CLQPeople cut out sugar and junk food on whatever fad diet they are on and then think that it's this specific diet that makes them feel good. Why don't you try adding some fruit and veg and get back to me. thanks
friesWhere do you get your vitamin C?
DylanGBanksHistory would suggest that humans evolved to have an omnivorous diet rather than a carnivorous one.

goldlionhttps://www.quora.com/Are-humans-technically-carnivores-or-omnivores worth a quick read if you're curious to question that. while it's not an academic journal, it's well-referenced and is hard to argue against. from the way our body parts work to the way our cells behave, there is much evidence we were designed primarily to eat meat and can tolerate plants when needed to survive.
AndrewGravesSVWe might've been designed to eat meat because we needed high energy density food but that doesn't mean you can't get that from a plant based diet. We live in a different world now where you can make and get a much larger variety of foods than our ancestors and can cook many different meals using plants. I tend to look at just limiting my meat because of the environmental impact it can have
goldlion"let me continue to poison myself so i can virtue signal to others so that big brother will look down on me with kind eyes..." it's propaganda. you eating less meat isn't gonna do shit for the environment, that's like putting out a candle while the house is engulfed in flames (and that's assuming your own propaganda is correct...) .
and just because we CAN make all sorts of new foods now doesn't mean that our bodies can properly digest them. even if it's tasty, it's not necessarily what you should be eating if the option of red meat is available.
anyway i'm pretty certain my diet (all meat coming from this farm 2 hours away that supports sustainable/enviro friendly farming https://thousandhillslifetimegrazed.com) is having less impact on the environment than the average american by far.
goldlionheads up soy is downright terrible for you, but if you feel like the pat on the back that you give yourself is worth it, by all means...
this is meant to be about wellness, period. you seem to ignore that and consider 'earth friendliness' paramount. we're not on the same page here. keep in mind the ultimate 'carbon reduction' would be ending all human life on earth - by your virtues this would be the inevitable conclusion.
AndrewGravesSVFuck me for caring about the environment then, we are on different pages. Obviously I am advocating for the end of all human life by trying to eat less meat.
A lot of the Tennessee Titans went vegan this year and had a great playoff run trusting a plant based diet. More and more athletes are switching in general. These are people whose bodies are their entire livelihoods and who require the best fuel for themselves. You can even avoid soy if you want because you didn't mention the other foods I listed. I dunno why you think soy is so bad in the first place.
I didn't even consider throwing you the article from the vegan doctor because you might scream bias.
I'm happy your diet is working for you and your acid reflux is down among the other benefits. If it works for you then keep on keepin on cause everyone is different
