Vegan and vegetarian propagandists claim that red meat and other animal flesh rots in your intestines. Where did they get this idea from? Does animal protein/flesh get fully absorbed by your body? Does it digest more efficiently than fibrous plant... (more)

Yeah, humans can pretty effectively digest meat. Actually, so can certain apes: To investigate the capacity of chimpanzees to digest meat, feeding trials were carried out on three captive chimpanzees (Pan troglodytes) using a fixed amount of... (more)

Not really saying how dumb they are but it's got to be hard for a vegan to get enough choline and DHA. For example, how do you get 550 mg of choline, the recommended minimum for an adult male, without eating egg yolks or liver?

I heard this said on Joe Rogan's podcast when Robb Wolf was on there. Seriously, since no animals are harmed or killed to get them, how are vegans against eating them at all?

Vegans, in general, from a philosophical perspective, believe that retaining ANY animal in captivity for the purpose of providing food for humans (including, for truly strict vegans, using honey -- which they consider 'stolen' from bees), is... (more)

I've unfortunately never been Vegan or really met a Vegan. The other day I was eating lunch with a cousin and was ear hustling the guy seated behind me talk about his recent conversion to Veganism and how he lost 30lbs in 3 months. He was... (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)

Are your political beliefs influenced by what you eat? Fascist-devil-worshippers gravitate towards warm blood, vegans to cold flabby soy. In the former case aggressivity is enhanced(meat et.al), in the later decreased: hence a more effeminate... (more)

well since Adolf Hitler was a vegetarian, I doubt that you can so easily generalise, and say that vegetarians are all peace loving hippie folks...I mean, perhaps some are, some are not..... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Adolf_Hitler%27s_vegetarianism (more)

I have nothing against vegans. I mean, eat the f* what you want to. I don't care, unless you're a friend or family member, but even then I'm not in their face about it. I am not an evangelist, preferring to lead by example. I figure when I get... (more)

On my blog (www.urgeschmack.de) I use three methods 1) delete if insulting 2) ignore if insignificant 3) ask about credible sources if they make any claims about health issues. The trolls never come back. Those who are seriously interested... (more)

There are people who want to argue our diet on ethical grounds rather than just health grounds. How do we respond?

A simple response to the animal rights argument is that, although Paleo is obviously not as pleasing to an animal rights extremist as veganism or vegetarianism, it is still far more animal-friendly than SAD. Paleo tends to advocate organic,... (more)

It seems that many paleos are ex-vegans and given how far apart the two diets seem should this be a surprise? You would think that they are at completely opposite ends of the diets spectrum but I'm inclined to think that ideologically they are... (more)

I think we share some ideas in our reaction to CW and modern factory farming but I think my main opposition to vegetarians and vegans comes from a different place. There are a lot of high profile people in the vegetarian spectrum who are pushing... (more)

It's getting pretty heated over there between the paleo/ancestors and the fruitarian types: http://www.giveittomeraw.com/profiles/blogs/fructose-myths-debunked?xg_source=activity&id=1407416%3ABlogPost%3A1397165&page=4#comments This is... (more)

Why would fruit be unhealthy? And why would it not be considered paleo? If the answer from the low-carbers is "It's high in carbs. It has a sugar called fructose." Well I don't think that's convincing at all. The difference between paleo and... (more)
