27th July 2013. weight after 100 days 136.9 weight lost 101.2lb ; that's 105.6lbs since I stopped the 'diabetic eating for health'

"Hair samples analysed shows that 200 Roman gladiators found in a burial site were all vegan!"
The meat eaters must have slaughtered all 200 of them.
I have seen this sort of argument used by vegans many times. It goes that X population does not eat meat (even though it may be because none is available or they can't afford it it, but would buy it if they could), therefore they are vegan. No. They are poor people who can't afford or otherwise have no access to meat.
I think it's more likely they ate a nutritionally deficient diet of barley because their gladiatorial overlords would rather of eaten the meat themselves rather than "waste" it unnecessarily on their gladiators/slaves. The harsh truth of it.
