how about the where do you get your protein diet... seen as everybody keeps asking. Haha, it's funny because I hear how people get annoyed about hearing that question, and i've been on this just under two weeks and have already been TOLD that I am not getting enough protein hahaha. I should have given them the list of research tools i've looked into.
Mini novel aside, I think you are right. It is slightly misleading/confusing. Frugans is pretty cool actually :)
yes the protein comment is SOO OLD and even doctors ask this which makes it really aggravating. It is almost like doctors nutritional knowledge ended from information pre 1960.
LOL! That is a hard one Vincent:-D
I could drone on and on about this one and having been trying to find the answer since 2009!
You are right that Vegan could mean anything as long as one avoids animal products. But binging on salty fatty fried potato chips is unhealthy in more than one way.
If I tell people fruitarian, then the debate comes in should we eat only fruit, and are we missing nutrients in greens, nuts, seeds, and other plant food materials.
I like to use the word frugivorous to describe the diet. That would mean something like pertaining to a diet high in fruits, but does not restrict me to eating fruit flesh only.
I personally feel best eating almost all raw n fruity. But not to scare people off, I sometimes say high raw diet. That gives them mental freedom to explore without feeling restricted.
Although I personally love the analogy of calling this a monkey diet, then the argument comes in that primates eat 1-5% of their diets from animal products or insects. So from the ethical vegan perspective that does not work either.
If most people would start eating like monkeys though, it would be a good start in improving their health, and take a big big step in the animal rights direction.
It isn't fruitarian?
Fruitarians eat 100% fruits (no greens, nuts (not sure), veggies,...).
What about sweet vegans?
Oh yeah :-/
There is so many diets...
I don't know how to call the guys I was describing. Maybe strict fruitarians?
haha I have no idea!
maybe it could be called the "kind diet" kind for ourselves and every living being
then we no longer have to argue about protein minerals fiber etc as the ethics are untouchable even against any slick statistics or short term studies or fancy doctors on tv etc.....
Nice ...but Alicia Silverstone's already taken it...The Kind Diet
Vegan is good enough for me.
Carbivore lol. That's what a lot of the high fat crew call us ;) I like it.
