Like many of you I'm sure, I spend a lot of the day researching different approaches to nutrition and I found this interview from ABC. I agree that once food becomes everything, you can start to become mentally unhealthy, but that is possible for any type of diet. It is all about the mindset that the person brings to it. I know that realistically I could eat a 100% perfect raw vegan diet if I chose to do so, but that still doesn't change external factors beyond my control that could affect health, so I don't freak out if I eat cooked food or have a little extra fat with my meal.
The thing that pisses me off about this interview is how ignorant the main guy sounds. "Americans are eating more and more meat and are living even longer than ever before!" Where did he get these statistics and is he blind? We are one of the most obese nations in the world! His comments just keep getting more and more ignorant throughout both parts of the interview. I wanted to laugh, but it was just too sad. I would love to see DR do a video on clowns like this.
