website. Other than the fact that is a bald faced lie because the ingredients list they provide of the foods they offer include both sugars and starches, there’s so much more to Paleo than this. If you are strict Paleo, then there is no dairy–which they admitted to Adrienne is “not Paleo”–included (and they use lower quality dairy ingredients in most of their dishes). But let’s take a look at their “highest quality ingredients” defense with TV dinners being the measuring stick for determining whether the ingredients meet this standard or not. Yeah no. Paleo above everything else represents a real, whole foods way of fueling your body and there are very few ingredients that live up to this criteria in these meals. Words mean things and Paleo is Paleo, but this is not.

The Personal Trainer Food representative who responded to Adrienne noted that they are merely a “transition program to help people learn to eat the right way.” If you are doing that in a general nutrition sense, then there would certainly be nothing wrong with that. But what Adrienne and others in the Paleo community are most disturbed about is the overt use of the phrase “Paleo approved” making it look like this is something you would eat if you are following Paleo–but it’s not even close! Additionally, they seem more obsessed about weight loss than they are about health and that’s a decidedly NOT Paleo thing, too. They believe these meals they deliver are helping people get healthier, but the dirty secret they’re not telling people is these ingredients are still providing triggers to people with an autoimmune condition and/or are sensitive to grains, soy, sugars and starches. If you’re gonna tout quality ingredients, then just use real food ingredients as Adrienne outlined.

In the end, this company merely dug in their heels thinking they are doing nothing wrong and swore up and down they are helping people get healthy eating their meals. While I certainly agree it can be challenging trying to do things well when you first start eating a clean Paleo, what they have done is taken the term and redefined it to mean what they want it to mean. As my friend Dr. William Davis is fond of saying, “Taking something bad and replacing it with something less bad doesn’t mean it’s good.” That’s exactly what we have going on here.

I find it particularly amusing that they took such great offense that Adrienne left them “negative comments” that would discourage people from finding benefit in their plan. Ummmm, no, she was merely stating that if you’re going to call this Paleo then it better darn well be Paleo. Why is this such a difficult concept for them to grasp? Well, if they didn’t want the public to know about their deception exposed by Adrienne’s Facebook post, then perhaps a full blog post about it on one of the most viewed nutritional health blogs in the world will be even better.

As Adrienne so eloquently put it, “Please, don’t call this Paleo.” If you agree, then perhaps they need to hear from hundreds maybe even thousands more of us. Let’s all go share our thoughts about this issue with them on their Facebook page, Twitter wall, Pinterest pins, and by calling them toll-free at (800) 273-1686. Be extremely polite, but firm in your request that they please stop marketing their products as Paleo. Again, we as individuals in this community must stand up for integrity and authenticity from any company purporting to be Paleo, low-carb, primal or any other term with a definition so that the term doesn’t become watered down and meaningless. Let me know in the comments section below if you hear back from the company.

For 2015, Please Don’t Make Your New Year’s Resolution About Weight Loss

We’re already over a week in to yet another new year and you know what that means for tens upon tens of millions of Americans–making New Year’s resolutions to make some kind of change in their lives! According to the latest statistics from researchers at the University of Scranton published in the January 2014 issue of the Journal of Clinical Psychology, just under half of all Americans (45 percent) make a New Year’s resolution with only an abysmal 8 percent of them succeeding at whatever it is they have resolved to do (3 out of 4 people don’t make it past one week, so that New Year’s resolution is most likely already toast by now). Not surprisingly, the #1 thing people want to accomplish when the calendar switches over to a new year on January 1st is to lose weight as a means for getting healthy. While it’s culturally acceptable to obsess over lost pounds on the scale as a measurement for how successful you are in your pursuit of health, I’m going to suggest something completely different than anything else you’ve ever heard for your New Year’s resolution in 2015. Here it is:

Please don’t make your New Year’s resolution about weight loss.

Before you think I’ve gone off the deep end by suggesting this, hear me out. My call for NOT making it your New Year’s resolution to lose weight may sound a bit strange considering my journey to creating the “Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb” brand to begin with started on January 1, 2004 when I went on the Atkins diet and famously lost 180 pounds that year. It was a life-changing experience that inspired me to create this blog, my podcasts, and my books, but I do regret one thing about that period in my life.

I hate that I put so much heavy emphasis on the weight loss aspect of what happened to me and not enough attention on the critical importance of being healthy. In the years that have followed over the past decade, I’ve come to the conclusion that being healthy and getting all of your relevant health markers where they need to be is a whole lot more important than looking for some arbitrary number on the scale to validate your nutritional choices. Yes, weight is a health marker you should pay attention to, but it’s not the be-all, end-all one that it’s made out to be and it’s high time people realize that fact at last.

Our culture has drilled this idea into our heads that to feel accomplished in doing something positive for your health, you must see it show up as weight lost on the scale or have some grand physical transformation happen on the outside that takes you from having a keg belly to a six-pack. Anything less than this nearly unattainable measure for success is viewed as a complete failure in the eyes of most people which is likely why would-be health success stories give up at the very moment they were seeing incredible improvements beginning to happen in their health. My regular readers are aware that I’ve gotten my fair share of negative comments and criticism about my weight over the years and I used to fall into the trap of thinking I had to keep pushing my body to pursue a perfection that was likely never going to come. Not anymore.

Because of the significant metabolic damage that has been done from decades of consuming crappy carbage that has left me severely insulin resistant, I now have to work harder and be more vigilant in my diet to be where I am in my health today than probably most people. I’m totally cool with that and you should be too if you don’t get to that level of perfection others may think you need to attain to have done any good for yourself. Let’s bring an end to this silly idea that being healthy means a lean body and if you don’t get skinny eating the way you do that there is something inherently wrong with that particular diet. Who in the world came up with that nonsensical line of thinking anyway?

The reality is you can and will get healthy on the inside eating in a way that keeps inflammation low, gives you steady blood sugar and insulin levels, and nourishes your body with the nutrient-density that can only come from consuming real, whole foods. Even if that never manifests itself into the amount of weight loss on the scale you wanted it to, who really cares? By all intents and measures, if you eat well and become healthy, isn’t that all that really matters in the end? Absolutely and nobody can convince me otherwise no matter how much mocking they do.

Because I share so openly about my weight and health markers on a regular basis (read my latest update from October 2014 here), I suppose it opens me up to a tremendous amount of ridicule and scorn from those who think I should look a certain way if I am going to talk about health living. But I’ve got a reality check for anyone who might think this in case you’ve conveniently forgotten. In 2004, I weighed in at 410 pounds, was on three prescription medications, and didn’t care a bit in the world about what I was putting in my pie hole. But those days of 16 cans of Coca-Cola, 2 boxes of Little Debbie Snack Cakes, big plates of pasta and bread, and so much more are ancient history. I’m a new man today thanks to my primaleo ketogenic lifestyle.

Flash forward to over a decade later here in 2015 and I currently weigh below 300 pounds (I’ve kept well over 100 pounds off for over a decade!), I don’t take ANY drugs for any ailments, and food quality matters more to me now than it ever has before. Does this sound like a man who hasn’t changed and is more unhealthy now than ever before? Not hardly. I am no longer the hopeless man with an inevitable fate I once was. I’ve been redeemed thanks to livin’ la vida low-carb and that motivates me to help others get healthy too…no matter what their weight is now or in the future!

I’ve made it a general rule to always be completely forthright and honest with my readers and that’s never gonna change. Again, I know this transparency opens me up to major criticism from people who think I should look better on the outside than I do. But at the end of the day, I don’t care about that as much as I care about maintaining the incredible health my low-carb diet has given me in spades. That is what motivates me to continue on this journey, sharing with others through my blog, books and podcasts, and helping them change their lives too.

It’s why I implore anyone who is attempting to go on a New Year’s resolution in 2015 to not obsess about losing weight and to instead because passionate about consuming real, whole foods that nourish your body made up of ingredients that keep your blood sugar and insulin levels as steady as possible. When you do that, only good things can happen for your health and you’ll live a better life as a result. Happy new year everyone and I wish you well in your personal pursuit of a healthy lifestyle! As always, let me know how I can help you anytime by e-mailing me at livinlowcarbman@charter.net.

One of the newer names and faces making an impact in the Paleo blogosphere in recent years is a Portland, Oregon-based mom named Kelly Bejelly from the “A Girl Worth Saving” blog and the co-host of the “Listen Up Paleo” podcast she does with Liz McGaw. Kelly is a savvy recipe developer, writer and photographer who was contacted last year by a major publisher who wanted to make her dream of writing a book a reality. That book–Paleo Eats: 111 Comforting Gluten-Free, Grain-Free and Dairy-Free Recipes for the Foodie in You–is now available and Kelly is here today to talk about it.

GET KELLY BEJELLY’S NEW BOOK Paleo Eats:

Listen to hear Kelly and I share about how her diagnosis of pre-diabetes in 2009 woke her up to making a change, the shift she made from being a vegetarian/vegan over to Paleo (thanks to the influence of Mark Sisson), the weight loss and health success overcoming PCOS, anxiety and depression she found making simply changes in her diet, how she has incorporated the healthy habits she has learned with her son, why her recipes are simple and for the masses, and her reaction to many common criticisms and fallacies about Paleo (it’s about having “rock hard abs,” you have to eat grass-fed and organic foods, and you will automatically become very lean when you eat this way), and a lot more. Kelly is an amazingly inspiring story of someone who has changed her life forever thanks to the Paleo diet and is now seeking to help others in their own journey to better health.
