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)

YES!!! It will!!! Meat is really terrible for your colon, if you've been ingesting it for a long time it's a good idea to do a colon cleanse!

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 agree with Melisa. We cant force our beliefs ob everyone even though we know that Paleo diet and good exercise has such a huge positive benefit on our lives. I hope that one day everyone can see just how beneficial the paleo diet can truly be.... (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 was a vegan for 8 years. The first two years years were spent raw vegan, the last four were spent as a gluten-free vegan. It was... interesting. I finally met other vegans during the last four years- and they were all about making vegan "cool".... (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)

Wrestle them. And I always win even though I only weigh 108 lbs! Seriously though, ignore, ignore, ignore. Unless you can manage a public witty put-down, I always enjoy those.

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

My 20 year old niece has just gone vegan. At the moment I'm keeping my mouth shut - I think any kind of lecture will be counter-productive. I might lend her mum The Vegetarian Myth by Lierre Keith though and hope she leaves it lying around.

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)

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)
