The Livin' La Vida Low-Carb Show With Jimmy Moore

Mar 21, 2018

Weston A. Price Foundation President Sally Fallon Morrell and Ancestral diet researcher and author Dr. Loren Cordain are our interview guests today in Episode 1374 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

Today we continue with an LLVLC Classic episode featuring Sally Fallon Morrell and Dr. Loren Cordain facing off with their views on the Paleo Diet. After Weston A. Price Foundation (WAPF) President Sally Fallon Morrell received numerous requests from WAPF members about the differences between the diet her organization promotes and low-carb as well as Paleo diets, Sally decided to address it directly in her “President’s Message” in the Summer 2013 Wise Traditions newsletter. What she wrote in that newsletter upset a lot of people primarily from the Paleo community who support the work of the WAPF but didn’t understand why she chose to single out a narrowly-defined interpretation of Paleo for her criticism. We also bring you a very enlightening conversation with the man at the heart of a recent controversy that has been all the talk in the Paleo community over the past couple of months. He is Dr. Loren Cordain, the world-famous Colorado State University professor, evolutionary diet researcher and bestselling author of The Paleo Diet, and he is here to defend the diet he has helped put on the map over the past two decades.

Listen in as Jimmy and Sally share why she has major concerns with the use of the term “Paleo,” her problem with the heavy promotion of lean meats as espoused by Loren Cordain and Robb Wolf, whether she has heard of other members of the Paleo community who promote many of the principles of the WAPF, what would make her more comfortable with the idea of Paleo, and a whole lot more! Then stay tuned for Dr. Cordain's response about the recent controversy surrounding Paleo, what he thinks about Morell’s criticisms, how he changed his mind about lean meats and revised his original book to reflect this, the clear support he has stated over and over again for saturated fat, the natural macronutrient make-up of our hunter-gatherer ancestors, his concern about the lack of scientific credentials by Morell, and a whole lot more! If you’ve been following this issue in the Paleo blogosphere, then you won’t want to miss Dr. Cordain’s exclusive response to the concerns expressed by the President of The Weston A. Price Foundation.
