Good luck with that. We're not designed to be vegans.

That may be! Not 100% sold on this myself but I am pretty much certain we're also not designed to eat like many of us do. I am just trying to eliminate many things from my diet which may have contributed to or even caused many of my past and ongoing health problems.

As always I will share my experiences here truthfully as long as others have an interest.

Seriously, good luck Marc. Good on you for making a conscious change in your diet for your health. I wish you would come back to the meat side, though.

Thank God I'm not the only person on Earth who realizes this. We're built to eat meat. Lots of meat.

Enjoy your grass, Marc. Gross.

I had a big plate of salty, fatty beef for dinner and ham & eggs for breakfast. I have a 29-inch waist.

Has anyone ever noticed that all the animals that eat plants have long necks, eyes on the side of their head, and chew in a rotary motion? Deer, cows, horses, etc. Now compare that to us. We stand tall on two legs with prehensile hands, short necks, eyes in the front of our head, chew vertically with incisor teeth, and the digestive system of a carnivore. Does that sound like an animal built to eat grass? No. We're built like hunters. We're designed to eat meat. Lots of meat.

When the hunting is bad we can choke down a few plants to tide us over. For me, hunting is never bad because there's an awesome grocery store 20 minutes from my house.

I rarely waste my time in vegetarian conversations. It's astounding to me that people are convinced we're supposed to be eating all kinds of vegetables. I can't make an ounce of sense out of it. I don't see any evidence of that at all.

thank-you.gif Rookie Doyenne. YouTube link post attempts rarely worked (for me, anyway) so I stopped trying. I started to watch it on my phone... wound up doing the whole hour and a half. Couldn't put it down!

Actually it's still playing in another open tab and I'm listening as I bounce around on here; little or none is unfamiliar, and it goes back a generation for me. A child with autism drove years of research into everything about everything and hard science was the litmus for understanding or accepting anything (I was not the scientist in the family but I benefited from a rigorous learning environment.)

Money, marketing, lobbying, corporate donations to medical schools..... lots of problems. And there's always those examples of folks who break all "the rules", never get sick and enjoy longevity...... obfuscating dominant trends otherwise.

I don't believe as consumers we readily get anything near unbiased, honest, accurate, qualitative information. It's there to be found but with considerable effort.

Forgot to say..... a YouTube link should work the same as any other website, if you just highlight and copy the url in the top bar.

Dr Shawn Baker is a world-record holding athlete in his 50's who went on a pure red meat diet 3 years ago:

Mark Sisson does Keto and is an athlete well into his 60's. This guy has some great health and fitness info.

Dr. Paul Saladino is the leading authority on the science and application of the carnivore diet. He has used this diet to reverse autoimmunity, chronic inflammation and mental health issues in hundreds of patients, many of whom had been told their conditions were untreatable. In addition to his personal podcast, Fundamental Health, he can be found featured on numerous podcasts including The Minimalists, The Model Health Show, Bulletproof Radio, The Dr. Gundry Podcast, The Ben Greenfield Podcast, Dr. Mercola, Health Theory, Mark Bell’s Power Project, and many others. He has also appeared on The Doctors TV show and will release his first book in 2020 titled, “The Carnivore Code: Unlocking the Secrets to Optimal Health by Returning to our Ancestral Diet.”

Brett Aquila (Me!)

I'm 48 years old. I have been training under a professional fitness coach 6 - 7 days a week for 19 months, and I've been an athlete my entire life. I climb mountains. I'm in the best shape of my life by far. A normal workout for me, one I do once a week, is to carry a 45-pound backpack up (and then back down, don't forget) a 3,300 ft mountain....before breakfast. That's almost 3 Empire State buildings! I do strength training, muscular endurance training, yoga, and a lot of low-intensity cardio.

My ma is quite concerned about my diet, 95% of which consists of eggs, ham, chicken, and beef. I visited for the first time in about 8 months at Christmas and she was shocked at how much younger I'm looking these days. She's still not sure what to think of me eating a carnivorous diet, but I'm sure. It's hard to argue with results.
