I don't mean to be disrespectful to anyone's belief systems, I really don't, but I have to ask some questions. Why exactly is white sugar and orange juice supposed to be good for you? And why are salmon and avocados bad? I have read thousands and thousands of reputable health books and websites over the years and have never heard of such things. Please enlighten me. Thanks.
    I've never heard of Ray Peat, but from your post he sounds like a wacko.

    Is he an Americans? There are a lot of wackos in the US.

    Don't put your trust in anyone on this forum, including me. You are the key to your own success.

    Just want to pipe in to support Zach a little on this one. Vegetarians/ vegans can be quite healthy and I won't hate on them for choosing to eat that way. Just as long as they leave me to my healthful choices and don't call me a murderer for eating animals.

    I would also like to remind Zach that it is the same for low carb eaters, they can be quite healthy too, same with low fat eaters.

    The truth is humans have one of the most robust, versatile, digestive system in the animal kingdom.

    The biggest reason I see for our ancient ancestors to prefer meat instead of plant nutrients would've come down to time, not wich one was 'better' for us. Animals can provide a whole day or more of sustenance with only a small amount of time invested. To sustain off of roots, tubers, grains, nuts, plant tissue and fruits would've taken a large time investment. Grok wouldn't have thought in terms of health (every thing was healthy) it would've come down to variance and time.

    Humans have completely different dental structures and intestinal systems to carnivores, herbivores, and omnivores. However, our teeth are perfectly formed for gripping and biting fruit.

    I read somewhere that we evolved as scavengers: that makes the most sense to me.
    "I think the basic anti-aging diet is also the best diet for prevention and treatment of diabetes, scleroderma, and the various "connective tissue diseases." This would emphasize high protein, low unsaturated fats, low iron, and high antioxidant consumption, with a moderate or low starch consumption.

    In practice, this means that a major part of the diet should be milk, cheese, eggs, shellfish, fruits and coconut oil, with vitamin E and salt as the safest supplements."

    We may have been scavengers very early on, smashing skulls and large bones for marrow. Our digestive systems share far more in common with carnivores than herbivores. But I'm convinced we developed language and grew these large brains (with our predisposition for enjoying stories) as ways to communicate when hunting in groups.

    Just to confirm: I wasn't using that as a pro-vegetarian statement. I believe it's healthier to have animal protein in the diet (to balance out the fruit ) I think early man would have eaten plenty of grubs, and scavenged the meat from larger animals.

    Vultures and termites are scavengers, and both travel in groups.

    Opportunists, that's what we where. Scavenging would've been part of that. I believe we are the 'jack of all trades' animal. Our bodies are built to take advantage of opportunity, we aren't really specialists at anything.

    Our digestive system has many tools and I believe perfect health comes from using all of them. Eating plants would've been natural for ancient man, as would've eating animals. How much of what, when & where would've all depended on opportunity.
