    Your assumption is correct,
    Just needed to confirm you weren't talking about Atlantis , dolphins, aquaman etc.

    Recent research indicates that O is not the 'oldest' type after all. I think it was A(but I'm too lazy to go look it up, sorry!).

    Kale lovers LOVE kale haters...it means more kale for US!

    Yep, meat centric does not mean exclusively meat.

    I'd be concerned about protein intake, Nora Gedgaudas also holds the line about adequate protein, not excess, so my feelings are it's a bit too far on the fringe, but if that's what rocks your boat, then rock on.
    I agree with Nora about protein, for the record. And I am not trying to do Inuit reenactment. As Dr Ede pointed out, there are many meat centered diets in various HG societies throughout the world.

    I'm a proponent of aquatic evolution -- the idea that our ancestors branched from other primates as a result of becoming semi-aquatic. We would've gone from bananas to oysters.
    Yes, that's why I don't eat wheat. I'm not saying that eating veggies and fruits is something we have to evolve to do, we always did eat them. I'm just saying that we wouldn't have bothered with veggies unless starving.

    As for Bananas, well again I assume you are speaking figuratively as they are indigineous to Papua New Guinnea and were only spread throughout the world in the last 300 years.
    Don't confuse him with facts and stuff. Also I totally agree that seafood should play a large role in a healthy primal diet.

    You are more than welcome to all the kale I will never eat for the rest of my life. All yours.

    Ok, thanks for the swipe. I will never use bananas as a stand in for fruit. Or use a metaphor or simile or analogy.

    Whew! It took a couple days but I JUST finished reading the thread. Some very interesting items here. I personally think I am happier sans the veggies. I have never been an all veggie person (even during my vegetarian state-eek). I have been branching out more into the offal. PB, funny you brought up the petburger.. I was going to ask you about that. Is it richer with the organ meats then?

    Interesting, but it doesn't really hold water, the hypothesis is a bit leaky at this point in time.

    Regarding fibre, one should take "The Fibre Menace" within the context that it is specifically related to those individuals with damaged GI tracts in need of repair.

    In a healthy GI tract with the appropriate microbiota the bulk of both solouble and insolouble fibre is fermented and releases Short Chain Fatty acids (SCT's).

    There is a twofold advantage in this:
    1/ The SCT's are directly absorbed by the colon and can be utilised to power the colon on site, bypassing and reducing the load on the vascular system.
    2/ The fermentation process produces a significant amount of heat, which reduces endogenous thermoregulation demand.

    When you add these two together it is basically a significant free energy supplly from the microbiota through an outsourcing of digestion arrangement.

    Oh, just joshin ya. Just shows what you get around here when you post before fact checking.

    Yes, USWM Petburger tastes like really rich hamburger. I don't know how much of this is due to the high fat content and how much is the organ meat. But it does not taste like liver. If you have liver phobic people in the house, they would never know if you didn't tell them.

    True but one does not need to subscribe to the Aquatic Ape Hypothesis as such in order to see that humans always have and still do congregate by bodies of water. It is much easier to harvest shellfish than to run down a large mammal. But I don't think it has to be either/or. Sea food and sea veggies are still very prominent in my carnivorous diet. (As mentioned earlier, sea veggies are really algae as opposed to plants and as such get a free pass from some factions of the carnivorous community.)

    Yes, but who gets the benefit of those SCTs, us or out little gut micro-budies?

    Fiber menace does specifically say that it is not anti-fiber as long as that is soluble fiber that comes along with naturally ingested foods. It is mostly against the rampant overuse of fibre as a laxative and fiber as a bulking additive in products. So, it does say that if your gut is healthy there is nothing "wrong" with eating a salad.

    I just question beyond "wrong" to "is it necessary or even beneficial?"

    I'm not sure I want anything fermenting in my intestines, thankyouverymuch. We are perfectly capable of thermoregulation without a gassy vat of fermenting celery fiber to help. And why can't the body supply SCTs to the colon via the circulatory system? Why is having it produces in situ beneficial? It is beneficial for the microbes. They love it. I eat to feed ME, not some freeloading microbes.
