Halfstack Highlights Episode 5: PaleoPorn.Net... "It's Food Porn, not Porn Porn!"

Wednesday, April 30, 2014 Sophie Magdalena

Have you ever wondered who it was that first decided the word "diet" meant being conscious of the foods we consume over a certain period of time? Knowing what we now know today about nutrition, health and overall quality of life, wouldn't you like to go back in time and slap that person across the face?

We certainly don't advocate violence at Halfstack, but let's honestly think about this for a second. For as long as most of us can remember, diet fads such as Atkins, The Zone and South Beach have taught us that if you follow a strict set of rules over the course of a few or several weeks, we'll slim down, get fit and then life can resume as normal.

The ridiculous information that has been published and glorified in the media over the span of the last 50-60 years regarding the best way to stay healthy and slim down, it's no surprise the success rate of "dieting" is short lived at best.

Did you know, in 1925 the Lucky Strike cigarette brand launched its "Reach for a Lucky instead of a sweet" campaign to capitalize on nicotine's appetite-suppressing superpowers? It's okay, you can shake your heads in embarrassment too...

In this episode of Halfstack Highlights, I sat down with Marla Sarris [the brainchild behind the delightfully delicious and author of the Paleo popular cookbooks - Pigskin Paleo & Los Paleo] to discuss how Paleo has transformed the lives of her, her husband and her many avid fans. Listen in as she discusses how Paleo differs from the usual diet fads that make their way into mainstream media and how being healthy goes beyond just dieting. Eliminate the word "diet" all together because being healthy is a complete lifestyle change. But not to worry, Marla walks us through how eating healthy is no longer drab and shares some insight on how you can begin implementing Paleo into your own life.
