Relax, we're not all out to get you dude.
I don't consciously follow paleo (I love potatoes & beans too much to consider that).
Like I said, some of my food may fall within paleo guidelines, but it's not by design - zedrics.com if you're interested.
I'm fine with my 3 meals a day meal plan and have been fine with it since February, no hunger pains, lots of energy (more than enough for a grueling training camp).
Do I really need to photocopy my blood work from a couple months back to show that I'm healthy?
It was when I went vegetarian for almost 2 weeks that I became super hungry.
Every Sunday that I don't eat meat, by the evening I'm starving and end up snacking on unhealthy stuff.
As far as the research papers, half were directly from pubmed, the other half a mix of indirectly through pubmed and a web search.
Loren Cordain's a PhD.
Gary Null's a PhD.
They don't agree... so what, big hairy fat deal.
No need to throw accusations.
I have no idea how selfishness, poverty, and gulf war veterans suddenly became relevant to this conversation.
This is not a conspiracy and I'm not towing a paleo party line, sorry.
I have absolutely no idea what you're talking about with the Steve-O thing.
My nickname is from kung fu
FYI, the tofurky I had was oven roasted deli slices.
Some fake meat products are passable, some are not so good, those slices were the worst yet.
I generally like morning star fake chicken, veggie burgers, soy "pork" eggrolls, and veggie tamales.
In addition to the lunch meat, I tend to stay away from veggie chorizo and some of the sausages.
As far as taste preference, am I just supposed to eat food that tastes bad my whole life?
I suppose if I have some sort of nondual realization, I could be perfectly happy eating horse sh!t the rest of my life, but I'm definitely not there yet.
You do what works for you, I'm going to do what works for me.
I understand maybe there are some ethical concerns with the way I eat.
I'm doing what I can and I'll take personal responsibility for the outcomes.
With all due respect, it's not really your call to make whether what I'm doing is enough.
