“Paleo Diet” Should Be Avoided, White House Trainer Says

November 3, 2010: 10:30 AM EST

Advocates of the so-called “Paleo Diet” argue that, to stay healthy, humans should only eat foods that Stone Agers ate. That means meat, fish, vegetables and fruits, but not processed foods, and no sugar, dairy, beans, grains and potatoes. But Pres. and Mrs. Obama’s personal trainer Cornell McClellan has his doubts. First, no one really knows what the caveman diet consisted of. But a recent archeological study found evidence that Paleolithic men ate grains and other prepared foods such as roots, vegetables and a form of cracker. And despite its popularity, the Paleo Diet, even when it achieves weight loss, is “not the healthiest diet program,” McClellan says. He agrees with cutting out processed foods, but says a meat-heavy diet that eliminates whole food groups is not recommended for most people.
