      You might not die of a heart attack ... but you'd probably die of boredom!

        I don't know about heart-attack-proof but that diet will give you alzheimer's and other brain diseases like nobody's business.

          "Anthony Yen, an entrepreneur who emigrated from China and came to love the fried foods, meat and deserts of the American diet, adopted the Esselstyn program in 1987 after undergoing bypass surgery"

          They don't eat meat in China?

            No because you see, the Chinese have Chinese medicine, which is all yin-yang, which means they have a healthy mindset, which means they don't eat meat.

              Someone should tell the Chinese that. A friend of mine recently went home to visit her family, and she kept posting pictures of her food on Facebook--pretty much any animal you could imagine eating, cooked in about a million different delicious-looking ways. She shared one meal that consisted of 5 or 6 different kinds of meat. And we're not talking "meat as seasoning" dishes, either.

                I read this article over a plate of eggs and meat.

                  In order to survive without meat (survive, not thrive) you would need much of the processed crap which vegans eat OR year round access to many seasonal foods from around the world. The Tarahumara have neither.
                  Has anyone actually looked up their diet? I'm quite certain it's meaty in some way.
                  In all of the universe there is only one person with your exact charateristics. Just like there is only one person with everybody else's characteristics. Effectively, your uniqueness makes you pretty average.

                    Alex, a quick Google shows they are migratory herders (transhumance) who raise goats, sheep, and cattle. I would assume they eat animal products since there's not much point in herding them otherwise.

                      Did a "vegan experiment" for 6 weeks earlier this year after ready about the Engine 5 diet ... written by this guy's son. The first week I felt good. I think it was a nice detox of the sugar I was eating. Then the bad stuff started happening. First of all I did not lose any weight after the first week. Second, I developed a horrible red blotchy bumpy scalp condition. Third, I had no energy for my workouts. I ditched the whole thing one day when I was craving protein so bad I could have eaten an entire side of beef! I decided that day that I was surely a carnivore and accepted that. Shortly after that I found this site. I am here to stay! PS my scalp is back to normal and I can eat all the beef (grass-fed that is) I want to.

                      PSS...hubby, who has had high cholesterol forever jumped on the PB bandwagon and his numbers are now in the normal range. It is pretty amazing.

                        My husband's cholesterol is also excellent since he went primal (he is most of the time), but his LDL is very low and he is on niaspan to raise it. We'll know in a few days if it's working. I am totally biased towards Primal and think Paleo/Primal is definitely the way to go.
