    I truly think it depends on the person what the right mix of whole foods is. No one should eat processed.... but in the realm of meat, fruit, veggies, dairy- it's all good. I mean there are people who's health changes for the better when they eliminate meat... It makes sense that some flourish when they eliminate fruit.
    Oh, I agree with this--there are people who definitely seem to thrive on VLC (paleobird comes to mind), which pretty much requires eliminating almost all fruit except possibly berries in small quantities. Certainly someone with fructose malabsorption is going to feel a whole lot better if she skips the fruit bowl.

    But I think the fruit thing is blown out of proportion. There is a massive difference between a fresh, organic apple and a spoonful of HFCS, just as there's a massive difference between grassfed steak and a processed hot dog made with CAFO mystery meat.

    I genuinely believe that if people were raised from childhood eating quality meats and eggs, fresh fruits and vegetables, and healthy fats, along with a reasonable level of activity, we would see very, very few people with metabolic syndrome or other diet-related diseases.

    I think you've said it before, Magnolia--it's not the bananas that were the problem.

      Just a point of clarification for the record. I do not necessarily eat a VLC diet just because choco says I do. He also thinks I have an eating disorder just because I watch my carbs and don't wolf down pounds of sweet potatoes at a time.
      LC yes, VLC no.
      VLC is helpful for getting into ketosis and I experiment with that. I don't always live there permanently.

      just sayin..........

        Sorry paleobird, I thought you were doing full-time VLC for ketogenic purposes. My mistake! Either way, I don't think you have an ED, just that you have specific health reasons for avoiding too many carbs, just like I have to be extra-vigilant about gluten as a celiac and can't afford the "cheats" that some other people can.

            No problem, I have talked about ketogenic diets for therapeutic purposes in dealing with my epilepsy with less medication. But this is not something that I have put into full time action yet. Still in the research phase.
            It's just that choco and some others tend to paint anyone who watches their carbs as some kind of zero carb extremist.

              Meh. I'm a rice-eating heretic, you're an extremist, but we can all be friends over steak and a bowl of berries.

                Most people can't understand the wheat issue because the media keeps telling them they don't need to go gluten free to lose weight.
