Twitter has constantly been awash with countless tweets from people who have seen success with the paleo diet. People from every corner of the globe have been tweeting about how their new found passions for paleo food have made them feel better, lose weight, and increase energy. But as always, the loudest voices on twitter are the celebrity tweeters. So, who are the top five twitter celebrities who are lending their 125 characters to spread awareness of the mighty paleo diet?
5. Miley Cyrus (@Miley Ray Cyrus)
The infamous daughter of Billy Ray Cyrus attributes her excellent body and high energy levels to her decision to give up gluten and pursue a way of eating more in line with the paleo diet. She tweeted in April 2012: “everyone should try no gluten for a week! The change in your skin, phyisical and mental health is amazing! U won’t go back!” Typos aside, Miley’s tweeted advice is right on point.
4. Lebron James (@KingJames)
The NBA player lost a huge amount of weight with his 67 day long paleo diet experiment this summer. He was quoted as saying “I had no sugars, no dairy, I had no carbs. All I ate was meat, fish, veggies and fruit. That’s it. For 67 straight days.” At the end of the 67 days, he tweeted a photo showing off his new paleo body looking good in a suave suit.
3. Phil Mickelson (@pmickelsonfans)
Golfer Phil Mickelson’s paleo success story has been all over twitter. The pro golfer told the world that he lost “a ton” of weight on the paleo diet, and twitter has been all over his inspiring story of personal growth through the benefits of eating like a caveman.
2. Matthew McConaughey (@_McConaughey)
Matthew supposedly “commits to a paleo diet 90% of the time”. He has been vocal abut the benefits of the paleo diet on twitter, including taking the time to verbally bash those who have come out against the diet. In late January, he tweeted the confusing “Paleo and I quit sugar”. Not sure what Matthew means by that, but every time a celebrity mentions paleo, more people find out about the diet and how good it is for them, so thanks…. I guess?
1. Jack Osbourne. (@JackOsbourne)
Jack famously announced to the world through an ABC article in 2012 that he was adopting the paleo diet for its anti inflammatory qualities. Jack was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis at age 26, just after becoming a father to his daughter; Pearl Osbourne. Jack’s hope is that removing gluten, sugars and dairy from his diet will reduce inflammation, and help him to overcome his MS.
On Twitter, Jack often shared his favourite paleo recipes with the world. In October 2014, he tweeted a video showcasing his wife’s paleo pancake recipe.
