Friend: So you lost weight what are you doing?
Me: I am a fruitarian, so basically I live on fruits.
Friend: Fruit makes you fat, you liar!
If people think fruit (carbohydrates) makes people fat, then do they think protein and FAT make people thin?
Pork crackling makes you thin...
Then there's the 'fish is good for your brain' myth when the opposite is true due to the mercury.
Even some in the paleo area regard low-carb to be rubbish...
the paleo diet is the complete opposite of living life like Grok.
First of all I am pretty sure Grok hunted his own wild animals and ate fruits since it helped give him energy.
The Paleo diet is nothing but a scam considering WE are nothing like we were 1000 years ago.
Early humans were primarily gatherers, not hunters as has been taught. No need to hunt when you can just eat an apple.
The Paleo diet did not exist, it is modern.
Read the World Peace Diet by WIll Tuttle, he explains the advent of herding culture thoroughly.
The start of the book is a bit slow and too spiritual for me, though the middle is excellent, the end becomes somewhat boring and again spiritual but not unbearable, overall a lot of valuable information sandwiched in there.
yeah, hear you my friend with hunters, same in here about gatheres...
I just reply, well our genome change more than few tousand years ago...so I am ok, noone in that time was having weapons and heat and cooker by his weist titen up:D.
Bdw. try to replay on the subject of this, well I tell the mamals not to then eat fruit and grass, coz they need to continue eating milk:D.... yeah it is great bussines, coz it is more calorie dense and more hormones, but I dont want to live that fast life, leave it for your my freind, I got more patience in life, too much buty in the world, to live fast:).
and cooking for hygine argument I say, well I will tell it to a friend with a baby nursing to do it why she get flu, or even better that she better feed chemical prepared artificial milk "a sunar:D" ;).
I had a talk with my friend about this. He basically thought of things with sugar as things that gave him a sugar rush and things which didn't as not having it. Basically he (whom I tried to correct) and most others have redefined sugar to mean refined sugar essentially, sugars that are concentrated unnaturally to give a sugar rush. Thus fruits do not contain their redefined 'sugar' while their foods do. It's basically lots of people who redefined a word unknowingly. So the term is 'accurate' in a sense between them, but not between them and people who know the proper definition. It's essentially a basic language problem where a word is misused so much that its definition among a subset of people changes and becomes 'erroneous', but still has a meaning. Kind of like 'chili' which has also widely been redefined and people say 'chili' when it would really be more accurate to say 'vegetarian chili' or something.
Yes, I have been reflecting in this direction, redefining my personal image of "carbohydrates".
hahaha, my mum always argue how sweet my foods are, that she would eat it, if I dont put that much dates in:D....
yeah people are on rush with lifestyle in general, that dont make one comftible as well....
about bf. My bf. said to other around, please make here eat something, she drink all the 3days blended orange.... he think it is not food I guess...
maybe if you sit her down and explain to her how much you are eating and how you are getting enouh cals / show her crono-meter stats, she will lighten up. theres a fine line between being concerned and being hurtful <3
