[QUOTE]Have you ever heard of Paul Check and Metabolic Typing?[/QUOTE]
Yup... I think different diets work for different bodies. I was a damn fat vegan.... I'm not sold on Primal or Paleo being everyone's answer.
I did that metabolic typing and it is spot on to what works for me. I can't do the higher fats, need the proteins and carbs.
[QUOTE=Misabi;1175544]Don't see the problem with that. I don't feed anything to my dogs that I wouldn't/don't eat.
They just get less fruit and veggies than me.[/QUOTE]
No problem with that. Problem is when it's said in a derogatory manner. Saying both you and your dog eat quality food is a lot different than implying many people are eating the lowest form of foods on earth fit only for lesser mammals.
There's a lot of mythology out there about "traditional diets". Usually people cherrypick what they think people used to eat. Or still eat. But most often it completely ignores how people actually eat.
If you learned about "Indian" food at a yoga retreat where they cook lots of healthy vegetarian food to serve to healthy students of yoga, you might be surprised to hear that real Indians eat lots of fried food, and have issues with heart disease, diabetes, and other diseases of civilization. There's also a common misconception that the traditional Japanese diet is mostly vegetables, seaweed, fish, and tofu. Or that any of these groups eat much brown rice.
The funniest I ever saw was a woman on Denise Minger's blog who sincerely believed that "the Asian diet" is an extraordinarily health diet that exists in Asia and is eaten by all Asians.
[QUOTE=j3nn;1175294]You habitually refer to plant foods as horse fodder and now birdseed, does that mean the carnivorous foods you prefer are dog chow? I think your contempt for plants goes a bit far.[/QUOTE]This was my light hearted way of describing veganism. Sheesh. Untwist the knickers a bit before you cut off your circulation.
[QUOTE=Derpamix;1175495]Well she does eat the same things as her dog, so probably.
I think it's cute, to imagine them eating out of the same bowl.[/QUOTE]I have even referred to my eating plan as the "Things My Dog Likes Too" diet. He loves coconut, avocados, berries, etc. in addition to the eggs, meat, and dairy.
So we do have very similar tastes but he does get a separate bowl. It would be hard for him to reach the table.:p
[QUOTE=Kool;1175177] Okinawan people of Japan who tend to live the longest of all populations. They tend to eat vegetables the most, sweet potatoes and rice for starch, very minimal meat like pork which is eaten for special occasions, some fruit, lots of seaweed, some fish, and very little fat and dairy. They also eat moderate levels of tofu and beans.
Except for the tofu and beans it sounds pretty primal to me. Lots of fresh produce, no gluten, no manufactured foods, no seed oils, no sweating over what food to eat - just what is fresh and available locally. Primal and paleo don't prescribe a set macronutrient ratio.
Okinawans really like sea snakes.

No! Keep 'em twisted!
The original poster sounds like a vegan troll.

Some people just will not accept the superiority of meat and organs to fodder.... their loss ;)
