This is interesting advice. Maybe it explains why my meat-centered approach works so much better for me. Bananas and fruit don't really have all that many vitamins. And vegetables don't really either because their versions of vitamins aren't as well absorbed as the versions in various variety meats. I eat a lot of organ meat and variety meat, usually something strange every day. So my meats are high in vitamins and other odd substances you can't even get from plants like essential fatty acids, real vitamin A and D, collagen and gelatin and CoQ10 among other things.
