      what a fab can-do attitude she has. I enjoyed the discussion too about how important it is to weight train, esp. for chicks. It’s virtually impossible to bulk up like a female bodybuilder without copious amounts of crazy steroids, and she’s right that it’s cool to look sexy & be strong. I work out regularly with weights, and people are floored at how freakishly strong I am given that I’m such a petite person. I guess I’m the opposite of Mark Sisson in that I want to BE freakishly strong just not look like I am. :)

      First, as I commented on your LLVLC Show page, I absolutely loved the interview you did with Sarah Fragoso. On the subject of Paleo diets, Fox News, being the corporate sponsored morons they are, did a short TV segment ridiculing the Paleo diet on June 25th. Their very unscientific caricature of the Paleo diet was so erroneous that I could spend hours highlighting how asinine the whole thing was. I already left a post on Robb Wolf’s website about it, but could you get in touch with Robb and inform him directly? With the mountains of emails he gets, he might miss mine, given that I am not a high profile personality, but I know he will see yours. Here is the link to the video I am referring to:


      This level of stupidity and misinformation has to be combated.

      • I’m sure it wasn’t just Fox News…I’ve seen this nonsense everywhere.

        • Lawrence Louis


          I agree Fox News is certainly not alone in their misconceptions about Paleo and low carb diets. But in this case, it is Fox News that is reporting this nonsense. I know U.S. News and World Reports also ranked the Paleo Diet the lowest on their list of popular diets, even lower than the Atkins diet, which usually gets the brunt of criticisms from the mainstream know nothings. However, what angered me about this Fox News segment was how idiotic the criticisms were. I mean you have two supposedly educated doctors talk about humans living CONCURRENTLY with dinosaurs!? Then you have one doctor posit that prehistoric man lived mostly NOT on animal protein and fat, but MOSTLY on nuts, berries, and gather plants. Early man wouldn’t have made it this far if their diet mostly consisted of just nuts, berries, and plants.

          The mainstream media does a lot of slanted reporting against low carb and Paleo diets, and understandably so, since they get a lot of corporate sponsorship whose interests would be hurt by the science that backs up both low carb and Paleo diets. But the level of inanity this video segment displays is just flabbergasting.

          • True. They were indeed idiots and even mispronounced what the diet is called. DORKS! :)

          • I don’t mind living on nuts, berries and plants (OK, yes I do) but could you imagine paleo people living on that in ice age Europe? I live past 60o North, and if I imagine what there’s to live on here that’s BOTH plant based and wasn’t brought in by neolithic farmers or later, I virtually starve.

      Thank you for having Sarah on your show! She has such great energy, what a great spokesperson for this way of life.
      I have been over to her site and watched on video (How to make paleo mayo) and she is so great with her kids too! Those are some happy and healthy kids.
      As always, thank you Jimmy for all that you do.


      • THANKS Stephanie! Sarah’s an easy interview because she really knows her stuff. :)
