Frank Mir didn't just say it's about size.
[Vegan diet] kept my weight down. But honestly, my body fat wasn't as low – I got a little bit softer. I was getting injured a lot more. I felt a lack of 'umph.' But I was very determined to try and be a healthier person.
EDIT: I know I shouldn't post this, but what the heck.
Actually, I do train for hours a day.
Usually over 10 hours a week, I have to keep my weight in check for competition.
You don't know anything about me or my background aside from what I've posted, yet you keep jumping to conclusion after conclusion; making judgement after self-serving judgement.
Nothing I say is going to make a difference to you, your mind is already too closed.
For your own sake, I hope you're not like this in person.porpoise
thanks for the site.
still looking through it.
they make some pretty bold claims.
that baby picture at the top is freakin me out.
BTW- that study misrepresents the Okinawan diet. I know, because that's where I'm from.
During WWII, the indigenous pig supply was largely killed off (their main source of food outside of rice).
Americans shipped them more pigs, but for about 20~30 years afterward, while the domestication program was getting back up to speed; pork became somewhat of a luxury.
Now that the pigs are back, people are returning to their normal eating habits.
This includes traditional Okinawan favorites like So-ki soba, Goya Chanpuru, Okinawa Soba, pigs ear, Okinawan-style Yakisoba, etc, etc, etc.
They eat more pork than I do.
They also tend to drink pretty heavily.
They live a long time because they have a very "nan kuru naisa" (don't let it get to you) attitude about life and an "ichariba chode" (siblings from the first time we meet) attitude about people.http://www.cholesterol-and-health.com/China-Study.html
Starting to realize I have absolutely no place on this thread; I can't expect people to respect my decisions.
So with that, I'm going to exit stage left.
