"Paleo, which is one of the Only "Diets" (lifestyle) which encourages all natural and low sugar nutrition, was ranked last behind even the "slim fast" diet in the US news and World report diet rankings. Why?"
In my opinion, just like everything else, it's all about the
If more and more people start switching to natural foods rather than chemical foods and began curing their addiction to processed sugary foods, how are major corporations, most which are linked with government, going to make their money?
Switching to natural foods will inevitably decrease the amount of illness and disease in our society due to a decrease in consumption of chemical ingredients. Lowering overall intake of high sugar foods will inevitably lower the obesity rate since high sugar foods have played a major factor in the explosion of the obesity epidemic due to their hormonal effects on the body.
This means significantly less money going into our food industry, medical industry, and pharmaceutical industry which are three of the biggest profit generating machines in the world. Paleo is far from the worst "diet", in fact it represents change in a more positive direction away from ingesting chemical ingredients.

Anonymous female: "They shouldn't even use the word "diet" with a diet you think you get to the point you want and then you can go back to your old ways because you completed the "diet" it has to be a lifestyle thing that never ends. That's what people need to realize cause they're not gonna get full results until it becomes their lifestyle."
TFG: absolutely! which is why I put "diet" in quotes.
Anonymous female 2: "100% agree! The word diet needs to be re-defined. It's been used far too much as a marketing tool, and people don't understand what it means at all! Paleo wouldn't even have to be a thing if every food available to us was actually made of food!"
Anonymous male: "Love the Paleo Lifestyle, hate the last place status..."
Anonymous male 2: "Couldn't agree with you more! I've tried telling folks that I lost 50 or so lbs in 6 months by simply eating meat, green veggies with no limits besides my hunger and they look at me like I'm crazy. I also agree that big pharma doesn't want folks to be healthy but rather take their drugs to suppress sickness by eating their crappy processed food. Keep up the good work!"
TFG: thanks "name" you def did it the smart way. That's how I lost 50 pounds previously as well.
