Just watched this video that Jimmy More tweeted
What do you guys think?
Did Weston A Price really die of heart disease at age 58?

What a retarded video. I'm sure it's just as easy (if not easier!) to find a bunch of miserable looking veg*ns and pit them against folks like Sisson, Wolf, and the host of other new young paleo authors.
You can't trust anything from a vegan source whether it be The China Study book or a YouTube video. They have an agenda and that is to stop people from eating animals. Jimmy Moore's recent weight-loss scares them, which is why they're attacking him now.
Also, as Robin and Stephen pointed out, Weston Price died at the age of 78. Wolfgang Lutz died at 97 and Richard Berstein is alive and kicking as a type one diabetic at nearly 80, which is really something for a type I diabetic.
What we don't hear about though, are the causes of deaths of prominent vegans such as Andreas Moritz, who died "mysteriously" at the age of 58. What happend to him? No one will say. It's swept under the rug because it jeopardizes their cause. Animals are more important than humans. They'll sacrifice their lives AND YOURS for it.
I'll wager that there are people who look like shit on every diet.
Even if Vegan was healthier, propaganda like that does not put me in favor of the approach. Stuff like that should make me think the worst of Vegans, but I have already seen some videos by Durian and I don't think you can get worse than that.
They haven't seen Mark Sisson or Robb Wolf, have they?
The vegetarians I've met in my life have all been extremely depressed and seriously overweight.
OK I am confused. The healthiest people I have seen are Sardinians and South France people. I have lived in both areas. In those areas they eat a lot of veggie, a lot of fruit (Sardianians don't in the Winter months though) and very little meat BUT they eat red meat, pork etc. They don't eat meat regularly but when they do it's quite the spectacle. They also don't limit food. They have desert, wine etc. BUT everything is made from scratch including breads, sweets etc.
In both places I have never thought of diet or restricting my food. In Sardania I lost 17 pounds in 2 mths without even thinking about it. I walked a lot, ate tons of fruit, etc. SO what gives??? It can't be the carbs or the meat or the bread........ what it is that's making us fat in North America?
What should a health expert look like?! I guess these guys should be the top health experts ever. alt text
(they eat bread OMG and meat! and they are two hundred times better looking than anyone in that video)
Not like these skinny awkward fairly unattractive people who eat a restrictive diet
I like men with a little gray hair, but sorry, these dudes look depleted.
The moral of the story: to look good, have good genes (sorry if you didn't get these) and don't rely on arbitrarily restrictive diets to make you look good (and Christian Bale is great example of how restrictive diets can make you look skinny and awkward, though thank goodness he's recovered). All these actors? Rely on trainers that make them count calories to prepare for roles. Yeah, a lot of them use high-protein lower carb diets, but they would be out of a job if they relied on them, because unlike in diet book land, you have to actually look like your roles, you can't play a weight loss guru while packing a spare tire.
Dr Price was all about getting the maximum amount of nutrients from your diet... That's a good thing, especially for physical development of a child. His diet didn't exactly restrict foods with lots of sugar, grains, alcohol, vegetable oils and other causes of inflammation. He wasn't exactly sporting a six pack from the pictures I've seen...
So even though I believe in a lot of the things he had to say, I wouldn't be at all surprized if he died of a heart attack.
I also wouldn't give 2 cents for vegan nutritional advice nor do I give any credit to their propaganda.
1:52 He bashes the author of Wheat Belly. I don't care if you're vegan, vegetarian, south beach or atkins wheat is bad for you. This guy has good points in that low carb isn't necessarily going to facilitate perfect health for everyone but clearly doesn't have a grasp on what a proper diet is regardless. Also Weston Price died at 78..
Also, I watched that video twice; The tune is catchy.
Eat a mediterranean diet, exercise a little, avoid mcdonalds and pizzahuts and all. Try to avoid stress and drugs, pharma and recreational. Youll be heathy like me.
Anyone know off hand how many of those veggie authors were ever obese?
The evidence is largely stacking up in favour of a vegan diet if health is what you desire. Mark sisson is on the testosterone and drinks coffee for his energy which isnt real energy its stimulating the adrenal glands, the heart speeds up to expel the toxin hence why it is a diuretic. High carb diets are the best for energy and health. There have been a few young fit Paleo athletes die recently and the clinical data agrees these outcomes! I started a high carb vegan diet about 6 months ago my energy is through the roof I'm fucking lean as a grey hound, my abs are hanging out more now than when i was training as a professional athlete. friends have all noticed my skin is glowing and my girlfriend who also eats the same and suffers from anemia has always had thin hair and now its thickening up. So I suggest you push yourselves out of your comfort zone and give it a try! Vegans that are fat eat WAY to many high fat foods like nuts seeds avocados olives and oils if you avoid those things you shred up fast! Good luck everyone!
Way to compare actors who have to look good and work towards that end, and people who could give a sh@t what they look like. Dishonest to say the least. How ugly are these vegans> http://features.peta.org/sexiest-vegetarian-2012/Winners.aspx
