By average SAD-er, I don't mean someone eating McDonalds everyday and drinking soda, I mean someone eating oatmeal and OJ for breakfast and maybe turkey sandwich on wholegrain bread with low fat cheese/margarine for lunch(in other words,... (more)

Yes, but not because they're vegans. They're healthier because they remove all the shitty food that SAD people eat, not because they removed animal products. Veganism is the one of the most restrictive diet on the planet and when you restrict... (more)

For example, even though people have supposedly evolved eating meets and vegetables or whatever, does that mean that vegetarianism is wrong for human consumption? I just think that, even though I follow and appreciate the paleo diet to an extent,... (more)

The biggest flaw is in the belief of something as a "diet" instead of a "lifestyle". A Diet implies it is an offshoot of what is normal. A key fallacy is the notion that there aren't food sources that are available to modern humans that can't... (more)

I'm interested in trying the paleo diet/lifestyle since I've started getting interested in fitness, and alot of people seem to have been very successful with their fitness routines while following a paleo type diet. My trouble is, perhaps due to... (more)

Hi Everyone. How can you tell the difference between your body is having an allergic reaction (or is intolerant to a food) and when it is just reacting to a new food that it hasn't eaten in several years? The reason I ask this is because after... (more)

An allergic reaction, is a response by your immune system against a particular food. Now unless you where born with a "true food allergy" to all those foods (which I doubt), it is highly improbable that you are having an allergic reaction, as you... (more)

http://michaelbluejay.com/veg/natural.html I'm pretty new to paleo, I decided to eat this way after I found out I had celiac disease, but I'm not sure how to counter some of the arguments for an ideal human diet being vegan. Here are the points... (more)

The idea that humans lack taste receptors for amino acids is not correct, now that glutamate is recognized as the driver behind foods having a "umami" taste. There's also developing research that certain amino acids (like arganine, glutamine,... (more)

I've been following the feud between vegans and paleo eaters for a while, yet my intuition naturally throws me into a median position. I would therefore like for someone to "hack" this simple evidence towards one or the other tip of the scale. In... (more)

How many of you tried raw veganism before you switched to Paleo? Why did you switch? I tried it for several months, felt great for the first few weeks then felt like I was starving. Considering the only protein source is nuts and I am intolerant... (more)

I've tried it, became extremely cold, extremely pale, had mood swings, ... I think it was mostly due to a protein deficiency and a lack of easy-to-absorb animal nutrients (especially fat-soluble ones). There is no science backing up such a diet,... (more)

I'm interested in trying out a paleo/primal diet for weight loss and anti-inflammatory reasons but I'm wondering how much I can actually incorporate into my diet given limited financial resources. How much meat do you really need to eat to be... (more)

I think 1/2 lb to 1 lb per day is best. See http://perfecthealthdiet.com/wp/wp-content/uploads/2009/03/Food-Plate-600dpi.jpg. Also, eggs and dairy can displace meat from the diet and are inexpensive. (more)

I wasn't vegan for a very long time- perhaps close to a year- but that was enough time for me to figure out it wasn't working for me at all. It's hard to talk about to other vegans. Because veganism is supposed to 'work' - I think because you... (more)

I have great respect for Carl Lewis, like Steve Jobs, so I'm not trying to bash him! According to wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Carl_Lewis Carl Lewis adopted veganism in 1990. Since 1993, when he was just 32 years old he suffers from... (more)
