Interesting.

I just found out about some nut going by "The Food Babe" that apparently is popular. She had a blog post saying that the pressurized cabin of an airplane is not good for the body because it squeezes the organs. Her lack of understanding that airplane cabins are under pressure relative to the outside air at 35,000 ft, but is at much less pressure than we normally experience is indicative of her lack of overall knowledge of science.

Anyhow, the OP link reminds me of that. For an idea to have credibility, it needs to list sources as proof. An anecdotal story is really not compelling at all.

It is interesting. Eskimos used to subsist on like 95% meat so I know it's possible. But I wouldn't have guessed it's healthy. I have to say those are the best-looking 50-yr-olds I've ever seen. But is it photoshopped?

Only the guy is fifty[seven].

R. Buckminster Fuller lived for decades on a diet of steak, jello, (variously spinach or prunes) and so much tea that his skin turned orange from the tannin. He could walk and talk anyone into the ground right into his eighties.

Anyone on this site that has ever met me would confirm that I am not a pudgy person. And I don't claim to be any kind of expert when it comes to diet. But I can personally say from my own experiences that I felt better when I dropped things like pasta, bread, etc out of my diet. High protein/no carbs works, but in my case I still ate vegetables. I had a steak and spinach for dinner tonight. It may not be for everyone, but hey, try it for a week and see how you feel. It won't hurt to try it, and it may work great for you. The biggest problem I have found is that when you stick with meat and veggies, you are always hungry. All those pasta/bread carbs you are used to make you feel full. So I can eat a steak/pork chops/chicken/fish with a green veggie side, and I will feel great. But I'm still hungry. Everyone's body reacts differently to what you fuel it with. I'm sure I could get away with only meat for a while, but there's this thing called scurvy haha, don't mind me as I eat a bit of broccoli or have an orange once in a while, cause I really don't want to lose my teeth!

And if you want to see someone that has a 20k calorie a day intake need, check this guy out. Bodybuilders/Strong Men are like Top Fuel dragsters - there's a lot of research that has gone into them, and while they are the extreme of the aspect you are looking at, they are still full of info.

Much of our medical science isn't much above anecdotal, GRAS is a good example, as is the amount of positive affects from a drug to be considered usefull.

In any event our prehistoric ancestors lived on mainly meat because vegitable matter was hard to get in any QTY.

Traditional Eskimos live on 100% meat during most times of the year.

Generally people who live on 100% meat tend to have a better cholesterol balance, lower triglicerides, normal blood sugar and fewer infections.

Statements above are from 100 years of anecdotal evidence.

Most people have allergies to wheat and dairy to one degree or another, eliminating them from the diet can certainly have large affects on your wellbeing.

Daily physical exercise should be enough to lead a healthy life; no matter the choice of diet. As long as you burn off the excess calories your body does not need, you are good to go. A couch potato, no matter the diet, will not be a healthy individual. Oh and drink a good quantity of water every day.

Years ago, I ate 3,500 calories a day, which I upped when I wanted more than 153 pounds on my 6'2" frame. That was actually when I started eating vegetables. I had a huge bowl of vegetable soup with some chicken last night, but I lost at least ten pounds recently by cutting out dairy and gluten.

I really want a grilled cheese sandwich!

I need to get to the VA and see if they will be useful regarding my periodic stomach problems. Soldiers were telling me I had Celiac. I am still having pains, but not as bad.

Honestly, I do not know how much gluten and dairy have affected, compared to eating less again.

Apparently, my stomach shrank, and I am not as hungry as I feared being for years, but I do not find any satisfaction in only eating half a plate for each meal, hence the large bowl of vegetable soup.

Also, not being lazy would help. I have a PT test on Sunday and I have run twice in six months. I am four feet from a treadmill!

She suggests not eating anything that an eight year old can't pronounce.

Well, there goes zucchini... cyanide, I believe, is safe.
