"The Farmer & The City Girl
Podcast Episode 007 - The Grain Farmer vs The Paleo Diet, Fad
Diets, the Oprah vs the Cattlemen Issue and the Food Evolution"
Once upon a time there was a
girl who needed a healthy recipe for dinner. She looked at all the
diet cook books in her pantry and thought “hmmm, I wonder if fad
diets affect the farmers.”
So she asked one.
In this episode, Rob and Carrie
are chatting about diets, they focus mostly on the Paleo Diet but
touch on other fads as well.
- How Rob feels about something
like the Paleo Diet which is grain free as a grain
- His thoughts on a previous
experience with the Pork Producer Association.
- How farmers “agvocate” (or
don’t) against fad diets.
- Food portions, what part of a
diet is the most important for losing weight, American clothes
sizes compared to Asian clothes sizes.
- And Rob tells a funny story
about eating butter in Japan.
- They talk about the “blindly
follow Oprah/Dr. Oz” mentality and how the modern age has brought
about a need for information and research.
- And then they wonder do
consumers really want lean meat? Or has the food evolution changed
- Farmers: Do you
know of past examples where someone famous/influencer has made a
bold opinion that affected food markets.
- Consumers: What
eating habits have you changed that has affected you in a positive
or negative way? And what fad diets have you tried, was it because
your friends turned you on to it?
- How many of you loved (or still
love) the McRib????
