I’ll admit, I can get pretty discouraged with the pace of change in the health and nutrition world. When I see yet another article in a mainstream magazine or newspaper about how bad saturated fat is for us or why we should avoid red meat because it causes cancer I feel like we’re not making much progress at all.
But I know that isn’t true. Google searches for the Paleo diet have increased exponentially over the past few years. It is being covered in major news stories around the world. And more and more physicians and health care professionals are beginning to embrace it.
That’s why I was encouraged to see that Mark Sisson, Robb Wolf and myself were included in Greatist.com’s Top 100 Most Influential People in Health and Fitness in 2012, along with Dr. Oz, Dr. Weil, Dr. Mercola, Dr. Hyman, Tim Ferriss, Jamie Oliver and Michael Pollan.
This is a fantastic sign that the message of ancestral health and nutrient-dense food is starting to penetrate mainstream consciousness. There’s no way I would have made this list without your participation, advocacy and support. Thank you for helping to spread the message!
