A few days ago I wrote the post about the Paleolithic diet. This did not go unnoticed. As we say in Danish, “Sanheden er ofte ilde hørt” – which means “Truth is often hard to hear.” I get that if you’re really invested in a certain belief and someone points out that it has flaws, then you’re going to be upset! Well, someone accused me of putting up false data and statistics. I then had to ask this person what exactly they were talking about? Well, this person’s motives became a lot clearer to me after checking out their “research” and recommendations, which showed a slew of misconceptions about the Paleolithic diet, from photos of chocolate chip cookies to asparagus wrapped neatly in strips of bacon. AHEM! I don’t believe this is what they had access to back 10,000 years ago. Do you? We should all be open to new information, ideas and be able to ask ourselves questions, even if it doesn’t jive with what we currently believe in.
Well, aside from that nonsense I came across this interview with James “Lightning” Wilks, who is a high-performing athlete and was chosen for Season 9 of the Ultimate Fighter – UK vs USA. He’s a member of the UFC (Ultimate Fighting Champion) and I love this interview by Katcher from “The Discerning Brute”. Please listen to what James has to say about the Paleolithic diet! “Wilks claims that two weeks after he stopped eating meat, he lifted more weight than ever in his life.”
