    Who says back fat is a bad thing? Maybe on a hairy guy at the beach, but not on a crab.

    That's it, for the whole day, following primal? I'm a big guy and I've eaten more animals in my lifetime then you could probably eat in 3. I really don't care how many animals you eat. I can only be responsible for my own thoughts and level of awareness. Also, If I start falling apart and think eating animals is the answer I will eat them again, no problem. I posted to this forum to get an answer on a question about the origins of man. Where did man originate? Where did Grok live? I figured man originated in the tropics (or at least not some cold place) and where fruit could grow all year round. As man grew in numbers and spread the seeds of fruit around, the fruit grew even more and was ample. Somehow we moved away from the equator. How did that happen? When did that happen? I didn't want to post this on a vegan forum where people would jump over each other to applaud my thinking and agree with me. I want someone to get an answer on this.

    Have you ever tried a vegan lifestyle to know it's unhealthy? There is just as much convincing information out there that veganism is healthy. There are plenty of people out there who are longtime vegans in great health. There are also plenty of people who went vegan and they sware that it destroyed their health. Also every vegan diet is different. Were these people eating enough calories? Too much fat? I don't know, and want to find out the truth for myself, so I'm trying it. I feel much better so far.

    I feel ok supplementing b-12 because we would have gotten this from eating bacteria in dirt, but since the dirt is not the same anymore and we don't eat it, we have to supplement. The b-12 I take is vegan.

    The idea of consuming without any reverence for that which is consumed is pretty modern, too. Vegans want to think it is more moral to eat plants but what it really is is less guilt-ridden for them, more inline with modern ideas of consumption being unlimited and free of guilt, while what they consume is actually destroying entire ecosystems and killing more creatures incidentally or purposefully than were they to eat meat. But at least they don't have to think about it.

    Have you ever tried a vegan diet? No and I don't want to. I won't do strict paleo either because I love cheese and I don't see any reason to give it up.

    That said, there are periods of time, often during the summer, when I eat mostly vegetarian for a week or so but there always comes a point when my body starts telling me to eat meat right now and I listen.
