    To be fair, we don't know if he was a pasta/sugar chow hound during his life...betcha he was.

    Found this video from several years ago. I bet he was aware of his own HBP, and though very muscled you can see he is also carrying fat. HBP pounding the circulatory system for years. Atherosclerosis probably. Sad, he was an interesting guy.

    Primal/Paleo is not for everyone, it's for those who have committed to understand.

    So... we're figuring it takes about 4 years to kill you then?

    Really sad. But you know that part is going to get lost in the PC shuffle. Unless, of course, they spin it so that being a vegetarian is the only reason he didn't die sooner.

    The sad part is he missed out on all those great meat dishes. If he was going to die anyway, then he might as well have enjoyed the food.

    The other thread had this link:
    Michael Clarke Duncan Goes Veg, Wants You to Know He’s Stronger Now | Frugivore Magazine
    the article said he went Veg because of ongoing struggle with diseases, so he was probably in a bad condition inside when he went veg.

    That's what I was thinking, he had his disease before going veggo. I bet if he had read Primal and absorbed some of Mark's thoughts he would have pushed himself away from veganism: the legumes, soy, etc. Bet Primal could have saved him. Probably ate SAD most of his life before becoming an herbivore.

    Honestly, I doubt his issues were legumes and soy. To maintain a huge frame like that, he has likely been eating a huge diet for his entire adult life. Tons of protein, fat, sugar....everything. Honestly, people aren't supposed to be that big. Very few people of huge size live a normal life expectancy.

    If he had eaten a primal diet, but still maintained his massive bulk, I doubt his life expectancy would have changed much. We'll never know, but it's just not healthy to be 300 lbs., whether it is muscle or fat.
