What irritates me is a community of people that is supposed to be embracing an evolutionary diet, then ignores 1/3 of the food on Earth that we evolved on.
This community as a whole thrives on obsession. We need to be counter-culture. We love shock and awe. I guess that's why this "extreme" lifestyle attracts us? So our friends can marvel as we eat bacon and put butter in our coffee so it's taboo and anti-conventional wisdom?
People around here love to throw the Inuit up on a pedestal for their diet. However, they ignore that the Inuit are a recent culture, they STILL ate 15% of their daily calories from carbohydrate (which is more than the keto people around here) and the overwhelming majority of traditional societies eat more carbs than fat.
People around here love to point out that we don't NEED carbohydrate to survive, but they leave out how we don't NEED saturated fat or cholesterol to survive, either. That's how vegetarians manage to limp by - their body will convert carbs into the fats and sterols they need to survive, just like our bodies will convert proteins into the glucose we need to survive. At the expense of our own health and longevity.
People around here like to say the brain can run on ketones, but they fail to mention that ketones are only supplemental - your brain always runs on glucose, even in full-blown ketosis.
I take issue with the hypocrisy. Eat all whole foods. Your body wants a little bit of everything - fat, protein and glucose. Start 33%f/33%p/33%c and adjust accordingly until you feel best.
