Celebrity chef and paleo diet enthusiast Pete Evans has fired up on social media about reports on his controversial health claims.
Last year, Evans landed himself in hot water over his comments on toxicities in sunscreen and his recipe for baby broth that experts deemed highly dangerous.
Now, he has lashed out on social media and slammed reporters for writing “fake news” about his paleo diet.
“Thank you to all the ‘F grade’ journalists that continue to put out FAKE NEWS stories about Paleo or myself,” he wrote on Instagram.
“You do make me laugh when someone tells me of your lies, but I gotta say, I for one am one of your biggest fans and would love to give you all a big hug & cook you a delicious meal to say thanks.
“Please keep doing what you are doing, as we could never have reached this many people as quickly as we have done without you.”
Thank you to all the "F grade" journalists that continue to put out FAKE NEWS stories about Paleo or myself.Each and every time you create a lie, in your poorly researched article or sensationalist headline, you continually promote a paleo & low carb, healthy fat lifestyle approach to an even larger audience than we could have reached ourselves!Thanks to you, more people are becoming interested in what Paleo and LCHF is about, and they will have heard of someone that has reclaimed their health by adopting these simple principles and will do more research into the topic than you have ever done.You do make me laugh when someone tells me of your lies, but I gotta say, I for one am one of your biggest fans and would love to give you all a big hug & cook you a delicious meal to say thanks.Please keep doing what you are doing, as we could never have reached this many people as quickly as we have done without you.If you are interested in speaking and researching the TRUTH, then there is a ton of medical experts to speak to, that are getting amazing results by using paleo and LCHF as one of their tools for their patients…but again that might not fit your job description as a modern journalist.The TRUTH….1. We promote breast milk as the number 1 form of nutrition for babies! 2. We do not promote drinking the milk of any other animal as it can cause so many health issues, however if you were to choose to drink it then camels milk has been shown to create the least problems. 3. We promote a healthy relationship to the sun to get adequate vitamin D levels and when choosing a sunscreen, then choose the least toxic. 4. The addition of fluoride to your families water supply should be a choice that families make.5. We promote an abundance of vegetables (low carb) with a small to moderate amount of well sourced animal protein from land and or sea animals and enough natural fat to satiate with fermented veg and broths for good gut health. Basically meat and 3 veg!6. You have a choice everyday of what you choose to eat. 7. Manu and I are great mates! 8. The writers for Womans day/weekly, daily mail/telegraph mamamia…hilarious???
He goes on to explain that paleo is mostly a diet of “meat and 3 veg” and calls out magazines for printing misleading claims about him and his fellow ‘My Kitchen Rules’ host Manu Feildel.
“Manu and I are great mates!” he said in response to reports they were feuding.
