Jeb Bush Loves Paleo

Jeb Bush Loves Paleo

I have friends who swear by the Paleo diet and they have lost a lot of weight. I haven’t tried it myself because I don’t like to eat meat, a pretty big component of Paleo.

In this Case I Think a Politician is Telling the Truth

Why would he lie about this. No national security involved at all. My friends on Paleo tell me this is pretty typical weight loss for the diet. Cool!

Jeb Bush credited a low-carb Paleo diet for his 40-pound weight loss in six months. Jeb, a former Florida governor who’s running for president of the United States, said regular exercise also helped him slim down.

Republican presidential candidate Jeb Bush, who lost 40 pounds in 6 months, said his weight loss secrets were exercise and a low-carb Paleo diet.

“I’ve lost, by working out and eating right, 40 pounds in six months,” Bush told KCCI Aug. 2. Jeb, whose full name is John Ellis Bush, began following a low-carb Paleo diet at the suggestion of his son, George P. Bush.

Jeb, 62, is so thrilled with his weight loss he urged his son, Jeb Bush Jr., to adopt the Paleo diet. The Paleo diet has a huge celebrity following, including country superstar Tim McGraw, who lost 40 pounds with the low-carb Paleo diet and CrossFit workouts.

The Paleo diet is an alcohol-free eating plan that emphasizes high-quality animal proteins, healthy fats, non-starchy vegetables, and excludes gluten, sugar, dairy, legumes, and processed foods.

The 6-foot-4 Jeb did not say how much he weighs, but he no longer has a chubby face or double chin, and his once puffy stomach is now flat, Celebrity Health & Fitness reported.
