Yeah, I think in someways you are right. It will always be difficult to explain possible benefits of the paleo diet in a short interview for TV. Happy to see his book being put out there though. Maybe a few more will take a look at the diet.

And Arthur De Vany really looked & sounded great for 73, I thought. Told my 66 year old father last night, look at the videos and eat paleo. I remember how my grandparents deteriorated mentally and physically with age. That was and is, with one grandparents remaining, tough to be around. As I told dad, the vitamin D and diet isn't for you, it's for me!

It is a great topic to be featured, it really needs to be discussed to a larger audience. It is a very comprehensive subject and unfortunately I think they missed a great opportunity in the segment. Really it just ended up being the 'whats' of his diet, and no 'whys'. I am fortunate enough to have been on this diet for a while now, and have done a lot of reading on the subject, so I understand the message he's trying to get across. The majority of people however, do not, and are badly misinformed. While he's a great role model for people, I assume that most people watching that segment will think he's just genetically gifted and maybe a bit of a kook.
Don't get me wrong, I think it's a great topic that needs to be brought forward to everybody's sake, I just think they weren't able to sell it to the audience. That being said, I doubt I could have done any better... And yes, I hope to be in such good condition when I am that age...

Saw these videos of long time paleo eater and advocate Arthur De Vany the other day. He discusses his new book about paleo eating.

For 73 years old, De Vany looks fantastic! Hope if I make it to that age I'm just as strong and mentally with it.
