    Ah, the Wai diet. This diet is what eventually led me to raw paleo.
    I never know what to put in these things. I write songs!

      Thanks for just showing up and dropping links with no context for your first post.
      If you had a good point I'm really not inclined to try figure it out.

      Is it just the old generally accepted thing that charred meat is slightly carcinogenic?

      Alright. So?

        Dangers of meat cooked at high temperatures = overconsumption. There's nothing like a steak seared super fast at super high eat. Crispy and charred on the outside, rare on the inside. More, please.
        Don't put your trust in anyone on this forum, including me. You are the key to your own success.

            In all seriousness, does anyone have a link to a good article that explains the use of cooking in its historical context? As far as I know heating up our food is what discerns us from other animals, but I have never really read much about this so would appreciate any pointers to articles or books that debunk the raw food argument.

              I love this line as a pitch for ....well anything!

              "Of course it's very difficult to imagine how life on the Wai Diet feels without actually experiencing it. It's like trying to explain an orgasm to someone who never had one......"

              Isn't that the best freaking sales pitch ever?

                Cooking Gave Humans Edge Over Apes?

                There are absolutely loads of articles on how cooking food helped us evolve. Our teeth and digestive tract are designed to eat cooked food. It unfolds the amino acids and helps us break up the food, it also lets us eat larger quantities at once because they are easier to chew. Scientists say our evolution took a huge step when we started eating cooked food, which allowed us to eat bigger quantities more quickly, took less pressure of the intestinal tract and gave more to the brain.

                  Cooking meat does produce carcinogens but I don't think they're much of an issue if the rest of your diet is ok. It's pretty well accepted that it's best to avoid char grilling meat.

                      I am reading a very interesting book now called "Catching Fire. How Cooking Made Us Human". Pretty much destroys all raw food arguments and shows cooking was just a logical and necessary evolutionary step for humankind. This obviously doesn't mean that it doesn't matter how you cook your food.
