Last week, Jimmy Moore had this to say about the paleo diet in his Diane Sanfilippo podcast post (emphasis mine):
[L]ast night there was a feature story on ABC’s “Nightline” on the Paleo movement with people like Robb Wolf and Art De Vany sharing what it means to implement the Paleo lifestyle change nutritionally and physically. WAY COOL exposure for this subset of low-carb living that I sense will only continue to grow and grow in the years to come.
Now, my undergraduate degree is in math (and I like to quibble), so I had an issue with the term “subset” (as you can see from the comment discussion I had with Jimmy).
Introducing my diet comparison chart
This interchange prompted me to do something that I’ve been meaning to do for a while: compare and contrast the basic tenets of low-carb, paleo, and Weston Price diets (all three of which are, in my opinion, vast improvements over the standard American diet).
Click on the image at right or this diet comparison link to download a PDF of my first pass. I welcome your comments to improve it.
Caveats: This is a one-pager, not a thesis. I wanted to create a simple overview, not address all the intricacies of the three diets.
So take a look and see what you think. Let me know what’s good, bad, or indifferent in the comments below or via email. Thanks!!
