ReasonTV's Sunday Yak Show Counter-Programing: The Paleo Manifesto Author John Durant

|

It's once again time to ignore the regular Sunday morning yak-fests with a long-form ReasonTV video from our archive. Here is a recent interview with John Durant, author of The Paleo Manifesto: Ancient Wisdom for Lifelong Health.

The original text from the Dec. 11, 2013 release is below: 

"When I'm talking to a libertarian and I make the point that the USDA food pyramid is not god's truth, they're like, 'Oh, right, of course it isn't,' says John Durant, author of The Paleo Manifesto: Ancient Wisdom for Lifelong Health. "It doesn't require a lot of persuasion that the official guidelines on diet are wrong."

Durant's book tells the story of how he discovered his inner hunter-gatherer, and it offers practical guidelines for how to transition to the meat-heavy low-carb diet favored by our Paleolithic ancestors—and a surprising number of libertarians.

Durant, who blogs at HunterGatherer.com and is also a proponent of barefoot jogging, was interviewed by the New York Times' John Tierney on December 4, 2013 at an event held at New York City's Museum of Sex, which was sponsored by the Reason Foundation.
