Paleo Diet: The Good, Bad, and Ugly! {NEW VIDEO}

I’m talking about FOOD FADS for the next couple of weeks. I’ve written on it before. Now here’s my video.  I don’t have a vendetta against the Paleo Diet. I just think people should know that it’s a fad, that there are good and bad things about it, and that it has little or nothing…

The Paleo Diet…..what is it, really?

Paleo Diet, Debunked!
